UMBC AND BINGHAMTON SOFTBALL SPLIT DOUBLEHEADER, 0-4, 4-3
Dana Shepherd hit a two-run homerun on Tuesday.
VESTAL, N.Y.— Binghamton and UMBC split a doubleheader on Tuesday at East Gym Field as the Bearcats (10-21, 3-10 AE) won the first game 4-0 while the Retrievers (24-25-1, 6-8 AE) held off a late rally in the nightcap to win 4-3. Game One of the doubleheader counted as an America East Conference game while game two was a non-conference affair. The games were originally scheduled for Wednesday but forecasted weather conditions moved the games to a Tuesday doubleheader.
Quinn's three-run shot came with two outs in the bottom of the fourth inning and broke a scoreless tie. It was her first collegiate home run. Hansen struck out six batters and issued just two walks to record her second shutout of the season. Her record now stands at 5-6. Junior pitcher Amy Sandowl (9-5) took the loss going 6.0 innings allowing four runs on eight hits with four strikeouts.
In the nightcap, junior second baseman Ashlea Underwood hit a two-run single in the third inning to give UMBC a 2-0 advantage. Freshman shortstop Dana Shepherd made it 4-0 with a two-run homer in the fifth inning. It was her fifth home run of the season.
The win went to sophomore Jessica Taylor (5-5) while junior Lauren Reis took the loss, dropping her record to 0-2.
