Bearcats Baseball falls late to Boston College 5-3

CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. - Binghamton baseball (20-22) registered 11 hits and built an early 3-1 lead before host Boston College (21-30) rallied to deal the Bearcats a 5-3 loss Sunday afternoon at Pellagrini Diamond.

The Bearcats collected at least one hit in all but one inning but were held scoreless over the final six frames. The Eagles rallied with a run in the sixth, two in the seventh and one in the eighth to gain a split of the two-game weekend series.

Binghamton opened the scoring in the top of the second inning with a run on three singles - two after two were out. Sophomore third baseman Reed Gamache singled with one out and senior shortstop John Howell added a two-out single. Freshman catcher Eddie Posavec then plated Gamache with an RBI infield single.
Boston College tied it in the bottom of second on a walk, single, passed ball and sacrifice fly.

In the third, BU reclaimed the lead when junior left fielder Jake Thomas hit a two-out single to right field and senior first baseman Shaun McGraw smacked a two-run home run over the left field wall, staking the Bearcats to a 3-1 lead. It was McGraw’s second home run in as many days and third of the season.

But in the sixth, the Eagles used a walk, double and RBI groundout to pull within 3-2. The hosts then took the lead with two runs in the seventh, thanks to three walks, a single and a double. Boston College added the final run in the eighth on three singles (two infield).

The Bearcats brought the tying run to the plate in the ninth after Howell hit a one-out single. But a 5-4-3 double play ended the game.

McGraw padded his RBI count with the two runs driven in. Including his three in Saturday’s game, McGraw now has 20 RBI in the last 17 games. Howell went 3-for-4 and both Thomas and senior center fielder Bill Bereszniewicz had two hits apiece.

Sophomore starter Jake Cryts didn’t allow an earned run in 5.0 innings of work. Cryts gave up just three hits, struck out two and walked one. Three subsequent relievers finished out the game with freshman Casey Wenzel absorbing the loss.

Binghamton outhit BC 11-9.

The Bearcats wrap up the regular season with a three-game series at Albany on Friday-Saturday. Binghamton (10-10) and Maine (8-10) are jockeying for the No. 3 and 4 seeds for the upcoming America East tournament.
