Baseball Still Winless After Losing To Drexel, 11-6
Feb. 23, 2003
CHARLESTON, S.C. - The tough times continued for the baseball team as it lost its third consecutive game at the Charleston Crab House Challenge, this one to previously winless Drexel by a score of 11-6.
The Dragons (1-4) opened the scoring with four runs in the third inning and didn't let up, scoring at least one run in each of the next six frames. For the second time in three games, the Eagles were shaky with the glove, committing five errors.
Mike Dove's two-run single to center and John Tredinnick's two-run double to left-center put Drexel up 4-0 after 2-1/2 innings. It extended the lead to 5-0 in the next inning on Jeff Lamb's RBI single.
Josh Brandt's run-scoring groundout in the top of the fifth upped the Dragon advantage to 6-1, but BC pushed three across in the bottom of the inning to pull within two at 6-4. The big hits were an RBI single by redshirt junior Ryan Leahy (Salem, Mass.), a sacrifice fly by junior Josh DiScipio (Schenectady, N.Y.) and an RBI double by Matt Lederhos (Westwood, Mass.).
That was as close as the Eagles got as they were out-scored by Drexel 5-2 the rest of the way to account for the final margin.
Senior starter Matt Elfeldt (Delmar, N.Y.) took the loss as he was roughed up for six runs (five earned) in four innings.
Next up for Boston College is its annual Spring Break trip. Beginning Friday, Feb. 28, the Eagles will play 11 games in 10 days at various locations in Florida. The first is an exhibition this Friday against the Boston Red Sox, which will be shown live on UPN 38 at 7 p.m.
