Trenton, NJ (WBNG Binghamton)
Mike Fisher ripped three hits and drove in four of Binghamton’s six runs
to lead the B-Mets past Trenton 6-4 at Waterfront Park Tuesday night. Collin McHugh
notched his fifth win with five innings of one-run work as the starter.
Binghamton (48-68) surged into the lead in the first inning against Thunder starter
Graham Stoneburner. After the righty got the first two hitters of the frame, Reese
Havens doubled into the right field corner. Stoneburner proceeded to walk the next two
men to load the bases for Fisher. The B-Mets third baseman capitalized with a basesclearing
double over the head of rightfielder Zoilo Almonte.
Trenton (58-57) cut into the lead in the fifth after McHugh had chalked up four, scoreless
innings. The composed righty grew a bit erratic at the outset of the frame. He hit Jose Gil
with the first pitch of the inning and on the next pitch threw a wild pitch to move him into
scoring position. Addison Maruszak pushed him to third with a deep flyout to right and
the next man, Austin Krum, scored Gil with a groundout to second, trimming the deficit
to two, 3-1.
The B-Mets got the run back almost instantaneously in the sixth. Fisher led off with a
single to short off Stoneburner. Raul Reyes followed and clobbered a hanging 1-2
breaking ball over the wall in center for a two-run homer. His 10th homer of the season
advanced the Binghamton lead to 5-1.
