Boston College Baseball Swept By No. 10 North Carolina

Game 1: North Carolina 15, Boston College 1 (ouch)
Game 2: North Carolina 6, Boston College 5
Game 3: North Carolina 4, Boston College 1

The Boston College baseball team was swept by No. 10 North Carolina in a critical three game set over the weekend, falling further behind in the race for the eighth and final spot in the 2012 ACC Baseball Championship. The Eagles got crushed on Friday, took a 5-2 lead into a 4+ hour rain delay only to fall 6-5 and fell 4-1 on Sunday.

BC is now just 1-14 on the road in the ACC this year.

Here's how the ACC Tournament picture shapes up.

1. Florida State (21-2) -- Atlantic Division leader
2. North Carolina (16-8) -- Coastal Division leader
3. N.C. State (16-8)
4. Virginia (14-10)
5. Clemson (14-10)
6. Miami (12-12)
7. Georgia Tech (10-14)
8. Virginia Tech (10-14)

Wake Forest (9-15)
Boston College (9-18)
Maryland (8-17)
Duke (7-17)

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

Boston College has just one ACC regular season series remaining -- a three-game set vs. Duke. BC will need a strong showing against Duke and a bunch of help if the Eagles hope to make this year's ACC Baseball Championship. Birdball is now 2.5 games back of Georgia Tech and Virginia Tech for the eighth and final spot in the tournament and four back in the loss column.

Here's how the rest of the ACC regular season plays out:

7. Georgia Tech (10-14) -- at Virginia x3, vs. Miami x3
8. Virginia Tech (10-14) -- vs. N.C. State x3, at North Carolina x3

9. Wake Forest (9-15) -- at Miami x3, Clemson x3
10. Boston College (9-18) -- vs. Duke x3
11. Maryland (8-17) -- at Florida State x1, vs. Virginia x3
12. Duke (7-17) -- vs. North Carolina x3, at Boston College x3

In the event of a two-way tie, Boston College holds the head-to-head tiebreaker over Georgia Tech, Wake Forest and Maryland but not Virginia Tech.

The Eagles have the week off before hosting Fordham in a two-game, non-conference series on Saturday and Sunday, May 12-13.
