Box Score

KNOXVILLE, Tenn.-- Binghamton baseball (0-4) continued its offensive pop with 14 hits but stranded 12 baserunners in a 10-7 loss to Kennesaw State (2-7) Friday afternoon at Tennessee's Robert M. Lindsay Field at Lindsey Nelson Stadium.

The Bearcats took a 7-5 lead with three runs in the fourth inning but Kennesaw countered with three in the sixth to reclaim the lead. Binghamton plated one run in the seventh to cut its deficit to one, 8-7. The Bearcats could've had more were it not for an inning-ending double play. Kennesaw then added two insurance runs in the eighth inning.

Junior left fielder Peter Bregartner went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run and three RBI to pace the offense. Bregartner cleared the fence with a two-out blast in the third inning. Binghamton followed with a single-single-walk sequence to load the bases but a called third strike ended the inning with three stranded.

Freshman third baseman Joel Stubbs went 2-for-5 with an RBI. Stubbs delivered a run-scoring single in BU's three-run fourth inning. The Bearcats strung together four hits but left two more stranded to end the frame.

Sophomore starter Mike Augliera scattered eight hits and five earned runs in 4 2/3 innings.

Junior second baseman Jim Calderone, senior DH Joe Charron and junior center fielder Henry Dunn had two hits apiece. Charron raised his season average to .438.

Kennesaw State helped its cause with two home runs - a solo shot in the first inning and a two-run homer in the second.

Binghamton plays host Tennessee at 5 p.m.
