Boston College Baseball Falls To Rhode Island, 3-2 In 10 Innings

via bceagles.com

6 up, 30 down.

Sports returned to campus on Tuesday as the Boston College baseball team hosted the Rhode Island Rams as scheduled in a 3 PM start. The two teams observed a moment of silence to honor the victims, injured and first responders of the Marathon tragedy.

The Eagles put up two in the bottom of the first inning on a John Hennessy GIDP RBI, plating sophomore Blake Butera. That's all the scoring the two sides would do, however, as the game was knotted at 2-2 through nine innings.

In the top of the 10th, the Rams put runners on the corners with one out. A John Gorman passed ball plated the winning run for URI. The BC bats went down in order in the bottom of the 10th -- Sauter struck out swinging and was thrown out by the catcher at first, Hernandez grounded up to second and Cronin struck out looking -- as the Eagles took the loss.

Boston College got a strong pitching performance from sophomore righty Eric Stone who lasted four innings and allowed two runs on seven hits, a walk and a strikeout. Nick Poore, Jesse Adams, Jeff Burke, John Nicklas and Nate Bayuk threw for a combined five innings of shutout baseball. Still, it wasn't enough for the W as Birdball falls to 6-30 on the year.

The Rams outhit the Eagles, 12-4, and BC stranded five while URI stranded 11. BC committed two errors on the day.

Here's Gambino following the loss, the Eagles' eight in their last 10.

Boston College next travels to Winston-Salem to take on Wake Forest Demon Deacons for a conference matchup beginning on Friday at 6 p.m. The Deacons are 20-20-0 overall but just 4-14 in conference play. If the Eagles are going to breakthrough in conference play, this coming weekend would be as good a time as any to do so.
