Familia Highlights Rumble Ponies Win
The Binghamton Rumble Ponies rolled to an 8-3 win over the Portland Sea Dogs on Monday night at NYSEG Stadium. New York Mets closer Jeurys Familia pitched the sixth inning and retired the side in order on just nine pitches. Familia is making a Major League rehab appearance in Binghamton. He is expected to pitch again in tonight's (Tuesday's) game when the Rumble Ponies host the Sea Dogs at 6:35 (air at 620 on News Radio 1290 WNBF). Familia is eligible to pitch for New York this Thursday.
Mickey Jannis started the game for the Rumble Ponies and got the win. He gave up two unearned runs in five innings of work.
Kevin Kaczmarski hit a sixth inning home run and Colton Plaia drove in two runs on a pair of hits. Tyler Pill is the scheduled starter tonight for Binghamton and will be opposed by Teddy Stankiewicz for the Sea Dogs.
