On Monday, the Binghamton Rumble Ponies needed to respond after being swept by Akron in four games coming out of the All-Star break.
After romping Portland 16-2, I’d say they had the proper response.
Could they keep it going Tuesday though as they squared off with the Sea Dogs in a doubleheader?
Bark in the Park Night round two.
A fitting occasion given the opponent.
After lighting up Portland Monday with 16 runs, it looked like Binghamton used up all their offense.
It was a struggle in game one for either team to find the scoreboard.
The Sea Dogs would strike first, but not until the 6th inning.
With two on, Jordan Betts comes through with a double down the left field line.
That brings in Josh Ockimey.
They hold Tate Matheny at third.
Portland goes up 1-0.
Mickey Jannis and Dedgar Jimenez dueled, with Jannis throwing six innings and giving up that one run.
As for Tim Tebow’s hit streak, it came down to his final at bat.
One on, two out, bottom seven, and he goes down swinging.
Tebow goes 0-for-3 and his hit streak ends at 12 games.
Jimenez goes a full seven shutout innings, allowing only two hits.
Portland takes game one of the twin bill, 1-0.
A better view for game two, but more of the same as far as offense goes.
Corey Taylor got the start for the Ponies, going three scoreless innings.
Then, Daniel Zamora followed that up with two more shutout frames before Joshua Torres and Joe Zanghi combined to do the same.
Eventually, in the bottom of the 7th, Joey Terdoslavich would be the hero, hitting a sac fly to right field, scoring Joey Wong.
Binghamton repays Portland with a 1-0 win of their own.
These two meet again for a matinee showdown on Wednesday.
First pitch is at 1:05 pm.
