Immediate Release: May 7, 2006
With two outs in the seventh inning, Wertepny drilled a three-run double - one of two hits he collected in the game. Hartford responded with one run in the bottom of the frame but BU tacked on single runs in the eighth and ninth innings to fend off any Hawks rally.
Junior left fielder Mike Papili (Lancaster, N.Y.) went 3-for-5 and junior shortstop Justin Smucker (Bird-in-Hand, Pa.) went 3-for-6. Sophomore third baseman Ryan James (Wading River, N.Y.) was 2-for-4 with an RBI.
Junior Mike Van Gorder (Vestal, N.Y.) tossed six strong innings for his team-high fifth win of the season. Van Gorder (5-1) allowed one run on four hits and lowered his season earned run average to 2.80 in 10 appearances.
Binghamton next heads to Louisiana for a three-game weekend set at University of New Orleans.
