Two years removed from a Super Regionals appearance, the Eagles limped to a 17-win campaign, plagued by an inconsistent rotation, a lack of timely hitting, and struggles with the bullpen and close games.
Coming into its series against Notre Dame, BC had recorded just 11 home runs. Every other team in the ACC had hit at least 25. But on Saturday, the Eagles blasted four, en route to their fifth-straight victory.
Hunter Tackett went deep again, one of four Miami home runs on Saturday, as the Eagles wasted a good outing from Dan Metzdorf in a 14-5 loss.
BC’s lineup exploded for 16 hits against the Wolfpack, pulling out an 8-3 win with Pete Frates and his family in attendance.
