I'm not sure what has gotten into the Boston College baseball team lately. I like it.
The Eagles notched their third straight victory on Tuesday, dispatching Rhode Island 8-7 to win their third straight game. Boston College, the previous owners of a 20-game losing streak in the Atlantic Coast Conference, has now won four of its last five games.
Junior John Hennessy recorded a career-high four hits in five at bats and tied a career high by scoring three runs. Senior Matt McGovern knocked in two for the second game in a row while sophomore Blake Butera was 2-for-5 with an RBI. Sophomore lefty Nick Poore (1-2) recorded his first win of the year, going just two innings on a pitch count.
During this mini-winning streak BC is on, the team decided to stop shoving a microphone and pointing a camera at Gambino and started getting the kids thoughts on the games. Keep doing that.
The red hot Eagles will host No. 25 Virginia Tech and former head coach Pete Hughes in their final home stand starting Friday at 2:30 p.m. Saturday's 1:30 p.m. contest is the baseball team's Second Annual ALS Awareness Game and Sunday will honor the five seniors on the team.
