VIRGINIA 8, Cal 1 – Unbeaten Tyler Wilson carried a shutout into the eighth inning, Virginia used a four-run sixth to break open a close game and the No. 1-seeded Cavaliers eliminated California from the College World Series with a 8-1 victory on Thursday night.

Virginia (56-11) will face defending national champion South Carolina in the Bracket 2 final. The Cavs would need to beat the Gamecocks on Friday and again Saturday to reach next week's best-of-three finals.

Kenny Swab singled and came around to score on a three-base error to start Virginia's big sixth inning.

Wilson (10-0) allowed five hits over his career-high 7 2-3 innings. Cal starter Dixon Anderson (4-4) took the loss, failing to get past the third inning for the third time in five starts.

Virginia, which batted .246 with just three extra-base hits in its first two CWS games, got 11 hits off five pitchers.
