Game 1 Box
Game 2 Box

TEANECK, N.J.– Visiting Binghamton (6-14) and Fairleigh Dickinson (3-16) split 4-3 games Saturday afternoon at FDU Field. The Bearcats took the opener before the host Knights captured the nightcap.

In game one, senior starter Zach Groh (Reading, Pa.) scattered eight hits and two runs over six innings, earning his second win of the spring. Groh struck out five and walked two before giving way to junior Greg Lane (Binghamton, N.Y.), who pitched the seventh inning for his first save.

Binghamton snapped a 1-1 tie with a three-run sixth inning. Freshman right fielder Peter Bregartner (East Islip, N.Y.) and sophomore left fielder Joe Charron (Schaghticoke, N.Y.) ripped back-to-back RBI doubles and freshman third baseman Brian Ivan (Toronto, Ontario) added an RBI single.

Bregartner went 2-for-4 with the RBI and Ivan drove in two runs.

In game two, BU was held to just two hits but had good chances to steal the win in the late innings. Trailing 4-0, the Bearcats struck for three runs in the sixth inning - thanks to a one-out, three-run blast from Charron, his third of the season. But a double play ended BU's inning and after putting the potential tying run back on base in the seventh, another double play ended the game.

BU lefthander Jeff Dennis (North Syracuse, N.Y.) took the loss after allowing three earned runs on six hits over six innings. Dennis (1-3) struck out four and walked three.

Bregartner went 1-for-2 but no other Bearcat mustered a hit in the defeat.

The two teams will play another twinbill Sunday beginning at noon.
