Keys: In the wake of the gambling scandal at Maine that resulted in the suspension of 13 baseball players, including several starters, the big question is what can a makeshift lineup do against the Terriers? Smith will make his first collegiate start after five relief appearances. BU took a five-game losing streak into a Friday game against Brandeis. Maine has lost seven in a row and hasn’t played since a 9-8 loss at Boston College on April 8. Maine is hitting .277 and is averaging 4.9 runs per game. BU is at .276 and averaging 5.2 runs a game. Maine’s team ERA is 6.55 compared to BU’s 7.44 ERA. BU has made 43 errors and Maine has committed 35. Maine swept the Terriers in Boston a year ago, 15-1, 8-0, 5-0.
