After coach Mike Gambino was ejected, the Eagles rallied to erase a Quinnipiac lead and win their third game in a row behind a five-run seventh inning on Wednesday afternoon.
Jake Goodreau was making just his fourth start of the season for the Eagles, but piled up four RBIs in the thorough win over Massachusetts in the Beanpot consolation game.
Brian Rapp took a no-hitter into the seventh inning, Gian Martellini had a three-run double, and BC snapped an eight-game skid in convincing fashion against Pittsburgh on Sunday afternoon.
Opportunities were hard to come by for BC in Tuesday’s midweek loss to Connecticut, managing just two hits and leaving two runners on base as they faltered at home.
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 opened up its brand new Brighton Field with a dramatic, 18-inning marathon that didn’t go its way, falling to nearby Northeastern in a nearly six-hour game, 7-4.
BC had never won a road game against No. 21 Virginia, but did so in the weekend series opener—before dropping the final two games, the product of sloppy defense and bullpen struggles.
The coaching staffs were expecting rain, and a possible delay, but not a suspension of play. In the middle of the fifth inning, Wednesday’s Beanpot final was halted with BC leading Harvard 3-2.
The North Carolina lineup picked apart both Dan Metzdorf and Brian Rapp in Sunday’s doubleheader. Before long, the games were effectively over, and BC was forced to attempt a desperate and unrealistic comeback.
