LAST TIME OUT
Senior catcher Brittany Wilkins posted her sixth multiple RBI game of the year on Wednesday at Providence. The catcher also recorded her 12th multiple hit game this season.
Freshman CJ Chirichigno has five hits in the last five games.
Five Eagles are hitting .300 or greater this season: Nicole D’Argento (.333), Wilkins (.328), Filler (.325), Lynette-Krech (.307) and Maria Pandolfo (.300). Boston College has not had more than three players bat at or above .300 since 2001, when Cara Blumfield led a group of five Eagles with a then-school record .389 clip.
Rene Delagrammaticas leads the ACC with 12 sacrifice bunts. The Eagles have scored five times when the captain executes a sac bunt. BC has scored 3-of-3 times when the Vista, Calif. native reaches safely on a bunt.
Filler’s .593 slugging percentage is third highest in the ACC. Only Tory Speer’s .644 slugging percentage in 2011 was greater among BC freshmen.
