BU baseball players Taylor, Giulietti earn all-region honors
Both players named to ABCA All-Northeast second team

ABCA All-Northeast Teams

VESTAL, N.Y. -- After steering the BU baseball team to another record-breaking season, juniors Corey Taylor and James Giulietti were selected to the ABCA All-Northeast Team, the association announced today. Both players were placed on the second team, meaning Taylor was deemed one of the top six outfielders in the region and Giulietti one of the top eight pitchers in the region, which encompasses 40 teams from nine conferences.

It was the second all-region honor for Taylor, who also earned second team status in 2009. He was the America East Player of the Year after hitting .370 with 14 home runs and a school-record 66 RBI. Taylor led the conference in home runs, RBI, slugging (.679) and was third in stolen bases (20). He ranks 11th in the nation in RBI/game (1.4). Already the program leader in career home runs (34), Taylor is closing in on the all-time RBI record as well, needing three to tie former standout and fellow America East Player of the Year Brendon Hitchcock (2004-07). Taylor has the top two season RBI totals in program history.

Giulietti, the America East co-Pitcher of the Year, earned second team all-region accolades. He posted an 8-2 record with a 2.15 ERA and had more than a 5-to-1 strikeout-to-walk ratio (74-to-14). Giulietti was dominant against conference opponents, going 6-0 with a 1.49 ERA in league play and amassing 41 strikeouts against just three walks. He set a school record for wins and his ERA is ranked 15th in the country. He led the conference in ERA, fewest walks (1.43/game), and fewest home runs (0.20/game) and ranked second in wins, strikeouts and innings pitched (88.0).

The pair become the sixth and seventh BU all-region players since the program elevated to Division I in 2002.

Binghamton went 31-20 and captured the program's fourth consecutive America East regular season title. The Bearcats, coached by Tim Sinicki, set records for wins in a season, consecutive wins (14), conference wins (21) and win-loss percentage (21-3, .875). The team increased its win total for a seventh straight season - an NCAA record - and ranked sixth out of 68 teams in the region.
