BRIGHTON, Mass. – The Boston College baseball team came from behind to defeat Sacred Heart, 5-2, at the Harrington Athletics Village on Wednesday evening. The Eagles (9-11) trailed 2-1 in the sixth before scoring in each of their final three turns at bat and taking the lead with two runs in the bottom half.
Freshman right-hander Luke Delongchamp (Holden, Mass.) pitched 5.2 innings in the start but did not factor into the decision. He gave up two runs on three hits and two walks with two strikeouts. Delongchamp exited with BC down 2-1 before the Eagles rallied their next turn up.
BC got two aboard virtue of back-to-back walks and sacrificed both into scoring position to start the bottom of the sixth. Junior center fielder Barry Walsh (Sterling, Mass.) singled in the game-tying run and the Eagles took the lead a batter later with a balk.
Sophomore lefty Charlie Coon (Duxbury, Mass.) got the win in 1.2-scoreless innings. Coon (1-0) struck out one and allowed two hits and one walk. RHP David Aufiero (0-2) took the loss for the Pioneers (1-18) with two runs charged to his line in 0.2 innings of work.
SHU grabbed the first lead of the game on a solo home run to left by first baseman Steve Schoen.
