Recapish


            Josh Zeid returned from his spot start with Las Vegas to start for the B-Mets Saturday night, but Binghamton’s bats came up short against Sam Howard and the Yard Goats in a 4-2 loss. Zeid struggled through a very long 3rd inning, which is when Hartford jumped ahead for good.

            The teams traded runs in the 1st inning. Pat Valaika went deep for Hartford and Dominic Smith doubled home a run for Binghamton. The Smith double was flared down the LF line, landing just fair and just out of Rosell Herrera’s reach. The ball bounced out of play, which prevented Amed Rosario from possibly coming home for a second run.
            Juan Ciriaco doubled to spark the Yard Goats big rally in the 3rd inning, but it was the back-to-back walks with one out that really came back to burn Zeid. Both runners came around to score with two outs in the frame, which gave Hartford a 4-1 lead.
            Victor Cruzado added a solo blast leading off the 9th inning, but it was too little too late for the B-Mets in this one. I break down the B-Mets scoring and defense highlights below, so enjoy! This series wraps up Sunday afternoon at 1:05 PM, with Mickey Jannis (3-8, 4.79 ERA) scheduled to start for Binghamton.
