WEST HARTFORD, Conn. – Sophomore third baseman Sarah Benn drove in four runs and freshman pitcher Morgan Bienkowski recorded a complete-game victory as Binghamton (18-28) advanced to the second day of the America East Softball Tournament. The Bearcats lost 7-3 to Stony Brook in the first round at the Hartford Softball Field on Wednesday afternoon but bounced back with a 5-3 win over the host Hawks in an elimination game.
"We were hitting the ball good all day," head coach Michelle Johnston said. "We weren't hitting our spots in the first game but we got the momentum against Hartford. Morgan showed a lot of composure today for us and did a good job."
