I went off and did other things for a few hours, expecting the game to be long over by the time I got back to Edmond's Hall. As I walked toward my room, I heard PA announcements coming from Shea. I joked that maybe the Eagles were in the midst of a miraculous comeback which prolonged the game.
Sure enough, that was the case. After trailing 10-2 in the 6th inning, BC scored nine runs in three innings to go up 11-10. Mike Belfiore came in and closed the door on NC State in the 9th, handing BC what was quite possibly their biggest and most exciting home win since joining the ACC.
The Eagles are now 19-10 overall and a very respectable 7-6 in ACC play. Something's brewin' at Shea Field.
BC's next game is tomorrow night against UMass in the Baseball Beanpot semifinals, to be held in Brockton's Campanelli Stadium.
