Binghamton Mets Try For Another Win Against Akron
The Binghamton Mets are hoping their top pitcher can duplicate the work of another outstanding prospect as the B-Mets host the Akron Aeros tonight at 635 PM (air at 6:20 PM on News Radio 1290 WNBF). Logan Verrett will start on the mound for the B-Mets against the Aeros' Paolo Espino. Verrett has a record of 5-1 and an ERA of 3:04.
Last night another top prospect in the B-Mets rotation, Rafael Montero, pitched six solid innings givng up two runs, striking out six and earning his fourth win of the season. Akron jumped out to an early two- run lead but Binghamton battled back to take the decision 5-2.
With the win the B-Mets move to 20-18 on the year while the Aeros drop to 19-19. B-Mets closer Jeff Walters earned his tenth save of the season and leads the Eastern League in that department. Binghamton batters banged out 14 hits...a season-high.
