VESTAL, N.Y.-- The Binghamton University Bearcats (15-30) rode the pitching of senior Greg Sousa (Congers) to a 6-1 victory in the first game of a doubleheader with C.W. Post (11-29-1) on Saturday afternoon, before the visiting Pioneers captured the second game 11-4.

In game one, Sousa took a no-hitter into the sixth inning before Joe Grillo lined a clean single to center field leading off the sixth. Sousa wound up with a three-hitter, going the distance for his fifth win of the season. He walked four, struck out five and allowed only an unearned run in the seventh inning.

The Bearcats opened the scoring in the bottom of the fourth inning. Tim Collar (Groton) led off with a single. T.J. Kowalchuk (Stormville) then reached on a bunt single, and the runners advanced to second and third on a throwing error. Tyler McGonigal (Kendall) hit a sacrifice fly to right to bring home Collar. In the fifth inning, Jamie Boyer (Lancaster, Pa.) hit a one-out triple and Tony Berube (Vestal) reached on an infield hit. After Kyle Loucks (Johnson City) walked to load the bases, Collar singled to center to bring home the second run of the game.

Binghamton added insurance in the bottom of the sixth inning, scoring four times. Brian Lindsay (Horseheads) walked leading off and advanced to second on a sacrifice. Jacob Thiel (San Bruno, Calif.) tripled to right center field, and Boyer followed with a two-run home run. One out later, Loucks homered to put BU ahead 6-0. For the game, Boyer was 3-for-4 with two runs scored and two runs batted in.

With two outs and a runner on first in the top of the seventh, pinch-hitter Pete Esposito took advantage of an error that prolonged his at-bat, lining a double into left field to score John Maser, who had singled with one out.

In the second game, the Pioneers’ jumped on BU starter Mike Weglinski (Hyde Park) for four runs with two outs in the top of the first. Grillo began the rally with a double. Following his hit, Tim O’Sullivan singled home the game’s first run. Esposito and Hernan Morales then hit back-to-back doubles for two more runs, and Maser singled for the final run. C.W. Post added four more runs in the second inning, and scored single runs in the third, fourth and fifth.

Binghamton scored its first runs in the bottom of the second inning. Collar was hit by a pitch leading off the inning, and McGonigal bunted for a base hit one out later. Collar was thrown out at the plate on a single by Shawn Collyer (Cortland), but the throw to the plate allowed the runners to advance to second and third. After Matt Caputo (Pine Bush) walked to load the bases, Thiel lined a two-run single into left field. Boyer followed with a walk to load the bases, but the Bearcats did no further damage. Collar hit a two-out solo home run in the fifth inning and Boyer had an RBI single in the sixth to score Cesar Suero (Brooklyn). For the day, Collar was 3-for-5 with a pair of runs and RBI.

The team’s will play a single, nine-inning game on Sunday, with the first pitch slated for noon.
