ACC: Pitchers' Duel
By Glenn Tanner - May 24, 2007
After three and a half innings in the day two opener in Jacksonville, Virginia leads Georgia Tech 1-0.
Like yesterday, everything hit in the air today is getting knocked down by the wind.
Virginia's Sean Doolittle has dominated. Doolittle has faced only nine hitters through three innings. He has allowed only one base-runner, a leadoff walk to start the game to Danny Payne, but Payne was erased on a double play.
GT's Eddie Burns only allowed one hit in the first three innings and struck out four, including a backwards K to end a 14-pitch at bat by Tyler Cannon that closed the third.
Cannon ran into trouble in the top of the fourth, though. Brandon Marsh led off with a double -- his drive short-hopped the wall in left, the closest thing we've seen to a home run here this week. Doolittle, also the UVa DH, walked, and Brandon Guyer loaded the bases with a perfect bunt single to third. David Adams then brought across the first run of the game with a sac fly.
