DURHAM, N.C. -- Zane Evans had three hits and Kyle Wren tripled and scored, but No. 5 Virginia hit three home runs en route to an 8-2 victory over the Yellow Jackets Thursday at the ACC Baseball Championship in Durham, N.C. Each team is now 1-1 in pool play.
The seventh-seeded Jackets (34-24), who are the reigning ACC Champions and beat No. 7 Florida State Wednesday, lost for the first time in ACC postseason play since 2011. Third-seeded Virginia bounced back from yesterday's loss to sixth-seeded Virginia Tech to remain alive in Pool B and improved to 46-10.
Georgia Tech must beat Virginia Tech Friday at 3 p.m. to remain alive. The Jackets advance to Sunday's ACC title game with a win over the Hokies combined with a Florida State win over Virginia on Saturday.
