Five-Run Fourth Seals The Deal For PoniesPosted: Updated:
Binghamton, NY – The Binghamton Rumble Ponies bullpen combined for a 3-hit shutout and Jason Krizan hit his fourth homer this week as the Ponies (26-16) blanked the Thunder (27-18) 6-0 at NYSEG Stadium on Friday night. The Ponies were fueled on “Star Wars Night” by a five-run fourth inning capped off by Krizan’s three-run shot to right.
Adonis Uceta made the spot start and pitched three scoreless frames, despite allowing two hits and three walks. Joshua Torres came in to replace him and pitched three innings, allowing just one hit, with 0 walks and two strikeouts. Ryley Gillam pitched two scoreless and Matt Blackham retired the side in order in the ninth to close things out.
Krizan continued his hot week as he hit his first homer of the year in the Ponies 7-1 win over the Thunder on Sunday. He then had two homers and a season-high five RBI Tuesday night in Binghamton’s 7-3 win over the Baysox in Bowie.
