BGN Video: Ohio State Postgame

No bullpen? No problem. West Virginia avoided its problem area, getting a complete game from starter Ross Vance and timely, two-out hitting for a 4-1 win over Ohio State on Tuesday. Here, head coach Randy Mazey, Vance and Max Nogay - who had a huge two-run homer - talk about the victory and the mental boost it provides.

Mazey, whose team had lost seven in a row entering, snapped that streak in amongst the most surprising of ways. Here, Mazey notes that snapping the skid made him as warm as he has been all season, despite the 35-degree temperatures, and speaks to the excellent that was Vance in a major psychological win for the Mountaineers.

Vance, who struck out 14 in his first career start, talks about the effectiveness of his change-up, keeping Ohio State's hitters off balance and his comfort as a starter, where he spent the majority of his prep career.

Nogay, who delivered the big blow from the designated hitter slot with his two-run shot, speaks about his plate approach, desire for lengthy at-bats and seeing multiple pitches and the significance of the win heading into a three-game road series at Oklahoma this weekend.
