Binghamton releases 2015 Schedule

VESTAL, N.Y. – Two-time defending America East champion Binghamton baseball will open its 2015 season at SEC member Auburn. The Bearcats will start their 55-game spring slate with the three-game set on February 13-15 in Alabama.

The Auburn series kicks off six consecutive weeks of road travel for BU, which will play its first 25 games away from home before hosting America East foe UMass Lowell on April 4-5. Binghamton plays a three-game series at CAA power William & Mary on February 20-22 – the first of three straight weekend trips to the state of Virginia. The Tribe won 34 games before falling in the conference championship game last spring.

Three-game sets at Radford and VMI precede BU’s conference-opening series at Stony Brook on March 14-15.

“Our first four weekends of non-conference play are both exciting and quite challenging,” 23th-year head coach Tim Sinicki said. “Quality opponents from the SEC, Big South, Colonial and Southern Conference will certainly give us a chance to see where we are as a team heading into America East Conference play.” Continue reading

West Hartford, Conn. – Hartford baseball coach Justin Blood announced a 53-game schedule for his fourth season at the helm of the Hawks in 2015. The schedule includes 44 dates, highlighted by eight games against NCAA Tournament teams from 2014.

“This is a challenging schedule, but one that we feel we are ready for,” said Blood. “The Duke, Virginia and BYU trips will give us an early idea of where we stand. I’m also excited about the opportunity to face off against Boston College and Bryant in non-conference series. It should be a very competitive year in the America East as well. Most importantly we have to stay focused on the next four months of class work, training and skill development.” Continue reading

2014 Stillwater Regional Day 1 Recap

FROM CBD NEWS SOURCE

Cal State Fullerton 5 Nebraska 1

STILLWATER, Okla. – For six innings, the Cal State Fullerton offense was dormant in their opening game of their Regional opener. But J.D. Davis jolted it back to life with a grand slam in the eighth inning which proved to be the difference as the Titans upended No. 19 Nebraska 5-1 Friday afternoon at Allie P. Reynolds Stadium.

Davis went 2-for-4 for the Titans (33-22), driving in four runs and extending his hitting streak to 13 games in the process. He was the only Titans player to collect multiple hits against the Cornhuskers (40-20) pitching staff but it proved to be enough. It was also the Titans eighth straight win. Continue reading

2014 Stillwater (OK) NCAA Regional Preview

One of the toughest regionals will take place at Oklahoma State’s Allie P. Reynolds Stadium as three teams look set to vie for the right to head to Corvallis to face off with No. 1 overall seed Oregon State, should the Beavers advance from their regional.

Big 12 regular season champion Oklahoma State welcomes former conference rival Nebraska as well as the Big West’s premier program in Cal State Fullerton. America East champion Binghamton rounds out the regional with a roster that keeps battling despite a number of injuries.

Fullerton is no stranger to playing in South Central — either South Central LA (when visiting USC) or the South Central United States. While they haven’t played Oklahoma State, the Titans have a familiarity with the region, traveling to Baylor, Wichita State, Texas A&M and Oral Roberts in the past two years. They also played Nebraska and pitching coach Ted Silva ( a former Fullerton pitcher) four times last year, sweeping all four games.

Familiarity with the area may help the Titans’ routine, but it won’t help them once they get between the painted lines. So how does the Stillwater (OK) Regional shape up? Continue reading
