Boston College Baseball Splits Weekend Series With Fordham, ACC Baseball Championship Picture

Game 1: Fordham 7, Boston College 4
Game 2: Boston College 15, Fordham 3

Boston College baseball took a weekend off from conference play to face Fordham. The Eagles fell on Saturday 7-4 before rebounding to take the second game of the series 15-3. The Eagles bats came alive on Sunday, tying a season-high with 19 hits and 14 RBIs. Senior LHP Nate Bayuk (3-2) tallied the win, pitching two scoreless innings, allowing just two hits.

The Eagles improved to 21-30 overall. BC is sitting at 9-18 in conference play with one weekend to go. Here's how the ACC Tournament picture shapes up.

1. Florida State (21-4) -- Atlantic Division leader
2. North Carolina (18-9) -- Coastal Division leader
3. N.C. State (18-9)
4. Virginia (16-11)
4. Clemson (15-10)
6. Miami (14-13)
7. Georgia Tech (11-16)
8. Virginia Tech (11-16)

Wake Forest (10-17)
Boston College (9-18)
Maryland (9-18)
Duke (7-20)

Pool A: #1 Florida State, #4 Virginia, #5 Clemson, #8 Virginia Tech
Pool B: #2 North Carolina, #3 N.C. State, #6 Miami, #7 Georgia Tech

Clemson and Florida State play a doubleheader on Monday, but those games don't have any bearing on the ACC Baseball Championship picture for BC. The Eagles are currently in 10th place with a three-game series remaining vs. Duke. Georgia Tech (11-16) hosts Miami, while Virginia Tech is at North Carolina. Wake Forest is at home against Clemson for three and Maryland hosts Virginia.

BC needs to jump Wake Forest and catch either Tech for the eight and final spot in the ACC Baseball Championship. Anything less than a sweep of Duke and some help probably isn't going to get it done this year. The good news is that while the teams directly above the Eagles play some tough competition this weekend in the regular season finale, BC hosts last place Duke (7-20).

BC holds the head-to-head tiebreaker over Georgia Tech (2-1), Maryland (2-1) and Wake Forest (3-0) but not Virginia Tech (0-3).
