B-Mets Power to Win
The Binghamton Mets powered their way to victory last night with an 11-4 romp over the New Britain Rock Cats at NYSEG Stadium. Binghamton used three home runs and an eight run second inning to roll to a win. The B-Mets are in first place in the Eastern Division of the Eastern League. They lead Trenton by one-half game and Reading by one and one-half games. New Hampshire is three games behind Binghamton.
Brock Peterson slammed a pair of home runs and Josh Rodriguez ripped a solo shot off the top of the message board in left field. Robert Gsellman started and earned his fourth win in his last six starts.
The B-Mets now head to Richmond for four straight games beginning tonight at 7:05 (air at 6:50 on News Radio 1290 WNBF). Their record is 57-46. Rainy Lara is tonight's scheduled starter for manager Pedro Lopez. Binghamton's win Wednesday night was the 300th career victory for Lopez as manager of the B-Mets.
