Poor 8th Inning by Beato Leads to 5-1 Defeat for Buffalo
After pitching a 1-2-3 seventh inning, Pedro Beato returned for a second inning of work in Buffalo and did not retire a batter as the Bisons fell 5-1 Monday night.
In the eighth inning, Beato let up a single, then back-to-back home runs, followed by two more singles which was all the Pawtucket Red Sox needed to secure the victory.
Collin McHugh started the game for the Bisons and showed poor command although only allowed three hits and one run in five and two-thirds innings. McHugh’s command has declined from Binghamton to Buffalo in 2012 allowing 2.05 BB/9 in Binghamton and 3.67 BB/9 in Buffalo. His command led to difficult innings for McHugh but he only allowed the three hits and struck out six and was able to contain any further damage. Justin Hampson pitched a clean 8th inning stranding Beato’s two runners in the 8th and Fernando Cabrera pitched a solid 9th inning.
The Bisons could not sustain any offense with only four hits in the game including singles by Fred Lewis, Josh Rodriguez, Zach Lutz, and Mike Nickeas. Satin had the only RBI on a sacrifice fly scoring Fred Lewis in the first inning.
Herd Rumblings: Fred Lewis’ run in the bottom of the first was his 68th of the season, which ranks him third in the IL…Josh Satin’s 11-game hitting streak was snapped after going 0-for-3. The Bisons send Jeurys Familia to the mound Tuesday night 7:05PM vs the Pawtucket Red Sox to finish the two game series. Familia has had an up and down season with 5.52 ERA in April, 4.67 in May, 4.48 in June, 5.19 in July, and 6.59 in August. Command has been a major issue for Familia this year allowing 65 BB on the season. Rumors on Sunday had Sandy Alderson and Terry Collins stating Familia could see time in September with the Mets in the bullpen.
