BLACKSBURG, Va. —Sophomore Kylie Aldridge put together a brilliant outing at the plate Wednesday, hitting two home runs to help power the No. 15/13 Virginia Tech Hokies over the Liberty Flames 6-5.

Junior Emma Lemley (7-2) got the win out of the bullpen for Virginia Tech (26-8-1). The right-hander went two innings, giving up two runs, both of them earned, on four hits, allowing no walks and striking out three. Sophomore Lyndsey Green started the ballgame and went five innings, surrendering one run on eight hits, walking one and striking out four.

Aldridge went 2-for-3 at the plate, supplementing his two home runs with two RBIs. Senior Emma Ritter added to Aldridge’s awesome power-hitting performance by going 2-for-4 with a home run and two RBI. Senior Maija Louko also helped out for the Hokies, going 1-for-3 with a home run and an RBI.

HOW IT HAPPENED

The Hokies got on the board immediately, starting their scoring with one run at the bottom of the first inning. Senior Addy Greene came across to score the lone run of the inning for Virginia Tech and get them on the board.

The Hokies then held the Flames scoreless before getting back on the board the very next inning. Virginia Tech scored twice on back-to-back home runs from Louko and Aldridge, which brought the score to 3-0 in favor of the Hokies.

Virginia Tech’s lead had disappeared by the time the sixth inning came around and turned into a 4-3 Liberty advantage, when the Hokies re-gained control at 6-4. The Hokies scored three times, with a showing that included home runs from both Aldridge and Ritter. Liberty put one run on the scoreboard before the game was over, but Virginia Tech still held on for the 6-5 win.
