The Eagles baseball team notched a pair of wins at Wisconsin Lutheran College in a Northern Athletics Conference doubleheader on Sunday, 8-3 and 10-9. The wins helped BU improve to 21-14 overall and 14-4 in the NAC. In game one, James Callahan went the full nine innings for the complete-game victory. Callahan scattered 10 hits and allowed the three earned runs. He improved his personal record to 4-2 with his second complete game of the year. Rick Porcaro led the Eagles' 12-hit attack, going 3-for-5, while teammates Kyle Bergman and Matthew Brewer each had two hits. Porcaro and Kevin Graham each had doubles, as well. In the second game, freshman Tommy Anselmo picked up his second win of the season - and of the week - with two scoreless innings of relief. Dan Vincenti was credited with his team-leading sixth save of the season. Graham, Bobby Voss and Brendan Keane each had three-hit games as the Eagles amassed 12 hits as a team. Voss drove in three runs, while Keane and Graham each had two RBI. Brewer and Voss had a double apiece, while Graham knocked a pair of two-baggers.
