TONIGHT: The Binghamton Rumble Ponies and the Fisher Cats continue their four-game series at NYSEG Stadium.
LAST TIME OUT: Binghamton and New Hampshire split their doubleheader Tuesday. The Ponies won game one 2-0 and lost game two 3-1. In game one, Barrett Barnes plated the first run with an RBI single in the first, and Will Toffey hit a solo homer to lead off the fifth. Kevin Smith allowed just two hits and struck out five to earn the win. In game two, the Fisher Cats scored all three of their runs in the first inning. After a dropped third strike, catcher's interference and an infield single loaded the bases, Cullen Large had an RBI groundout, and Chad Spanberger drove in two with a double. Mickey Jannis was tagged with three unearned runs and struck out a season-high 10 but took the loss. Jason Krizan had a solo homer in the third.
BARNES REACHES 50 RBI: Barrett Barnes drove in his 50th RBI of the season with an RBI single in game one on Tuesday. It was his first RBI since July 26 and just his second since July 16. Barnes is the third Pony to reach that plateau this season.
TOFFEY AGAINST NEW HAMPSHIRE: Following his solo home run in game one of yesterday's doubleheader, Will Toffey has now hit three of his five homers this season against the Fisher Cats. Two were at New Hampshire and one was at NYSEG Stadium.
FIRST SINCE APRIL 15: The Rumble Ponies' win in game one of Tuesday's doubleheader was their first against New Hampshire at home since April 15. The Ponies are 2-5 at NYSEG Stadium against the Fisher Cats and 5-2 on the road.
NO EARNED RUNS: Over the two games of Tuesday's DH, Binghamton pitchers did not give up any earned runs. Smith, Joe Zanghi and Yeizo Campos all had scoreless outings. Jannis was charged with three unearned runs.
PETERSON FACES CATS AGAIN: Ponies starter David Peterson is making his fourth start against the Fisher Cats this season. He is 1-1 with a 2.87 ERA vs. New Hampshire. In his last outing against the Cats, the lefty earned the win with seven strong innings in which allowed two runs on nine hits with no walks and six strike outs in the Ponies' 6-3 victory on 6/18.
LARGE'S THREE-HIT NIGHT: Cullen Large went 3-5 with a double and one RBI over the two games Tuesday. These were his first hits at the Double-A level after being called up from Dunedin (A+) on August 6.
COMING UP: The Rumble Ponies conclude this four-game series with the Fisher Cats Thursday evening at NYSEG Stadium at 6:35PM. RHP Tommy Wilson faces fellow righty Nate Pearson.
