Stroman Leads Duke Past North Carolina A&T 14-7
Marcus Stroman matched a career high with three RBI and pitched two perfect innings to lead Duke to a 14-7 win over North Carolina A&T on Monday evening at War Memorial Stadium.

Stroman (6-2) started the game and struck out three of the six batters he faced to earn the win before finishing 2-for-4 at the plate. The two-way freshman reached base safely three times and also stole his ninth base of the season as Duke improved to 19-4 in non-conference play.

The Blue Devils (26-21, 7-17 ACC) pounded 14 hits while scoring their most runs since a 15-11 win over No. 11 North Carolina on March 13. Duke's three through seven hitters, led by five-hitter Dennis O'Grady's 3-for-6 performance, combined for nine hits. Every Duke batter recorded a hit in the game while five of them drove in an RBI.

Boston College Loses To No. 16 UConn, 11-7
Junior Mickey Wiswall hit a pair of solo home runs but the Boston College baseball team lost to No. 16 Connecticut, 11-7, Monday afternoon at Eddie Pellagrini Diamond at Commander Shea Field.

Wiswall was 3-for-5 on the day with the two round-trippers. He now has 16 this season which is the third-most in a single season at Boston College and the most since Brian Macchi hit 17 in 2001. He has 34 career homers which is the second-most all-time behind Sean McGowan's 53 home runs.

Sophomore Anthony Melchionda and senior Mike Sudol both continued their hot hitting. Melchionda went 3-for-4 with a double and two runs scored in the game while Sudol was 2-for-3 with a two-run homer. Melchionda is now 11-for-15 in the last four games and is on a seven-game hit streak. Sudol is 7-for-13 in his last four games with four homers and 13 RBI.
