6:35pm - Binghamton vs. New Hampshire


LAST GAME: The B-Mets collected eight hits, but no more than one in any inning in a 4-0 loss to the New Hampshire Fisher Cats last night at NYSEG Stadium. Binghamton’s league-leading third shutout loss snapped their season-best four-game winning streak. Zack Wheeler battled through command issues to put up five scoreless innings in a no-decision. The righty matched a career-high by issuing six walks. New Hampshire broke the tie in the sixth by pounding reliever Erik Turgeon for three runs on three hits. Chad Jenkins perfectly scattered six hits over six scoreless innings to end his second win. Mike McDade added a solo home run, his first of the season, in the ninth. Ronald Uviedo worked a perfect ninth to close out the win.

STARTING PITCHING MATCHUP: LHP Darin Gorski (2-0, 1.13) makes this fourth start of the season and first against the Fisher Cats. The southpaw hurled six shutout innings to earn the win in his previous start against the Portland Sea Dogs on April 19. He allowed just one hit and struck out four. It was the second time in his Double-A career he has given up one hit over six scoreless frames. He spent all of last year with the St. Lucie Mets (High-A) and was named the Florida State League pitcher of the year. Gorski won the Sterling Organizational Award as the top pitcher in the New York Mets’ farm system.

RHP Deck McGuire (1-2, 5.94) takes the ball for the fourth time and second consecutive against the B-Mets. McGuire baffled Binghamton through 6.2 scoreless innings in Manchester on April 18 for his first win. McGuire struck out three and allowed just three hits. McGuire was selected by the Toronto Blue Jays in the 1st round as the 11th overall pick in the 2010 draft out of Georgia Tech. Last year, his first pro season, he made 18 starts with Dunedin (High-A) before making three starts with New Hampshire to close the season.
