OMAHA, Nebraska (AP) -- Daniel Pinero's sacrifice fly scored Thomas Woodruff in the bottom of the 15th inning to give Virginia a 3-2 victory Tuesday night in a game that matched the longest in the College World Series' 66-year history.

Pinero fouled off two squeeze-bunt attempts against Trey Teakell before he lofted a fly to center. Cody Jones' throw toward home never had a chance. The Cavaliers' bench and bullpen emptied, with everybody mobbing Pinero near second base.

Virginia (51-14), which had a walk-off win against Mississippi on Sunday in nine innings, plays Friday in its bracket final. TCU (48-17) plays Ole Miss in an elimination game Thursday.

Artie Lewicki (8-1) got the win and Teakell (6-1) took the loss.

It was the longest game, as measured by innings, since Southern California beat Florida State 2-1 in 15 in the 1970 national championship game.
