B-Mets 5, Springfield 4

The Binghamton Mets 2008 Pitcher of the Year, Jose Sanchez threw five innings of four hit baseball and added an RBI single of his own to lead the B-Mets to a 5-4 win over the Springfield Cardinals in St. Lucie, Florida on Sunday. Sanchez struck out seven batters while only allowing one run during his time on the mound. He relieved Starting Pitcher Ryan Coultas who only allowed two hits over four innings. Coultas' biggest threat came in the 3rd inning when he surrendered three runs. Only two of those runs were earned. He struck out five batters while only walking two.

2007 B-Mets MVP Mark Kiger, who rejoins the Mets organization after a year with the Seattle Mariners, capped his 2-4 day with a double in the 8th inning to drive home Right Fielder Frank Diaz. Diaz placed himself in scoring position with a two out double, his second hit of the game. Kiger, the Mets Third Baseman, had an RBI double in the 7th inning as well.

Left Fielder Caleb Stewart added to the Mets three run 7th inning with a solo home run. He finished the game 1-4. Shortstop Ruben Tejada, Second Baseman Emmanuel Garcia and Catcher Josh Thole all went 1-3 in the game. Thole's RBI double in the 4th inning put the Mets on the scoreboard
