GREENSBORO, N.C. (theACC.com) – Harry Houdini pitched against Criss Angel in the ACC Baseball Championship on Thursday.

Although both had disappeared by the finish of the Virginia-Clemson game, they worked enough magic to keep their respective teams in it for seven innings. Ultimately, the Cavaliers won it 3-2.

Virginia junior Branden Kline took on the role of Houdini and Clemson freshman Daniel Gossett assumed the identity of Angel. Both extracted themselves from several perilous situations when it seemed they were doomed.

Their lines weren’t pretty. Kline went seven innings, throwing 119 pitches, and allowed just four hits but walked five, made a wild pitch and hit a batter. Gossett threw 124 pitches in 6 2/3 innings and gave up four hits but issued six walks along with a hit batter and a wild pitch.

But the important thing was that each pitcher battled through the difficulties and was charged with just one run. The game was 1-1 when they left.
