This weekend the Hokies hosted another top five ranked opponent in Blacksburg. Tech defeat UVA 2 of the 3 games played.
The Hokies lost the home opener on Friday night.
Due to inclement weather coming into the New River Valley on Sunday the teams played a day-night double header to wrap up the series.
The Hokies swept the doubleheader to go on and win the series against the Wahoos’.
The team was led by the starting pitchers for both games who shut down UVA’s high potent offense. Joe Mantiply improved to 4-0 after tossing seven strong innings, allowing only 3 runs. Clark Labitan later came in for the five-out save.
Devin Burke got the start for the Hokies in the rubber game of the series. Burke pitched 7.1 innings, allowing four runs. Burke improved his record to 7-3 on the season.
Andrew Rash had a perfect day at the dish going 3-3 with a triple, a homerun, and 2 RBIs. Jack Joyce came in for the final inning to shut the door on the Hoos.
The Hokies will next play Boston College in Chestnut Hill. The next two ACC weekends will be critical for the Hokies’ ACC tournament hopes.
