TONIGHT: The Rumble Ponies open up a 3-game series against the Altoona Curve with a doubleheader tonight, with first pitch of Game 1 at 5:35PM. The Ponies have dropped their first two games of this 6-game homestand. Both Sunday's series finale against the New Hampshire Fisher Cats and Monday's game against the Curve were postponed due to inclement weather.
GONZALEZ NAMED EL PITCHER OF THE WEEK: Monday, the Eastern League announced Right handed Pitcher Harol Gonzalez has been named the Eastern League Pitcher of the Week (5/6-5/12). Gonzalez pitched six and two third no-hit frames Wednesday night against the Senators and combined with Ryder Ryan to pitch the first Binghamton no-hitter in nearly 13 years (7/23/06).
MORE HAROL: Gonzalez allowed only two baserunners via walks and struck out six in Harrisburg . He is now 3-0 on the year with a 2.88 ERA. He is slated to take the mound Wednesday night in his first start since throwing the no-hitter.
GAME 2 STARTER: LHP David Peterson makes the start in Game 2 of today's doubleheader. In his last two starts, both no-decisions, he has not allowed more than 1 earned run and has gone at least 5 innings. The Ponies have gone on to win both of those contests.
MAZEIKA MASHING: Ponies catcher Patrick Mazeika had a game-tying two-run homer Saturday in the 8th inning against the Fisher Cats. He finished 2-4, with 2 RBI to extend his season-long hitting streak to 11 games. It is also the longest hitting streak this year amongst any member of the Rumble Ponies.
KAY'S ON A ROLL: The Rumble Ponies send LHP Anthony Kay to the hill tonight. Kay is coming off another excellent start Tuesday night in Harrisburg, in which he allowed only 1 run and 4 hits over 7 innings, going to 3-2 on the year in Binghamton's 3-1 win. Kay has not allowed more than one run over his last four starts, going at least five and a third frames each time.
WELCOMING THE CURVE: This is the first meeting this season between the Curve and the Rumble Ponies. Last season, Altoona was 8-1 against Binghamton. The Curve finished with a 78-60 record record in 2018, winning their second straight Western Division title. They fell in the opening round of the Eastern League playoffs to the Akron RubberDucks in four games.
MORNING BASEBALL!: The Rumble Ponies close out their five-game homestand Wednesday morning against the Curve. Start time for Wednesday is 10:35AM, as it is "Baseball in Education" day at NYSEG Stadium.
