Game 1 Box Score

Game 2 Box Score

VESTAL, N.Y. -- Sophomore infielder Jessica Chellis (Tunkhannock, Pa.) went 4-for-6 with a home run and four RBI, leading Binghamton (22-21, 10-10 AE) to a sweep of visiting Vermont (5-33, 3-17 AE) in an America East softball doubleheader today. The Bearcats won the opener 5-1 and took the nightcap 6-1.

With the two wins, Binghamton sweeps the four-game weekend series from the Catamounts. On Saturday, the Bearcats won the first two games of the series, 5-2 and 2-1.

In the opener, senior outfielder Kim Gruber (Vestal) doubled in a run in the first inning and sophomore outfielder Leigh Ann Savidge (Binghamton) singled home a run in the fourth inning, giving the Bearcats a 2-0 edge. In the fifth inning, Binghamton blew the game open. Jen Richardson (Wellsville) homered to lead off the inning to make the score 3-0. After Gruber tripled two batters later, Chellis followed with a two-run home run to all but seal the win.

Senior pitcher Margaret Yerdon (Lacona) pitched a complete game for her eighth win of the season. She allowed one run on six hits, struck out four batters and surrendered just one walk.

In the nightcap, the Catamounts took the lead in the top of the third inning when outfielder Christine Toomey scored on a wild pitch. In the bottom of the fifth inning, however, Binghamton exploded for five runs on six hits. Chellis, Richardson and Gruber keyed the inning with RBI singles. Chellis then knocked in the final run of the game in the bottom of the fifth inning on another RBI single.

Junior pitcher Mary Karen Wheat (Brockport) pitched a complete game, allowing one run on four hits and striking out four batters.
