BINGHAMTON 9, HARTFORD 2
Hartford wasted no time getting back on the board, taking a 1-0 lead in the first set. Donnie Cohoon scored by the right side before stealing second base to put a runner in scoring position. With two withdrawals, Tremayne Cobb Jr. stepped up, ripping a single to center field, tackling Cohoon and giving the Hawks the lead. However, Binghamton responded with four runs late in the second, taking a 4-1 lead. Led 6-1 at the start of the fourth, the Hawks managed to pull one off. With Derek Tenney on the third and Devin Kellogg on the first, Hartford executed a perfect double steal, tackling Tenney and closing the gap to 6-2. The deficit would prove too great, however, as Binghamton won Game 2, 9-2.
