Behind three talented freshman and All-ACC First Team pitcher, BC heated up late, won two games at the ACC Tournament for the first time since 2009, and set the stage for an exciting 2020 season.
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.
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.
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.
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 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 trailed by two runs entering the ninth against Rutgers, but rallied for seven runs to avoid leaving the Snowbird Classic in Port Charlotte without a win.
