Bearcats' win streak snapped in 8-4 loss at Siena

Box Score

LOUDONVILLE, N.Y.--Host Siena (17-16) opened up a 4-0 lead and posted an 8-4 victory over Binghamton (15-10) Tuesday afternoon, snapping the Bearcats' six-game win streak. Binghamton had won 11 of its last 13 games entering the contest.

The Saints jumped on BU starter Chris Shores for one run in the first inning and three more in the third. Meanwhile two Siena pitchers allowed just five Binghamton hits - four singles and a three-run home run by junior first baseman Jamie Boyer (Lancaster, Pa./Manheim Township).

Siena plated three runs in the third inning, thanks to four walks, two wild pitches and just two hits. Trailing 4-0, BU got three back on Boyer's second home run of the season. But the Saints added two more runs in the sixth inning and two more in the eighth. The Bearcats scored their final run on a sacrifice fly from freshman designated hitter Brendon Hitchcock (Laceyville, Pa.). Hitchcock went 1-for-3 to extend his hit streak to 13 games. Five different players had one hit each for Binghamton.

The Bearcats finally open their 2004 home slate with a three-game weekend series against America East opponent Maine. The teams will play a doubleheader Saturday beginning at noon.
