Binghamton Handles New Hampshire In Extras
The Binghamton Rumble Ponies snapped a four-game losing streak on June 18 by defeating the New Hampshire Fisher Cats by a score of 6-3. Binghamton also snapped their four-game losing streak against New Hampshire as they had lost the four previous matchups. With this momentum, the Rumble Ponies looked to go on a winning streak on June 19 at Northeast Delta Dental Stadium.
The game didn't start the way the Rumble Ponies had envisioned. After three scoreless innings, Logan Warmoth hits a fly ball to center field, gets out, but not before Nash Knight scores to give the Fisher Cats the lead in the bottom of the fourth.
At the top of the sixth, Binghamton would get a sac fly run of their own off the bat of Barrett Barnes. His shot to center field would bring home Braxton Lee to tie the score at one apiece. Neither team could pull away in the final three innings, so the game went into extra innings.
The Rumble Ponies are 5-1 in extra innings games this season, and it certainly showed in the top of the tenth. Patrick Mazeika hits a line drive to center field for single, scoring Dustin Houle and Braxton Lee putting Binghamton up 3-1. The Fisher Cats would threaten to take the victory Vinny Capra singles to bring in Riley Adams and cut the lead down to one. However, the Rumble Ponies are able to hold on and win the game by a final score of 3-2.
Binghamton has taken two of three games in New Hampshire, improving their record to 35-29 overall. The final game of the road trip will be held at Northeast Delta Dental Stadium on June 20 at 6:35 P.M.
