BOSTON, Mass.-- Senior outfielder Chiya Louie homered twice in the first game and freshman pitcher Megan Currier tossed a two-hit shutout in the nightcap as Boston (21-8, 5-1 AE) swept Binghamton (4-17, 1-5 AE) in an America East Conference doubleheader on Saturday afternoon. The host Terriers won the first game 12-5 and the finale 9-0 in five innings to sweep the three-game weekend series.
In game one, Boston broke open a 1-1 tie with four runs in the top of the third inning. Sophomore designated hitter Megan Coughlin provided the decisive blow with a three-run homer over the center field fence.
Louie, who finished the first game with five RBI, belted a two-run home run in the top of the fourth inning, increasing the lead to 7-2. One inning later, she drilled a three-run home run to right center field, stretching the Boston advantage to 12-2.
The Bearcats got three runs back in the bottom of the fifth inning to close the deficit to within 12-5. Junior third baseman junior third baseman Megan Quinn (Temecula, Calif.) doubled home a pair of runs and sophomore shortstop Sandy Meadows (Buena, Ariz.), who had a pair of hits in the first game, also had a RBI double.
Senior second baseman Mia Bieman (Wingham, Ontario) went 2-for-3 in game one and scored twice.
Quinn and Bieman got the only two Binghamton hits in the second game as Currier allowed just three base runners in five innings. Offensively, Louie was one of four Boston players to drive in a pair of runs.
Binghamton heads to UMBC for a 2 p.m. doubleheader on Wednesday.
