Pitt Hosts WVU for Baseball Backyard Brawl Matchup

U92 will be broadcasting the Backyard Brawl baseball game from PNC Park on Tuesday, April 30th.

Pitt recently took a game from the sixth ranked team in the country, Clemson, won 8-4 on April 20th, but ultimately lost the series.

In that game, WVU did all of its scoring in the third and fourth innings, Sam White had an RBI double and Reed Chumley had a sacrifice fly. Pitt scored three runs in the eighth inning.
