GREENSBORO, N.C. – The Boston College baseball team lost to North Carolina A&T at War Memorial Stadium on Monday afternoon. The Eagles dropped to 5-6 on the season, while the Aggies improved to 5-6.
BC led 5-0 in the middle of the third after senior first baseman Jack Cunningham (South Riding, Va.) capped the Eagles’ scoring with a two-run home run. Redshirt-junior lefty Joey Walsh (Plymouth, Mass.) kept A&T off the board in the first two innings, but the game was turned over to the BC bullpen beginning in the bottom of the third.
The Aggies immediately cut the deficit to a run with a four-run third; initially loading the bases and plating all three runners on three wild pitches. Right fielder Camden Williamson made it a one-run game with a home run after the bases cleared.
