BC finished off its weekend sweep of Charleston Southern Sunday with an 12-1 blowout. The Eagles enjoyed large margins of victory in each of their three games, combining for a total weekend score of 34-7.
After beating Clemson and Louisville on back-to-back days, the 12th-seeded Eagles will attempt to continue their magical run when they face fifth-seeded and No. 23 North Carolina.
Notre Dame piled up 11 runs on 15 hits, rolling past BC in the regular season finale in an emphatic manner to salvage a win in the three-game weekend series.
Jake Alu, Chris Galland, and Joe Suozzi each accounted for three hits as they led the Eagles past the Black Bears in an offensive outburst.
After falling behind by a run heading into the bottom of the eighth, the Eagles responded with two of their own and Thomas Lane closed out a win to rebound from their first sweep of the year.
Led by freshman Cody Morissette, who tallied three RBIs, BC topped the Huskies to take home the Beanpot consolation game.
Led by Brian Dempsey’s four hits and Jake Alu’s three RBIs, the Eagles notched their second victory of the week and evened their record at .500.
Brian Dempsey has played three positions in three years, moved from ninth to third in the batting lineup, and proved that it doesn’t matter if you have one college offer: you can become the heart of a baseball team.
BC erased a three-run deficit, but Jack Cunningham was caught in a rundown in the ninth inning, resulting in a narrow loss to the Wolfpack.
