GAME ONE

BINGHAMTON 7, ALTOONA 0 /7 (BOX)

The Binghamton Rumble Ponies got a big performance out of starter Anthony Kay in the first game of Tuesday night’s doubleheader against the Altoona Curve. Kay threw a complete game shutout, allowing just three hits and one walk and striking out eight in seven scoreless innings of work. The Rumble Ponies did not need much offense in the first game of the doubleheader, given Kay’s excellent outing, but scored seven runs for good measure. They got on the board in the bottom of the fourth, when Barrett Barnes drove Andres Gimenez home from third on a sacrifice fly. Binghamton put the game well out of Altoona’s reach in the bottom of the sixth inning. Andres Gimenez and Braxton Lee singled back to back to open the inning, and both ended up scoring on back to back doubles from Barrett Barnes and Patrick Mazeika. Kevin Kaczmarski walked with Mazeika on second a few batters later, and Dario Pizzano followed with a three-run homer. The Binghamton Rumble Ponies ended up defeating the Altoona Curve 7-0 in the first game of Tuesday evening’s doubleheader.

GAME TWO

BINGHAMTON 5, ALTOONA 1 /7 (BOX)

The Rumble Ponies fell behind in the second game of Tuesday evening’s doubleheader against the Altoona Curve in the top of the third inning, when David Peterson allowed a solo shot to Altoona’s Beau Sulser. Binghamton evened the score at 1-1 in the bottom of the fourth, when Jason Krizan singled home Ali Sanchez from second. Aside from the solo shot he allowed in the third, Peterson pitched generally pretty well. The tall lefty allowed just the one run on four hits and no walks with seven strikeouts in five innings of work. He departed the game with the score tied after the fifth, and Ryley Gilliam contributed two perfect innings of relief, in which he struck out two-third of the hitters he faced, to keep the game tied at 1-1 going into the bottom of the seventh. Jason Krizan and Barrett Barnes walked back to back to open the bottom of the seventh, and Arismendy Alcantara followed with a single to load the bases. With two outs and the bases loaded in the bottom of the seventh, Patrick Mazeika hit a walk-off grand slam to win the game for the Rumble Ponies 5-1.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (13-25)

AUGUSTA 3, COLUMBIA 2 (BOX)

The Columbia Fireflies struck first in Tuesday evening’s game against the Augusta GreenJackets. Wagner Lagrange doubled to open up the top of the third, and Ronny Mauricio singled him home later in the inning. The GreenJackets took the lead in the bottom of the fourth when Willy Taveras gave up a two-run homer to Augusta’s Frankie Tostado. Columbia tied the game at 2-2 in the next half inning, when Lagrange followed a triple off the bat of Gerson Molina with his second double of the game. The Fireflies were unable to keep the game tied for long. Taveras allowed a solo-shot to Augusta’s Jeffry Parra in the bottom of the fifth to give his team a 3-2 lead that they would not relinquish. The Augusta GreenJackets ultimately defeated the Columbia Fireflies 3-2.
