LOUDONVILLE, N.Y. -- Binghamton (5-15) scored seven runs in the fifth and sixth innings to defeat host Siena (7-17), 11-5, Saturday afternoon in a non-conference game from Siena Field. Binghamton was lead by seniors Corey Taylor and Peter Bregartner, who each drove in four runs apiece.
Heading into the top of the fifth, Binghamton held a 2-1 lead before platting three runs in their half of the inning. Taylor sent a three-run shot over the left field fence, driving in C.J. Lukaszewski and Dave Ciocchi. BU took a 5-1 advantage into the bottom of the fifth, as Siena got two back, cutting the Bearcat lead to two.
Binghamton starting pitcher, ace James Giulietti, was given some much needed insurance by his teammates in the top of the sixth. With the first two batters retired, BU scored four runs on three hits in the inning to pull away from the Saints and go up 9-3. One of Bregartner's three doubles scored two of the BU runs.
Giulietti (1-4), earning his first win on the year, was in control throughout his six innings of service, giving up three runs on seven hits. Giulietti registered five strikeouts and four walks. Sophomore Joe Swindells closed out the game, pitching three solids innings and was rewarded with the save
Bregartner finished the game 3-4, scoring a run, while Taylor went 2-4 and touched home plate twice. Lukaszewski, hitting from the two spot, went 2-5, scoring three runs for the Bearcats. Freshman second baseman, Daniel Nevares, went 2-4 on the day, scoring a run. Lead-off hitter, Bill Bereszniewicz reached base three times, driving in one run. Five different Bearcats registered multi-hit games.
Per a scheduling change, the Bearcats will stay in the Albany-area and play its originally scheduled home doubleheader at Siena tomorrow afternoon. First pitch of game one is set for 1 p.m.
