BINGHAMTON - Ike Davis returned to the lineup, after missing three games, and collected two hits in the Binghamton Mets 4-1 loss to the Harrisburg Senators Wednesday night at NYSEG Stadium.

Jenrry Mejia returned from the disabled list to make his first start since June 23, but gave up a three-run first inning and took the loss.

Mejia struggled to find the plate in the first inning.

He walked the first two Senators batters, who both scored on Joel Guzman’s two-run double.

Guzman then scored on Marvin Lowrance’s single, pitting Harrisburg a 3-0 lead.

Josh Thole and Davis both singled in the first inning for Binghamton (44-70).

Senators’ starter Erik Arnesen then hit Lucas Duda to load the bases and D.J. Wabick would score Thole with a sacrifice fly, making it 3-1.

In the sixth, Harrisburg (54-61) increased the lead to 4-1 when Edgar Alfonzo walked Guzman to lead off the frame.

He would later score on Francisco Plasencia’s single.

Mejia, who was working on a pitch count, pitched three innings, allowing three runs on two hits with two walks. He was pinned with his fourth loss of the season with the B-Mets.

Arnesen settled down after the first inning to win his seventh game.

He went 5.1 innings, allowing one run on four hits.

Atahualpa Severino notched the save in his first opportunity with the Senators this season.

Binghamton will try and salvage the three-game series Thursday night against Harrisburg.
