IN-GAME UPDATES: @GuerSmith, @RWalkerAdvocate

STARTING PITCHERS: Tulane, Jr. RH Emerson Gibbs (6-3, 2.44) vs. Boston College, Jr. RH Justin Dunn (3-1, 1.35)

WHAT TO WATCH: Dunn has electric stuff, so Tulane will need to take advantage of the chances its gets. If the Wave chases pitches out of the zone, it will be a long day.

ABOUT BOSTON COLLEGE: The Eagles don’t hit many home runs (18) or give up many homers (21). With Dunn on the mound and a team batting average of .266, they are prepared for a pitchers’ duel.
