Boston, Mass. -- For the second time in as many days, Boston University (26-18, 10-2 AE) scored a walk-off run with two outs in the bottom of the seventh inning to defeat Binghamton (21-15, 6-9 AE) in America East softball action on Sunday afternoon. Boston won 7-6 and completed the three-game series sweep.
After Binghamton rallied from a 6-2 deficit to tie the game at 6-6 in the top of the seventh, Boston's April Setterlund reached base on a throwing error by a Binghamton infielder to allow the winning run to cross the plate.
Earlier in the fifth inning with BU trailing 6-2, sophomore Meghan Tucker's double sparked another two-run inning. Plemon was walked with the bases loaded to draw an RBI and DeLuca picked up a RBI on an infield groundout.
Boston jumped out to a 4-0 lead in the game, but Binghamton cut into the lead on a two-run DeLuca homer in the fourth inning.
DeLuca was 2-for-4 with four RBI, Plemon was 1-for-2 with two RBI and Valencia was 3-for-4 with two runs scored. Plemon increased her school-record hitting streak to 15 games.
Boston's Christina Valdes was 3-for-4.
Binghamton was plagued by five errors in the game, a season-high.
Binghamton will return to action at home on Wednesday against St. Bonaventure before playing their final America East series against Stony Brook in Vestal next weekend.
