Recapish


            The Binghamton Rumble Ponies pushed their record to 7 games over .500 and moved into a tie for 1st in their division behind a great start from Corey Oswalt Monday in Portland. Oswalt and Sea Dogs starter Kevin McAvoy battled for 7 innings, with neither budging an inch, so the game came down to a battle of bullpens. The Binghamton bullpen has been a huge strong point lately, and they shined over two scoreless innings in this one, allowing the Rumble Ponies to jump ahead 2-0 in the 9th, and take the opener of this series.
            Thanks to a pair of bad 1st innings, Oswalt allowed 8 runs over his first 5 innings this year, but has allowed just 3 runs over his last 30.1 IP. The 23-year old, 6’5 righty did walk a season high 3 batters in this start, but was otherwise very good. He was facing a very tough Portland lineup, which featured some guys he pitched against while in the SAL two years ago, but the Sea Dogs managed only a few scoring chances in this one.
            Oswalt finished the 2nd with his first two strikeouts, Nick Longhi and Jordan Procyshen were the victims.



            Patrick Biondi had the games first hit when he singled in the 3rd.


            Portland loaded the bases with two outs in the 3rd inning, but then Oswalt stepped it up and struck out Mike Olt to end the frame.


            Rafael Devers took a leadoff walk in the 4th, but was thrown out trying to steal 2B by Tomas Nido – footage got weird on the camera switch, so I can’t show the whole play.


            Deiner Lopez was Oswalt’s final strikeout victim, going down looking for the second out of the 5th. Oswalt then worked around a single in each of his final two innings before handing the ball off to the bullpen for the 8th.




            The Rumble Ponies offense was quiet all night, but Tomas Nido and David Thompson tried to create some two out magic with doubles in the 7th and 8th innings, respectively.



            Kyle Regnault was the first out of Bingo’s pen and he worked a perfect 8th, striking out Josh Tobias along the way.


            The Rumble Ponies then had the games only rally, which was sparked by Sunday’s hero Dale Burdick. Burdick walked, went to 2B on a sac bunt, to 3B on a Luis Guillorme single, and then scored on a Tomas Nido single. Guillorme also came around to score an insurance run on a Kevin Taylor sac fly.



            With the first lead of the game, closer Alberto Baldonado came out for the 9th and bookended the inning with strikeouts for his 5th save of the year.




            After taking the opener, Binghamton turns to Casey Delgado (1-4, 8.03 ERA) to make it 3 straight wins on Tuesday night, first pitch is scheduled for 6:00 PM.
