Josh Cribb returned to the mound as a starter after a short stint in the bullpen. Cribb took the mound with a purpose Tuesday night pitching a complete game shutout to lead the Tigers to a 7-0 victory over Virginia Tech. Cribb had six strikeouts to only one walk, while only allowing six hits. It was the first ACC shutout by a Tiger pitcher since 2001 when Steve Reba shutout Georgia Tech.


Offensively, the Tigers got off to a slow start. Stan Widman got things started in the fifth inning with a single. He later stole second and advanced to third on a bad throw. Herman Demmink laid down a safety squeeze to score Widman, and Demmink also reached safely after the ball was dropped at first. Brad Chalk followed with a bunt single. Taylor Harbin then hit his 20th double of the season to plate Demmink. Tyler Colvin closed the scoring in the fifth with a sacrifice fly to plate Chalk.


Adrian Casanova added some insurance in the ninth inning. Casanova hit a two run home run for his third of the year. Casanova led the Tigers on the night with two hits. Tyler Colvin added a two-run single to finish out the scoring for the Tigers.


The Hokies chose to pitch around Andy D'Alessio on Monday night. D'Alessio was hitless with two walks.


In the series finale, Coach Leggett will start either Robert Rohrbaugh or Kris Harvey. Both are ready and could come out of the bullpen if the other gets in early trouble. The Tigers will look to win its first ACC series in three weeks.
