Boston College baseball continued its rapid decline on Tuesday afternoon in a non-conference game against the Northeastern Huskies.
The Eagles fell to the Huskies down the road in Brookline in a 7-0 shutout loss. That is Boston College’s eleventh loss in their last twelve games, dropping them to 7-15 overall on the season.
This marks their second consecutive game being kept off the scoreboard, having lost to Wake Forest, 8-0, last Saturday. Boston College baseball has not scored a run over their last 18 innings of play, scattering just three hits against the Huskies on Tuesday.
Clearly, offensive highlights for Birdball will be at a minimum in a game where they were shut out. Catcher Nick Sciortino got the Eagles’ only extra-base hit, a double. Sadly, he also committed the team’s only error in the field.
Starter Eric Stone left the game with two outs in the third inning, having faced 15 batters to that point. He took the loss, allowing three earned runs with two hits, three walks, and two hit batters. James Mulry picked up his first win of the year for the Huskies, giving up only one hit in seven innings of work.
The Eagles are making it easy on their opponents as of late with their offense going comatose. Unfortunately for them, there does not appear to be any end in sight: first because they are sinking badly as they have in previous years, and second because they will next face the #1 team in the nation, the Florida State Seminoles.
