BLACKSBURG, Va. (March 9, 2022) – The offensive firepower by the sixth-ranked Virginia Tech Hokies proved too much for ETSU Softball as the Bucs dropped an 18-2 decision Wednesday afternoon in Blacksburg, Va.
Virginia Tech scored the game’s first eight runs in a span of three innings, carrying an 8-0 advantage headed into the top of the fourth.
ETSU was able to score its two runs in the top of the fourth, beginning with a bases-loaded, one-out walk drawn by Savannah Ricketts (Hixson, Tenn.). The very next at bat, Riley Tucker (Mount Pleasant, N.C.) delivered her sixth RBI of the season with an RBI ground out, bringing home Riley Nayadley (Ooltewah, Tenn.).
The Hokies immediately responded with 10 runs in the bottom half of the fourth, putting to bed any hopes of a Buccaneer upset.
