RICHMOND, Va. - Cedar Crest graduate Derek Fisher cranked a long two-run home run with one out in the ninth inning to break a 5-5 tie and lift the No. 25 Virginia baseball team to a 7-5 win over Virginia Commonwealth Wednesday night at The Diamond in Richmond, Va.
Virginia trailed 5-4 heading into the ninth but tied the game on a Stephen Bruno double just before Fisher's heroics.
Fisher finished the game 1-4 with a walk and three runs driven in.
The win also was the 400th in the coaching career of Virginia head coach Brian O'Connor. He now holds a career record of 400-144-2 in nine seasons.Information used in this story is courtesy of UVA Athletics.
