Miami beats Va. Tech in baseball

BLACKSBURG, Va. — Virginia Tech took a 2-0 lead Sunday against 24th-ranked Miami, but the Hurricanes scored the rest of the runs to win 9-2 and sweep the three-game weekend series from the Hokies at English Field.

Both sides had nine hits, but Virginia Tech (14-15, 5-10 ACC) was hampered by four errors.

The Hokies scored in the first inning by stringing together three singles, a runner by a fielder’s choice, and a hit batter. Designated hitter Phil Sciretta’s two-out hit with the bases loaded produced the two runs.

After that, Miami (21-12, 11-4) pitcher Bryan Radziewski struck out seven Hokies and scattered five other hits in his seven innings of work to get the win. The Hurricanes took the lead 3-2 in the third on an RBI single by Brandon Lopez, who went 2 for 4 at the plate overall.

Virginia Tech starter Jon Woodcock did not survive the third inning and took the loss. Four relievers followed him, with Sciretta pitching the ninth and being tagged for three earned runs in Miami’s five-run outburst.

Saige Jenco had three hits for Tech, while Sean Keselica and Sciretta each had two.

The Hokies are scheduled to play at VCU on Tuesday evening.
