In the latest edition of our weekly roundup, we check out baseball securing its first ACC series win over Florida State since 2009, lacrosse moving to 12-0 in 2019, and much more.
Bolstered by a combination of senior leadership and freshman talent, the Eagles took two of three games against the Seminoles on the road.
Behind 6 2/3 innings of one-run ball from freshman Mason Pelio, BC fought off a late rally from the Tigers and avoided a series sweep at home on Sunday afternoon in front of a good crowd.
The Eagles lineup struggled mightily against Tigers freshman Davis Sharpe, while Clemson didn’t have similar issues getting to BC senior Dan Metzdorf in a convincing 8-1 victory.
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.
Louisville southpaw Adam Wolf struck out 10, allowed a lone run over eight innings, and was backed up by a pair of home runs as BC dropped the first game of the weekend series on Friday night.
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.
