Bearcats gain second straight split against Vermont
Binghamton loses first game 2-1 before posting 6-1 win in nightcap

For the second consecutive day, Binghamton (10-9, 2-2 AE) split a doubleheader against Vermont (5-11, 3-5 AE) yesterday in Burlington. The Bearcats dropped the opener 2-1 before rallying to win the nightcap 6-1.

In the first game, Binghamton came out swinging as freshman shortstop Rose Barre (Watertown, N.Y./ General Brown) doubled to lead off the game and then scored on a single by sophomore outfielder Marisa DeStasio (Bethlehem, Pa./ Freedom). For the doubleheader, DeStasio went 3-for-6 with two runs and a RBI. The Bearcats, however, would not score again and the Catamounts scored twice in the fourth inning off of sophomore starting pitcher Michelle Weeks (Bunnell, Fla./ Flager Palm Coast) to lock up the win. Weeks (5-2), who struck out a school-record 17 batters the previous day, went six innings, allowing just two hits and striking out five batters but was tagged for the loss.

Binghamton trailed 1-0 heading into the top of the sixth inning of the second game before exploding for three runs in each of the last two innings to pull out the win. Sophomore designated hitter Samantha Ackerman (Hopewell Junction, N.Y./ John Jay) had the clutch hit of the afternoon, belting a three-run triple that cleared the bases in the top of the seventh inning to ice the game. On the mound, junior pitcher Shannon Fleishman (Bath, N.Y./ Haverling) allowed just one run on three hits to even her her record at 2-2.
