Binghamton outlasted Siena 10-9 Tuesday in Loudonville in a game that was played through steady rain for the last two hours. Mike Allen had two hits and an RBI for the Saints.
Binghamton (17-20) jumped out to a 2-0 lead in its first at bat, chasing Siena (16-25) starter Jim Miendl in the first inning. Siena responded by scoring in its first four at bats, grabbing a 7-4 lead after four innings.
That's when the rain started, and momentum shifted back to the Bearcats.
Binghamton tied the game with three runs in the fifth, and took the lead for good with three more in the sixth. Siena scored twice in the seventh to pull within the final margin.
Anthony Grillini pitched three innings of one-hit relief to pick up the win for Binghamton. Tsuyoshi Horibata pitched the final three innings to pick up the save, allowing just two hits and one earned run.
Siena's pitching was not effective outside regular relievers Matt Quintana and Kyano Cummings who each made scoreless appearances late in the game.
All nine Binghamton starters hit safely, and nine hitter Eddie Posavec was 3-for-5 with a pair of runs scored.
Siena lost for just the third time in its last 14 games.
The Saints travel to face Dartmouth Wednesday at 3 p.m.
