ATLANTA – Scott Silverstein allowed a run and two hits over seven innings as the No. 4 Virginia baseball team earned a 7-2 victory over No. 17 Georgia Tech on Saturday afternoon at Russ Chandler Stadium. Silverstein (6-0) struck out nine and walked two in tying his career-long effort as Virginia (31-5, 13-4 ACC) evened the ACC series at a game apiece. 

Virginia pitchers combined to strike out 12 Georgia Tech batters and allow just four hits. Austin Young and Whit Mayberry each worked an inning of relief to finish off the victory. Georgia Tech starter Dusty Isaacs (4-3) took the loss after giving up five earned runs and seven hits over four innings. The Yellow Jackets (25-10, 10-7) used eight pitchers in the contest. 

Derek Fisher and Reed Gragnani each had three hits and three RBI for the Cavaliers, who picked up a dozen hits. The Cavaliers had runners on base in each of the final eight innings. 

The teams wrap up the series at 1 p.m. today. The game will be broadcast by Comcast Sports net locally. WINA 1070-AM will have the local radio coverage.
