B-Mets Shut Down By Jays' Top Prospect

Dustin McGowan, the top prospect in the Toronto Blue Jays organization, stifled the B-Mets offense for six dazzling innings and the Ravens scored three in the first inning to beat Binghamton 4-1.

McGowan (1-0) more than earned a victory in his first start at the double-A level. The right-hander pitched six innings of one-hit ball against the B-Mets, walking a batter and striking out seven. The only baserunners he allowed came on a second inning single from Mike Jacobs and he hit Brian Shipp with a pitch.

Matt Peterson (0-1) also made his first start at the AA level, but his was less successful. After being called up from single-A St. Lucie, Peterson allowed four runs on nine hits and five walks in five innings. He also struck out six Ravens batters.

P.J. Bevis pitched three scoreless innings in relief and struck out two batters. Bevis has now struck out 55 batters in just 38 1/3 innings.

Dominic Rich got the Ravens on the board in the first inning with a two-RBI single that scored Jorge Sequea – who had three hits in the game – and John Ford-Griffin. Matt Logan followed Rich's single with one of his own – part of this three-hit performance – that scored Shawn Fagan to give the Ravens a quick 3-0 lead.

In the fourth, Gabe Gross drove home Justin Singleton to put New Haven up by four, as McGowan cruised.

Binghamton finally got on the board in the eighth inning when Marvin Seale connected on his third homerun of the season, a solo shot off of Hugo Castellanos that capped the scoring.

Juan Pena pitched a perfect ninth inning for New Haven to pick up his second save of the year and end the game.

Binghamton and New Haven play the second and third games of their four-game set on Tuesday in a double header. Lenny Dinardo (0-1, 4.15) and Tyler Yates (0-0, 0.00) – making his Binghamton debut – will pitch for the B-Mets.
