BINGHAMTON, N.Y. (WBNG) - The Binghamton Rumble Ponies were down 5-0 at one point, but fought back to tie the game in the sixth. In the end, however, Michael Toglia’s second solo homerun of the night led Hartford to a 6-5 win on Friday night.

Toglia took a pitch from Ponies reliever Mitch Ragan (1-3) into left centerfield in the eighth which gave Hartford the one-run lead. The Toglia also hit a homer to make it 5-0 Yard Goats in the fifth. He finished 2-4 with two RBI.

Aaron Schunk opened the scoring in the second with his ninth homer of the season and 58th RBI off Ponies starter Garrison Bryant. Hartford added one in the third and two more in the fourth on Willie MacIver’s RBI single. MacIver eventually scored on a throwing error to give Hartford a 4-0 lead.

The Ponies’ comeback started in the fifth with an RBI double from Brett Baty which brought in Matt Winaker. Four runs came across in the sixth on Zach Ashford’s two-run double scoring Carlos Cortes and Nick Meyer. Wyatt Young’s RBI single scored Ashford and Luke Ritter’s sacrifice fly brought Winaker home.

The Ponies will continue their weekend series with the Hartford Yard Goats on Saturday evening. First pitch is scheduled for 6:35 PM
