Bearcats Sweep Hartford In Twinbill
The Binghamton Bearcats swept a doubleheader from the Hartford Hawks yesterday at the Bearcats Sports Complex. In the first game BU trailed 2-0 going into the fifth inning but Daniel Nevares doubled in three runs to give the Bearcats a win. Jake Lambert earned the win in a complete game effort.
In the second game the teams battled into the tenth inning. Maine-Endwell grad Brian Ruby tied the game with a sacrifice fly that plated Jake Thomas. Then Nick Pancerella lashed a hard hit ground ball which handcuffed the third baseman who was unable to make the throw to first base quickly enough for an out. That gave the Bearcats a 6-5 decision.
The sweep puts BU's America East record at 12-10. The Hawks and Bearcats wrap-up the three game series today beginning at noon at the Bearcats Sports Complex.
