[I apologize for the lateness of this post, but blogspot was being uncooperative last night when this story was still fresh.]
Virginia Tech's men's baseball team waved farewell to their 2009-2010 baseball season yesterday with a loss against South Carolina.
Steve Domecus was Virginia Tech's lone offensive weapon going 2-4 with two RBI.
On the pitching end, Ben Rowen continued to impress with three innings pitched allowing one run (not earned).
The Hokies jumped out to an early 2-0 lead on the Gamecocks in the first inning but it was all South Carolina from that point on.
A six-run sixth inning for South Carolina would be enough to force relief pitcher Ben Rowen into the game sooner than the team had hoped.
The Hokies were knocked out by South Carolina: 10-2
The Hokies achieved a couple milestones this season, reaching 40 wins for the first time since 1999 and reached the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2000. Virginia Tech also has multiple top-200 ranked prospects in the upcoming MLB Draft, the highest of which being Austin Wates at #19 overall.
It was a fun and historic season for Pete Hughes and the Virginia Tech Hokies and I appreciate you coming to Orange And Maroon Insider for your Tech baseball.
In the coming weeks, expect more football talk in preparation for the 2010-2011 season!
