Recapish


            Chris Flexen came off the DL for the Rumble Ponies Thursday night in Hartford and dominated for six innings, striking out ten and limiting the Yard Goats to one hit. Hartford came back some against the Ponies pen late, but the bats had provided enough of a buffer to absorb the four late runs allowed. Luis Guillorme and Matt Oberste led the way at the plate for Binghamton, as the two combined for six hits, two doubles (Guillorme), a homer (Oberste), three runs scored, and four runs batted in.
            Champ Stuart led off the game with a single, stole second, and went to third with no outs on a wild pitch, but the Ponies couldn’t get him home.


            Flexen started his night with four straight strikeouts and thirteen straight retired overall. He struck out the side in the 1st on 16 pitches, Correlle Prime leading off the 2nd, Anthony Phillips in an 18-pitch 3rd, Drew Weeks in the 4th, and then Prime again to start the 5th.

            Binghamton took control of this game with a five-run 3rd, when they connected for four hits and worked a pair of walks. Chris Flexen sparked the rally with a one out single, and Guillorme doubled him home two batters later. Oberste kept the train rolling with an RBI single to right to make it a 2-0 game. The final three runs came home on a L.J. Mazzilli single down the right field line, which was booted for an E9. Credit Kevin Kaczmarski for flying around the bases to slide in just ahead of the tag.

            Nido led off the 6th with a double, his thirteenth of the season.


            Oberste gave Binghamton some insurance when he launched his fourth homer of the season to deep left center in the 7th. Kaczmarski added a singe in the frame.

            The Yard Goats charged back with three runs in the 7th, all of which were charged to Corey Taylor. Taylor issued a leadoff walk and allowed three singles before finally getting an out. Ben Griset would take over for him in a bases loaded situation, and he allowed two of those runners to come home before finally ending the inning with a strikeout.

            Hartford would get one more run back when Josh Fuentes took Cory Burns deep in the 9th, but it was too little too late for the Yard Goats. After earning a split of this four-game series in Hartford, the Binghamton Rumble Ponies headed home to start a weekend series with the Harrisburg Senators. Mickey Jannis is scheduled to start the opener Friday night in Binghamton.s
