Will a massive airline merger
mean local fares will go sky high?

Hokies were looking for 2 in a

rain wouldn't cause another long night.

Tech got on the board in the bottom
of the first. After Matt Hacker
tripled to right. Bryan Thomas would
fly out but it was deep enough to score
Hacker from third to put the Hokies up
1 to nothing.

Demon Deacons answered back in the
second as Grant Achilles goes the other
way with 2 runners on to tie the score
at 1.
