Binghamton baseball blanks Maine 5-0

Box Score

VESTAL, N.Y. - Binghamton (21-16-1, 8-6 America East) pitching held visiting Maine (26-13-1, 7-3 AE) scoreless in a nine inning game for the 5-0 victory in an America East baseball game Sunday afternoon at Varsity Field. This was the seventh time this season that the Bearcats have held their opponents scoreless. The teams split the season series 2-2.

In the bottom of the first, junior shortstop Justin Smucker (Bird-in-Hand, Pa.) led off the inning with a walk. Then he advanced to second on a bunt by senior center fielder Aaron Davis (San Francisco, Calif.). Smucker scored on a single by junior first baseman Brendon Hitchcock (Laceyville, Pa.), that is all the run support the Bearcat pitching would need.

The Bearcats scored a pair of runs in the bottom of the seventh and eighth innings for insurance runs. Hitchcock was the only player to have a multiple hit day, going 2-for 4 with a run hit in and a run scored. Freshman third baseman Kyle Klee (Rochester, N.Y.) knocked in a pair of RBI for the Bearcats.

Junior Mike Van Gorder (Vestal, N.Y.) and Jeff Dennis (North Syracuse, N.Y.) combined to pitch the shutout.

The Bearcats will travel to Siena for a 4 p.m. contest on Wednesday.
