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.
After Clemson erased a deficit with a three-run eighth, BC struck for two runs in the top of the 11th and knocked off the eighth-seeded Tigers in their ACC Tournament opener.
Behind a strong day at the plate from the BC lineup, the Eagles knocked off a tough Northeast Conference foe in Bryant for their second win in a row.
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 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.
BC baseball continued its travels to start the season. The Eagles split four games over the weekend, losing twice to Evansville while returning the favor against Eastern Kentucky.
BC finished the weekend with a resounding 14-5 win, but dropped the first two games to the host Wildcats as the result of poor pitching from the back end of the pitching staff.
