What a difference a day makes.
On Monday, the Binghamton Rumble Ponies romped the Portland Sea Dogs 16-2.
Then, on Tuesday, the teams manufactured only two runs over the course of two, seven-inning games.
That brought about the series finale on Wednesday afternoon.
This is the last time these two meet until the final series of the year for Binghamton beginning August 31st.
Super Splash Day at NYSEG Wednesday, and no one was safe from getting sprayed, either from above or below.
For the third-straight game, not much of splash scoring-wise.
In the first though, Josh Ockimey lets one fly.
One hopper to the wall in right.
Jantzen Witte rounding third, going to try and score, and he barely beats that throw.
Jose Garcia doesn’t think so.
But it’s 1-0 Portland.
To the 2nd, and Tim Tebow getting back to his hitting ways.
He sends one deep to left-center, just missing out on a home run.
Instead, he settles for a double.
Next batter, and Joey Wong with a single to right.
In comes Tebow to score and we’re knotted up at one.
In the 4th now, runner at third and Jhon Nunez squeaks one into right.
That brings home Jordan Betts.
That put the Sea Dogs up for good.
From there, Portland pitching would shut down the Ponies, with Binghamton going 1-for-8 with runners in scoring position.
Portland hands Binghamton their 50th loss of the season as with a 2-1 win.
After the game, Ponies skipper Luis Rojas spoke about his team’s lack of clutch hitting.
“Even though (Scott) Copeland today walked a couple of guys that hurt him for the runs that he gave up. But, quality start, seven strong innings, and our offense couldn’t respond. We had a couple of chances to score and we just didn’t get that big hit,” Rojas said.
The Ponies will begin a four-game series with the Trenton Thunder on Thursday.
First pitch at NYSEG is set for 6:35 pm.
