State College graduate Darian Herncane started in left field for Binghamton on Monday night, as his team beat Penn State by a score of 6-3.
The college senior went 1 for 3 at the plate and scored two runs in the winning effort. He is batting .273 this season and, overall, has started 57 career games.
Herncane was a four-year letterman at State College and graduated with a .333 batting average.
The Nittany Lions mustered just four hits Monday, and none of them were for extra bases. The Bearcats, on the other hand, raced out to a five-run lead through five innings of play — thanks in part to Paul Rufo, who finished 3 of 5 and drove in five runs.
Penn State (11-20) will next take on Bucknell at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at home. Binghamton (13-6) will travel to Ithaca, N.Y., to take on Cornell at 4 p.m. Wednesday.
