UVa Tops Boston College 6-4 In ACC Tourney Opener

GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) -- Jarrett Parker's two-run single highlighted a three-run eighth and lifted Virginia past Boston College 6-4 Wednesday in the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament.

Phil Gosselin and Dan Grovatt homered for the Coastal Division champion Cavaliers (46-10), who won their third in a row and will face Florida State on Thursday in pool play after BC plays Miami.

Tyler Cannon tied it at 4 in the eighth with an RBI single off Taylor Lasko. Three batters later, Parker's single up the middle off closer Matt Brazis broke a 4-all tie and scored Gosselin and Cannon.

John Spatola hit a two-run homer during a three-run seventh for the Eagles (29-27). They had the tying run in scoring position with two outs in the ninth before Kevin Arico struck out Matt Watson.

    Hope either Virginia Tech or Clemson wins it all and anybody but N.C. State. Glad to see UNC did'nt get in at all!
