Binghamton softball loses 3-2 to Stony Brook in weekend series finale
STONY BROOK, N.Y. -- Junior outfielder Ashley Westphal scored the game-winning run on a sacrifice fly in the bottom of the seventh inning, leading Stony Brook (23-13, 10-3 AE) to a 3-2 win over Binghamton (5-25, 1-12 AE) in an America East Conference softball game on Sunday afternoon at University Field. With the win, the Seawolves sweep the three-game weekend series.
The game featured a pitcher's duel between sophomore Cyrilla Suker (Vooreheesville, N.Y.) and Stony Brook senior Sarah Hoffman. Suker scattered three runs on five hits and struck out seven batters but Hoffman, who allowed two runs on six hits and struck out a pair of batters, came away with the win.
Binghamton grabbed a 2-0 lead in the top of the second inning. Junior third baseman Megan Quinn (Temecula, Calif.) singled home a run and later scored on a RBI single by sophomore right field Jess Whitaker (Salinas, Calif.).
Freshman shortstop Victoria Kavitsky doubled in the Seawolves first run in the bottom of the third inning. She tied the game in the fourth inning by scoring on a sacrifice fly.
Suker got out of the sixth inning with a runner on third base but the Seawolves loaded the bases on inning later. That set the stage for Westphal's game-winning run.
Whitaker had two of the Bearcats' six hits.
Binghamton hosts UMBC in a single game on Wednesday at 2 p.m.
