UAlbany Baseball Locks 3rd Seed in America East Tournament
Albany, NY - Entering Sunday's game with Binghamton, both UAlbany and the Bearcats knew they would be facing each other in the opening round tournament of the America East tournament in just a couple days. What they didn't know is who would get the No. 2 seed and who would be the No. 3 seed.
The outcome - Binghamton secured the No. 2 seed after defeating the Great Danes convincingly 10-3 at Varsity Field in the team’s regular season finale. Jake Thomas sparked the Bearcats with a pair of two-run home runs in the first and third innings.
Saturday was Senior Day for the Great Danes in which the team's eight seniors, Luke Burns, Austin Chase, Brian Gauthier, Kasceim Graham, Nolan Gaige, Greg Muller, Jeff Welsh, and Derek Zielinski were honored in a pregame ceremony.
Up next for the Great Danes is a trek to Lowell, Mass. to compete in the America East Conference Tournament for the fifth straight season. UAlbany will face Binghamton at 8:00p.m. Wednesday at LeLacheur Park. The game will follow the 4pm contest between No. 1 Maine and No. 4 Stony Brook.
