Siena fought right back in the bottom of the first by scoring two runs on the strength of a Weingart single to tie the game at 2-2.

Binghamton reclaimed the lead at 3-2 in the second when junior first baseman Stephanie Kolodziejski connected on her first home run of the year, a solo shot to left field.

Siena then added two runs on four hits in the third inning to and then put the game away with four runs in the sixth. The sixth inning was punctuated by a three-run home run by Weingart to left.
