Eagles Trounce Harvard in Season Opener

Game 1: vs. Harvard: 15-0 W

Game 2: vs. Harvard: 7-0 W

Your BC Eagles opened up the season in style with two big wins over the Harvard Crimson Club Baseball Team on Sunday at St. John’s Prep. Cam “chill” Miller got the ball in game 1, going three strong innings. Despite limited hacks due to the predawn practices at Lake Street, the Eagles bats were on fire in game 1, putting up 15 runs on the Crimson pitching. Daniel Lu was a monster at the plate, going 4 for 4 with 2 doubles, 2 RBIs, 2 runs, and 2 stolen bases.

Game 2 saw Kevin Haley dominate in his first start as an Eagle, going three strong innings while striking out six. Woody Hubbell and Brett Layman each had a double, while Trevor Foehr had a pair of RBIs leading the offense to another strong 7 run effort.

The Eagles will take on the UCONN Huskies next weekend in their first conference matchup. Come out to support your BC Eagles at St. John’s Prep in Danvers, MA. Go Eags!

Eagles Spring Play Begins

While you were busy “chillin” over the weekend, the Eagles kept themselves busy with a big schedule of events! The Eags went a solid 3-1 over the extended weekend.

The extravaganza began with a Saturday/ Sunday series with the UCONN Huskies. The Eagles took Game 1 Saturday with a big 12-3 win, riding the arm of Tom Clarkson and racking up 15 hits. The Sunday DH was split, with scores of 4-5 and 5-4 against a tough UCONN squad.

Lastly, the Eagles couldn’t get enough baseball for the weekend, so we took on Northeastern University last night in Jamaica Plain for a little weeknight suare. The Eagles took the game 11-4, backed by solid pitching by 5 different pitchers, and a 3 run HR in the second inning by our own Dustin Pedroia (Matt Beauchesne).

The Eagles move to 8-1 in the conference and 11-2 on the year going into a series this weekend out at UMASS. We hope to see some of our fans there for the 9 inning Saturday event and Sunday Doubleheader. Go Eagles!

Relay For Life

Calling all Eagles Fans! The Boston College Club Baseball Team will once again be participating in the Relay For Life through Boston College coming next month to the Flynn Recreation Complex. For those who do not know, the Relay For Life is a national set of events put on by the American Cancer Society to raise money for cancer research. The Eagles as a team have set our goal at raising $1,000, and would love any and all support you could give. Sadly, many of us have felt the impacts of cancer in our lives, so we hope you will give generously to such a worthy cause. The link is posted below.  Thanks so much, and go Eagles!

Eagles Sweep Albany

Boston College Club Baseball had one exceptional weekend, sweeping SUNY Albany in a three game series, with scores of 6-0, 15-5, and 6-0.

In the first game, Nick Assad pitched a shutout, allowing no runs on two hits while striking out four through seven full innings. The bats began a weekend to remember, beating SUNY Albany thanks to nine hits, including three extra base hits, including a leadoff home run by Daniel Lu in the bottom of the first.

In game 2, Albany struck first, tacking on 2 runs in the top of the first to take a 2-0 lead. However, the steady hand of the Eagles never had a doubt, as Alex Gulati and Daniel Lu both homered to headline a steady stream of scoring. 5 of the Eagles had multi-hit games, and the combination of Andrew Dawson, Kristian Singh, and Shane Kelly held the door closed on the Albany offense.

In today’s nine-inning game, Tom Clarkson dominated the game, striking out six and only giving up one hit in seven full innings of work. Alex Gulatiadded another home run to the weekend, and the top 5 of the line-up all had multi-hit games to help the offense roll through the weekend.

The Eagles will look to keep it rolling next weekend versus Sacred Heart on Sunday, 10/23. The games will be at World Series Park in Saugus, MA.
