Binghamton, NY (WBNG Binghamton) While the offense has struggled, the pitching has lived up to expectations in the first 3 games of the season.

B-Mets pitchers have allowed only 6 earned runs in 27 innings to start the season, good for a 2.00 ERA, which has them ranked 2nd in the league.

Though they have two losses, the starters so far have allowed only 9 hits in 14 innings, while striking out 15 batters.

Darin Gorski, who got the team's first win, says it's great to be in a rotation with so much talent, adding the pitchers push each other to be as good as they can be each time they take the mound.

"It's fun...it's a lot of fun. With the guys that we have...to see them compete day in and day out, you basically try to compete with them. You go out there and try to match good performances and thats basically what we do year round...no matter who you're throwing with, you just try to go out and match their performance," says Gorski.

The B-Mets will send right handed pitcher Greg Peavey to the mound on Monday night as the B-Mets start a 3 game series at home against Erie.

Game time is 6:35 pm.
