Mateo Struggles Before Injury, Juan Centeno Drives In Two In Binghamton Defeat
We want to welcome notable photographer Gordon Donovan to our team. Gordon’s work is featured mostly on CBS News and various political sites, but he is also a die-hard Mets fan who follows the Mets minor leagues very closely and will be doing photo shoots all season long for each affiliate throughout the season. His photography is absolutely spectacular as you can see, and we are proud to be featuring his stunning images at MMO this season. It’s an honor to showcase his images on this site.
Portland 7, Binghamton 4
The B-Mets were held hitless through 6.2 innings, and finished with four hits in a 7-4 loss to the Portland Sea Dogs Monday night at NYSEG Stadium.
Portland struck first in the top of the second inning against B-Met starter Luis Mateo. After Peter Hissey singled, moved to second on a balk, and stole third base, he was brought home on an RBI single by Alberto Rosario. In the third, Portland took a 3-0 lead when Tony Thomas hit a two-run home run to right-centerfield.
In his Double-A debut, Mateo’s night ended after throwing just three pitches in the fourth inning. With a 3-0 count to Alberto Rosario, Mateo was removed from the game with an apparent injury. He finished his night giving up three runs on six hits.
LHP Sean Teufel came in for relief, and made his B-Met debut. He gave up one run in the fourth on a RBI single by Michael Almanzar, but came back to throw a scoreless fifth. John Church came in next and threw a scoreless sixth and seventh, his best outing so far this season.
After the B-Mets were held hitless through 6.2 innings, Juan Centeno ended the no-hitter and shutout with a two-run double off of Pete Ruiz. With a 4-2 advantage in the top of the ninth, the Sea Dogs tacked on three more runs on four hits against Chase Hutchingson. Binghamton showed life in the ninth, scoring twice on RBI doubles from Rhyne Hughes and Cesar Puello, but could not complete the comeback. Anthony Ranaudo earned the win after striking out six in five hitless innings. Mateo was given the loss in his Double-A debut.
Luis Mateo: 3.0 IP, 6 H, 1 HR, 3 BB, 4 ER, 2 K
Juan Centeno: 1-for-3, 1 2B, 2 RBI
