The Eagles vaunted duo of Allyson Frei and Jessica Dreswick struggled in the circle, each allowing four runs in a disappointing start to a weekend series against ACC foe Notre Dame.
Florida State’s Kylee Hanson allowed just three hits, retiring 13 of the last 16 batters she faced en route to the 5-0 shutout win of BC on a blustery Sunday afternoon.
Winning her sixth-consecutive start, Jessica Dreswick pitched a two-hit complete game, and the Eagles made the most of a couple of timely two-baggers and Husky errors to stretch their win streak to 12.
Allyson Frei shut down a Minutewomen lineup that entered Tuesday, having averaged 8.8 runs per game in its past 10 contests, and BC did just enough offensively to plate three runs, reaching a new milestone in the process.
Jessica Dreswick and Allyson Frei have pitched all but one inning this season and are on pace to break a handful of program records by the end of their careers—the duo’s dependability and achievements slingshot the upperclassmen ahead of every other Eagles pairing that came before them.
BC worked its way back to .500 during an abbreviated two-game series with Syracuse this weekend, outscoring the Orange, 16-4, en route to its fifth- and sixth-straight victories.
The Eagles extended their scoreless innings streak to 17, blanking rival Boston University behind a shutout from Allyson Frei and a seventh inning home run from Jordan Chimento.
Prior to the weekend, the Eagles were still searching for their first ACC victory of the season. Now, with a sweep of Virginia, they are back to .500 in conference play and only three wins short of evening their overall record.
In the five-game Easton Crimson Classic, the Eagles swept Samford, edged Fordham, and dropped a pair of decisive losses to No. 13 Alabama, finishing above .500 in a classic or tournament for the first time this season.
