B-Mets Look For Road Win in Bowie Tonight
The Binghamton Mets are coming off a record-setting evening last night when they defeated the Bowie Baysox 3-2 in Bowie, Maryland. With the victory they notched their 83rd win of the season which is a new franchise record. The 1994 Eastern League Championship Team won 82 games in regular-season play.
Closer Jeff Walters fired a 1-2-3 inning in the ninth to preserve the win and earned his 37th save. That pushes him past Tim Lavigne for the most career saves as a B-Met. Lavigne played for the B-Mets from 2002-2005 and again in 2008.
Tonight Mark Cohoon puts his 9-4 record on the line against Bowie's Mike Wright who is 11-2. Heading into the 7:05 contest (airtime at 6:50 PM on News Radio 1290 WNBF and wnbf.com) the B-Mets are 83-53 while Bowie is 68-67.
With last night's victory the B-Mets have 16 wins this month. They lead the Eastern League with a 2.79 ERA in August. This is game three of a four-game series in Bowie. Binghamton returns home to host the New Hampshire Fisher Cats in a four-game series beginning on Friday night at 7:05. The regular season ends on Labor Day with a 1:05 game at NYSEG Stadium.
