Ponies Rumble to Road Win
The Binghamton Rumble Ponies came from behind and scored three runs in the ninth inning to defeat the Richmond Flying Squirrels 5-4 at The Diamond in Richmond, Virginia last night. Binghamton played from behind much of the night and took the lead with two outs in the top of the ninth frame when Kevin Taylor drew a walk to drive in the eventual winning run. The Rumble Ponies had tied the score at 4-4 when Tomas Nido notched his third hit of the game with a two-run single.
Scarlyn Reyes earned his first Double-A win pitching a perfect ninth inning. The win ups the Rumble Ponies record to 23-15 . That puts them at a season-high eight games over the .500 mark.
The teams meet in the second game of the four-game series tonight (Tuesday) in Richmond. P J Conlon makes the start against Richmond's Sam Coonrod. Tim Heiman calls the action with coverage beginning at 6:20 PM on News Radio 1290 WNBF.
