Syracuse 6 Buffalo 4

Starter Anthony Kay struggled with his command, yet his teammates bailed him out in the early innings, but the Buffalo offence went cold over the second half of the game and the Bisons dropped a decision to the Mets.

Kay fanned 6 over 3.1 innings, but he allowed 3 walks and 4 hits, and was touched for 4 runs, all earned. But the Bisons matched Syracuse run for run until the 7th, when the Mets got to reliever Dany Jimenez for a pair of runs, providing the margin of difference.

Forrest Wall reached three times in four plate appearances with a pair of hits and walk for Buffalo, while Richie Ureña hit his second homer of the season.


Binghamton 8 New Hampshire 7

For the second straight night, the Fisher Cats snatched a defeat from the jaws of victory, losing to the Rumble Ponies in 10 innings.

New Hampshire staked starter Maximo Castillo to a 5-0 lead after three innings. Gaby Moreno drove in a run with an oppo single in the 1st, Samad Taylor hit his 4th long ball of the season in the 2nd, then Otto Lopez cashed in two more runs in the same inning. Reggie Pruitt brought in the fifth Fisher Cats run in the 3rd with an RBI groundout.

But the Ponies chipped away at Castillo, scoring a pair in the 4th. Castillo came back out for the 6th, but left the game after giving up a run on a walk, double, and single to the first three hitters of the inning. Hard-throwing reliever Andrew McInvale came in and got a double play ball, but the runner on 3rd left by Castillo came in to score.

New Hampshire added an insurance run in the 8th on Reggie Pruitt’s second round tripper of the season, but Binghamton responded with a pair in the 9th to tie the game.

In the 10th, Binghamton scored a pair. In the bottom of the 10th LJ Talley cashed in placed runner Taylor with a one out single. Austin Martin drew a walk to move Talley up to 2nd, but the Fisher Cats were unable to put the tying run across.

Otto Lopez paced the New Hampshire attack with a 3-6 night, while Moreno and Jordan Groshans had a pair of hits each.
