Binghamton baseball falls at Le Moyne in slugfest 21-16
Teams combine for 38 hits, 37 runs

Box Score

SYRACUSE, N.Y. - Le Moyne (21-15) scored nine runs in the third inning and outslugged Binghamton (19-13) 21-16 in a non-conference baseball game Tuesday afternoon from Dick Rockwell Field. The Dolphins, who own the nation's longest current win streak (13), won the battle of midweek pitching rotations.

Binghamton, which sits in first place in the America East (13-2), used seven pitchers in a pre-determined rotation, and Le Moyne capitalized with 20 hits and 21 runs. The Dolphins plated nine runs in the third inning to erase a 4-0 BU lead, and then broke a 14-14 tie with two runs in the seventh and five more in the eighth frame.

Binghamton, which was playing without four starters, committed four errors to aid the cause.

Junior third baseman Ryan James (Wading River, N.Y.) led BU's offensive charges with a 3-for-5, five RBI performance. He hit a two-run double in the seventh inning and added a two-run home run in the ninth - his first of the season. Senior center fielder Jeff Monaco (Binghamton, N.Y.) went 3-for-5 with a two-run home run and three RBI and sophomore left fielder Ken Jacobi (Milford, Conn.) was 4-for-4 with an RBI.

Senior first baseman Brendon Hitchcock (Laceyville, Pa.) went 2-for-6 with a home run and three RBI. Hitchcock, who leads the America East in hitting (.416), drove in three runs for the third consecutive game. He has 11 hits and 12 RBI in his last five games. Sophomore shortstop Kyle Klee (Rochester, N.Y.) went 2-for-6 with two RBI and three runs scored. Freshman second baseman Jeff Abrams (Rochester, N.Y.) went 2-for-4 with an RBI and three runs scored.

Binghamton begins a pivotal four-game America East weekend series against second place Stony Brook with a single game Friday at 3 p.m.
