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

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
