Binghamton edges Stony Brook in another Classic

On Saturday night, Binghamton coming out of the loser’s bracket grabbed a 4-3 win in a hotly contested victory over Stony Brook that ended up finishing at 11:39 pm forcing a winner take all game on Sunday afternoon at noon.

Could the the two teams compete with Saturday night’s classic? I doubted it as I made the trip to the stadium. I was totally wrong as both teams came out and played some of the most passionate baseball you could ever see on Sunday in Lowell, Massachusetts.  Continue reading

Binghamton’s Ostner tosses gem to advance Bearcats

Binghamton’s Greg Ostner pitched a complete game shutout to advance the Bearcats to the America East Championship Round where they will take on Stony Brook later this afternoon. Ostner scattered six hits allowing only one walk while striking out four batters. The Hawks could never get their offense together with many quick at-bats.

The Bearcats offense though came flying out of the gates scoring four runs before an out was recorded against Hartford’s Kyle Gauthier. They finished the inning with five runs knocking out Gauthier after only an inning of work. Continue reading

Long Beach Shuts Down Cal Poly for Series Win

LONG BEACH, Calif. — With two outs in the first inning, Long Beach State first baseman Ino Patron hit a hard but seemingly innocuous grounder to first base. But the ball squirted past Tim Wise, allowing Patron to reach. Back-to-back base hits by Richard Prigatano and Michael Hill plated Patron with an unearned run.

That was it.

For the next eight innings, neither No. 2 Cal Poly nor the Dirtbags (20-21, 7-5) could scratch across a run as Long Beach State took a 1-0 victory and the biggest series win in Troy Buckley’s head coaching tenure.

Frye Leads Dirtbags to Upset of No. 2 Cal Poly

LONG BEACH, Calif. — All good things must come to an end.

And Josh Frye finally had his scoreless streak snapped at 30.2 innings pitched, but by the time Cal Poly (36-6, 12-2) got to the 6-foot-7 senior Saturday afternoon at Blair Field, Long Beach State already had the game in hand.

The Dirtbags (19-21, 6-5) scored six runs (only three earned runs) off starter Justin Calomeni to chase him from the game in the fourth inning. And when Frye did allow two runs to score, Long Beach immediately answered with a run in the bottom of the sixth, taking a 7-2 victory to even the series with the Mustangs.

Frye needed just 100 pitches over eight innings to earn his fourth win. He allowed six hits and two runs (one earned) while tying his career high with six strikeouts.

Fullerton Snaps 6-Game Losing Streak With Walk-Off

FULLERTON, Calif. — Rain was pouring down, drenching everything at Goodwin Field Friday night.

Cal State Fullerton’s players were doing the dreaded task of putting the tarp on the field. Yet, there was nothing but smiles on the Titans’ faces.

After a rough two weeks that featured a pair of Big West series losses, a 16-inning loss at Fresno State on Wednesday and their head coach being under an administrative investigation, the Titans finally had something to smile about.

For 21.1 straight innings, Cal State Fullerton (19-17, 4-6) had been held scoreless. But with two outs and a pair of runners on base, Tanner Pinkston grounded one up the middle and Jared Deacon raced home from second base to give the Titans a 1-0 win over Hawai’i (15-23, 3-10)  in 10 innings.

Strahan Career-High Not Enough for USC Against Utah

The Utes struck out 17 times as a team and couldn’t muster a single hit for eighth consecutive innings, but somehow Utah (11-19, 2-11) was able to pull out a 3-2 victory over USC (15-17, 4-9) to open the series at Dedeaux Field Friday night. Continue reading
