Binghamton University sports recap, 4/18/17

BINGHAMTON, N.Y. - Starting tonight with some Bearcats softball.

After getting the 3-2 win against Buffalo, the Bearcats took the field for the second game of the doubleheader, looking for the sweep.

Bottom of the 6th, Cats down 2-1, and Bridget Hunt with the bunt, it rolls back-and -forth between foul and fair, some confusion, but the ball is in play, and Hunt is at 1st celebrating.

Crysti Eichner up at the plate, runners on 3rd and 2nd, and she rips one to left field, its caught, the throw to home, and Steph Ragusa with the slide! Ball is loose, and Hunt takes advantage.  Bearcats take the lead, 3-2.

Jill Bovitt at the plate, and another great bunt by Binghamton. Bases loaded for the Bearcats.

Gabbi Bracchi now launches one into center field and Leandra Drew with the diving catch, but she drops it! Maniccia crosses the plate, followed by Bovitt and the Cats now lead 6-2. 

Talk about a comeback! The score would remain, and the Bearcats get the sweep!


The Binghamton Baseball team is on fire. 

Not only are the Bearcats sitting in first place in the America East, but they are continuing to rack in the awards. 

Junior Jacob Wloczewski has been named the America East Pitcher of the Week for his performance against Albany last week.

During the second game of the Albany double header, Wloczewski pitched a complete-game shutout for the 3-0 win.

He allowed just three hits and no walks while striking out seven. 

On top of that, Wloczewski did not allow a single runner to reach scoring position.

The Bearcats are back in action on Saturday, with a double header against the University of Maine.  First game starts at noon.
