About the Eagles…
The Eagles are 5-9 and have lost four in a row, including a pair of one-run games at No. 23 Clemson over the weekend. BC is third in the ACC with a .315 batting average, including three players in the top-seven in the league with a .400 average or better. Sophomore third baseman Cody Morissette is hitting a team-high .455, which ranks second in the ACC, with six doubles, 12 runs and 10 RBI. Senior left fielder Joe Suozzi is hitting .426 and slugging .630 with a team-high 14 RBI and 13 runs. Senior first baseman Jack Cunningham is hitting .400 with two home runs and 10 RBI. Redshirt-junior left-handed pitcher Joey Walsh has made a team-high seven appearances, including two starts, and owns a team-best 3.26 earned run average, while holding opponents to a .246 average in 19.1 innings of work.
Scouting the Crusaders…
Holy Cross is 5-9 after a 4-4, eight-game road trip through California against CSU Bakersfield and UC Riverside. The Crusaders are hitting just .248 collectively, but feature a lineup with four players over .300. Center fielder Austin Masel leads with a .327 average to go with 12 runs and 11 RBI. Second baseman Ben Dellacono is hitting .321 with eight doubles and 10 RBI. First baseman Andrew Selima, who is hitting just .250, has hit three home runs and driven in 12 runs.
All-Time vs. Holy Cross…
The all-time series, which on record dates back to 1966, is led by BC 35-34-1. Boston College trails in games played at home, 23-28-1, but owns the longest win streak in the rivalry at 12 games between 1993 and 2005.
Last Time They Met…
Boston College trailed right out of the gate, but the Eagles responded immediately with three runs in the bottom of the first and never looked back en route to an 11-4 win at home. Jake Alu and Jack Cunningham each went 3-for-4 with three RBI and a home run.
Boston College is back on the road to face No. 11 NC State. The series begins Friday at 6:30 p.m. All three games will be streamed on ACCNX.
