B-Mets Manage to Outscore Thunder

BINGHAMTON, NY – Each of the nine Trenton Thunder batters recorded a hit for the Thunder offense Tuesday night, and in spite of outhitting the Binghamton Mets, the Thunder lost 6-4 in the series opener.

Binghamton got to Thunder starting pitcher Ronald Herrera in the bottom of the second inning on an RBI double by Victor Cruzado. In the top of the third, Trenton responded on a two-run double by Billy Fleming to take their lone lead of the game. Herrera walked a man and hit a pair to load the bases with no outs in the bottom of the third. After a sac fly scored a run, Cruzado delivered another double to drive home two men and give Binghamton a 4-2 lead.

The B-Mets opened up a three-run lead in the fourth inning before Trenton took the bat in the top of the fifth. Lane Adams reached base with two outs when Mark Payton came to bat and crushed his first homer of the year to bring the Thunder back to within a run.

Once the Thunder had made it 5-4, Binghamton added a to make the game 6-4 but Trenton never threatened against the back end of the B-Mets bullpen. Similarly, the Thunder bullpen received strong efforts from Eric Ruth and Cale Coshow who combined to go three shutout innings after Herrera allowed six earned runs at the start of the game.

The Thunder and B-Mets return to action Wednesday night with a scheduled 6:35 p.m. first pitch. Pregame coverage is set for 6:20 p.m. on 91.3 FM WTSR, 1490 AM WBCB and online at www.trentonthunder.com.
