On Tuesday, the Boston College baseball team announced that they had added an extra game to the 2013 schedule. The Eagles would travel crosstown to take on the Northeastern Huskies at Friedman Diamond in Brookline. They may be some second-guessing of that decision tonight as the Eagles fell to the Huskies 10-1. With the loss, the Eagles (3-12) push their losing streak to five games. Northeastern improved to 9-6 on the year.
The Eagles only managed four hits on the day and fell behind by scores of 1-0, 2-0, 3-0 and 10-0 (!) before breaking up the shutout in the top of the ninth.

Senior righty Hunter Gordon (0-2) got his first start of the year. Gordon went three innings, allowed three hits, and one run, which was unearned. He did not walk any batters and struck out three. During Northeastern's seven run seventh inning, grad student Nate Bayuk gave up three runs while Jeff Burke surrendered four -- all earned.
Sophomore Blake Butera led the Eagles at the dish with a 2-for-4 afternoon, including a double in the ninth inning. BC scored its only run of the game in the top of the ninth on a Tom Bourdon sac fly that plated Gabriel Hernandez.
Here's Coach Gambino on the loss:
Birdball next heads to Atlanta to play a three-game ACC series with ninth-ranked Georgia Tech. The Jackets are 14-2 on the year but are coming off a 6-2 loss to Virginia Tech in the series finale last weekend.
