DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — Josh Sborz took a perfect game into the seventh inning and Virginia beat Georgia Tech 11-0 in a play-in game at the Atlantic Coast Conference baseball tournament.

Sborz retired the first 18 hitters he faced on Tuesday before pinch-hitter Ryan Peurifoy doubled to lead off the seventh. Sborz finished with a one-hitter with eight strikeouts and two walks to help the seventh-seeded Cavaliers (34-19) advance into pool play. Virginia will face second-seeded Miami on Wednesday.

Daniel Pinero hit a two-run homer and finished with four RBIs, Pavin Smith added a two-run shot and Kenny Towns had a two-run single for Virginia.

Pinero's blast in the fifth inning gave the Cavaliers an 11-run lead. The tournament has a 10-run mercy rule after seven innings.

The 10th-seeded Yellow Jackets (32-23) won its play-in game last year before going on to win its ninth league tournament.
