After scoring a total of 5 runs in their first three games, the Boston University Baseball team finally woke up their bats as they put a pounding on the University of Vermont in the first game of their doubleheader last Saturday. Attribute it to the warmer weather or to the positive effects of Rasputen’s, the BU offense unloaded on UVM to the tune of 14 runs, and took game one of the doubleheader 14-4. Senior Andrew Kratzer held the UVM offense down and let the Terriers cruise easily to their first ever win at UVM. Drew Egan came in relief and pitched two innings, giving up only one run and striking out four.
In game two it was all about the pitching as the Terriers showed their versatility. Bowie Matteson limited Vermont to only one run on four hits in a complete game. Sophomore Jordan Kessel scored on a past ball followed by Senior Outfielder Ben Burkholder scoring on a fielder’s choice from Senior leadoff hitter Mike Robinson. It would be all the Terriers needed, and they drove home with their first sweep of the University of Vermont.
Less than 24 hours after sweeping the doubleheader, more than 200 miles away, the Terriers took the field again against Central Connecticut State. The day would prove to be an easy day as BU swept their second doubleheader in as many days, with wins of 16-8, and 18-2.
The Terriers next travel to American International College in Springfield MA, for a doubleheader on Sunday starting at 12:1230.
