Baseball Captures Beanpot Championship
April 29, 1999
BOSTON - Boston College junior Stephen Langone went 2-for-4 with two home runs and three RBIs to lead Boston College in a 4-2 win in the Beanpot Tournaments championship game. It was BCs fourth title (1990, 1992, 1993) in the 10-year history of the tournament.
The pitcher/designated hitter earned Tournament MVP honors after picking up the victory in a 9-7 win against Northeastern in the first round and then hitting the game-winning home run in the title game.
With the Eagles trailing 2-0 in the bottom of the sixth inning, Langone and senior Sean McGowan both cleared Fenway Park's Green Monster with back-to-back home runs that tied the game. It marked the third time this season Langone and McGowan belted back-to-back homers.
In the seventh inning, Langone smacked his 10th round-tripper of the spring -- a two-run shot -- that sealed the Beanpot championship.
Sophomore Mike Hubbard and junior Eric Olson went 2-for-3 for BC. Hubbard scored the game-winning run on Langones seventh-inning blast.
On the mound, junior Jaime Quiros and sophomore Erik Olson held the Minutemen to two runs on eight hits. Olson hurled 3.1 innings to earn the win.
Boston College (19-18) returns to BIG EAST action against Connecticut on May 1-2. The Eagles and Huskies will play a doubleheader on Saturday, May 1 and finish the three-game series on Sunday, May 2.
