I think I have probably started multiple game recaps with “I don’t know what to say anymore” or some variation of that and it is completely true: I don’t. This Boston College team has no hitting, no pitching, and no hope. But considering I am currently on summer vacation, I’m going to have a little bit of fun with all of you loyal Soaring to Glory readers and do a bit of a funky, creative recap to ease the pain of the Eagles faithful.
Even the beginning of this game was representative of the Eagles’ season. Their starter Andrew Chin only stayed for one inning in a “bullpen day”. Whatever that is supposed to mean, I don’t know but its execution is a basic concession of defeat. Putting in seven different pitchers is not a very ACC like thing to do. Who knows maybe, its just because Maine isn’t in one of the major conferences. Then again the America East Maine Black Bears are a BETTER team than the ACC Boston College Eagles!! With a now 32 and 19 the Maine Black Bears defeated the 11 and 38 Eagles in Chestnut Hill.
I don’t want to get into the nitty gritty of the game but rather I wish to use visual aids to describe it to you.
