B-Mets come up short in NH

MANCHESTER, NH - The Binghamton Mets were kept in check by three New Hampshire Fisher Cats pitchers in a 5-2 loss on Friday night at Northeast Delta Dental Stadium.

The teams traded runs early. With two outs in the first, Ryan Schimpf laced a 1-1 pitch from Erik Goeddel over the right field wall, giving the Fisher Cats an one-run lead. Binghamton answered back in the top of the second on an RBI groundout from Blake Forsythe knotting the game at one.

New Hampshire broke the tie with a pair of scores in the second. After the first two reached against Goeddel, Adam Loewen stroked an RBI single up the middle and John Tolisano produced a sac fly to center field. Kevin Pillar stretched the lead to three in the third by banging an inside-the-park home run off the center field wall.

The B-Mets struggled to find their offensive groove against New Hampshire starter Austin Bibens-Dirkx. After allowing a single to Richard Lucas in the second, the righty retired 12 of the next 13 B-Mets he faced, including five strikeouts.

Goeddel's night came to an end in the fifth inning after the Fisher Cats loaded the bases on three singles. Shawn Teufel entered and walked Clint Robinson, forcing in a run. The southpaw escaped further damage by inducing Kevin Nolan to bounce into an inning-ending double play. Goeddel finished with five runs allowed on eight hits over 4-1/3 innings of work.

The B-Mets finally broke through against Bibens-Dirkx in the seventh, his final inning. Cory Vaughn smoked a 2-2 pitch over the left field wall for his second homer of the season. The Oregon native completed the inning and capped his night without any further damage.

Vaughn's blast would be Binghamton's final gasp on offense. Fernando Hernandez tossed a perfect eighth inning and Chad Beck shut the door with a scoreless ninth.

Bibens-Dirkx (2-2) allowed two runs on six hits over seven innings in the winning effort, while Goeddel (1-2) suffered his second-straight loss. Beck collected his fourth save.

The B-Mets (8-7) continue their four-game set against the Fisher Cats (8-8) Saturday afternoon at 1:35 PM. RHP Rafael Montero (2-0, 2.16) gets the ball for Binghamton against RHP Marcus Walden (0-2, 5.27). The Horizons Federal Credit Union Pregame Show begins at 1:20 PM on Newsradio 1290 WNBF.
