Virginia Tech Hokies Walk Off Again! This Time It’s Liberty for the Sweep

The Flames are a really good team, and this wasn’t going to be a midweek practice session. Liberty has 30 wins and wanted to add to that total at our expense. That almost happened with 1 out left in the game. NOPE! GO HOKIES!!!

Virginia Tech Hokies Sweep the Wildcats of Villanova- But It Wasn’t Easy

The Wildcats came south from Philly to meet up with the Hokies on the turf at English Field for a non-conference late season weekend set. Was it three or two games?

Virginia Tech Hokie Baseball Has a 3-1 Weekend with a Series Win over #18 UNC

Virginia Tech Hokies Take Two on an Abbreviated Weekend Schedule: #12 Notre Dame goes down - VMI follows

Look this was going to be a really difficult trip to the Great Lakes and the home of the #12 Golden Domers. Mother Nature won the series, but Tech took the first game in a complete surprise. Then went to Lexington to play some ball at VMI. 2-0 is a good thing. GO HOKIES!!!!

Virginia Tech Hokies Grab an ACC Series Win Over Pitt, and then Radford to Snap the Slump

The Hokies take the series against Pitt, and then beat Radford for a 3-1 weekend/mid-week combination.

Virginia Tech Hokies Drop First Game, but Win the Series with Wright State; 5-11, 9-3, 17-1

The Hokies nab a series win against the visiting Wright State University Raiders, but not before dropping the opener. They came roaring back for the final two contests, though. Sunday was a Hokie Home Run Derby. ECU comes on Tuesday, then on the road to Atlanta to open the ACC season against the Jackets.

Virginia Tech Hokies Rally to Win the Tuesday Game with High Point: 10-4

The High Point Panthers usually play a few games against the Hokies. It’s a short trip for a Tuesday. For a lower division team, they are usually a challenge, and they came to play - but the Hokies played better.

Virginia Tech Hokies Earn Their Second Sweep Beating Fordham: 12-0, 8-2, and 7-3

It’s almost time for the first pitch, this season it will be at English Field (at Atlantic Union Park). The 2022 Hokies are looking to improve upon their basically par season performance in 2021.

Virginia Tech Hokies Baseball Season is only a Month Away

Virginia Tech Hokies Baseball Sweeps #15 Pitt Panthers: 5-1, 8-4, and 8-4

Well, I sure can’t say that I didn’t warn everyone to stay away from the panic button. Baseball is a marathon of ups and downs and of sine and cosine curves of offense and defense that clash and cooperate on their own schedules. Tech takes a week off, and regroups. Travels to Pittsburgh and flies away with an impressive sweep in the other guys’ house. GO HOKIES!!!

Virginia Tech Hokie Baseball Drops 3 of 4 and loses 2nd ACC Series

Virginia Tech Hokies Lose Their First ACC Series 1 - 2 to Florida State

Ugh. In the great sine curve of baseball, You eventually cross the 0 coordinate and things just want to head to the negative side for a while. Let’s hope this is a short visit. The Hokies drop game one in a close one, win a shutout in game two, but then stumble out of the gate and never recover for game three.

Virginia Tech Hokies Split with the VCU Rams: 10-9, 7-10

A mid week multi-game series is a bit unusual for any season, but this is the remnant season of the truncated 2020 affair, so these things happen. The Hokies manage a split with VCU winning the first game in an exiting walk off, and never really getting within striking distance in the second.
