Sixth Inning Sends Binghamton To Victory Over SenatorsPosted: Updated:
BINGHAMTON, NY – Binghamton scored six runs in the sixth inning Sunday afternoon at NYSEG Stadium, taking the rubber game against Harrisburg 7-2. The Spiedies win marks the second time Binghamton has taken two of three from Harrisburg, ending their regular-season series four games to two.
Trailing 2-1, the Spiedies sent 12 batters to the plate in the sixth inning, scoring their six runs on three hits and four walks. Facing Sterling Sharp, Andres Gimenez led off the inning with a double, before Levi Michael walked. A Joey Terdoslavich hard-hit single pushed each runner ahead one base, loading them for Tomas Nido. Binghamton’s catcher hit a chopper to the shortstop Carter Kieboom, whose throw home was low and underneath the catcher’s glove. The throwing error allowed two runners to score, giving Binghamton their first lead of the game. After Sharp was replaced by Bryan Harper, Jhoan Urena continued the rally with a two run single, pushing the lead to 5-2. Harper issued back-to-back walks to John Mora and David Roseboom, before whiffing Michael for the second out. The reliever then plunked Gimenez and walked Toffey, bringing home two more Spiedies to make it 7-2. Dakota Bacus was summoned to record the final out of the inning, a Terdoslavich strikeout.
Sharp (3-2) totaled five innings in the losing effort, allowing five earned runs. He struck out one and walked three.
Spiedies starter Kevin McGowan also lasted five innings, but limited the Senators to just one run. He gave up three two-out hits in the second inning, including an RBI single from Drew Ward. In his third appearance with Binghamton, the right-hander struck out six and walked one.
David Roseboom (3-2) was first to relieve McGowan and coughed up a run-scoring single to Dan Gamache in the sixth inning. The lefty held the Senators in check otherwise, tossing two innings with two strikeouts in the win.
Joe Zanghi and Stephen Nogosek combined to preserve Binghamton’s 7-2 lead, pitching the eighth and ninth innings scoreless.
