Senators Split Two with Binghamton

Harrisburg wins game one 4-2

The Senators and Binghamton Mets split their doubleheader on Tuesday night in Binghamton with the Sens winning game one 4-2 and the B-Mets 3-2 in ten innings in game two. With the split the Senators are 59-50 on the season and move one-half game behind the Altoona Curve.

The Senators produced most of their offense in the doubleheader in the first inning of game one. They have four straight hits to plate three runs to take a 3-0 lead. Neftali Soto drove in a run with a double and Drew Ward drove in two with a single.

With the score 3-1 in the fifth, the Senators scored a run on a wild pitch making the score 4-1. Binghamton scored a run in the bottom of the fifth courtesy of two Senators errors. But that was all they would score off Michael Brady, who earned the win. Andrew Robinson pitched a scoreless seventh for the save.

The Senators jumped out 1-0 in game two on a single by Jose Marmolejos but Binghamton came back with two runs in the first. The Senators had a one-out double in the third, a leadoff double in the fourth and a leadoff double in the sixth, but didn’t score in any of those situations. They did tie the game when Adrian Sanchez doubled leading off the fifth and he eventually scored on a sacrifice fly by Andrew Stevenson.

The game remained 2-2 into the tenth when the B-Mets had runners on first and second and two outs when Jayce Boyd hit a bounce up the middle that Khayyan Norfork fielded but threw away at second base allowing the winning run to score from third.

Stevenson and Ward both had two hits in game one. The Senators pitching allowed just three earned runs in the two games.

Game three of the series is Wednesday at 6:35 p.m.  The game can be heard on Fox Sports 1460 beginning with the Matt LeCroy show at 6:20 p.m. The game is also available through iHeart Radio and through the Tune In app.
