Binghamton 8, Harrisburg 4
One night after being no-hit, the Binghamton Mets scored eight runs in the first two innings en route to an 8-4, rain-shortened victory over the Harrisburg Senators Friday night at NYSEG Stadium.
After Harrisburg scored a run on an Anthony Rendon double in the top half of the first, Binghamton came out swinging against Harrisburg starter Caleb Clay. Darrell Ceciliani led off with a single, and Danny Muno followed with a two-run home run over the left field wall. Josh Rodriguez was then hit by a pitch, moved to third base on an Allan Dykstra single, and scored on a double play ball to put Binghamton on top, 3-1.
The bats remained hot in the second inning, as Binghamton batted around, scoring five times. Ceciliani continued his strong night with a two-run triple. After Rodriguez singled him home, Clay was relieved by Matt Swynenberg. He was welcomed into the game right away, as Dykstra smashed a two-run home run over the centerfield wall to push the lead to 8-1.
On the mound, Erik Goeddel ran into trouble in the fourth. He gave up back-to-back doubles by Ricky Hague and Swynenberg, Harrisburg cut the deficit to 8-4. Goeddel’s night was finished after five innings. He allowed four runs on six hits, and picked up his third victory of the season.
