Boston College Downs Hoosiers, 6-1
Feb. 19, 2011
MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. - The Indiana University baseball team (0-2) came out on the wrong end of a 6-1 ball game Saturday in Myrtle Beach. Indiana faced an ACC-school for the second straight day, playing Boston College (1-1) at BB&T Coastal Field in the second contest of a three-game weekend for the Hoosiers.
Indiana jumped ahead right away in the bottom of the first as Jerrud Sabourin crossed the plate. Sabourin reached first by pulling a line drive single into right field facing an 0-2 count. Alex Dickerson was up next and did the same, poking an 0-2 count single through the right side of the infield and putting men on the corners. With the single, Dickerson stretched his hitting streak to 18 games, dating back to last season. Sabourin ran the last 90 feet off an Eagle wild pitch to push IU ahead 1-0.
Boston College did not trail long, however, taking advantage of a botched run-down and fielding error by the Hoosiers to score three runs (two unearned) in the next half inning.
A 6-4-3 double play got Indiana out of a bases-loaded jam in the third frame, but the Eagles tacked on three more runs before the final pitch for a 6-1 margin.
A nationally-ranked foe awaits Indiana in the weekend finale on Sunday, when the Hoosiers head back to Charles Watson Stadium for a true road contest at #20 Coastal Carolina (2-0).
