ACC rules don’t allow for an inning to start within a certain time of a team’s flight departure time. So, In kiss-your-sister mode, Virginia and Georgia Tech completed the final game of the three-game set with a 4-4 tie at Russ Chandler Stadium after playing nine full innings.
Per ACC curfew rules, which were based on the departure time of a commercial flight back to Charlottesville, the teams were unable to start an inning after 4:15 p.m.
With the tie, No. 18 Virginia stands at 28-7-1 overall and at 9-6-1 in the ACC. Georgia Tech, ranked eighth in the country, is 21-8-1 overall and 10-5-1 in the league.
Dan Grovatt (So., Tabernacle, N.J.) had three hits and an RBI for Virginia, who finished with 10 hits. Three of Virginia’s four runs came on two-out hits.
