The Hokies scored first in the fourth inning as Chris Hutchinson doubled home Addison Bowman. In the bottom of the inning, ODU tied the game as Jared Musolf doubled home Jeff Eure (Pillow, Pa.).
The Monarchs took a 2-1 lead in the sixth when freshman catcher John Oehler (Audubon, NJ) doubled home Jason Greiner (Wexford, Pa.).
Monarch lefthanded starter Brian Ross (Portland, ME.) left the game in the seventh, fanning five and walking no one. He was hit by a line-drive on the side his pitching hand. Virginia Tech tied the game in the ninth as Kevin Bice singled home John West with two outs. Bice led the Hokies with three hits on the day as did Musolf for the Monarchs.
