ACC Recap for April 10th

Here is your ACC Recap for April 10th.

Florida State 3 UNC 2

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – No. 25 Florida State (20-10, 8-6 ACC) scored two runs in the bottom of the ninth to cap a dramatic 3-2 come-from-behind victory over second-ranked North Carolina (26-8, 9-6 ACC) Friday night under the lights on Mike Martin Field inside Dick Howser Stadium. Rafael Lopez broke a 2-2 tie with one out in the ninth sending a sac-fly to center, deep enough to score D’Vontrey Richardson from third for the game-winning run.

Trailing by one entering the bottom of the ninth, Florida State put together a one out rally against North Carolina starting pitcher Alex White. After allowing just one run on two hits through eight innings, the Seminoles were finally able to get to White in the ninth registering three straight singles. Mike McGee started the rally lacing a sharp single to center. He moved to third a batter later on a single to right off the bat of designated hitter Tommy Oravetz. After Oravetz was lifted for pinch runner D’Vontrey Richardson, Richardson moved into scoring position on a passed ball. James Ramsey then stepped in as a pinch hitter and brought home McGee for the game-tying run as he beat out an infield chopper to second.

Virginia Tech 5 Maryland 3

COLLEGE PARK, Md – An RBI triple and a solo home run by Steve Bumbry was enough to lift the Virginia Tech baseball team to a 5-3 win over host Maryland on Friday night at Shipley Field.

The center fielder’s two hits were just a part of Tech’s 12 total, as left fielder Klint Reed, catcher Steve Domecus, right fielder Mike Kaminski and second baseman Michael Seaborn all provided two base knocks apiece.

The Hokie pitchers also did their part, limiting the Terrapins to six hits on the night, which was just one hit shy of a season low for a Tech opponent. Starter Rhett Ballard went seven innings to earn his fourth win of the season, allowing three Maryland runs on six hits and five walks. Lefty Dave Zappacosta and righty Ben Rowen combined to hold the Terps hitless over the final two frames, with Rowen picking up his first save as a Hokie.

Virginia 3 Georgia Tech 2 (4th inning/Suspended)

ATLANTA – Friday night’s baseball series opener between No. 8 Georgia Tech and No. 11 Virginia was suspended in the bottom of the fourth inning due to heavy rain and hail in the area.

After sitting through a 78-minute rain delay at Russ Chandler Stadium, officials decided to suspend the remainder of the game until Saturday at 3 p.m. The two teams will resume play with Georgia Tech batting in the bottom of the fourth.

Virginia took a 3-1 lead in the top of the fourth inning with a solo home run by Jarrett Parker, a run-scoring triple by Phil Gosselin and an RBI single from Steven Proscia, but Tech narrowed the gap to one in the bottom of the frame and were threatening to score again when the game was postponed.
