Boston College Sweeps Harvard in Afternoon Doubleheader

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - The Boston College softball team picked up two key non-conference wins on a cold Thursday afternoon defeating Harvard by the scores of 5-4 and 6-4 at Soldiers Field in Cambridge, Mass.

The wins improve Boston College to 12-22 for the season, while the losses drop Harvard to 15-18.

Boston College now improves to 11-6 on the season when it scores three runs or more in a game.

In game one, pitching dominated the first four innings of the game as both teams combined for only six hits in that time.

Harvard opened the scoring in the bottom of the fifth inning scoring all of its runs on back-to-back home runs off of BC starter Nicole D'Argento. A three-run home run by Whitney Shaw, and a solo shot by Jessica Ferri put the Crimson up 4-0 after five innings.

Dani Weir hit a single with one out in the inning, and the comeback was officially on. After a Renee Ramos fielder's choice and walks by Amy Tunstall and Blair Destito the Eagles had the bases loaded with one out. Maria Pandolfo picked up an RBI by drawing a walk to score Ramos making the score 4-1.

With the bases still loaded Ali Lynette-Krech cleared them with one swing of the bat doubling to right center scoring all three runners and tying the game up at 4-4.
