BETHLEHEM, Pa. - Lehigh (8-5-1) plated two decisive runs in the fourth inning and posted a 2-0 win over visiting Binghamton (4-7-1) in the first of two scheduled games Sunday afternoon at Goodman Field. The teams then had to settle for a 4-4 tie in the nightcap after fog caused the game to be halted after six innings.
In game one, freshman pitcher Scott Diamond (Guelph, Ontario) had a solid outing, scattering eight hits and two earned runs in six innings. Diamond struck out seven and walked two. The Bearcats, however, couldn't break through on the offensive end, missing out on opportunities in the second inning (bases loaded with no outs) and sixth inning (runners on second and third with two outs). Binghamton left eight men stranded for the game.
Sophomore second baseman Matt Simek (Vestal, N.Y.) went 2-for-3 - the lone BU player with more than one hit.
In the second game, the Bearcats led 4-1 before Lehigh struck for three runs in the bottom of the fifth inning. The game was stopped one inning later as heavy fog rolled in. Junior center fielder Aaron Davis (San Francisco, Calif.) went 2-for-3 with an RBI and junior designated hitter Matthieu Bergeron (St. Celestin, Quebec) and senior shortstop Keith Ford (Broken Arrow, Okla.) each added RBIs. Bergeron now has 13 RBI in 12 games this spring. Sophomore catcher Pat Haughie (St. James, N.Y.) broke through with his first hit of the season - a solo home run in the third inning.
begins a five-game week with a single contest at St. Peters's
