Immediate Release: March 7, 2010
KNOXVILLE, Tenn.-- Binghamton (1-6) collected 15 hits but Kennesaw State (4-7) plated runs in four consecutive innings en route to a 10-5 win over the Bearcats Saturday night at Tennessee's Lindsey Nelson Stadium.
Down 2-0 early, BU scored three runs in the second to take a 3-2 lead. But Kennesaw State responded with two in the third inning, three in the fourth, one in the fifth and two more in the sixth inning. The fourth-inning tallies were particularly damaging as they all came with two outs after two singles and a walk, hit batter, wild pitch and error.
Offensively, BU looked sharp as every player had at least one hit and the Bearcats owned a 15-11 advantage in hits. But BU stranded eight and the Owls strung together some timely hits to deal the Bearcats their third loss in four games on the trip.
Junior center fielder Henry Dunn went 2-for-5 with two RBI, senior DH Joe Charron went 3-for-4 and sophomore first baseman Dave Ciocchi and junior right fielder Peter Bregartner each had two hits and an RBI. Bregartner lifted his team-best batting average to .462 and Charron moved his mark up to .448. Ciocchi's RBI was his team-high eighth in seven games this spring.
Bregartner's leadoff home run sparked BU's three-run second inning. Freshman third baseman Joel Stubbs had an RBI single and Dunn recorded an RBI double as BU put together four hits before stranding two.
Freshman Joe Swindells was the most effective of the three BU pitchers. He pitched two scoreless innings, allowing two hits and striking out one.
Binghamton begins a three-game set at Maryland-Eastern Shore on Saturday.
