Hunter Tackett went deep again, one of four Miami home runs on Saturday, as the Eagles wasted a good outing from Dan Metzdorf in a 14-5 loss.
Boston College baseball fans eyed another chance at Miami and Edgar Michelangeli. Instead, the Eagles made a new enemy in Jeb Bargfeldt.
The title game was cut short due to rain, but a week later BC has announced that baseball has officially defended its Beanpot title with a win against Harvard.
Dan Metzdorf tossed a career-high eight innings and Gian Martellini notched the game-winning RBI in the Eagles’ 2-1 win against the Wolfpack.
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.
Jacob Stevens, Donovan Casey, and Gian Martellini all had huge weekends at Duke, leading Birdball to a pair of victories.
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.
It couldn’t have started any better for BC. With a full count, Donovan Casey homered over the left-field fence, setting the tone for the Eagles’ 5-1 victory over Northeastern in the Beanpot semifinal.
For most of the weekend, Virginia Tech exposed BC’s pitching staff, recording an assortment of extra-base hits. And even when the offense was limited, like on Sunday, it found a way to pull through at the right time.
Birdball withstood a comeback scare, hanging on to defeat Northeastern 10-7.
