Going into Game 3 of the 2014 College World Series Finals, the series tied at one game apiece, UVA coach Brian O’Connor knew how he wanted the game to go and how in his perfect world he wanted it to end.

Nathan Kirby is the ACC co-pitcher of the year. Nick Howard is the first-round draft pick. Artie Lewicki might be the best all-around pitcher on the UVA staff. But make no mistake about it: Brandon Waddell is its heart and soul.

UVA and Vanderbilt can both put runs on the board. Vandy is scoring 5.64 runs per game in 2014; UVA scores 5.47 runs per game. But it’s in run prevention that both excel.

Ideally, heading into Friday night, with Virginia having a chance to win its way to the CWS Finals, Brian O’Connor would have Artie Lewicki on the mound in the first inning, but having already thrown four innings this week, at best he will be available for an inning or two on the back end.
