Bearcats fall in opener, face elimination Friday

STONY BROOK, NY – Alexa Toole and Charlene Castro each clubbed a two-run home run, leading Albany (30-10) to an 8-7 win over Binghamton (21-24) in an America East Tournament first-round game at University Field on Thursday afternoon. The Bearcats now face UMBC at 1:30 p.m. on Friday in an elimination game while the Great Danes move into the winners’ bracket to meet Stony Brook at 11 a.m. The Seawolves defeated the Retrievers 16-1 in five innings.

The Bearcats nearly came back from an 8-4 deficit with two outs in the top of the seventh inning. Freshman outfielder Bridget Hunt, who finished the game 4-for-4 with four RBI, tripled home a pair of runs. She was singled home one batter latter by freshman third baseman Crysti Eichner. The game ended one batter later on a line out.  Hunt becomes the first player in school history to hit for the cylce.

With the score tied at 1-1 in the bottom of the third inning, the Great Danes clubbed three home runs and scored five times. Kelly Costello led off the frame with a home run while Toole and Castro followed with their two-run shots.

Senior second baseman Jessica Bump trimmed the deficit to 6-3 with a two-run home run in the top of the fifth inning. One inning later, freshman outfielder Bridget Hunt doubled home sophomore first baseman Lisa Cadogan.

The Great Danes tacked on a pair of runs in the bottom of the sixth inning. Vicky McFarland and Maggie Cocks both had RBI singles.

Hunt, who also had a solo home run in the top of the second inning, is the first Binghamton player to record a four-hit game since current junior Caytlin Friis and current senior Mikala King both did so against Delaware on Feb. 17, 2012.

Brittany MacFawn improved to 17-5 while senior pitcher Demi Laney fell to 13-11 with the loss.
