This weekend we'll find out whether Boston College baseball is for real or if they're likely to go through the same struggles they have in season's past. The Eagles opens up ACC play against the 14th ranked Hurricanes in a three-game series down in Miami.
Miami dropped its last weekend series with the top-ranked Florida Gators, but is coming off a 4-3 victory over Miami (Ohio) in a matchup of Miami's. Head asplodes.
Here are your probable pitching matchups for the weekend series:
Friday: RHP Eric Stevens (2-0, 3.52) vs. LHP Eric Erickson (2-1, 3.00)
Saturday: RHP Matt Alvarez (1-1, 4.15) vs. RHP Eric Whaley (1-1, 4.41)
Sunday: RHP Hunter Gordon (1-0, 1.80) vs. LHP Bryan Radziewski (1-0, 4.96)
