BC baseball continued its travels to start the season. The Eagles split four games over the weekend, losing twice to Evansville while returning the favor against Eastern Kentucky.
BC finished the weekend with a resounding 14-5 win, but dropped the first two games to the host Wildcats as the result of poor pitching from the back end of the pitching staff.
The Eagles were firing on all cylinders in their first series of the season as newcomers Sal Frelick and Cody Morissette excelled in their debuts.
Louisville used a dominant seven innings from start Nick Bennett to coast to an 11-3 win over the lowly Eagles, who have now lost seven of their last nine games.
Behind a 3-for-4, three extra-base hit day from Jake Palomaki, the Eagles snapped a four-game skid in convincing manner against Dartmouth on Wednesday night.
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.
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.
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.
