Brian Moran recorded an RBI single on Thursday.
VESTAL, N.Y. - Binghamton (14-10-1, 3-1 AE) exploded for eight runs in the third inning en route to an 13-5 win over visiting UMBC (10-19, 0-4 AE) Thursday afternoon at Varsity Field. The loss is the Retrievers seventh straight and fourth consecutive conference loss.
Hitchcock, mired in a 3-for-19 slump entering the game, went 4-for-4 with four RBI. He added RBI singles in the seventh and eighth innings.
Sophomore pitcher Scott Diamond picked up his team-best fourth win of the season (4-3) for the Bearcats. Diamond scattered seven hits and allowed four earned runs in the complete-game win.
UMBC was led by a 2-for-5 performance from Joe Fowler. Fowler, after seeing his 17-game hit streak end last Tuesday night, doubled in the first inning and scored as Zach Clark reached on a fielding error.
Tim Comiskey started for UMBC, going 3.0 innings and allowing nine runs on five hits with five walks. Comiskey falls to 1-4 on the year. Matt Bucholz, Bo Sauter and Mike Fitzpatrick all pitched in relief.
The teams are scheduled to play a doubleheader Friday beginning at noon.
The game was delayed 46 minutes in the bottom of the fourth inning due to lightening in the area.
