HANOVER, N.H. – The No. 11 Boston College baseball team went on the road to Dartmouth and came away with a 14-10 win at Red Rolfe Field. The Eagles improved to 23-9 on the season.
Sophomore third baseman Nick Wang (Newton, Mass.), who hit a walk-off home run on Tuesday to win the Beanpot over Harvard, powered the BC lineup with a five-hit, five-RBI game. Wang homered and hit three doubles.
The Big Green (1-24) led early with a pair of runs coming in the first inning, but the Eagles responded with a five-run second. After plating a pair of runs to tie the game, junior designated hitter Travis Honeyman (Massapequa, N.Y.) put BC ahead with a three-run, inside-the-park home run that took a large carom off the center field fence.
Senior center fielder Barry Walsh (Sterling, Mass.) added to the Eagles’ offensive output with two doubles in a 3-for-5 effort with two runs and two RBI. Junior left fielder Cameron Leary (Bethpage, N.Y.) did not reach with a hit but did draw four walks and scored three runs.
Third baseman Milo Suarez led Dartmouth with a 3-for-5 game as he homered and drove in three runs.
