Bearcats swept by Orange bats

SYRACUSE, N.Y. – Binghamton (12-14) was swept by Syracuse (15-18) in a non-conference softball doubleheader on Tuesday afternoon at the SU Softball Stadium. The Orange, who has gone 6-7 this year against fellow ACC schools, won the opener 8-0 and the nightcap 9-6.

The Bearcats were held to just two hits until midway through the second game. They then scored six runs over the final four innings and finished the afternoon with a .298 batting average.
“What we did in the second game with our bats is what we have been looking for all year,” head coach Michelle Burrell said. “We got some momentum at the plate took off with it.  That is something our team can do on a consistent basis and hopefully they can use that going into next week.”

In the opener, however, Binghamton managed just a pair of hits off Sydney O’Hara. At the plate, the Orange got a three-run home run by Danielle Chitkowski in the first inning and a two-run shot by Alyssa Dewes in the bottom of the fourth inning.

O’Hara improved her record to 11-7 while senior pitcher Demi Laney fell to 10-6.

The Orange continued their offensive fireworks in the second inning of the nightcap. Chitkowski drilled another three-run home run and Dewes singled home another run as Syracuse went up 5-0.

In the top of the fourth inning, however, the Bearcats stormed back to tie the game at 5-5. Sophomore first baseman Lisa Cadogan belted a solo home run during the frame and senior designated hitter Lisa Cutrona tied the game with a two-run homer.

Syracuse took the lead right back in the bottom of the fourth inning as it scored a pair of runs on a fielding error.  In the top of the fifth inning, however, sophomore catcher Taylor Chaffee singled home a run, trimming the deficit to 7-6.

The Orange got a pair of insurance runs in the bottom of the sixth inning. Dewes led off the frame with a home run.

Christina Clermont raised her record to 2-4 while Laney was tagged with the loss again in the second game.

Junior shortstop Caytlin Friis went 3-for-3 in the second game. She finished 3-for-5 for the day. Senior outfielder Colleen Dougherty was 3-for-6 (.500) and scored a pair of runs.

Up next for Binghamton is a non-conference doubleheader at Fordham on Sunday at 4 p.m.
