DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — Mark Zagunis homered with one out in the bottom of the ninth inning to give Virginia Tech a 3-2 victory over Florida State in the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament Thursday.

Zagunis' shot over the left field wall against reliever Gage Smith improved the sixth-seeded Hokies (37-19) to 2-0 in Pool B while dropping the second-seeded Seminoles (44-15) to 0-2 in Durham.

The Hokies took a 2-0 lead in the seventh on an RBI-triple by Zagunis, who scored on Andrew Rash's sacrifice fly.

Stephen McGee's leadoff double in the ninth sparked a comeback for the Seminoles. Casey Smit's ground-rule double scored McGee from third. Pinch-hitter Josh Delph singled to right and pinch-runner Brett Knief beat the throw home.

Reliever Clark Labitan (2-5) earned the win. Smith (4-1) took the loss, allowing three hits, including Zagunis' blast.

The Hokies play seventh-seeded Georgia Tech on Friday. Florida State plays third-seeded Virginia on Saturday.
