Two huge home runs fueled Virginia Tech’s big sweep of Boston College over the weekend.
On Saturday, senior Erik Payne hit a grand slam to left center field in the first inning that put the Hokies up 4-0. Tech went on to win the game 6-3.
Senior Brendon Hayden was the hero in Sunday’s game. With Tech trailing 1-0 in the bottom on the ninth, he smacked a two-run shot off the right field scoreboard to give his team the walkoff win on Senior Day.
