Boston College Baseball: Summer Roundup, Week 2

New, comment

Updating you on the state of the Eagles baseball program under the June sunshine and heat.

BC Athletics

Let's not even wait and dive right in, shall we?

Chris Shaw, San Francisco Giants Organization (Professional)

After flying out to the west coast to start his professional contract, Shaw got a tour this week of AT&T Park in his first official visit as a member of the professional organization. Now that he's signed, the former Eagle outfielder is gearing up to play first base for Salem-Keizer of the short season single-A Northwest League. That means he's bypassing rookie ball and immediately starting out his pro career. Now a full-time first baseman, he'll play as part of an eight-team western league.

Jesse Adams, Chatham Anglers (Cape Cod Baseball League)

Adams threw six innings but recorded a no-decision in a sterling performance last week against Cotuit. Pitching at Veterans Park, a field notorious for its early-summer fog, he struck out three and scattered four hits while walking two. It's his only performance of the season to date since Chatham's going with a multi-man rotation to start the summer.

Kevin Connor, Nashua Silver Knights (Futures Collegiate Baseball League)

Connor's been a mainstay out of the bullpen for Nashua, appearing in six games through the first three weeks of the season. He pitched in one game this week, an 11-8 loss to Brockton, in which we allowed one run on one hit while striking out three and walking one in an inning and a third of work. That came after he worked an inning in a 3-1 victory, in which he struck out three and walked one. On the season, he's thrown 5.2 innings with a save and has not allowed a run.

Carmen Giampetruzzi, Keene Swamp Bats (New England Collegiate Baseball League)

Giampetruzzi pitched a ton this week, including five innings of work on consecutive days. He threw 2.2 innings against Laconia, allowing two hits and recording a hold as Keene picked up a 7-6 victory, but he got racked around a little bit in an 11-10 loss to Valley the next day. Despite throwing 2.1 innings, he gave up five hits and four runs, although only one was earned. In seven appearances, he's thrown 10 innings with a 1.80 ERA this season.

Thomas Lane, North Shore Navigators (Futures Collegiate Baseball League)

Lane's a name we've been following for a couple of years, having committed to BC well before his senior season in high school. The incoming freshman pitched on back-to-back days for North Shore this week, recording a no-decision with an inning thrown in a 5-1 win over the Silver Knights. But he took the loss the next day against Martha's Vineyard, allowing four runs, two of which were earned, on two hits. It was the first earned runs he allowed this summer as he fell to 0-1 with a 2.25 mark.

In eight innings, he's struck out nine and walked four while picking up one save. He's allowed only three hits on the entire season to date.

Brian Rapp, Martha's Vineyard Sharks (Futures Collegiate Baseball League)

Rapp pitched three innings of relief ball against Brockton last week in a 7-3 loss, giving up three runs, none of which were earned (does anyone play defense?! SERIOUSLY). He walked three and struck out two, facing 14 batters in the process. That came on the heels of taking a loss against Pittsfield in which he gave up two runs, one earned, in two-thirds of an inning. He rebounded nicely this week after taking a few days off when the Sharks defeated the Torrington Titans, 4-2. In that game, he threw two-thirds of an inning, facing three batters, striking out one and walking one. On the season, he's 1-1 and despite the runs allowed, only carries a 0.81 ERA in seven games.
