Binghamton Mets Looking To Close Gap With Sea Dogs
The Binghamton Mets are looking to get their game back tonight when they meet the Sea Dogs in Portland, Maine. That is....the game they lost in the Eastern Division standings to the first-place Sea Dogs. Portland has a 4.5 game lead over the B-Mets heading into tonight's 7 PM game (air at 6:45 on News Radio 1290 WNBF).
All-Star Brian Burgamy and Brandon Nimmo hit home runs for the B-Mets in a 6-4 loss last night. Tonight, Rainy Lara makes his 14th start of the season for Binghamton. He is 4-3 with an ERA of 4.73. He'll be opposed by Luis Diaz who is 3-2 with a 2.73 ERA.
Hadlock Field, the home of the Sea Dogs, has been a tough venue for the B-Mets. Portland is 7-1 in games played there this season. The three-game series concludes tomorrow night in a 6 PM game with southpaw Steven Matz opposing Portland's Mike Augliera. Augliera is a former standout for Binghamton University.
