After Clemson erased a deficit with a three-run eighth, BC struck for two runs in the top of the 11th and knocked off the eighth-seeded Tigers in their ACC Tournament opener.
Dan Metzdorf earned an All-ACC First Team nod and four of his teammates made their way onto teams as well in a record-breaking number of honorees, the conference announced on Monday afternoon.
Notre Dame piled up 11 runs on 15 hits, rolling past BC in the regular season finale in an emphatic manner to salvage a win in the three-game weekend series.
Dan Metzdorf pitched into the eighth for his sixth quality start in a row and BC used a 10-run outburst from its lineup to roll past the Irish and clinch an ACC Tournament spot.
Jake Alu, Chris Galland, and Joe Suozzi each accounted for three hits as they led the Eagles past the Black Bears in an offensive outburst.
After falling behind by a run heading into the bottom of the eighth, the Eagles responded with two of their own and Thomas Lane closed out a win to rebound from their first sweep of the year.
Boston College was Chris Galland’s only collegiate baseball offer. Now, he’s off to the races, building off an All-ACC Third Team campaign with a chip on his shoulder.
Brian Dempsey has played three positions in three years, moved from ninth to third in the batting lineup, and proved that it doesn’t matter if you have one college offer: you can become the heart of a baseball team.
Joey Walsh made his first start and went four scoreless innings, then Travis and Thomas Lane shut the door in the final four frames of a 4-0 shutout of the visiting Rams on Tuesday afternoon.
Through seven starts, BC freshman righthander Mason Pelio is 4-1 with a 1.64 ERA and has impressed against ACC’s elite, quickly establishing himself as the Eagles’ top pitcher and one of the best in the conference.
