Nate LaPointe moved into the catcher’s spot and lefty Steve Green took the mound for BC in the seventh. Green allowed one run and two hits in the seventh, singles to Cammans and new DH Ty Muller.
BC’s base runners finally got to stretch in the seventh inning. McGovern reached on a fielder’s choice before Butera homered to center field, scoring BC’s last two runs and ending O’Sullivan’s day. Ty Sterner took over and walked Bourdon on four pitches, but he got Moir to ground out to end the inning.
Caputo and Roy singled one after the other in the eighth, but Caputo was out at third when Famiglietti took first on a fielder’s choice. Cammans doubled him and Roy in for the Rams’ last two runs of the game.
Jay Jeannotte closed the game for the Eagles, navigating past two pinch-hitters to hand URI its only scoreless inning.
“Overall, today I think, as a ball club, from the coaching staff right to the players, we didn’t do a good job today,” Gambino said after the game. “I don’t think we came out to play baseball today. I can handle wins and losses. I can’t handle that.”
And yet, Gambino says he is not concerned about the Eagles’ upcoming series against North Carolina State. The series takes place on a weekend, so what worries Gambino more is next Tuesday’s game against St. John’s.
“You’ve got to be able to go and do your job every day no matter the circumstances, no matter what’s going on around you, and we’ve got to get better at that,” Gambino said.
