After sweeping Bowie at Prince George's Stadium for the first time since 2010, the Erie SeaWovles are heading home with a 7-3 record and will begin a six-game homestand with a familiar foe, the Binghamton Rumble Ponies. A week ago, the SeaWolves set out for NYSEG Stadium, but were only able to get one game of four in, due to weather and field conditions. Tonight, the lone starter to throw in Binghamton, Alex Faedo, will take the hill after tossing 6.0 innings allowing two runs while striking out eight in a no-decision at Binghamton. He will be opposed by Harol Gonzalez, who is making his first start of 2019 after 2.1 innings of scoreless relief in the Rumble Ponies 4-3 walk-off win against the SeaWolves on 4/11.
