BC has seen plenty of success at the plate thus far, but without a strong bullpen presence, is it enough for the Eagles to climb out from below .500 and make a run into the postseason?
BC won its first conference series of the season on one swing of the bat from freshman Dante Baldelli, but couldn’t find its offense in Game Two.
Jack Cunningham drove in four runs in the first of the Eagles’ three-game series against Virginia Tech, and BC held on for its inaugural victory at Brighton Field.
BC squandered an impressive pitching performance then struggled in its second game, but the lineup rallied behind Brian Rapp to salvage a win in its first ACC series against North Carolina State.
The Eagles had every player in the starting lineup record a hit and a trio of pitchers combined to hurl the team’s first shutout of the year, blanking UNC Asheville, 8-0, on Tuesday afternoon.
BC’s starters were dominant on the hill, but, as a whole, the Eagles were self destructive, committing errors in key moments and not getting the clutch hitting they needed to win against both Bryant and Army.
The Eagles trailed by two runs entering the ninth against Rutgers, but rallied for seven runs to avoid leaving the Snowbird Classic in Port Charlotte without a win.
Jacob Stevens and Brian Rapp both turned in strong starts, bookending a Saturday loss with wins in baseball’s season-opening series against Santa Clara.
