You must all proceed to find the nearest roulette table and throw $100 down on red 21. The Boston College baseball team earned a 1-0 victory over Miami on Friday afternoon for its first ACC win of the 2013 season. As the saying goes, the 21st time is the charm.

What do you think, Mr. 305?

The Eagles (7-34, 1-20 ACC) scored the only run of the game in the third on a Miami error that plated sophomore Travis Ferrick. Senior righty Hunter Gordon (1-4) notched the win, going 6.1 and allowing just three hits, walking four and striking out two. Freshman lefty Jesse Adams pitched the final 2.2 innings to preserve the shutout, earning his first collegiate save.

Boston College outhit the Hurricanes (28-17, 10-12 ACC), 4-3.

With the win in conference play, BC avoids the dis-honor of becoming the first ACC team to go 0-for in conference play in the expanded schedule era. Even better, the Eagles incredibly slim ACC Baseball Championship hopes are alive after both Virginia Tech (15-6 loss to Virginia) and Duke (1-0 loss to Maryland) both lost on Friday.

Here are the current ACC Baseball standings:

1. North Carolina - 18-2 (Coastal Division leader)
2. Clemson - 15-8 (Atlantic Division leader)
3. Virginia - 17-5
4. Florida State - 14-8
4. N.C. State - 14-8
6. Georgia Tech - 11-12
7. Miami - 10-12
8. Virginia Tech - 9-13
----------
9. Duke - 8-13
10. Wake Forest - 7-15
11. Maryland - 7-15
12. Boston College - 1-20

The Eagles now need the following to happen to qualify for this year's ACC Baseball Championship:

a) win out to finish 9-20
b) Virginia Tech to lose out to finish 9-21
c) Duke to split the two remaining games with Maryland then proceed to lose out to finish 9-21
d) Maryland to split the two remaining games with Duke then proceed to lose out to finish 8-22
e) for two of the games in the Wake Forest-Virginia Tech regular season finale to be rained out with no makeup date and for Wake Forest to finish the year 1-5 with a win over Virginia Tech to finish 8-20

BC goes for the series win -- LOL Miami -- this afternoon at 1:30 p.m. The Eagles will honor U.S. military servicemen and women and members of the Wounded Warrior Project before and during the game.

Go Eagles!
