Recap


            The B-Mets were blown out in the finale Sunday afternoon, as the Fightins clinched a series win with ‘two touchdowns’. Binghamton jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the 1st, but their defense failed Lugo in the 2nd, allowing the Fightins to jump ahead 4-1. The rally actually got started when the umpires mistakenly awarded Brodie Green a HBP on a pitch he fouled off – the ball ran in and Green protected himself with an excuse me swing, and then started acting like he was hit after he was awarded 1B. Things were made worse when Brock Peterson committed two fielding errors within 3 plays, and then a fourth run scored when J.P. Crawford doubled on a fly ball that deflected in-and-out of Pina’s glove in RF. Reading pulled away against Lugo with two outs in the 6th, as 5 straights Fightins reached for 5 more runs. The B-Mets defense failed Lugo again in the 3rd, as the inning should’ve ended with no runs allowed when Rene Garcia popped out to shallow LF, but both Cecchini and Conforto lost the ball in the sun, and it dropped in for a double. The triple came on a fly ball that landed just out of the reach of a diving Pina in right center field, and then rolled to the wall – Quinn had a chance to touch them all with his speed. Aside from Conforto’s first homerun in AA, the B-Mets offense was pretty much shut down the rest of the way, and then Reading added on with 4 against Kolarek in the 8th and another run against Sewald in the 9th. Kolarek’s magical run appears to have ended, as the league appears to have adjusted to his new arm slot.
            The B-Mets have a much needed off day Monday, but then head to Bowie for 3, which is one of the few Binghamton series that won’t be covered by MiLB.tv this year.
