The NC State Wolfpack jumped all over Boston College starter Nick Asselin as they were able to get a quick seven runs over the first two innings to cruise to a 10-1 victory. Asselin gave up six hits, three walks, and hit a batter while giving up seven earned runs over his two innings of work. He was followed by Nate Jeanes who looked solid in seven innings of work while giving up three runs in the eighth inning as he was tiring.
Andrew Brackman was very unimpressive to myself in seven innings he gave up four hits, three walks, and hit two batters while giving up only one earned run. He hit 97 on the radar gun a few times but was not hitting his corners and his curveball was flat over the first 3 or 4 innings. I still don’t see how the scouts have him going in the first round but I believe that his size is the biggest reason scouts are in love with him.
This was the first game I have attended this year and I have to say that I was unimpressed with the Boston College hitters. Tony Sanchez was the only hitter that looked comfortable at the plate while Jared McGuire has continued to struggle since he moved to left field last season. He won the Big East Player of the Year award as a sophomore and is barely cracking .260. I don’t think I will be at the game on Sunday as I have some better options in the area for baseball including a solid Navy team taking on Holy Cross and some Division 2 action at Bryant. We will see where I show up tomorrow and if I do head to the Heights, I better see some life out of that baseball program or it will be a very long season.
