Boston College Baseball Swept By No. 10 North Carolina
Melchionda, a senior from Braintree, Mass., hit .421 for the week and drove in seven runs while keying the Eagles to three wins, including their first two ACC victories of the season in a series win over 14th-ranked Georgia Tech. Three of Melchionda’s hits went for extra bases, including a home run in a 2-for-5, three-RBI performance in a 15-7 win over the Yellow Jackets on Friday. Melchionda, who earned his second ACC Player of Week honor this season, went 2-for-3 with a double and an RBI on Saturday, sparking BC to a 4-3 win. The multi-hit games were Melchionda’s second and third of the week.
