The B-Mets jumped out to an early 1-0 lead in the first inning, then made it 2-0 in the second on a solo homerun off the bat of Marvin Seale, his second of the season. But the bats really exploded in the third inning when the B-Mets put up five runs, to be followed by a three-run fourth inning.
Seale struck again with a two-RBI double in that inning, giving him three RBI for the evening. Brian Shipp and Mike Jacobs each chipped in a pair of RBI and Rodney Nye and John Wilson each contributed one in the Mets effort.
By the time the dust settled in the fifth inning, the B-Mets had put up ten runs against New Haven pitchers and had finally given Seibel the run support he has so sorely lacked this season.
The B-Mets teed off on David Abbott (0-1), who was charged with the loss. Abbott started and lasted just three innings for the Ravens, allowing seven runs - six earned - on seven hits and a trio of walks while striking out two. Abbott's relief wasn't much better, Hugo Castellano allowed three more runs over four innings.
Nick Mattioni was credited with the three-inning save, his fourth of the season. Mattioni allowed the lone Ravens run - an RBI single off the bat of Dominic Rich in the seventh - on two hits and a walk, while fanning three.
The Mets have now won three straight games and are back in third place in the Eastern League's North Division. New Haven has lost four in a row, and eight of their last nine.
Jason Scobie (2-2, 3.34) takes the hill for the B-Mets in the last game of this four-game series on Thursday at 10:30 am. He is scheduled to face New Haven's Dave Gassner (2-2, 3.32).
