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 overcame an early three run deficit from the first inning, but a three-run home run for Harvard’s Patrick Robinson 10 innings later put the game out of reach.
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.
Jake Alu and Jacob Yish are used to playing all over the field—whether it’s manning almost every infield position for Alu, or covering distance in the outfield for Yish—and expect nothing different this year after breakout 2017 campaigns.
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.
BC’s lineup exploded for 16 hits against the Wolfpack, pulling out an 8-3 win with Pete Frates and his family in attendance.
