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.
Brian Dempsey tied a career high with four hits, and Dante Baldelli scored the go-ahead run in the eighth inning before a lighting storm kicked in, slightly abbreviating BC’s two-run victory over Maine.
Brian Rapp pitched seven innings of one-run baseball, and Brian Dempsey—who logged three hits on the day—singled up the middle to score the game-winning run in the eighth inning, recording BC’s second ACC win in the past four weeks.
