VESTAL, N.Y. -- Freshman outfielder Jessica Phillips went deep three times in two games as Binghamton (22-16) split a non-conference doubleheader with St. Bonaventure (10-23) on Wednesday afternoon at the East Gym Field. The Bearcats won the opener 7-5 before dropping the nightcap 8-6.

Phillips was 3-for-4 with two homers, three runs and four RBI in the opener and was 1-for-4 with a solo home run in game two. Phillips now has 13 homers on the season, which is tied with teammate Deannie Plemon for the team high. The duo is currently running away with the school single-season record, which stood at seven entering 2010.

Junior Steph DeLuca singled in Phillips in the first inning of game one to get things going for Binghamton. Sophomore Briana Andrews hit an RBI-double in the second and Phillips launched a two-run homer to extend the lead. BU added another run in the third and Phillips connected for her second two-run homer of shot in the sixth inning.

St. Bonaventure would add three runs in the seventh but the game was in hand for Binghamton.

Andrews batted 2-for-3 in the game with two doubles and two runs scored.

Freshman Rhoda Marsteller earned her tenth win of the season for BU, pitching four innings, giving up one earned run and striking out four.

Phillips continued her day by homering to lead off the bottom of the first inning of game two. BU would add four runs in the third with a two-run home run from DeLuca, an RBI-double by sophomore Meghan Tucker and an RBI-single by junior Kelly Schuldt.

St. Bonaventure responded by exploding for seven runs in the top of the fourth, which was highlighted by a two-RBI pinch-hit by Danielle Frye and a three-RBI hit by Stephanie Narde.

Plemon was 3-for-4 with a home run in the night cap and extending her school-record hitting streak to 17 games.

DeLuca was 3-for-5 on the day with three RBI and Tucker was 3-for-6 with a double.

BU returns to action this weekend with their final America East series against Stony Brook in Vestal.
