Binghamton 3, Bowie 2
After playing both catcher and right field, Blake Forsythe blasted a leadoff, walk-off home run in the bottom of the tenth inning to push the Binghamton Mets past the Bowie Baysox, 3-2 on Monday night at NYSEG Stadium. The victory was Binghamton’s fifth walk-off win, and it dropped the magic number to win the Eastern Division to 2.
The first five innings went scoreless for both teams, but they did not go without some trouble for Binghamton. Wilfredo Tovar was removed from the game after sliding into second base in the third inning, forcing Alonzo Harris to play second base for the first time in over a year. One inning later, Cory Vaughn left the game after being hit in the back of the helmet by a pitch from Devin Jones. After Vaughn’s exit, Forsythe went from behind the plate and into right field. By the fifth inning, only two of Binghamton’s eight starting position players were in their original spots.
