The Boston College baseball team beat the Miami Hurricanes, 5-3, Saturday in Coral Gables, Fla. for its first-ever Super Regional win. For that, they can thank in large part to a player who was drafted during the game. BC pitcher Mike King was earning the win over the Hurricanes at the same time he was being taken by the Miami Marlins in the 12th round of the Major League Baseball amateur draft. The junior right-hander allowed three runs on nine hits, helping the Eagles sit on the doorstep of their first College World Series berth in 49 years. The Eagles and Hurricanes will play a winner-take-all game Sunday, with the winner heading to Omaha, Nebraska. Miami, who last won the national title in 2001, would be headed to the World Series for a second straight season. Boston College, which is now 2-14 all-time at the home of the Hurricanes, is scheduled to send out freshman right-hander Jacob Stevens (4-3, 2.14 ERA) for Sunday's game. Miami is slated to start sophomore right Jesse Lepore (9-0, 2.20) For a complete box score, click here.
