Boston College Opens ACC Baseball Tournament With Loss To Top-Seeded Cavaliers

The eighth seeded Boston College Eagles baseball team gave the top-seeded Virginia Cavaliers a scare in the first game of the 2010 ACC Baseball Championship. Despite seven solid innings from BC ace Pat Dean, the 'Hoos used a 3-run eighth inning to beat the Eagles 6-4 on Wednesday afternoon at NewBridge Bank Park in Greensboro, NC.

BC used a three run 7th inning to take a 4-3 lead, but the Cavaliers outlasted Dean, who threw 112 pitches before giving way to Taylor Lasko.

Sophomore Anthony Melchionda and John Spatola provided the big bats for BC, going a combined 4-for-8 with a pair of doubles and a home run.

The Eagles (29-27) will try to regroup as they face No. 10 Miami in the second game of the ACC Baseball Championship today starting at noon Eastern. The game will be broadcast on NESN.

While not impossible, BC now faces an uphill battle if they hope to make the ACC Baseball Championship on Sunday. The Eagles must win against both Miami and Florida State, and hope for two Virginia losses, if they have any plans of crashing the ACC baseball Championship game.
