In the seventh, Tanner Schobel reached on an error with two outs, and Jack Hurley hit a two-run bomb.

That’s as close as Virginia Tech got, though. Trevin Michael came on in relief of winning pitcher Jake Bennett (7 IP, 1 ER, 8 K) and struck out the first four batters he faced. After Nick Biddison flied out to center, Sooners right fielder John Spikerman made the play of the day with a diving catch to end the game.

Game 2 of the best-of-three series is set for noon ET Saturday in Blacksburg, Virginia.

No. 8 East Carolina 13, No. 9 Texas 7

East Carolina and Texas combined for seven home runs and 28 hits in the Pirates’ victory.

Murphy Stehly hit two home runs for the Longhorns, and Douglas Hodo III and Ivan Melendez added a homer apiece as well.

ECU led 7-2 after five before Texas mounted a comeback and cut the Pirates’ lead to 8-7 in the top of the eighth. Makarewicz ended the threat with a diving stop at third.

After flashing the leather, Makarewicz led off with a solo home run, and then Jenkins-Cowart hit a two-run double.

Game 2 is set for noon ET Saturday in Greenville, North Carolina.
