Sisco’s Net Work Too Much for B-Mets, 6-2
BOWIE, MD – Bowie catcher Chance Sisco drove in three runs to carry the Baysox past the Binghamton Mets, 6-2, on Sunday afternoon on Prince George’s Stadium. Amed Rosario compiled a three-hit game and drove in both Binghamton runs in the losing effort.
Binghamton mustered one run against Bowie starter Matthew Grimes. The righty slipped out of a bases-loaded threat in the second before stranding two more in the third. Rosario put the B-Mets on the board with a two-out RBI single to shallow center.
After Sharlon Schoop tied the game with a sacrifice fly in the fifth, Sisco lined a two-out, two-run double into the left-field alley against B-Mets starter Ricky Knapp in the sixth.
Rosario cut the deficit in half in the eighth by threading an RBI triple into the right-field corner. The B-Mets shortstop was thrown out at home attempting to score the tying run on a chopper to third, the second B-Met nabbed at the plate in the game.
With their lead trimmed to one, Bowie answered back in the eighth. Sisco blasted a solo homer, his fourth of the season, off Paul Paez and Henry Urrutia capped the three-run inning by adding a two-run homer to right.
Knapp (4-1) struck out seven, but allowed three runs on four hits over seven innings in his first loss of the season. Grimes (3-4) scattered five hits and struck out four in six innings of work.
The B-Mets (61-71) open a four-game series in Altoona against the Curve on Monday at 6:00 PM. RHP Rainy Lara takes the hill against RHP Nick Kingham. The Horizons Federal Credit Union Pregame Show can be heard starting at 5:45 PM on News Radio 1290, WNBF and the Binghamton Mets channel on TuneIn.
