Baseball Loses To Lipscomb, 10-6
Feb. 27, 2005
The Boston College baseball team lost to Lipscomb, 10-6, on Sunday, and finished the Music City Classic with a 0-4 record.
Sophomore Nick Asselin made his first collegiate start on the mound and allowed seven hits and six earned runs in four innings of work. Asselin had five strikeouts on the afternoon.
Both teams struggled defensively, as Lipscomb committed five errors and BC made four. The Eagles have nine errors in their last two games.
Lipscomb got off to a fast start, scoring two runs in the bottom of the first and another in the third. After Asselin allowed five consecutive runners to reach base in the fifth, he was replaced on the hill by classmate Ted Ratliff. The righthander recorded three outs, but not before surrendering three hits and two more runs to give Lipscomb a 10-0 lead.
The Eagles bats came alive in the seventh, as right fielder Ryne Reynoso reached base with a two-out triple. Senior Marco Albano proceeded to reach on an error by the Lipscomb center fielder and Reynoso crossed the plate with BC's first run of the day.
The Eagles continued their offensive surge in the top of the eighth, as they plated five runs to make the score 10-6. BC pounded out four of their seven hits in the inning, including RBI singles from junior Robert Dittrich and senior Phil D'Alonzo. Johnny Ayers registered his first career hit with a two-run triple.
Dittrich and shortstop Marco Albano recorded hits in each of the team's four games in Nashville, Tenn.
The Eagles will return to action on Friday, March 4, when they travel to Fort Myers, Fla. to take on the world champion Boston Red Sox in the teams' annual exhibition game.
