Starting pitcher Drew Gagnon gave up seven hits, four earned runs, two walks, and one home run in five innings pitched. Unfortunately, the 51s’ bullpen made the night even worse and allowed nine earned runs. At the plate, Zach Borenstein shined and went 2-for-4 with two RBI. Aside from him, the 51s’ offense tallied thirteen strikeouts.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (6-7)

In five innings, he gave up three hits, two earned runs, and three walks. On the bright side, he was able to strike out three SeaWolves before departing. After Jannis left the game, the Rumble Ponies’ relievers were able to keep Erie quiet at the plate.

At the plate, Levi Michael was pivotal to the Rumble Ponies’ success. He hit his first home run of the season in the third inning. Later on in the game, John Mora drove him in on a single to center field. Unfortunately, Tim Tebow had a golden sombrero at the plate. He’s having an bad start to the season and is currently hitting .214/.267/.357.

Cone was 2-for-2 and drove in a run with a single. Strom also went 2-for-2 and scored on Cone’s single. On the mound, Blake Taylor had a decent outing. In five innings pitched, he gave up 4 hits and three earned runs, but he was able to net seven strike outs. Aside from Taylor, the Mets reliever, Ryder Ryan had a stellar outing. Ryan successfully struck out four Hammerheads in two innings worked.
