Binghamton softball drops series opener to Boston 10-2
BOSTON, Mass.-- Junior first baseman Rachel Hebert drove in three runs and sophomore outfielder Shayne Lotito scored three times, leading Boston (19-8, 3-1 AE) to a 10-2 win over Binghamton (4-15, 1-3 AE) in an America East Conference softball game on Friday afternoon. The three-game series, which concludes tomorrow, was scheduled to be played in Binghamton but was moved north due to weather conditions.
Hebert, who went 4-for-4 on the day, started of with a RBI single in the top of the first inning as the Terriers grabbed a 2-0 lead. The Bearcats, however, quickly tied the game in the bottom of the first frame. Junior outfielder Liz Sequeira (Lakewood, Calif) scored on a ground out and senior second baseman Mia Bieman (Wingham, Ontario) hit her team-high third home run of the season.
In the top of the third inning, however, Hebert did most of her damage as Boston scored four runs. She drilled a two-run double to center field and later scored on a single by sophomore designated hitter Nora Miltz.
Lotito, meanwhile, was the catylist in the Terrier's three-run fourth inning. She made the score 5-2 on a RBI single and scored one batter later. Lotito also scored the Bearcats final run of the game in the sixth inning. She led off the with a double and advanced home on a Bearcat fielding error.
With the exception of Bieman's homer, freshman pitcher Megan Currier held the Bearcats hitless and issued just one walk.
The two squads will play a doubleheader at noon on Saturday.
