box score

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.

Junior Deannie Plemon doubled in senior Stephanie Valencia in the top of the seventh and junior Stephanie DeLuca later singled in Plemon to tie the game at 6-6.

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.
