Baseball Upends Northeastern, 6-2
April 21, 2004
Junior Mike Wlodarczyk (Medford, N.J.) pitched a complete game to spark the Boston College baseball team to the 6-2 win over Northeastern in the Beanpot Tournament championship, Wednesday, at Campanelli Stadium in Brockton, Mass. In claiming their seventh Beanpot title overall and second straight, the Eagles raised their record to 16-19 while also avenging a 4-3 loss to their cross-town rival on March 30. The Huskies dropped to 15-11.
Wlodarczyk disposed of the first 12 batters that he saw en route to a 9.0 inning, gem of an effort, where he scattered seven hits, struck out five batters and allowed only two earned runs. Seventy-eight of his 113 pitches went for strikes in a performance that merited him tournament co-MVP honors along with freshman Jared McGuire (Harwich, Mass.), who registered five hits and four RBI over the two days.
Jim Madison of Northeastern picked up his only loss of the season. He surrendered 10 hits, five runs - three earned - with three walks and six strikeouts.
