Duda produces only run for B-Mets in 4-1 loss to Altoona

BINGHAMTON, NY - Lucas Duda drove in the Binghamton Mets' only run in a 4-1 loss to the Altoona Curve on Sunday night at NYSEG Stadium. The B-Mets stranded nine runners and watched the Curve secure their first postseason berth since 2010 with the three-run victory. Duda went 1-for-3 with a walk and played nine innings at first base in his second rehab game.

Adam Frazier started Altoona's offensive effort with a bang, threading Gabriel Ynoa's second pitch of the night inside the right-field foul pole for a leadoff homer. Barrett Barnes tacked on in the fourth by ripping an RBI double into the left-field alley.

Jason Creasy kept the B-Mets in check, limiting Binghamton to one runner via a walk in his first four innings. Amed Rosario, making his Double-A debut, collected Binghamton's first hit by singling with two outs in the fifth. Albert Cordero followed with a walk, but Ynoa grounded out to end the threat.

Binghamton scratched out their only run in the sixth. LJ Mazzilli celebrated his 25th birthday by lining a leadoff double into the left-field gap. Duda brought him in my bouncing a single up the middle off Creasy.

With the B-Mets within a run, Altoona stretched their lead to a more comfortable margin with two runs in the seventh against Josh Smoker. After the southpaw walked a pair with two outs, Max Moroff yanked a two-run double down the left-field line to give the Curve a 4-1 lead.

Binghamton put two aboard in the seventh, but failed to push a run across against Brett McKinney. Jhondaniel Medina walked the first two he faced in the eighth, but bounced back with three outs to preserve the three-run lead. The righty worked around an error in the ninth to earn his 12th save.

Creasy (12-8) allowed one run on four hits over six innings in the win. Ynoa (9-9) was touched for two runs on five hits in six frames of work in the loss.

The B-Mets (76-64) complete the regular season on Monday afternoon at 1:05 PM. RHP Mickey Jannis takes the mound against RHP Chad Kuhl.
