A crucial conference series awaits the Eagles, as they play host to Louisville while desperately trying to find momentum and make a late-season surge out of the bottom of the ACC standings.
Dan Metzdorf hurled eight shutout innings for a Saturday win, but bullpen struggles in the other two games handed the Eagles yet another conference series loss, faltering against Notre Dame.
Florida State used four run fifth inning to retake the lead and never looked back, outing BC 12-7 in the seventh rendition of the ALS Awareness Game.
BC’s three-game win streak came to an end on Saturday, as the Eagles struck out 26 times over the course of their series-opening doubleheader, mustering just five hits and zero runs.
BC recorded 22 hits in the two-game set—seven more than the Panthers—but ultimately couldn’t overcome the fact that it continuously shot itself in the foot, logging 15 walks and four errors on the day.
BC, now losers of a season-worst fives straight, was swept for the first time all year, dropping four games below .500 in ACC play against its fourth ranked opponent of the 2018 campaign.
