The Boston College baseball team defeated Northeastern 12-6 on Tuesday afternoon, notching their 20th win of the year and taking third in this year's Beanpot Championship. The W was Birdball's fourth in a row, fifth in six tries and six out of nine.
Marc Perdios lead the way for the Eagles at the dish, tallying a career-high five RBIs with a grand slam and an RBI single. He also recorded a third hit, two runs and one walk. Rob Moir was also 3-for-4 with two RBIs, all doubles.
Sophomore LHP Steve Green earned his first win of the year (1-4), throwing five full and allowing five hits, three runs (two earned), one walk and four strikeouts. Matt Brazis, Jay Jeannotte, Nick Poore and Tyler Hinchliffe provided the relief for the Eagles, each pitching an inning and allowing three runs on four hits, striking out three.
The game was moved from BC's Eddie Pellagrini Diamond crosstown to NU's Friedman Diamond due to the inclement weather. The Huskies play on turf. Despite the unfamiliar digs, the Eagles were treated as the home team. Remind me again which ball club is the ACC program and which one is the CAA club again?
The victory gave the Eagles third place in this year's Baseball Beanpot. UMass edged Harvard 8-7 in the Championship game. The Eagles have never lost the Consolation game in the Baseball Beanpot and improve to a Beanpot best 30-13-1 all-time in the event.
BC has won the Beanpot 10 times while finishing second five times and third six. UMass (16-15 all-time) is now tied with Northeastern (22-22) for the second-most Baseball Beanpot Championships with five. Harvard (15-27-1) has won two and Boston University (2-9) none.
The Eagles travel to Chapel Hill to play a critical three-game series with No. 10 North Carolina, beginning Friday at 6 p.m. Both Friday and Sunday's noontime game will be available on ESPN 3.
