Week in review

It was a brutal weekend in Midtown for Tech.

The Jackets saw their losing streak extend to six after Boston College swept Tech at Russ Chandler Stadium. The Eagles put up 31 runs, won Thursday’s game by seven and Saturday’s finale by nine.

In Friday’s defeat, BC scored three in the 10th, then Tech had the bases loaded with nobody out in the bottom of the inning and could only muster one run before hitting into a game-ending double play.

Tech pitching was touched up for 28 earned runs in the series.

Week ahead

Tech’s week starts with a home game against Presbyterian at 6 p.m. Tuesday at Russ Chandler Stadium. The Blue Hose (13-15) took 2 of 3 at Gardner-Webb over the weekend and have somewhat recovered from a six-game losing streak in March.

The Jackets then go back on the road to resume conference play with a trip to Pittsburgh. The Panthers (12-13, 2-10 ACC) started the year 8-1 but are just 4-12 since. Pitt dropped a series at Virginia Tech over the weekend and travels to Youngstown State on Tuesday before hosting Tech.

Tech and Pitt go into the week as the bottom two teams in the ACC’s Coastal Division.
