B-Mets Lose Both Ends Of Double Header In Norwich

The Binghamton Mets were defeated twice by the Norwich Navigators, losing the first game – a completion of Wednesday's suspended game – 4-2, then dropping the second game 2-0.

Norwich already had the first game wrapped up on Wednesday, but torrential rains forced the game to be suspended after just the first inning. The Gators put up three runs in that first inning on a RBI triple from Adam Shabala, a Carlos Valderrama RBI double and an RBI groundout from Mike Cervenak.

All three runs were charged to Joe Cole (3-1), who took the loss despite not even pitching on Thursday. Cole allowed the three runs in one inning, on three hits and a walk. He also struck one batter out.

Pat Hallmark added on the fourth run for the Gators in the second inning with an RBI scoring Carlos Mendoza.

Rodney Nye had three hits for the Mets and also drove in both of their runs, one in the third and one in the ninth.

Kevin Correia (4-3) grabbed the win in relief, lasting five innings and allowing only one run on six hits and two walks while striking out seven. Matt Montgomery notched his 11th save of the season despite allowing a run in the ninth.

In the second game, Norwich's Jack Taschner and RD Spiehs (1-3) combined on a two-hit shutout over seven innings to beat the B-Mets and complete the twinbill sweep. Spiehs picked up the win in relief, pitching three innings of one-hit, two-walk baseball. Taschner pitched four innings of one-hit ball, but did not figure in the decision.

The Gators scored in the first when Valderrama reached home on a passed ball. Cervenak drove in the insurance run in the fourth with a single.

Jason Scobie (2-4) pitched well, but got no offensive help and was charged with a loss. He pitched five innings, allowing just one earned run on four hits while striking out four.

The B-Mets started this road trip by dropping the series with Portland three games to one. Next, they travel to Portland for a three-game series with the Sea Dogs. Game one is Friday at 7:00 pm at Hadlock Field.
