BRIGHTON, Mass. – The Boston College baseball team was shut out by No. 15 Connecticut, 8-0, at the Harrington Athletics Village on Wednesday night. UConn (30-7) starter Ian Cooke (6-0) held the Eagles (15-22) to one hit in eight innings with seven strikeouts.
The lone BC hit of the night belonged to sophomore first baseman Joe Vetrano (Shrub Oak, N.Y.) on an infield single to lead off the second. The hit was initially called out on the field but was overturned after a replay review.
The Huskies grabbed the lead with back-to-back two-out hits, sandwiched around a wild pitch, in the top of the second. UConn then added three runs in the third and chased freshman right-hander Luke Delongchamp (Holden, Mass.) after two-plus innings. Delongchamp (2-1) took the loss with three runs against four hits and a walk with three strikeouts.
