How the government's punishing of the exposure of official wrongdoing can linger for years

It's only when a team is having incredible success — such as earning a trip to the College World Series two out of three years — that these types of questions arise. But as Virginia prepared for another trip to Omaha, it was there.
Virginia pitcher Will Roberts not only overshadowed a big offensive day from teammate Danny Hultzen, he provided a tough act to follow. Roberts threw a complete game shutout and Hultzen drove in three runs to lead the top-seeded Cavaliers to a 6-0 victory against Navy in the NCAA regional opener.
George Washington's baseball team gave a good account of itself against top-ranked Virginia last week, losing by the thoroughly respectable score of 2-0. (One of the Cavaliers' runs was pretty chintzy, too - the result of a balk.)
"It's always great to get runs early and I think Danny drove in the first three runs," Roberts said. "That was big that we could get a lead and put them on their heels a little and be more aggressive."
