BRIGHTON, Mass. – The Harvard baseball team (23-12, 12-6 Ivy) dropped its final non-conference matchup of the season to Boston College, 2-1, Wednesday night at the Harrington Athletics Village. 

Harvard scored its lone run in the fourth inning. Junior Jake Suddleson began the inning with a double to right field. After advancing to third, classmate Hunter Bigge hit a deep sacrifice fly to right field, which scored Suddleson. 

Boston College responded with a sacrifice fly of its own in the bottom half of the inning. The game would remain tied until the eighth inning, when the Eagles scored a run on an infield error. 

Harvard Highlights:

  • In his second start of the season, sophomore Chris McGrory pitched four innings, allowing just one hit and three strikeouts.
  • Suddleson, the player of the week in the Ivy League, hit a double to right field, later scoring Harvard's run. 
  • Junior Grant Stone pitched two innings and struck out two Eagles batters. Classmate JT Bernard followed with a scoreless inning of his own.
