The Binghamton Mets finish up their series at Erie Wednesday, with a 12:35 first pitch at Jerry Uht Park.
Cory Mazzoni will make his second start for Binghamton. He got a no-decision back on Apr. 5, in 2-1 win over Akron. He pitched five innings, giving up an unearned run. He struck out seven and walked one.
Mark Cohoon picked up the win in that game and Jack Leathersich picked up his first save of the season.
The Binghamton pitching staff is a huge reason the B-Mets have gotten off to a decent start. They have walked 13 batters in the six games thus far and have an impressive earned run average of 3.29, which includes Sunday’s 13-3 loss at Akron.
Binghamton (4-2) will look to jumpstart the offense again, after being held to one run Tuesday night. Despite getting eight hits, the B-Mets managed just one run on an RBI double by Rhyne Hughes in the first inning.
Richard Lucas went 3-for-4 in the loss last night for Binghamton.
Erie scored single runs in the sixth and seventh and hung on to even the series.
The SeaWolves will send Patrick Cooper to the mound for his second start. Cooper gave up three runs and eight hits in just two innings of work against Altoona.
Leadoff man Alonzo Harris has a six-game hitting streak for Binghamton and has gone 4-for-9 in this series with a homerun.
The B-Mets have only scored 22 runs in the first six games of the roadtrip, bogged down by two 2-1 wins at Akron and last night’s single run output. The season high for runs thus far is seven. They did it Monday night in this series and Saturday against Akron.
Binghamton will look to win their second series of the season with a win today. They are currently tied for first place in the Eastern Division with Reading, who is also 4-2.
