Trenton, NJ (WBNG Binghamton)
Binghamton tied a season-high with seven runs in the fifth inning, helped
by four Trenton errors, as the B-Mets shellacked the Thunder 9-3 at Waterfront Park
Wednesday night. One night removed from posting three hits, Mike Fisher delivered a 3-
for-5 line with a double and an RBI.
Binghamton (49-68) got to Shaeffer Hall in the first inning to take the early lead. With
two outs, Reese Havens reached with a single to center. Brahiam Maldonado moved him
to second with a single to right and Fisher brought Havens home with a single to center.
The B-Mets added to its slim lead in the second with another run. Jon Malo started the
uprising with an infield single. Juan Lagares pushed him to third with a blooper to right
before Havens scored Malo on a single to right, which made it 2-0.
Trenton (58-58) got both runs back in the last of the second against starter Matt Harvey.
Melky Mesa led off with a single. Zoilo Almonte followed and joined Mesa on base after
hitting a single off the leg of Harvey, who appeared no worse for wear. Damon Sublett
became the third straight hitter to reach and cut into the Binghamton lead with an RBI
double to left. Jose Gil rounded out the comeback with an RBI groundout to short, which
tied the score.
Harvey settled in from there and retired nine straight until Addison Maruszak reached
with a double in the fifth.
Hall and the Thunder, however, hit the wall in the fifth inning. Havens led the frame off
with a double to the gap in left-center. Maldonado joined Havens on base after reaching
on the first of four Trenton errors. After Fisher flied out to right, Dusty Ryan was given a
reprieve by Maruszak after hitting a tailor-made double-play ball to third that was
mishandled by the infielder. With the bases loaded thanks to two errors and a double,
Eric Campbell brought the go-ahead run home on an infield single. Niuman Romero
pushed two more home with a groundball down the first-base line that was ruled an error
on Rob Lyerly. Matt den Dekker followed with an RBI single to right that chased Hall from
