B-Mets bats bounce back in Akron

AKRON, OH  Darin Gorski baffled the Akron Aeros for seven innings and the Binghamton Mets unleashed a 13-hit attack in a 10-2 victory on Saturday night at Canal Park. Cory Vaughn and Xorge Carrillo each drove in three runs to aid the B-Mets in their 82nd win of the season, matching a franchise record.

Gorski dominated through the first seven innings of the contest, facing just one over the minimum. The southpaw surrendered a one-out single to Tyler Holt in the second and retired 17 straight Aeros. He struck out seven along the way and tossed ten pitches or fewer in four different innings, needing just 70 in total to get through seven shutout frames.

Binghamton gave Gorski a three-run lead before he even took the hill. They jumped on Major League rehabber Brett Myers and took advantage of Akrons shaky defense in the first. The troubles started early for Akron as second baseman Ronny Rodriguez booted the first ball in play, allowing Danny Muno to reach safely. After Josh Rodriguez punched a single to right, Vaughn smoked a single up the middle, giving the B-Mets a 1-0 lead.

A single by Allan Dykstra loaded the bases for Travis Taijeron, who doubled Binghamtons lead with a groundout to first. Vaughn came home with the B-Mets third run of the inning when shortstop Jose Ramirez threw away Carrillos grounder. Reliever Enosil Tejeda replaced Myers after the second misplay and induced Wilfredo Tovar to bounce into a double play to end the frame.

The B-Mets tacked on another run in the second against Will Roberts. Following a walk to Muno, Rodriguez poked a triple into the right-field corner. The three-bagger, his first since May 30, gave Binghamton a 4-0 advantage.

Binghamton blew the game open with a six-run sixth inning. The visitors sent ten men to the plate, pounded out ten hits and stretched their lead to ten. The B-Mets opened the frame with four consecutive singles and highlighted the frame with a pair of two-run singles from Vaughn and Carrillo.

Gorskis magnificent run came to an end in the eighth when he walked Holt to start the inning. After a single and a two-out walk, Jose Ramirez ended Gorskis night by lining a two-run single to left field.

Hamilton Bennett took over and fanned Ronny Rodriguez to end the inning and returned with a perfect ninth inning, securing Binghamtons first win of the series.

Gorksi (5-1) allowed two runs on three hits and two walks over 7-2/3 innings in the win. Myers (1-2) was charged for three runs (one earned) and threw just 16 pitches to six batters in the loss. Roberts allowed seven runs on seven hits over 4-2/3 innings and did not factor into the decision.
