The UMass Minutemen picked up a comfortable 9-4 victory over Boston College on Monday. Dan Houston started for the Eagles and was roughed up in 5.1 innings while giving up 6 runs (5 earned) He also walked five batters. Jim Cassidy pitched six strong innings while only giving up three runs to up his record to 2-1. Bryan Adamski and Jim McDonald both went 2-4 to lead the Minutemen to the victory. Boston College committed five errors in the game which is unacceptable for a team which is trying to compete for a spot in the ACC Tourney. If Boston College is ever going to have a chance in the ACC they need to step up their defense and start making smart baseball plays.
