Bearcats split high scoring doubleheader with Colgate

VESTAL, N.Y. – Freshman outfielder Bridget Hunt homered twice and drove in six runs, highlighting Binghamton’s split against Colgate in a non-conference softball doubleheader on Wednesday afternoon at the Bearcats Sports Complex. The Bearcats (19-19) lost the opener 11-8 to the Raiders (10-25) but bounced back to win game two 12-1 in five innings.

Hunt finished the day 6-for-8, scored five runs and had three extra-base hits. She posted three hits in each game and is now hitting .348 for the season.

Sophomore outfielder Sydney Harbaugh hit a team-best .800 (4-for-5), homered and drove in three runs. She extended her hitting streak to a career-high 12 games and raised her batting average to a team-best .370.

The Bearcats hit .400 as a team, which included five home runs.
In the opener, the Bearcats took an 8-5 lead heading into the top of the seventh inning. Sophomore first baseman Lisa Cadogan hit a solo home run in the bottom of the second inning and Hunt belted a three-run shot one inning later.

Down to their last three outs, however, the Raiders plated six runs to take an 11-8 lead. Tera Vaughn and Eileen Ornusky each had a two-run single and the other two runs came on Bearcat fielding errors. Three of the runs wound up being unearned.

Megan Carnase shut down the Bearcats in the bottom of the seventh inning to raise her record to 2-10. Freshman pitcher Annika Wiesinger took the loss and is now 6-10.

Down 1-0 after a half an inning in the second game, the Bearcats got two-run home runs from both Hunt and sophomore catcher Taylor Chaffee in the bottom of the frame. For Chaffee, it was her team-leading 10th home run of the season.

One inning later, Binghamton scored two more runs. Hunt doubled home Harbaugh and later scored on a RBI single by senior shortstop Jessica Bump.

The Bearcats blew the game open with six more runs in the bottom of the third inning. Harbaugh had the decisive blow with a three-run home run.

Freshman pitcher Shelby Donhauser picked up her first collegiate win by allowing five hits and striking four batters. She issued only one walk and is now 1-1. Gillian Murray, who singled home the Raiders only run, fell to 2-4.

The 12 runs scored by the Bearcats tied their season-high, which they previous set in a 12-11 win over UMass Lowell on April 16.
Senior outfielder Colleen Dougherty finished the day 3-for-5 and scored three times. Chaffee went 2-for-4, drew a pair of walks and now has a team-best 35 RBI.

Up next for Binghamton is a three-game conference series at Maine, which begins with a noon doubleheader on Saturday and concludes with an 11 a.m. single game on Sunday.
