Harrisburg, PA (WBNG Binghamton)

Jean Luc Blaquiere smacked three hits and drove in four runs to help
Binghamton recover from a 5-0 deficit and win 8-7 over Harrisburg Friday night at Metro
Bank Park. Brad Holt earned the win for the B-Mets with two, hitless innings of relief.
The Senators took command in the third inning against Brandon Moore. Josh Johnson
drew a one-out walk. A two-out single from Chris Rahl moved him to third and he scored
on Tyler Moore’s hot shot through the left side to give Harrisburg a 1-0 lead.
Moore allowed two more in the fourth inning. Tim Pahuta drew a leadoff walk and was
joined on base when Devin Ivany singled. Moore came back to get the next two men, but
uncorked a wild pitch to score Pahuta and move Ivany to third. Johnson plated the
runner from third with a bunt single, which advanced the lead to 3-0.
Harrisburg (60-47) kept its foot on the accelerator in the fifth with two more runs on
back-to-back RBI singles from Ivany and Chris McConnell.
Binghamton (43-64) finally broke through against Senators’ starter Shairon Martis in the
sixth. Juan Lagares led off with a single to right, Reese Havens moved him to second
with a single to center and Brahiam Maldonado plated Lagares with a single to center to
get the B-Mets on the board. Allan Dykstra made it four straight hits with a blooper to
center, which loaded the bases. Michael Fisher made good on the situation with a sac fly
to left, scoring Havens. Martis settled down to strike out Raul Reyes, but Blaquiere got
the better of him with a two-run double to left, which cleared the bases and drew
Binghamton within a run.
Martis exited after permitting the double in favor of Hassan Pena. The reliever induced a
comebacker to the mound from pinch-hitter Eric Campbell, but misfired on his throw to
first. Tyler Moore picked the one-hop throw, but his left foot came off the bag allowing
Campbell to reach and Blaquiere to score the tying run.
Moore exited to a no-decision courtesy of the five-run sixth. He allowed five runs on nine
hits and walked three. Martis also took a no-decision. He fired 5 2/3 innings and allowed
five runs on eight hits with eight strikeouts.
