Virginia Tech (16th nationally) lost their first game in the NCAA Baseball Tournament to The Citadel (30th nationally).
The Hokies starting pitcher was Justin Wright who pitched a complete game against Georgia Tech in the ACC Tournament. Wright had a rough outing against the Bulldogs giving up six earned runs in 5.1 innings pitched.
The Hokies' bats were silent the whole night batting .250 as a team. The only bright spots were Austin Wates who went 3-4, Tony Balisteri who went 3-4 with a run scored and Sean Ryan who went 1-5 and hit a two-run homerun.
The final score of the game was 7-2 in favor of The Citadel.
The Hokies will now play an elimination game against the loser of the South Carolina/Bucknell game.
Virginia Tech will have to win both of their games to have a shot at playing in the NCAA Super Regionals.
