Johnny Adams was named the Most Outstanding Player of the Oxford Regional following Boston College's 6-3 victory over the Tulane Green Wave on Sunday. The win launched the Eagles into the Super Regionals round for the first time ever as it clinched their first bracket championship since 1967.
Adams was electric during the regional, going 7-for-12 with four doubles, three runs scored, and three RBI in three games. Against Tulane in the regional-clinching victory, Adams put together a game that will live in Boston College athletics infamy, going 4-for-4 with three RBI and two runs scored.
In addition, Adams had six assists in the field behind BC pitching, including starting a double play that killed a bases loaded rally for the Green Wave in the final game of the bracket.
Along with Adams, three other Eagles placed on the All-Regional Team. Sophomores Jake Palomaki and Donovan Casey and junior Justin Dunn all were honored for their efforts in helping the Eagles to the next round of the postseason.
For Casey, it's doubly sweet as he returned to the batting order for the first time since April, when he broke his hand against the Virginia Cavaliers. Both Palomaki and Dunn dominated in the tournament-opening game against Tulane, with Palomaki registering three earned runs. Dunn, the staff ace, struck out a career-high 11 over seven innings to pace the Eagles in that first victory.
The Eagles now head into their week to prepare for a best-of-three series with the Miami Hurricanes to be played in Coral Gables on Friday-through-Sunday.
