Binghamton Baseball bats come to life in 16-3 win

VESTAL, N.Y. - Binghamton baseball (7-13, 2-4 America East) plated 16 runs on 14 hits and scored in five of eight innings to post a 16-3 win over visiting UMBC (6-16, 3-4 AE) in the opening game of a three-game series Saturday afternoon from the Bearcats Sports Complex. The teams will play a doubleheader on Sunday with Game 1 starting at noon.

Freshman catcher Eddie Posavec went 4-for-4 with three RBI and senior second baseman Daniel Nevares and sophomore third baseman David Schanz added three RBI apiece to ignite BUís highest scoring output of the season.

The double-digit scoring was plenty for junior starter Jack Rogalla (W, 3-3), who tossed 7.0 innings and lowered his season ERA to 2.15. Rogalla scattered four hits and two runs on a brisk day when a strong wind was blowing out to right field. He struck out six and walked a pair.

The teams combined for eight walks and six hit batters in the chilly conditions.

With the score tied at 1-1 in the second inning, BU sent nine men to the plate and scored five runs on just three hits. Freshman DH Brendan Skidmore began the onslaught with a leadoff double and a hit batter, walk and fielding error led to three unearned runs. With two out, senior center fielder Bill Bereszniewicz (3-for-4, RBI) delivered an RBI single through the right side and Nevares followed with a two-run single inside the third base bag to make it 6-1.
Two innings later, BU put two more runs on the board when Nevares drew a bases-loaded walk and junior left fielder Jake Thomas hit an RBI grounder.

Up 8-2, the Bearcats broke it open with six runs in the sixth inning. They sent 11 hitters to the plate and took advantage of three hit batters, a walk and three hits. Schanz brought home two runs with a two-out double to left field.

Posavec capped his stellar day with a two-out, two-run double to the wall in right center in the bottom of the eighth.

Sophomore first baseman Reed Gamache went 2-for-3 with an RBI and three runs scored and Skidmore went 2-for-4 with an RBI and two runs scored. Thomas collected two RBI to tie Gamache for the team lead with 12 RBI. Freshman reliever Casey Wenzel worked the final two innings and struck out a pair.
