Virginia Tech 9 #12 Miami (FL) 7
BLACKSBURG, Va. – First baseman Ronnie Shaban blasted a go-ahead three-run homer in the bottom of the seventh inning as No. 25 Virginia Tech rallied for a hard-fought 9-7 Atlantic Coast Conference baseball victory over ninth-ranked Miami at English Field on Friday. The win snapped a seven-game Miami winning streak.
Tech, which improved to 22-10 overall and 7-6 in the ACC, battled back from a 6-1 deficit to tie the game with a five-run sixth inning. After falling behind again in the top of the seventh, the Hokies rode Shaban’s long ball to the lead. Tech staved off the Hurricanes’ final bid in the ninth thanks to the quick reflexes of relief pitcher Ben Rowen, who snagged a hard line drive hit back to the mound with Miami runners at second and third and two outs.
