BINGHAMTON, NY – A four-run seventh inning highlighted by a go-ahead two-run single from Carlos Cortes propelled the Binghamton Rumble Ponies (21-35) to a 7-4 win over the New Hampshire Fisher Cats (27-29) in the finale of a 12-game homestand and final day of “Play Ball” and “Players Takeover” weekend.

Fisher Cats reliever Thomas Ruwe (0-1) walked three batters in the seventh ahead 4-3 and Carlos Cortes ripped a two-run single to left scoring Francisco Alvarez and Brett Baty which gave the Ponies a 5-4 lead.
