LOWELL, Mass.—Abby Jamieson went 4-for-4 and drove in a pair of runs, leading UMass Lowell (8-23, 1-5 AE) to a 6-4 win over Binghamton (12-17, 3-3 AE) in an America East conference softball game on Monday afternoon at River View Field. The second game of the doubleheader was suspended due to darkness with the Bearcats leading 9-3 in the top of the fifth inning.
The two teams are scheduled to conclude their three-game series on Wednesday at 3 p.m. The suspended game would be continued at that time. It will be decided tomorrow morning, however, whether to play the series out later in the day.
