Chestnut Hill, Mass. - The Holy Cross baseball team was defeated by Boston College, 7-1 in a non-conference game at Shea Field on Tuesday afternoon. The Crusaders have now lost 10 of their last 11 and fall to 11-20 overall, while the Eagles improve to 27-14.
Sophomore Andrew Tenaglia (Duxbury, Mass) led the Crusaders offensively with a 3-for-4 performance at the plate, including the team's only RBI. Junior Tucker Frawley (New Haven, Conn.) went 2-for-3 with a run scored.
The Eagles got on the board first, posting a run in the bottom of the third when Mike Flynn came around to score after a misplayed bunt. BC then added three more runs in the fourth inning and took a 6-0 lead in the bottom half of the seventh after plating two runs on two hits. Boston College then scored again in the home half of the eighth to seal the win.
The lone Holy Cross run was scored in the eighth inning after Tenaglia singled to right field, scoring Frawley, who had walked and advanced to second on a Mike Schell single to center.
HC starter Matt O'Brien threw four-plus innings, allowing three earned runs. Kevin O'Dea, Matt Blake and Scott Hampe finished the game for the Crusaders, allowing three runs on five hits. BC pitcher Terry Doyle threw eight innings and allowed just one run, while fanning 10 batters.
