rallies past Binghamton 12-6
N.Y.--Despite grabbing a 6-0 in the top of the first inning,
the Bearcats (5-16-1) were defeated 12-6 by Cornell (9-9) in
a non-conference game Thursday afternoon at Hoy Field. Binghamton's
pitching staff was touched for 14 hits and allowed 12 walks in
The Bearcats scored all six of their runs before ever taking
the field. Senior outfielder Tony Berube (Vestal, N.Y./Keystone
College) opened the scoring with an RBI single and junior
outfielder T.J. Kowalchuk (Stormville, N.Y./Carmel) plated
two more runs with a single. After a bases-loaded walk was issued
to sopomore outfielder David Lewin (North White Plains, N.Y./Valhalla),
senior infielder Dusty Edwards (Windsor, N.Y./Bromme CC)
lined a two-run single to cap the six-run outburst.
Cornell scored a pair of runs in the bottom half of the inning,
knocking out BU starter Jake Thiel (San Bruno, Calif./Canada
College) with two out in the inning. The Big Red scored two
more runs in the third inning before seizing the lead with three
runs in the fourth inning.
Binghamton was limited to just five hits over the last eight
innings, and Cornell added insurance runs in the seventh and
eighth innings to stave off any chances of a Bearcats rally.
The Bearcats return to conference play against Stony Brook this
weekend. The series was originally scheduled to be played at
Binghamton, but weather conditions have forced the games to be
played at Stony Brook. The two teams will square off in a doubleheader
on Sunday and Monday at noon.
