With Trip to Omaha at Stake, UVa Takes on Maryland

Last weekend, both UVA (ranked third in the country) and Maryland powered their way into the Super-regionals.  For Virginia, one of the premier programs in the country, this is the 5th time in 6 years they have got that far.  This weekend they meet in Charlottesville in a best-of-three series, which will surely be televised.  The winner gets a berth to the College World Series in Omaha.

Note:  I first saw Stephen Strasburg pitch in a CWS game where UVA beat him in the first round!  He gave up several runs in the first inning (sound familiar?).  That was in his last year at San Diego State, just before the Nats signed him.
