B-Mets Bombard Senators, 6-2
HARRISBURG, PA- The Binghamton Mets rode three home runs and a four-hit day from Xorge Carrillo to a 6-2 win over the Harrisburg Senators, Sunday afternoon at FNB Field. Binghamton took the rubber game of the three-game series and finished the season series with a 5-4 advantage.
Binghamton started fast as Derrik Gibson led off the game with a walk and stole second. He later scored on a Dominic Smith single, giving the B-Mets an early 1-0 lead.
They added to that advantage in the second when Carrillo belted a leadoff homer to left-center. The power strokes continued in the third, as Smith led off with a double and Matt Oberste followed by launching a mammoth home run to left. The two-run bomb pushed the Binghamton advantage to 4-0.
The Senators got one back in the bottom of the sixth as Jose Marmolejos smacked a pinch-hit double to lead it off. Stephen Perez drove him in with a fielder’s choice two batters later and the lead was cut to 4-1.
Smith extended the lead in the seventh, driving a leadoff home run to left field. The home run snapped a 19-game homerless drought for Smith and made the score 5-1.
Harrisburg plated another in the bottom of the inning when Shawn Pleffner led off with a double and scored on a Spencer Kieboom single. That chased B-Mets starter Josh Zeid but Tim Peterson got out of the inning with no further harm and Binghamton led, 5-2.
Zeid (4-3) earned the win with six innings of two-run ball. He struck out three, walked one and at one point retired 11 batters in a row in his first start back from a three-start stint in Triple-A.
Binghamton’s final run came in the ninth when Oberste doubled and Jayce Boyd drove him in with a single to make it 6-2.
Smith went 3-for-5 and was a triple shy of the cycle, Oberste went 2-for-5 with a homer and a double and Carrillo finished 4-for-5 with a home run.
