BLACKSBURG, Va.- Virginia Tech used a pair of big innings to claim a 14-5 win on Tuesday afternoon in non-conference baseball action at English Field.

After taking a 1-0 lead in the first inning, the Hokies (11-6) pieced together a six-run second inning and a four-run fourth to move out to an 11-0 advantage.  The Keydets (8-9) countered with a five-run fifth, but could do nothing further against five Hokie relievers.

Tech starter Sean McDermott (2-1) lasted five innings, allowing five runs, two earned, on seven hits.  Keydet starter Michael Devine (0-1) surrendered seven runs on seven hits, failing to escape the second inning in his third career start.

The Hokies were paced offensively by Austin Wates’ 5-for-6 performance from the leadoff spot, while Buddy Sosnoskie was 3-for-4 with a double and three RBI.  Each Hokie starter had a hit, as Tech pounded out 23 hits off of five freshman Keydet hurlers.

Tanner Biagini and Jacoby Morley each went 2-for-4, while Brian Sandridge and Graham Sullivan doubled and scored a run in the five-run fifth.

The teams play the second of a two-game, mid-week series at English Field on Wednesday afternoon, with first pitch set for 5:30 p.m.
