Hokies Hold Destiny In Their Hands After Clutch Win Against Clemson

After Justin Wright's stellar pitching performance in the first round of the ACC Tournament, Virginia Tech looked to their offense to get them past the number two seed Clemson.

Scott Weisman, starting pitcher for Clemson, lasted only three innings after giving up five runs in the first inning to the Hokie bats.

Buddy "Hot-Sauce" Sosnoskie (I made up that nick-name for him, it just fits) went 2-3 with 3 huge RBI for Virginia Tech.

Virginia Tech crushed four home-runs in the game against Clemson. Sean Ryan, Austin Wates, Buddy Sosnoskie and Andrew Rash all belted homers against the Tigers.

The starting pitcher for the Hokies was Matthew Price who went 4.1 innings while giving up three earned runs. Virginia Tech ace, Ben Rowen, came in during the eighth inning and pitched a scoreless 1.2 innings while getting the win.

Virginia Tech got the win against Clemson with a final score of 9-8. Virginia Tech moves to 2-0 in the ACC Tournament and with a win over NC State will play Florida State or Miami for the ACC Championship.

As a side note, this is Virginia Tech's first trip to the ACC Tournament since joining the ACC, and would be an excellent sign for the future if the Hokies won the ACC Championship.
