Eagles cruise past Cougars

BEEKMANTOWN — Brandon Buksa and Quenton Barber rapped out four hits each in a 19-hit attack Thursday afternoon as Beekmantown continued its winning ways with a 16-3 victory over Northeastern Clinton in Champlain Valley Athletic Conference baseball.

Buksa had a triple and Barber two doubles.

Brantley Marion and Brandon Provost chipped in with three hits apiece, with Marion getting a triple and double. Tanner Williams added a two-run single.

Zach Bingel went six innings for the pitching win as he allowed four hits, did not walk anyone and struck out four.

“Bingel did a great job on the mound for us today,” Beekmantown coach Eric Bell said. “He hit his spots all game and kept the hitters off-balance.

“We had many players with good at-bats today. Eight different players had at least one hit.”

Mason Letourneau took the pitching loss, and Reece Tucker’s double was one of the five hits for the Cougars.
