Oh No Ynoa! B-Mets fall to Bowie 9-4

BOWIE, MD – The Bowie Baysox used a pair of four-run innings to defeat the Binghamton Mets, 9-4, on Wednesday night at Prince George’s Stadium. Bowie shelled B-Met starter Gabriel Ynoa for a career-high eight runs on seven hits, including three doubles and a home run.

The Baysox posted their first four-run inning in the second against Ynoa. With two aboard, David Freitas pulled an RBI double into left. Sharlon Schoop followed with a run-producing groundout and Jason Esposito capped the inning by blasting a two-run homer to left-center.

Binghamton answered right back in their next turn at the plate. Following a run-producing wild pitch by Tim Berry, Michael Conforto laced an RBI double into the left-field alley. Two batters later, Josh Rodriguez rocketed a two-run triple, his second in as many nights, off the center-field fence, tying the game at four.

The momentum was short-lived as Bowie compiled their second four-run inning in the bottom of the frame. The first five Baysox reached safely against Ynoa. Trey Mancini pushed Bowie back in front with a two-run double down the third-base line and Garabez Rosa capped the frame with a two-run single up the middle.

Berry settled down after his bumpy third and closed his night with three scoreless innings. The southpaw surrendered just one hit, kept the B-Mets from reaching third and blanked the visitors from the fourth through the sixth.

Ynoa was chased after three innings, his shortest career outing as a B-Met, and the B-Mets bullpen was forced to carry the game to the finish. Matt Koch tossed two scoreless frames and Adam Kolarek struck out the side in the sixth. Julian Hilario was touched for a run in the eighth before Dario Alvarez stranded two in a blank eighth.

Bowie reliever Ashur Tolliver took over from Berry and fanned a pair of B-Mets over two scoreless innings before Dennis Torres closed the game with a perfect ninth.

Berry (2-4) allowed four runs on eight hits over six innings to earn his second straight victory. Ynoa (2-4) was tagged for a season-high eight runs and suffered his sixth straight winless start.

The B-Mets (28-30) look to snap a stretch of eight straight winless series as they conclude their three-game series with a rubber match on Thursday night at 6:35 PM. RHP Luis Cessa takes the hill against Major League rehabber RHP Kevin Gausman. The Horizons Federal Credit Union Pregame Show can be heard starting at 6:20 PM on Newsradio 1290 WNBF and the Binghamton Mets channel on TuneIn.

POSTGAME NOTES: The B-Mets have lost six straight games on Wednesdays…Binghamton has not won back-to-back games since May 22 & 23 against the Akron RubberDucks…it was Ynoa’s shortest start since he lasted 2-2/3 innings as a St. Lucie Met (High-A) on April 16, 2014
