More accurately, Boston College baseball has stumbled into every ACC series this season, and it’s not getting any better.
The Eagles are 6-26 (0-14) on the season, having lost each ACC game in which they’ve played. For some perspective, BC is eight losses away from setting a program record for losses — and there are twenty games left to go. It’s not out of reason that the Eagles can surge beyond the indignities of those bad seasons past and lose 40 games this time around, which would rank them somewhere in the sub-basement stratum of worst-ever ACC teams.
In order to get on track to avoiding such a depressing fate, Boston College baseball has to find a way against the North Carolina State Wolfpack, a team that has looked quite good for the most part this season. The Pack are #19 in the nation, having put together a 25-10 (8-7) record. One would think that at their current pace, NC State will find their way into the NCAA Tournament late this spring.
It has been hard enough for the Eagles to beat any team, let alone one of the better ones in the ACC. For a look at the ugly statistical disparity between these two clubs, feast your eyes on this, and then wash them out with soap:
If we’re being honest with ourselves, for Boston College to win one game of the three would constitute a big upset.
Friday’s game at Shea Field begins at 2:30pm, Saturday’s contest starts at 1:30, and Sunday’s series finale will begin at noon.
