Ponies Remain Perfect In Home Series with 5-3 Win Over Fisher Cats
The Binghamton Rumble Ponies have started off their six game home series with two consecutive wins over the New Hampshire Fisher Cats.
On Tuesday Binghamton snapped a three-game skid with a 3-2 victory in front of the home town fans at Mirabito stadium.
Last night they followed with another very good performance in a 5-3 win over New Hampshire.
Binghamton’s right hander Adam Oller went 5.1 innings, striking out six batters and allowing only two runs.
The Ponies offense had another stellar night taking the lead in the first inning with an RBI double by Carlos Cortes and a pop-up sacrifice fly to go up 2-0.
The Cats loaded the bases in the third with no outs but only managed one run, and Binghamton retaliated in the bottom of the third with a two-run shot over the fence by Luis Carpio to put the Ponies up 4-1.
New Hampshire fought back with runs in the fourth and sixth innings, and came close to tying the score in the seventh but Binghamton ended the rally with a double play with the Ponies up 4-3.
Carlos Cortes had his second RBI of the night to complete the 5-3 victory, giving the Rumble Ponies their 20th win of the season.
The Ponies are currently in fourth place in the Northeast two and a half games ahead of last place Hartford and two games behind third place Reading.
The Binghamton Rumble Ponies continue their home series against New Hampshire tonight at 6:35pm, as they try to make it three straight wins.
The team will continue the essential workers week with a recognition to our Fire Fighters and EMT’s.
