The Eagles fall to 3-17, 0-8 ACC on the year.

Boston College baseball couldn't escape the bad weather this weekend, even after moving its series with the top-ranked North Carolina Tar Heels from Chestnut Hill to Chapel Hill. While Sunday's game was cancelled, the Eagles and Tar Heels were able to get in a doubleheader on Saturday with BC losing both games by scores of 11-0 and 5-2.

Game 1: North Carolina 11, Boston College 0


Final - 3.23.2013 (Game 1) 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 - R H E
North Carolina Tar Heels 0 0 0 0 3 5 0 3 0 - 11 19 1
Boston College Eagles 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 - 0 3 3

In the first game, junior right-hander Eric Stevens (0-5) went 5.1 innings, allowed a career-high 12 hits and tied a career-high with eight runs, six of which were earned. He did not walk a batter and struck out two. Freshman Chris Shaw went 2-for-3 in the game.

UNC's left-handed starter Kent Emanuel (4-1) pitched eight scoreless innings, allowing just three hits and no walks. He struck out seven.

North Carolina tallied 19 hits in the first game, the most the Eagles' pitching staff has allowed this season.

Thoughts: Aren't going to win many games when you only muster three hits. Or give up 19.

Game 2: North Carolina 5, Boston College 2


Final - 3.23.2013 (Game 2) 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 - R H E
North Carolina Tar Heels 1 0 0 2 1 0 1 0 0 - 5 8 1
Boston College Eagles 1 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 0 - 2 5 1

In the second game, five different Eagles tallied a hit while Butera and Shaw earned RBIs. Redshirt freshman LHP Andrew Chin (1-5) shouldered the loss, pitching four innings, allowing five hits, three runs - all earned - three walks and striking out one.

UNC RHP Benton Moss (6-0) went seven innings, allowed five hits, two runs - one earned - two walks and struck out six. Right-hander Chris McCue earned his first save, pitching the final two innings without allowing a run or hit, walking one and striking out two.

Thoughts: With a lot of these games, BC played tough before the opponent was the first to solve the Eagles' starting pitcher. A club could cover up a lot of the pitching deficiencies with a decent offense, but BC ranks near the bottom of Division I-A in batting average, averaging just a bit above the Mendoza line as a team this season.

Boston College (3-17, 0-8 ACC) is back this week for a midweek game at Northeastern on Tuesday, March 26 at 3 p.m. at Friedman Diamond.
