(WBNG Binghamton)

Zack Wheeler allowed a career-high eight runs and the Binghamton Mets were shutout for the ninth time this season in a 10-0 loss to the Bowie Baysox Friday night at Prince George’s Stadium. Wheeler allowed six hits, walked three, hit two batters and uncorked a wild pitch in his fifth loss.

Wheeler’s night immediately got off on the wrong foot. Ahead on Antoan Richardson in a 0-2 count, Wheeler (9-5) plunked the leadoff hitter and loaded the bases on two consecutive walks. Wheeler forced in a run by hitting Robbie Widlansky and watched two more runs score when Manny Machado singled to left. Aaron Baker capped the scoring with a two-run double to left.

The Baysox struck again in the fourth, chasing Wheeler from the game. Following a single and a walk, Richardson extended the lead with an RBI single. Jonathan Schoop tacked on with a sac fly and Widlansky ended the righty’s night by singling home a run. Wheeler exited after 3.2 innings, his second-shortest outing as a B-Met.

The B-Mets offense could not solve Bowie starter Zach Clark (9-4). The righty allowed just three hits over seven shutout innings to earn his second win against Binghamton this season. He finished one shy of season-high with six strikeouts. Pat Egan closed the game with two shutout innings of relief.

Reliever Jeff Stevens chewed up 2.1 innings without allowing a run. The righty struck out a season-high four in his sixth appearance with Binghamton. Adrian Rosario allowed two runs on two hits and three walks in the seventh and Edgar Ramirez
