BLACKSBURG, VA--The Broncs lost to Virginia Tech Tuesday evening. "I thought we competed well," said Rider head coach Barry Davis. "We could have won the ball game. We had opportunities."

The Hokies (13-4) scored five runs in the sixth inning on three hits, two walks, two hit batsman and a pair of wild pitches to take an 11-8 lead. "It started with a base hit and got out of hand," Davis said. "We had the tying run at the plate in the ninth. They had two big innings and we're not playing a full nine innings."

For the Broncs (5-7), junior Steve Galella (Wilkes-Barre, Pa./G.A.R. Memorial) had two hits and three runs batted in, while junior A.J. Albee (Ashley, Pa./Hanover Area) also had two of Rider's eight hits. "Galella had a good day," Davis said.  "A.J. had a good day."

Rider freshman Joe Calogero (Cherry Hill HS West) started and pitched five and one-third innings, allowing five earned runs and left the game with an 8-6 lead. "Joe did okay once he settled down," Davis said. "He's doing a good job."

Senior Nick Wojnowski (Baldwin, Md./Calvert Hall) doubled and scored to key a three-run fifth inning as the Broncs took an 8-6 lead. "We were right there with them," Davis said. "Wojo had a good hit there for us."

The Broncs tied the score at 5-5 with two runs in the fourth inning with two outs. Junior Karl Johnston (Hamilton/Peddie) doubled and scored on a hit by sophomore Brandon Cotten (Wiconisco, Pa./Williams Valley) and Albee singled, stole second and scored on an error.

Galella hit a two-out, two-run single in the first inning to give Rider a 3-0 lead after four of the first five Bronc batters drew walks.

Junior John Ralston (Annandale, Va./Paul VI) also singled and scored a run.

Va. Tech took a 4-3 lead in the bottom of the first on two hits, two walks, an error and a sacrifice fly.

The Hokies out-hit Rider 10-8. "This team (Va. Tech) can hit," Davis said.

The Broncs take on Va. Tech again Wednesday evening before traveling to Longwood for a four-game series beginning Friday.
