After a 3-1 week, Boston College softball now stands at 25-18 overall, with an 11-6 record in ACC play, good for fourth in the conference.
Against UMass on Wednesday, Jessica Dreswick threw a complete game shutout, which gave her 55 wins for her career and tied the school record for wins by an individual pitcher. On the offensive side, Chloe Shrabba went 3-4 with a RBI and Annie Murphy went 2-4 with a RBI of her own to lead the Eagles to a 5-0 win.
In the softball version of the Holy War this weekend, the Eagles took two of three from their rivals despite losing the series opener. BC dug itself a hole early when Ally Frei gave up four runs in the opening frame and was unable to get out of the inning. Dreswick came in with two outs in the first, but she too gave up four runs in the game. The offense was paced by Annie Murphy and Emme Martinez, each of whom had a hit and a RBI, but the Eagles were only able to get four runs across in a 8-4 loss. On Saturday, both Lexi DiEmmanuele and Murphy had three hits to help the Eagles beat the Irish at home for the first time since 2000. Frei gave up two runs over six innings of work before Dreswick came in and shut the door in the seventh to preserve a 6-4 BC victory. In the rubber match on Sunday, freshman Emme Martinez had 5 RBI to lead the offense en route to victory. Annie Murphy also had two hits and two RBI to help the Eagles to a 9-6 win.
This week, the Eagles will play midweek games with Harvard and Fairleigh Dickinson before traveling to Louisville for a series with the Cardinals.
