Baseball Results and Other Links

The Eagles baseball team started that week off the right way with a great performance at Hartford. BC scored 4 runs in the top of the 9th to grab the 8-4 victory lead by the brilliant performance on the mound from Pat Dean (7.0 innings, 1 ER). The Eagles bats were also great, lead by Mickey Wiswall who had 3 RBIs, Andrew Lawrence who had 2 RBIs and Mike Belfiore who had the game winning double in the ninth to give the Eagles the win.

BC Baseball then struggled at Holy Cross yesterday. Losing 8-2 to the Crusaders in an all around bad game. Mike Belfiore and Micky Wiswall did all they could at the plate, knocking in the Eagles only 2 runs but that wasn't enough. Taylor Lasko struggled in the start pitching on 2.2 innings, giving up 5 hits and 3 runs. Although the Eagles struggled Matt O'Brien was a brightspot out of the pen, pitching 2.0 scoreless innings.

Nick Petricki's tenure is done at BC. He has signed with the San Jose Sharks' AHL team, the Worchester Sharks. Petrecki had a brilliant year as a freshmen at BC, being on the of backbone's to the national championship team but he didn't have a very good sophomore year. Petrecki played undisciplined and was very inconsistant.

The Men's Basketball team is looking to play a familiar foe. Villanova is a great program and would be a great addition to BC's non-conference schedule.
