Boston College for the second consecutive weekend knocked off a Top 10 team but the difference this week was Boston College ended up winning two games. This was a big step forward for the program which has struggled throughout the season with a ton of early season losses. There has been many indications that Terry Doyle will become a dominant Ace for Boston College next season. He knocked off Clemson last weekend with a solid performance and this past weekend had very little command but still pulled out a 5-4 victory on Saturday. Nate Jeanes returned the favor on Sunday with a 5.2 innings of great junk ball pitching and holding the Jackets to a solo home run by Jeff Kindel who could be heard grunting when he hit the ball. Dave Preziosi had a huge 2 out triple to break the game open on Sunday and San Diego native Jett Ruiz had 3 hits and will be an excellent middle of the order next season.

One important thing to say about GA Tech was the loss of Danny Payne and Steven Blackwood. They both are great hitters and could have caused some trouble but both players were not available after they collided in game 1 and Danny Payne had a separated shoulder and Blackwood a bruised thigh.

I will be there on Saturday in Brockton (TV game) and Sunday in Chestnut Hill likely the last ACC home game for the seniors. I can’t wait till next year and see how we do.

BC wins the Beanpot


Boston College dominated the Harvard Crimson 10-2 yesterday at Fenway Park. Boston College Junior CF Pete Frates had a career day going 4 for 4 with a home run into the visitor’s bullpen at the historic ground. He has been struggling this year hitting 212 on the season now.

Boston College has been struggling in their first season in the ACC but has been extremely competitive losing many hard fought games. Dan Houston and Terry Doyle have pitched pretty well for a freshman and a sophomore respectively. Doyle pitched 7.1 innings against Clemson this weekend to get a big 3-2 victory over the slumping Tigers. Boston College needs to get more consistent in the field with their defense which tens to give up too many extra outs.

The future is bright in Chestnut Hill with Peter Hughes coaching the team and showing what is needed to become an NCAA tourney team in the future.
