Tech's Thomas shuts down Wahoos

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (CBS19 SPORTS) -- Georgia Tech's Connor Thomas was just named the national pitcher of the month for April on Tuesday. On Saturday, the Virginia baseball team found out why.

Thomas (6-3) recorded his third complete-game win of the season Saturday afternoon at Disharoon Park, giving up six hits and an unearned run while striking out seven as the Yellow Jackets beat UVA 5-1. The Cavaliers' lone run came on a two-out RBI single by Tanner Morris in the seventh inning.

Noah Murdock (1-2) took the loss for the Wahoos after giving up two runs (one earned) on two hits in four innings of work, his longest outing since returning from off-season Tommy John surgery.

With the loss, the Cavaliers dropped to 10-16 in the ACC, clinching the first losing record in conference play for Brian O'Connor in his 15 seasons at UVA. Virginia maintained its two-game lead on Virginia Tech for the final spot in the ACC tournament thanks to a 16-4 Miami win in Blacksburg on Saturday afternoon.
