Magic Pill does the trick against Richmond

BINGHAMTON, NY –Tyler Pill fired eight scoreless innings and backed his own effort with three hits, including a home run, to lead the Binghamton Mets past the Richmond Flying Squirrels, 6-0, on Thursday night at NYSEG Stadium. Pill drove in four runs and finished a triple shy of the cycle in his longest career outing. The victory, Binghamton’s ninth in the last ten games, secured a three-game series sweep.

On a night the B-Mets welcomed five newcomers, Pill stole the show. After tossing three blank innings, Pill put Binghamton on the board in the third. He launched a solo home run over the right-field wall, the first pitcher to go deep for the B-Mets since Justin Brunette in 2001.

The B-Mets doubled their lead in the fourth. Brandon Nimmo worked a one-out walk and came around to score on an RBI double by Dustin Lawley to extend the lead to 2-0.

The score stayed that way until the sixth when the B-Mets blew the game open against reliever Phil McCormick. Lawley, T.J. Rivera, and Dilson Herrera each singled to load the bases with nobody out for Pill. The starter smacked a double down the right-field line to score all three runners put the B-Mets on top 5-0. Kyle Johnson then doubled to plate Pill for a 6-0 advantage.

That would be more than enough for Pill (5-5). He allowed just four hits and retired twelve straight batters at one point. He fanned struck out a season-high nine in his fifth straight win. Adam Kolarek pitched a scoreless ninth to nail down the win. On the other side, Crick (4-3) gave up two runs in 4.2 innings and was tagged with the loss.

The B-Mets (41-31) hit the road to take on Bowie on Friday at 6:35. RHP Hansel Robles takes the mound for Binghamton opposite LHP Jake Pettit.
