The Boston College players spilled out of their dugout on the first-base side just as the ball reached the warning track in right field. The Eagles emerged to greet Scott Braren and Logan Hoggarth, the beneficiaries of Miami's second error of the fourth inning yesterday.Braren and Hoggarth had both scored to give BC a two-run lead and the Eagles held on to beat host and No. 3 national seed Miami, 5-3, in Game 2 of the Coral Gables Super Regional at Alex Rodriguez Park.
In what might be the Cinderella story of the 2016 college baseball season, Boston College will meet Miami this weekend in South Florida for the right to advance to the College World Series.
In addition to preparing for this weekend’s super regional against Boston College, 16 UM players are also preparing to find out their future as the three-day Major League Baseball draft begins Thursday.
The Eagles are one of 16 teams remaining in the NCAA Tournament.
When people think of the Sweet Sixteen, they think of the NCAA Basketball Tournament. March Madness culls their tournament field down from 64 teams to 16 in the first weekend, then use the second weekend to go from 16 to four so it can crown its national champion in the third week of play.
