Pitt right-hander Matt Gilbertson (5-2) surrendered three singles with one out in the bottom of the first as his team trailed early. He limited the damage to a single run with an inning-ending double play. The Eagles got the leadoff man aboard in each of the first three innings, but the Panthers turned a double play in all three frames.
Gilbertson got through seven innings with just three runs against despite 10 hits, and nine singles, but did not issue a walk and struck out four. For Boston College, senior RHP Joe Mancini (Fairfield, Conn.) pitched 5.1 innings. He was tagged for nine runs, all earned, on 10 hits, seven of which were extra-base hits, and one walk with four strikeouts.
Left fielder Ron Washington Jr. powered the Panther lineup with a 3-for-4 night, including a two-run home run and a double. Right fielder CJ Funk homered and finished 2-for-3.
