LE MOYNE DEFEATS BINGHAMTON IN SLUGFEST TO WIN 13TH CONSECUTIVE GAME

SYRACUSE, N.Y. - In a non-conference game that featured 38 base hits and 37 combined runs, Le Moyne defeated Binghamton at a rain-soaked Dick Rockwell Field. The 21 runs scored by the Dolphins was the team's highest offensive output since April 1, 2006 when the Dolphins defeated Iona, 22-6.

Stephen Crawford (Webster, N.Y. /Eastridge) led the charge for the Dolphins connecting on four hits, two doubles, and one homerun to drive in five runs.  Sean Paino (Wappinger Falls, N.Y. /Roy C Ketcham) started in center field and went 4-5 at the plate with two doubles and two runs batted in. Junior shortstop Andy Parrino (Brockport, NY / Brockport) scored five times and he chipped in with two doubles. 

The Dolphins used a nine-run third inning to jump in front of the Bearcats 9-4. Binghamton would rally to tie the game at 14 on a double from Brendon Hitchcock. Le Moyne would go ahead for good on a two run single from Chris Haynes (Manlius, N.Y. /Fayetteville-Manlius).

The victory pushes the Dolphins active win streak to 13 that is tops in Division I baseball for consecutive wins. Le Moyne returns to action on Wednesday as they host St. Bonaventure in a non-conference doubleheader. The first game is set for 1:00 pm.
