O'Donnell, Virginia drub Georgia Tech 15-1 in ACC Tournament


DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — Ethan O'Donnell went 3 for 5, including a three-run home run, and No. 2 seed Virginia rode an eight-run fifth inning to a 15-1 seven-inning victory over No. 11 seed Georgia Tech on Wednesday in pool play at the ACC Tournament.

O'Donnell's home run was one of three for the Cavaliers (45-11). Kyle Teel hit a two-run shot and Ethan Anderson went solo.

Virginia's Nick Parker scattered four hits over seven innings and remained undefeated through seven decisions. He struck out five and walked one.

Teel, Griff O'Ferrall, Casey Saucke and Anthony Stephan all drove in two runs for Virginia. Teel and Saucke had three hits each.

Angelo Dispigna hit a solo home run in the bottom of the seventh inning for Georgia Tech's only run. Aeden Finateri (2-4) took the loss after allowing six runs — five earned — in 4 2/3 innings.

Virginia plays No. 7 seed North Carolina (34-21) on Thursday. The winner will represent Pool B in the semifinals on Saturday.

The Yellow Jackets (30-27) lost both of their pool games.
