B-Mets take series finale from Altoona with 7-4 win

ALTOONA, PA - The Binghamton Mets racked up eleven hits and secured their sixth straight winning series with a 7-4 victory over the Altoona Curve on Sunday night at Peoples Natural Gas Field. Darrell Ceciliani sparked the offense with three runs scored, leading Binghamton to their third straight win and 16th in their last 19 games.

Binghamton busted out the bats in the second. After Ceciliani and Jayce Boyd started the rally with consecutive one-out singles, Travis Taijeron ripped an RBI double down the third-base line. Kai Gronauer followed with a run-producing ground out and Matt Bowman helped his own cause by blooping an RBI single behind short. Dilson Herrera capped the four-run frame by threading another RBI single up the middle.

The B-Mets struck again in the third. Ceciliani walked and swiped second before Boyd brought him home with a single to right. Taijeron followed with an RBI double. His hit, a carbon copy of his two-bagger inside the third-base line in the second, kicked Binghamton's lead to six runs.

Altoona cashed in on a B-Met fielding mistake to get on the board in the third. With one out, Alen Hanson's chopper to first eluded Boyd for an error. Two batters later, Matt Curry sliced a double down the left-field line chasing Hanson home with the Curve's first run.

Binghamton struck back with another tally in the fifth against reliever Yao-Hsun Yang. Yet again, Ceciliani and Boyd started the rally with singles. Gronauer kicked Binghamton's advantage to six runs by lacing an RBI single to left.

The Curve scratched out one last run against Bowman in the sixth. Following a lead off single by Willy Garcia, Stetson Allie pulled an RBI double down the left-field line. Bowman bounced back by retiring six of the next seven batters he faced, capping his night with a scoreless seventh inning.

Jack Leathersich struck out the side in order in the eighth. In the ninth, Ryan allowed two runs on a pair of hits and a walk before fanning Matt Curry to secure the victory.

Bowman (6-5) struck out nine batters while holding the Curve hitless in nine at-bats with runners in scoring position. The righty stranded seven runners en route to his third win in his last four starts. Ludwig (0-3) was tagged for six runs on seven hits over three innings in the loss.

The B-Mets (48-33)continue their longest road trip of the season by opening a four-game series against the New Britain Rock Cats on Monday night at 7:05 PM. RHP Rainy Lara toes the rubber against LHP Taylor Rogers.
