CBD Weekend Visit: Boston College vs Georgia Tech

ZaneEvansFeaturedGame 1: Georgia Tech 12 Boston College 5

No. 14 Georgia Tech continued its hot start to the season, downing Boston College 12-5 in the first of a three game series. Senior RHP Buck Farmer picked his 4th win of the season with a 6 inning, 8 hit, 5 earned run, 7 strikeout, 3 walk performance. Farmer wasn’t his usual sharp self, as he had entered the game with just one earned run allowed all season before surrounding five to the Eagles, but his offense was able to bail him out scoring the final 8 runs of the contest. Kyle Wren, Daniel Spignola, and Zane Evans each had three-hit games, with Evans blasting his 7th home run of the season to deep right center field. Boston College starter Eric Stevens dropped to 0-4 on the season, finishing the game with a line of 5.1 IP, 11 H, 6 ER, and 4 K’s. Boston College jumped off to a 2-0 lead after picking up a run in each of the first two innings but was unable to hold onto the lead. BC has been one of the Farmer’s toughest career opponents, especially after last season’s 4.1 IP, 14 H, 11 ER performance at Commander Shea field in Boston. The Yellow Jackets improved to 7-1 all-time against the Eagles in Atlanta and 14-7 overall. In games where at least one Tech player hits a home run, the Jackets hold a 9-0 record.
