ABOUT THE EAGLES

Boston College is 35-17 overall, 17-14 against ACC foes and earned the six seed in this week’s ACC Championship; the highest ever in program history. The Eagles entered the final weekend of play tied for seventh with Notre Dame and overcame a game-one defeat to the Irish last week to claim the series and secure six place and a spot in Pool C. BC faces Clemson for a spot in Saturday’s semifinal. Junior first baseman Joe Vetrano leads the club with a .312 batting average, .638 slugging percentage and 1.040 OPS. Senior center fielder Barry Walsh is second on the team in hitting at .309 with a team-high 13 stolen bases to go with six home runs. Graduate right-hander and All-ACC Second team pick Chris Flynn gets the ball against the Tigers. He is 7-2 with a 3.82 earned run average in 70.2 innings pitched. Flynn has 80 strikeouts, which 10th most in a single season in Boston College history. The BC pitching staff has combined to strikeout a program-record 467 batters; breaking the previous mark of 465, which was set in 2005, during Tuesday’s win over Virginia Tech.
