Vermont 5, Binghamton 2
Binghamton 5, Vermont 4 (suspended in top of 7th)

BURLINGTON, Vt..--Binghamton baseball (19-18, 7-8 America East) lost the opening game of a scheduled twinbill at Vermont (14-24, 7-9 AE) on Saturday, 5-2. Game two was suspended due to rain with the Bearcats ahead, 5-4 and still batting with one out in the top of the seventh inning. The game will be resumed at 11 a.m. on Sunday before the teams conclude their three-game set with the scheduled nine-inning game.

In the opener, BU managed just six hits and stranded 12 baserunners and the Catamounts plated four runs in the first three innings to take control. Junior center fielder Whitney Powell (Virginia Beach, Va.) went 2-for-3 - the lone Bearcat with more than one hit. Junior starter David Lind (San Mateo, Calif.) allowed just two earned runs in six innings, but took the loss. Lind struck out five and scattered eight hits.

Vermont starter Chris Blazek struck out eight and allowed only three hits in 7.0 innings. The Catamounts scored twice in the first and third innings and added one more in the eighth.

In game two, BU trailed 4-3 facing its final at-bat before rallying to take the lead. Binghamton will have a runner on first base and one out when the game resumes Sunday morning.

Binghamton currently trails Stony Brook (9-8) for the fourth and final America East playoff spot. The Bearcats conclude their regular-season with a three-game series at Stony Brook next weekend.
