2011 ACC Baseball Tournament Scores, Schedule: Mother Nature Steals Show, Creates 12-Hour Game And Pauses No-Hitter

Friday was another strange day in the 2011 ACC Tournament. Short recaps, scenarios for both pools, and a completely redone schedule are all below. 

No. 1 Virginia defeated No. 5 Miami 6-4

With Miami leading 2-0 in the second inning, bad weather hit the Durham area and forced a seven hour delay. The game featured an 11 a.m. first pitch and a final out at 10:33 p.m. Virginia center fielder Kenny Swab went 4-for-5, knocking in four runs and scoring one of his own. Virginia improves to 47-9 on the season and is in the driver's seat to reach Sunday's championship game from Pool A. 

No. 4 North Carolina leads No. 8 Wake Forest 5-0 (7th inning)

This tournament just keeps getting more strange with each passing day. At 1:55 a.m. Saturday morning, the game was called due to rain. At the time, North Carolina held a 5-0 lead, and starting pitcher Patrick Johnson was in the middle of a no-hitter. The Tar Heels and Demon Deacons will return to action Saturday afternoon at roughly 4 p.m. after the first two games have been completed. The league had initially announced that the game would be made up if necessary Sunday morning, but roughly half an hour later changed its mind and is going to squeeze four and a half games into an awesome Saturday of baseball.  

Pool A Scenarios: This pool is way more complicated than Pool B. If a three-way tie develops, the first tiebreaker is regular season conference winning percentage, which would go to Virginia. If Virginia wins, nothing else matters and the Cavaliers play on Sunday. After that, it gets very distorted with tiebreakers between all of the teams and depends a lot on the continuation of the UNC-Wake Forest game. 

Pool B Scenarios: All four teams in Pool B have the exact same 1-1 record, and so therefore need to win and have the team that they beat win in the other game to advance to the championship. Pool A, why couldn't you be this simple?

Georgia Tech: The Jackets need to win and have NC State beat Clemson.
Clemson: The Tigers need to win and have Georgia Tech beat FSU.
NC State: The Wolfpack need to win and have FSU beat Georgia Tech.
FSU: The Seminoles need to win and have Clemson beat NC State.
