Mets Minors: Tyler Pill Falters, B-Mets Bullpen Pummelled In 13-3 Loss
Akron Aeros 13, Binghamton Mets 3
The Mets may be awesome – but even they can’t win them all, as the B-Mets dropped this game to the Aeros 13-3.
If this game only lasted five innings, the Mets would have walked away with a commanding victory – and although the numbers may look a little rough, there were a lot of positives to take away from Tyler Pill‘s AA debut. After walking the first batter, Tyler Holt, to begin the game, Pill retired the next nine batters straight. This including striking out the side in the third and allowing just two hits and one run through the five innings overall. The run was unearned as well, due to a throwing error in the fourth.
Pill fell apart in the sixth, however, where he allowed three hits, a walk, and a run without recording an out. He was pulled from the game in favor of Mark Cohoon, who allowed all three inherited runners to score, which left Pill’s final line at five hits and two walks through 5+ innings, with four earned runs. Cohoon, unfortunately, struggled on his own as he was on the hook for eight hits and four earned runs after recording only three outs.
The Mets did scratch out three runs on the other side of the ball, as Darrell Ceciliani ripped an RBI double to score Wilfredo Tovar – and Blake Forsythe drilled an RBI double of his own to drive home Ceciliani. Ceciliani was not done either, as he picked up an RBI single in the seventh for the third Binghamton run.
It was a sloppy game defensively though, with Binghamton committing five errors in the field, which led to four unearned runs and a harder time on the already taxed pitching staff. The good thing about baseball is that even when you have games like these, you can shake it off with a great effort the very next night.
The B-Mets start a series with the Erie SeaWolves tomorrow evening at 6:35 PM, where Erik Goeddel makes his AA debut.
- Darrell Ceciliani - 2 for 5, 2B, 2 RBI, R, Err.
- Blake Forsythe - 1 for 4, 2B, RBI
- Richard Lucas - 2 for 4, 2 Err.
- Tyler Pill - 5 IP, 5 H, 2 BB, 5 R (4 ER), 5 K, L.
