Boston College baseball continued their trend of mediocrity today by dropping both games of today’s double header against the No.19 ranked NC State Wolfpack team. These two losses add up to the Eagles losing their first 16 games against ACC opponents this year. This also reduces the Eagles record to 6-28 on the 2013 season. The reason the set of games this Saturday was because the game on Saturday needed to be cancelled due to the rain in Chestnut Hill Friday afternoon.
In the first game, the Eagles had a 5-0 lead after finishing the second inning. But the NC State Wolfpack were able to beat up Eagles starting pitcher Hunter Gordon in the fourth peeling off four runs. The final blow was put on the Eagles, with freshman Jeff Burke on the mound, when the Wolfpack got two runs in the bottom of the Sixth.
The Eagles weren’t able to answer back against the combo of Thomas, Easley, and Sasser for the final seven innings after starting pitcher Rodon was taken out after he gave up the five runs.
The second game was even more of a wash for the Eagles. After getting a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the second, when catcher Matt Pare scored on an error, the Wolfpack put on six runs between the next two innings. The Eagles were only able to crack the box score once more in the seventh with a Gabriel Hernandez sacrifice fly. Then NC State closed out the Eagles 6-2.
The Eagles will play next on Sunday at noon in the finale against the NC State Wolfpack. Hopefully they will be able to get their first ACC win.
