Binghamton baseball rallies for 10-8 win over Siena

Box Score

VESTAL, N.Y. -- Host Binghamton (13-13) scored six runs in the bottom of the seventh inning en route to a 10-8 win over Siena (8-24) in non-conference baseball action on Tuesday afternoon at Varsity Field. With the win, the Bearcats have now won their last four games.

Trailing 6-3 in the bottom of the seventh inning, the Bearcats started their comeback on a one-out RBI single by junior left fielder Joe Charron. He later scored on a two-run single by senior designated hitter Tom Baileys, which tied the game at 6-6. Junior shortstop Jeff Abrams put the Bearcats ahead on a RBI single and junior second baseman Jim Calderone broke open the game with a two-out, two-run single.

Eric Mruczek pulled Siena to within 9-7 on a solo home in the top of the eighth inning. In the bottom of the frame, however, sophomore center fielder Corey Taylor led off with a home run as Binghamton reclaimed a three-run advantage.

The Saints tacked on a run in the top of the ninth inning but left the tying runs on base when the game ended.

Freshman pitcher Billy Hurley (1-0) earned his first career win while senior Greg Lane earned his fifth save of the season. The loss was tagged to Dan Pendleton (1-1).

Up next for Binghamton is a pivotal four-game America East Conference series against defending champion Stony Brook. The first-place Bearcats host the Seawolves on Saturday and Sunday in a pair of noon doubleheaders.
