ACC: No-no, shutout, and lead are history

By Glenn Tanner - May 24, 2007

Sean Doolittle's no-hitter is gone, his shutout is gone, and his lead is gone. After five innings, Virginia and Georgia Tech are tied 1-1.

Doolittle had struck out four in a row, including the side in the fourth, but Wally Crancer lined a clean single up the middle on an 0-1 pitch to lead off the fifth. He moved to second on a sac bunt and, one out later, scored on Tony Plagman's single.

Virginia had a good chance to add to their lead in the bottom of the 4th, but the Cavs put on a how-not-to-execute-small-ball clinic. The Cavs had two on with none out, but Tyler Cannon's sac bunt attempt ended up as a force-out at third, and then Mike Mitchell was thrown out attempting to steal third on a play that looked like someone missed a hit-and-run sign. A strikeout ended the inning.

The skies are darkening a bit, so rain may become a factor later.
