Syracuse was trailing 3-2 in the fourth inning against Boston College when Paris Woods made a spectacular catch. Boston College hit a fly ball down the left field line. Woods sprinted towards the foul line and dove to snatch the ball before it hit the ground. It was an incredible play of speed, body control and athleticism. The play was so impressive, it made the SportsCenter Top 10 on Sunday.
The play kept the score at 3-2 as Boston College had a runner on and that out ended the inning. Syracuse would ultimately lose, however, 5-3. The loss snapped a nine game winning streak for the Orange. The 5-3 loss was just game one of a double header on Saturday. The Eagles would be victorious in the second game as well, this time by a score of 3-1.
