#11 Virginia Tech 17, Radford 2
Fifth-year shortstop David Bryant hit a leadoff home run against Radford, his former team, on Tuesday, setting the tone for #11 Virginia Tech’s 17-2 win.
Bryant, who hit 10 homers in his four seasons at Radford, circled the bases for the first time in a Tech uniform, homering on the eighth pitch of his first-inning at-bat against his former teammate, Foster Seitz.
Bryant went 2-for-3 for the Hokies with a walk, two RBIs and three runs scored before passing the defensive torch to rookie Clay Grady with the game well decided by the sixth inning.
With Tuesday’s 17-run outpouring – including its nine-run fourth inning – Virginia Tech (6-2) has now totaled double-digit runs during five of its six victories this season.
