Games #61 • Tuesday, June 12, 2012
NYSEG Stadium • Binghamton, NY • 6:35 PM
LAST GAME: The B-Mets were one out away from securing their first road series sweep of the season, but Shane Brown ripped a two-run single in the bottom of the tenth to give the Trenton Thunder a 3-2 walk-off victory Sunday afternoon at Waterfront Park. The B-Mets had taken a one-run lead in the top of the tenth on a throwing error by Jose Pirela and looked to Adrian Rosario to lock down the save. The righty got two quick outs before allowing a single, issuing a walk and uncorking a wild pitch. Brown ripped a 2-0 pitch into left to give Trenton the walk-off win. Lee Hyde allowed one unearned run over two innings to earn the win. Rosario suffered his first loss and blown save as a B-Met. Binghamton plated their first run when Matt den Dekker scored on a wild pitch by starter Brett Marshall in the fourth inning.
STARTING PITCHING MATCHUP: LHP Mark Cohoon (3-5, 3.92) makes his eleventh start of the season and first against the Reading Phillies. Cohoon took the no-decision in his last start versus the Harrisburg Senators on June 5. The lefty allowed five runs on seven hits over six innings. He did not walk a batter and struck out five. A 12th-round pick in the June 2008 draft by the Mets, the southpaw is in his fifth season of pro baseball. It’s his third year with the B-Mets.
RHP Jonathan Pettibone (5-5, 3.79) makes his 13th start of the season and second against the B-Mets. The California native earned the win in his previous start against the Altoona Curve on June 6. He allowed two runs and scattered seven hits over seven innings. The righty struck out three and did not issue a walk for the third time this season. Pettibone was tagged for eight runs (seven earned) on seven hits over six innings in a loss versus the B-Mets on May 31. Selected in the third round as a supplemental pick in the 2008 draft out of Esperanza HS (Yorba Linda, CA), Pettibone is in his fifth pro season. He went 10-11 with a 2.96 ERA with the Clearwater Threshers (High-A) last year. He tied for the team lead with 27 starts.
