STARTING PITCHING MATCHUP: RHP Matt Harvey makes his fourth start with the B-Mets in search of his first Double-A win. The right-hander from Connecticut has thrown five innings or fewer in all of his starts with Binghamton. He took a no-decision in his last start against the Portland Sea Dogs. He struck out nine and allowed just two runs on five hits over five innings in game the B-Mets would lose 7-4. Harvey was the seventh over-all pick in last year’s draft by the New York Mets.
RHP Austin Hyatt will make his team-leading 20th start of the season and first against the B-Mets. The Georgia native is on a two-game winning streak, having won his last start against the New Hampshire Fisher Cats on July 18. He allowed just one run on four hits and matched a season-high with 10 strike outs over seven innings. Hyatt was selected by the Phillies in the 15th round of the 2009 draft out of the University of Alabama.
SOMETHING ABOUT THIS CREW: Eric Campbell was ejected by third base umpire Jon Saphire for arguing a call in the field in the third inning last night. It was the 12th ejection of the sea-son for Binghamton. Eight of the 12 ejections have come from this umpiring crew of Saphire (5 ejections), Andy Dudones (3), and Joe Born (0).
HOMERS KEEP COMING: Matt den Dekker’s dinger off B.J. Rosenberg in the fifth inning last night was his fourth in three days and first multi-run homer of the season. Den Dekker has now set a B-Mets season-high by launching at least one home run in three straight games.
NO FREE PASSES: Tobi Stoner, Brad Holt, and Erik Turgeon combined to toss eight innings last night without allowing a walk. It was the sixth time this season, and first since June 7, the B-Mets have not handed out a free pass. They are 3-3 in those games.
