RICHMOND, Va. — For the first time in almost 14 years, a Virginia Tech baseball game ended in a tie, as the Hokies and Richmond Spiders battled back-and-forth to a 10-10 draw in 10 innings on Tuesday afternoon in nonconference action at Pitt Field.

The game was called due to darkness as the ballpark does not have lights.

Virginia Tech (6-7-1) was led by Sean Keselica, who had three hits, five RBIs and collected his 100th career hit as a Hokie. Mark Zagunis had a four-hit day for Tech, with two runs and two RBIs, Alex Perez scored three times and Brendon Hayden also had two hits, a double and triple, scored twice and drove in two.

The last time Tech played to a tie was back on March 16, 2000 at George Mason, when the teams ended the game tied at 6-6.

The Hokies continue a busy slate as they will welcome both VCU and Pittsburgh to English Field the rest of the week. They will face the Rams on We

dnesday (5:30 p.m.) and the ACC newcomer Panthers, for the Hokies’ ACC home-opening series, this upcoming weekend, which starts at 5:30 p.m. on Friday.

Virginia Tech meets West Virginia on May 6 at Hunnicutt Field in Princeton.
