VESTAL, N.Y. – Double-elimination tournaments enable second chances, and Maine softball is clinging to just that.
The Black Bears fell to No. 5 Binghamton in the opening game of the America East tournament Wednesday 3-1, but managed to knock off No. 6 UMBC 5-3 after third baseman Alyssa Derrick hit her second home run of the day. Maine will play against a team to be determined Thursday with its season on the line once more.
