SHEREVEPORT, La. -- Host Centenary (9-9) scored three runs in the bottom of the seventh inning and went on to beat Binghamton (6-10) 5-3 to salvage the final game of the three-game series Sunday afternoon from Shehee Stadium. The Bearcats outhit the Gents 10-9 but stranded eight and saw its bullpen squander a late-inning lead.
Trailing 2-1 in the seventh, BU struck for two runs on four hits to go ahead 3-2. Senior second baseman Jim Calderone and junior center fielder Henry Dunn produced RBI singles. But in the bottom of the inning, Centenary scored three runs on three hits and two walks and BU couldn't rally in the final two frames.
The heart of BU's lineup struggled on the day - the 3-4-5-6 hitters went a combined 2-for-13.
Freshman Jay Lynch provided another solid start, going 6.1 innings and scattering five hits and two earned runs. He left with the lead and received a no decision.
Up next is the stiffest test in BU's Division I tenure. Binghamton travels to Baton Rouge to face reigning NCAA champion and fourth-ranked LSU in a single game on Wednesday.
