Freshman pitcher Sarah Miller threw a complete game to earn the win over Tennessee Tech to give the Bearcats their second victory of the weekend. Miller had a good weekend in her debut as a Bearcat. She also ripped a walk-off grand slam home run to power Binghamton to a 9-8 win over Campbell University on February 14.
