SeaWolves Drop Game Two in Binghamton 3-0
The SeaWolves dropped their first contest of the second half as they were shutout by the Binghamton Rumble Ponies, 3-0, in game two of a doubleheader on Monday night.

Binghamton added to the lead in the fifth. Luis Carpio led off with a walk and moved to second on a sacrifice bunt. Shore walked Gimenez with two outs to bring Krizan back to the plate with two on base. Krizan doubled off the wall in left for a 3-0 Ponies advantage.
A trio of Rumble Ponies pitchers, Joe Zanghi, Ryder Ryan and Stephen Villines limited the SeaWolves to just two hits in the defeat. Luke Burch singled with two outs in the third and Sergio Alcantara singled to lead off the sixth. Erie did not have a baserunner reach third.
Ryan (1-1) earned the win tossing two frames, allowing one hit with no walks and a strikeout while Villines earned his fourth save working a 1-2-3 seventh.
