B-Mets fall to Trenton 7-3 to split series

BINGHAMTON, NY - The Binghamton Mets were stung by a four run sixth inning in a 7-3 loss to the Trenton Thunder on Sunday afternoon at Arm & Hammer Park. Jayce Boyd went 2-for-4 with a run and an RBI, while Jake Cave managed a 3-for-4 performance and drove in three runs for the Thunder. The teams split the four-game series.

Binghamton snagged the first lead of the game in the first inning against Manny Banuelos. Travis Taijeron walked for the first B-Met baserunner of the game. He moved to second when Kai Gronauer reached on an error by the pitcher Banuelos. Each runner advanced one more bag on a wild pitch. Rylan Sandoval came through with an RBI ground out to score Taijeron and put Binghamton on top 1-0

Trenton came right back in the bottom of the inning against Rainy Lara. With one out, Jake Cave hit his first home run of the season over to right-center field to tie the game at one.

The Thunder took their first lead of the game in the fifth. Casey Stevenson hit the first pitch he saw inside the foul pole down the right-field line for a home run. Back-to-back singles by Ali Castillo and Cave put runners on the corners with nobody out. Gamel then hit a sacrifice fly to left to bring home a run and put the Thunder on top 3-1.

Binghamton got a run back in the sixth against Danny Burawa. T.J. Rivera smacked a one-out single and moved to second on a passed ball. Jayce Boyd came through with a single of his own to plate Rivera to cut the deficit to one, 3-2.

Trenton blew the game open in the sixth. Mason Williams tallied a base knock with one out. Two batters later Jose Toussen doubled the runner home. A Stevenson single brought Toussen across the plate. A Castillo hit-by-pitch put two on for Cave. He hit his third triple in the past two games to bring home both runners and put the Thunder on top 7-2.

Binghamton got one run back in the ninth against Francisco Rondon. Boyd started the rally with a single and moved to third on a Taijeron two-bagger. Gronauer plated Boyd with a single, but Rondon retired the final two batters to close out the victory.

Rainy Lara (5-4) gave up 11 hits and seven runs in 5-2/3 frames. Jairo Heredia (3-1) tossed a scoreless inning. Chase Huchingson and Adam Kolarek shutout Trenton over the final 2-1/3 innings to close out the game. Manny Banuelos went four innings for Trenton and gave up just one unearned run.

The B-Mets (63-44) head back home to start a series against the New Hampshire Fisher Cats at 6:35 PM on Monday. LHP Steven Matz takes the hill for Binghamton opposite a pitcher to be announced for New Hampshire.
