Binghamton Mets and Erie SeaWolves Play Marathon Game

The Binghamton Mets and Erie SeaWolves gave over 5,500 fans almost two games for the price of one plus fireworks on a game that began on July 4 and ended on July 5.  The teams played for 5 hours and 26 minutes before Erie captured a 9-6 win in 16 innings at NYSEG Stadium.  The game was four minutes short of the longest game in B-Mets franchise history. It also ties the longest number of innings played in a single game by a Binghamton team.

The SeaWolves were able to score three runs in the 16th inning against Ryan Fraser to earn the win.  With the loss the B-Mets are 50-35 and stand six games behind the Portland Sea Dogs in the race for first place in the Eastern Division of the Eastern League.

Both teams are back at it for a doubleheader tonight.  The first pitch is scheduled for 6:05 (air at 5:50 on News Radio 1290 WNBF).  Left-hander Steven Matz will make the start for manager Pedro Lopez in game one.  Hansel Robles will be on the hill for the nightcap.  David Tyree who helped the New York Giants win a Superbowl Championship will be on hand to greet fans and throw out the first pitch.
