Virginia solves Strasburg and San Diego State

San Diego State pitcher Stephen Strasburg struck out 15 in seven innings, but Virginia scored two early runs and that proved to be more than enough in a 5-1 victory over the Aztecs in the opening game of an NCAA Division I baseball regional at UC Irvine.

Strasburg, who is expected to be chosen No. 1 overall in the major league draft, gave up a first-inning home run to designated hitter Phil Gosselin and a second-inning run on Jarrett Parker's run-scoring infield single.

San Diego State (40-22) pulled to within 2-1 on Chis Wilson's sacrifice fly in the eighth, but Steven Proscia's two-run homer against reliever Andrew Leary in the eighth gave the Cavaliers (44-12-1) all the cushion they would need.

Strasburg (13-1) gave up eight hits and did not walk a batter.
