No. 5 Hokies even series with No. 7 Louisville
Staked an early lead by Gavin Cross hitting his 12th home run of the season on Saturday, the No. 5 Virginia Tech baseball team held off No. 7 Louisville, 4-3, to even the teams’ top-10 ACC series at English Field at Atlantic Union Bank Park.Cross was sound on both sides of the ball for Virginia Tech (35-11, 15-9 ACC), which defeated Louisville (35-14-1, 16-9-1 ACC) for the first time since the Cardinals joined the league in 2015. Tech’s third-year outfielder homered to account for the first two runs of the Hokies’ three-run third inning, later inducing the timely 8-4 double play during the eighth inning that wiped the bases clean for reliever Henry Weycker.
