B-Mets split double header against Erie
7/13/2012 (Updated 10:49:17 PM)BINGHAMTON -- In honor of Friday the 13th, it was Fright Night at NYSEG Stadium. The scariest part? Binghamton's record at home. The B-Mets are 10 games under .500 at home heading into tonight's double header and looking to turn things around.
In Game 1 The B-Mets send Cory Mazzoni to the mound to help turn around the B-Mets fortunes; and that he did. Mazzoni only surrendered four hits in the 7-inning complete game shutout while also recording one strike out.
The B-Mets bats gave Mazzoni just a big enough cushion in the first with a 2-RBI no out triple by Wilmer Flores to score Juan Lagares and Reese Havens and those two runs would be the difference as the B-Mets take Game 1 by a 2-0 score.
Game 2 was a little different as lefty Mark Cohoon pitched 6 innings surrendering only 1 run on 5 hits and 6 strikeouts.
Allan Dykstra got the bats going early with an RBI single in the first which was followed up by a 3rd inning 2-run home run by Michael Fisher.
But Erie began to claw back in the 4th with an RBI single by Rawley Bishop. But Jefry Marte homered in the bottom half to make it 4-1.
In the 7th, things got interesting. Robert Carson came in to pitch and got two outs early but then got drilled in his pitching arm by Wes Thigpen. Next batter, Jamie Johnson singles to score one, followed immediately by former B-Met Niuman Romero who hit a 2-RBI double as Erie tied it up at 4.
But it only took one extra inning until Jefry Marte came through again with an RBI single in the 8th to score Wilmer Flores as the B-Mets take Game 2 5-4 and sweep the double header.
B-Mets continue the four game set against the Sea Wolves with a 7:05 start time Saturday for Game 3. Be sure to tune in to Fox 40 at ten for full highlights of Saturday's game.
