Game 2 Box

VESTAL, N.Y.– Binghamton (17-21) stretched its win streak to seven games with a non-conference doubleheader sweep of visiting NJIT Saturday afternoon at Varsity Field. The Bearcats won the opener 7-1 and took the nightcap 15-5.

In game one, senior starter Zach Groh (Reading, Pa.) picked up his second straight win with a complete-game six-hitter. Groh (3-3) struck out five, walked one and allowed only a third-inning run.

Binghamton broke a 1-1 tie with two runs in the third inning, and then added two in the fifth and two more in the sixth inning. Freshman third baseman Brian Ivan (Toronto, Ontario) had a two-run single in the fifth and drove in three runs. Junior DH Tom Baileys (Apalachin, N.Y.) and junior shortstop Kyle Klee (Rochester, N.Y.) each went 2-for-3 with an RBI.

The second game evolved into a three-hour affair, with the teams exhausting 10 pitchers and racking up 25 combined hits in the seven-inning game. Binghamton squandered an early 4-0 lead before breaking a 4-4 tie with five runs in the fifth inning. The Bearcats then broke the game open with six runs in the sixth.

Freshman reliever Morgan Smith (Clifton Park, N.Y.) was credited with his second win of the season.

Klee and freshman right fielder Peter Bregartner (East Islip, N.Y.) each went 3-for-4 with three RBI and sophomore left fielder Joe Charron (Schaghticoke, N.Y.) took over the team lead with two RBI. Charron now has 31 RBI, including 13 in his last 11 games.

The teams trade roles on Sunday, with the Highlanders hosting the Bearcats in a doubleheader in Newark, N.J.
