Binghamton Drops Final Game At Reading

The Reading Phillies' Garry Maddox homered off of Neal Musser (1-4) to lead off the bottom of the first inning and the Phillies never looked back. Binghamton dropped the final game of their three-game series with Reading by a final score of 4-2, taking a loss in the series two games to one.

Neal Musser, who started Friday's washout against the Phillies, gave the B-Mets five strong innings, allowing just two runs on five hits while striking out five. But Musser, who has been victimized by the B-Mets offense, received very little run support and was charged with the loss.

Binghamton managed just two runs, on run-scoring singles from Jeff Duncan and John Wilson in fourth and ninth innings.

In the ninth, Binghamton loaded the bases with nobody out against W Glen. But Ryan Hutchison came on and slammed the door to notch his third save of the season.

Juan Richardson launched his Eastern League-leading 15th homerun off of B-Mets reliever Nick Maness in the sixth inning that put his team up 3-1. The R-Phils tacked on an insurance run in the eighth inning to give them a 4-1 lead.

Ian Harvey (4-0) picked up the win in relief, throwing three innings of two-hit shutout ball and striking out three.

Ryan Carter started for Reading and allowed just one run on four hits and a walk through four innings. Carter struck out four Mets.

Binghamton next heads over to New Haven for a four-game series with the Ravens over a course of three days. Game one is Monday at 6:35 pm.
