Boston College Baseball Swept By Wake Forest

Needing to string together a few wins to improve their ACC Baseball Championship position, the Eagles fell flat in Winston-Salem, getting swept by the Demon Deacons 2-1 (10 innings)15-5 and 4-3. BC falls to 16-29 overall and just 7-19 in ACC play.

Here's a look at the updated ACC standings:

1. Virginia 20-4
2. Florida State 16-8
3. Georgia Tech 18-6
4. Miami 16-7
5. North Carolina 16-8
6. Clemson 13-11
7. N.C. State 11-13 
8. Wake Forest 10-14
-------------------
9. Virginia Tech 9-15 (1 GB of Wake)
10. Boston College 7-19 (4 GB)

Basically, the Eagles' hopes to make this year's ACC Baseball Championship are looking very bleak. BC needs to sweep N.C. State this weekend, have the Deacons lose all six of their remaining ACC games and have the Hokies lose five of last six. Chances of that happening, as Soaring to Glory explains, are very, very slim:

"Without going into a math lecture, the chances of an outcome being repeated three times AND an outcome being repeated six times AND an outcome being repeated five of six times puts us in less-than-1% territory. To put it in more comprehensible terms, you have significantly better odds of walking into 7-Eleven in Cleveland Circle (about half-way between Cityside and Roggie's, of course) and winning money on a scratch-off lottery ticket than BC does of making the ACC Tournament this year. I think, therefore, it's pretty safe to say that the season has all but come to an end for Eagles baseball."

That good, huh?

BC takes a break from ACC play this week as they face LeMoyne on Saturday and Sunday, and St. John's on Tuesday. ACC play wraps up with a three-game series at home against State. The Eagles can be eliminated from the ACC Baseball Championship this weekend with one Wake win over Duke and/or two Hokies wins over Clemson.
