Va. Tech 6

CLEARWATER, Fla. — Former Virginia Tech ace Carrie Eberle recorded a save to help her new team beat her old one on the first day of the St. Pete/Clearwater Elite Invitational on Thursday.

The game was called after six innings because of the lopsided score.

Eberle, who joined 2019 Women's College World Series participant Oklahoma State (3-2) as graduate transfer last summer, allowed one run in two innings.

Mackenzie Lawter belted a three-run homer to give the Hokies (4-2) a 4-3 lead in the bottom of the second. But the Cowgirls answered with four runs in the third to grab a 7-4 lead.

The Cowgirls scored seven runs in the top of the sixth to extend the lead to 14-5.

Losing pitcher Keely Rochard struck out 11 batters in 5 1/3 innings but allowed 10 hits, including three homers, and 10 runs (eight earned).
