Peavey Pitches Complete Game In B-Mets 5-2 Loss
The Binghamton Mets were unable to seal the deal in their bid for their third straight series win on Thursday night in Manchester as the New Hampshire Fisher Cats defeated the visiting B-Mets by a five to two score. With the loss, the B-Mets fell one game further behind the final playoff spot and are now seven games back.
Greg Peavey, making his twenty second start of the season for the B-Mets, went the distance for his first complete game performance of 2012. In eight innings, Peavey gave up five earned runs on nine hits, while striking out three and issuing no walks. Peavey surrendered two home runs in the game, a three run shot in the fourth off of the bat of John Tolisano and a solo round tripper by Sean Ochinko in the seventh. With the loss in the game, Peavey’s record now stands at 6-and-8 on the season with a 5.41 ERA.
Former major leaguer Yorvit Torrealba, signed by the Toronto Blue Jays and assigned to New Hampshire earlier in the week, made his Fisher Cats debut in the game. Torreabla went 1-for-4 on the night, with no runs scored. He was also charged with one passed ball in the game.
For the B-Mets, Jefry Marte had the biggest numbers at the plate in the game going 2-for-3 with both B-Mets runs scored. Marte snapped an 0-for-12 streak over the last three games with his performance on the night. Francisco Pena was also 2-for-3 in the game with a walk issued as well. Pena has now hit safely in a season high five games in a row.
Wilfredo Tovar went 1-for-4 on the night and was credited with hitting in both of the B-Mets runs in the game. Wilmer Flores, who also went 1-for-4, and Juan Lagares, who went 1-for-5, rounded out the B-Mets total of seven hits in the game. Flores’ season high hitting streak is now at six games.
