BU baseball overwhelms UMBC 19-2 for 11th consecutive win
Bearcats on verge of fourth straight America East regular season title

Box Score

BALTIMORE, Md. -- Binghamton (27-18, 18-3 AE) ran its school-record win streak to 11 with a 19-2 thrashing of UMBC (9-35, 4-16 AE) Saturday afternoon at The Baseball Factory Field. The Bearcats, winners of 16 of their last 17 and 21 of their last 25, are now one win away from claiming the program's fourth straight America East regular season title. One win in a three-game set at Stony Brook next weekend will give BU the top-seed and host role for the upcoming conference championship.

Binghamton broke the game open early with five runs in the first inning, three in the second and five more in the third.

Junior left fielder Corey Taylor belted two home runs and drove in four and junior right fielder Peter Bregartner went 3-for-4 with a two-run shot and four RBI. Sophomore first baseman Dave Ciocchi went 3-for-4 with two RBI and junior center fielder Henry Dunn went 3-for-6 with a home run and three RBI.

Senior designated hitter Joe Charron produced a seventh-inning single to extend his school-record hit streak to 16 games.

Taylor, the league-leader in home runs and RBI, ripped his 13th and 14th home runs of the season. He hit a two-run shot in the third and added a solo homer in the seventh. It was his 20th multi-RBI game of the season, including 12 games with three or more. Taylor ran his school-record RBI total to 65.

Bregartner stroked a two-run home run in the second for his fifth of the season. Dunn got things started with a solo drive in the first - his 10th of the season.

Freshman third baseman Mike Thompson added two hits and two RBI. Thompson is hitting a team-best .400.

Freshman Jay Lynch (5-4) tossed five innings of six-hit ball to earn the win. Four relievers kept UMBC hitless over the final four innings.

Binghamton plays a doubleheader at Stony Brook next Friday.
