Logan Michaels homered among his three hits and Andrew Abbott struck out 10 batters in six innings to lift Virginia to a 6-0 romp over Tennessee on Sunday in the 2021 College World Series in Omaha, Neb.

Michaels belted a towering solo homer in the third inning off Chad Dallas and added an RBI single to ignite a four-run seventh for the Cavaliers (36-25).

Abbott scattered five hits and walked just two batters before exiting after 104 pitches (66 for strikes).

Zach Gelof, who had three hits, joined Chris Newell and Max Cotier in adding an RBI single in the seventh inning for Virginia.

Michaels capped the scoring in the ninth inning after crossing the plate following a double play.

Pete Derkay recorded two of the six hits for Tennessee (50-17), which sustained its first shutout loss since April 16 versus Vanderbilt.
