Binghamton baseball drops series opener at BYU 15-0

Box Score

PROVO, Utah - Host Brigham Young (15-12) plated four runs in the first inning and never looked back in roaring to a 15-0 victory over Binghamton (5-5) Friday night from Larry H. Miller Field.

The Cougars jumped on reigning America East Pitcher of the Year Zach Groh (Reading, Pa.), knocking out the Bearcats' ace with four runs in the first and two more in the fourth. BYU then blew the game wide open with seven runs in the fifth inning against BU's bullpen. Six of those runs came with two outs and each was unearned, thanks to three Bearcat errors in the frame. The hosts added single runs in the seventh and eighth innings to complete the scoring.

The Bearcats put runners in scoring position in the second, third and fifth innings but could not capitalize before the Cougars put the game out of reach. Binghamton stranded 10 runners in the game and was outhit 18-7.

Freshman left fielder Joe Charron (Schaghticoke, N.Y.) and senior right fielder Jeff Monaco (Binghamton, N.Y.) had two hits apiece.

The two teams will continue their three-game set with a game at 10 p.m. (EST) on Saturday.
