Yesterday was the day that Virginia baseball fans had been waiting several days for, until it wasn’t. The Cavaliers fell to Duke, 4-3, and were effectively eliminated from the tournament. What happened in the games before and after?
Second-seeded North Carolina run-ruled Boston College 10-0 in seven innings, thanks in part to a two-run triple from Ashton McGee in the top of the first.
Third-seeded Wake Forest rallied from 4-1 down in the ninth to eventually go ahead 5-4 on an error from Georgia Tech. The Deacons held on in the bottom half of the frame to get the win.
Top-seeded Louisville made it look easy against Notre Dame, winning 10-3 and keep alive their hopes of winning the ACC title in their home city.
For Friday’s games as they relate to the knockout round, it’s simple. The winner of Miami-Wake Forest (11 a.m.) and UNC-NC State (7 p.m.) will play each other in one semifinal, and the Louisville-Florida State winner will play Duke in the other.
