Recapish


            The Binghamton Rumble Ponies survived a shootout with Harrisburg Sunday afternoon to complete their sweep of the Senators. Both teams came out firing and the Senators held a 6-5 lead after three, but Binghamton scored the last three runs for an 8-6 win. The bullpen has been one of Binghamton’s biggest strengths all season long and it shined again Sunday: Ben Griset, Kelly Secrest, recently acquired Drew Smith, and recently promoted Tyler Bashlor combined for 6.1 scoreless innings with seven strikeouts. Both teams combined for double-digit hits and the Ponies got contributions up and down the lineup for sixteen hits and five walks: Luis Guillorme was on base five times, David Thompson went deep as part of a multi-hit game, and Gustavo Nunez connected on an RBI double and a homerun.
            Binghamton jumped ahead 2-0 in the 1st on three straight hits. Luis Guillorme and Juan Lagares reached on back-to-back singles and then Matt Oberste doubled them both home.

            The bottom of the 1st began with a fielding error by David Thompson, which opened the door for a big inning for Harrisburg. Gsellman retired the next two batters on groundouts, so he would’ve had a 1-2-3 inning without the error, but instead found himself facing Dan Gamache with a run in and the bases empty. Gamache worked a walk to keep the inning alive and two hits later the Senators were up 3-2 with a runner on second after a Yadiel Hernandez double. They might’ve kept adding on if not for Juan Lagares, who threw Hernandez out trying to score when Khayyan Norfork followed with a single into CF.

Lagares OF assist? Seen one or two of those before...

            That lead did not last long, as David Thompson started the 2nd with a solo blast to left field, his tenth of the year. Tyler Moore added a single later in the frame and was on base four times Sunday.

            Gsellman allowed a leadoff single in the 2nd but worked around it to maintain the 3-3 tie. He finished the frame with a strikeout of Stephen Perez.

            Guillorme led off the 3rd with a single, went to second on a groundout, and then came around to score on a Kevin Kaczmarski single. Kacz moved up to second on the throw home after his single, and then came around to score after a David Thompson RBI single.

            The Senators rallied for three runs to take the lead back in the bottom of the 3rd. The first four Harrisburg batters reached on two singles and two walks to make it 5-3, and then the tying run came home on a 5-4-3 double play. Gsellman was given a chance to finish his outing on a high note, but Jake Lowery had other plans. He doubled home Drew Ward to make it a 6-5 game and send Gsellman to the showers.


            Lefty Ben Griset finished things off for Gsellman in the 3rd and then worked a scoreless 4th. Griset struck out Drew Ward to finish another strong outing, and he lowered his ERA to 2.33 with 1.1 scoreless. Also shown below is Champ's bunt single from the top half of the 4th.

            Matt Oberste got the 5th inning started with a single through the right side and the Ponies worked him around to tie this game up again. Kacz singled him to second base and Gustavo Nunez doubled him home later in the frame.

            Manager Luis Rojas brought in another Southpaw for the 5th and Kelly Secrest provided the Ponies with two scoreless frames. He struck out Lowery in the 5th and then Victor Robles during a perfect 6th.

            Binghamton jumped ahead with Secrest on the mound, which netted him a win. Guillorme worked a one out walk in the 6th, went to second on a Juan Lagares hit, to third on a fly out, and then scored on another Kacz RBI single. Lagares went first-to-third on the Kacz hit, but he was stranded 90’ from home and then took the rest of the night off.

            Drew Smith worked a scoreless 7th, although things got a little prickly for him. He walked two and allowed an infield single that loaded the bases, but then bounced back with a strikeout of Lowery before a pop out on the infield ended the frame.


            The Ponies had two more hits in their bats: another Guillorme single and then Gustavo Nunez’s first homer since joining the Ponies.

            Tyler Bashlor took over in the 8th and Rojas let his new flamethrower stay out there for a two-inning save. He had ten saves for St. Lucie, but this was his first Double-A save and his first save that lasted more than one inning this year. He struck out Robles, Jose Marmolejos and Khayyan Norfork during his outing.

            Looking ahead, the Ponies have Monday off but they return home for a three-game series with Erie on Tuesday.
