via Boston College Baseball on Facebook

Birdball drops to 1-5 on the year.

The Boston College baseball team fell to Illinois 5-2 on the final day of the 10th Annual Keith LeClair Classic on Sunday morning, capping a disastrous early season tournament for Birdball.

The Eagles just cannot get the offense going, leaving nine runners on base while recording eight hits. Through six games this season, the Eagles (1-5) are averaging just 2.5 runs and 6.8 hits a game. Nearly half of the season total for runs came in the 7-6 win over Elon last weekend.

Redshirt freshman Andrew Chin (1-1) made his first career start, going 4.2 innings and allowing four hits, three runs -- all earned -- three walks and striking out six. Sophomore Blake Butera lead BC at the plate, finishing 2-for-3 on the day with a run and a walk. Junior Tom Bourdon was 2-for-5.

Here's head coach Mike Gambino after the loss, talking about the BC bats, Chin's start and playing fundamental baseball.

The Eagles return on action next weekend for a three-game series against Georgia State in St. Petersburg, Florida. Georgia State is 4-4 on the year with victories over Butler (x2), Alabama A&M and Grambling State. The Panthers fell to fellow ACC ballclub Georgia Tech 16-5 back on February 19 in Atlanta.
