ACC: One Down
By Glenn Tanner - May 23, 2007
Virginia got great pitching from Jacob Thompson and one big inning to beat NC State 6-1 in the first game of the ACC Tournament.
Thompson was just consistently efficient all game -- he pitched eight innings, allowed five hits, an unearned run, struck out three, walked one, and never faced more than four hitters in any inning.
Other than the sixth inning, the Cavalier bats were pretty quiet, but that inning they sent 11 to the plate and produced six runs and six of their ten hits on the day. Tyler Cannon, Sean Doolittle and David Adams led Virginia with two hits each.
Clayton Shunick was the losing pitcher. He allowed nine hits and six runs in 5.1 innings. Ramon Corona had three hits for the Wolfpack.
And now it's raining and the tarp is going on the field.
