Box Score

BROOKHAVEN, N.Y. -- Binghamton baseball (17-20, 9-4 AE) used a strong pitching performance from sophomore righty Jay Lynch to beat Stony Brook (30-10, 11-2 AE) 4-2 Sunday afternoon on the campus of Dowling College. With the win, the Bearcats snapped the Seawolves' 11-game win streak and pulled to within two games of the league leaders.

Lynch (4-4) allowed two runs in a nine-inning, complete game. He scattered nine hits, struck out eight and didn't walk a batter.

A two-out triple in the first inning gave Stony Brook a 1-0 lead. But BU answered with two runs in the second frame. Sophomore Mike Thompson stroked an RBI double and later scored on an infield throwing error.

Thompson made it 3-1 in the sixth inning with a sacrifice fly that scored senior Corey Taylor. Taylor had led off with a single and went to third on a single by classmate Peter Bregartner.

The Seawolves cut their deficit to 3-2 with a run on two hits in the bottom of the sixth. But BU regained a two-run cushion in the ninth when junior Dave Ciocchi hit an RBI double to score freshman Bill Bereszniewicz, who had singled with one out.

In the bottom of the ninth, Stony Brook sent the tying run to the plate with one out before Lynch buckled down to record back-to-back swinging strikeouts to end the game.

Bregartner went 3-for-4, Thompson had two RBI and Bereszniewicz and senior catcher C.J. Lukaszewski had two hits apiece.

Binghamton hosts Cornell in a non-conference games at 4 p.m. on Wednesday.
