Softball splits pair of games on first day of Maryland Tournament
COLLEGE PARK, Md.--- Junior second baseman Nicole Vitello (Olean, N.Y.) went 2-for-6 with three RBI and freshman pitcher Patty Egan (Sierra, Vista, Ariz.) notched her first career win, highlighting Binghamton's first day at the Maryland Softball Tournament on Saturday. The Bearcats (2-5) lost to the host Terrapins (10-8) 5-3 in the first game before defeating Columbia (10-8) 3-2 in the nightcap.
Vitello had a RBI single in the first game but had a pivotal two-run single in the first inning of the second game. Egan not only pitched a complete game in the nightcap but also drove home what would prove to be the game-winning run on a bunt single in the bottom of the sixth inning. On the mound, she allowed just two runs on five hits and struck out a pair of batters to even her record at 1-1 on the season.
Binghamton faces Mt. St. Mary's on Sunday at 10 a.m. With a win, the Bearcats would play Maryland in the championship game at 4 p.m. Should they lose, the Bearcats would play either Mt. St. Mary's or Columbia in the consolation game at 2 p.m.
Game 1: Maryland 5, Binghamton 3
Game 2: Binghamton 3, Columbia 2
