Former Comet Andrew Abbott got his first collegiate start Tuesday in Virginia’s 10-9 win over VMI.

Prior to his start, Abbott had worked 4.1 innings of relief in two appearances.

Abbott held the Keydets to one run over the first three innings and struck out the side in the second inning. He exited prior to the fifth inning after surrendering three runs on three hits in the fourth.

For the game, Virginia jumped out to a 10-1 lead, and then VMI scored the game’s final eight runs, including three in the top of the seventh to pull within one.

The Cavaliers flipped the script on VMI who scored the game’s first seven runs in last Tuesday’s matchup. Virginia scored the first eight runs over the first three innings, including a five-run first frame. The Cavaliers sent nine batters to the plate in each of the first two innings. Virginia did all its damage in the first inning with two outs.
