BRIDGEWATER, NJ – Ronny Mauricio crushed a go-ahead three-run home run in the tenth inning as the Binghamton Rumble Ponies defeated the Somerset Patriots 14-9 in a comeback victory in the series opener Tuesday night at TD Bank Ballpark. Mauricio finished 3-6 with three RBI and three runs scored.

With the game tied at nine entering extra innings and the designated runner on second, Brett Baty walked, setting up runners on first and second. That set up Mauricio, who demolished a 3-1 pitch from Tanner Myatt (1-1) to right. The Ponies would tack on two more in the frame on an error and Zach Ashford RBI single to cap off the five-run frame.

The Rumble Ponies (8-19, 36-60) were trailing 8-4 after six innings. In the seventh, they cut into the deficit on a wild pitch that scored Mauricio from third and a Nick Meyer RBI single that cut the Somerset (16-11, 60-36) lead to two.

Down 8-6 in the ninth, Mauricio led off the inning with a double to center. Two batters later, Johneshwy Fargas drove him home with an RBI single to left to make it 8-7. Luke Ritter then drilled an RBI double down the left field line that scored Fargas from first. Later in the inning, Wyatt Young hit an RBI single to center to put Binghamton up 9-8.

Somerset would tie the game at nine in the bottom of the ninth on a two-out RBI single from Blake Perkins. Perkins would finish 3-5 with a pair of two-run home runs and five RBI. Dedniel Núñez (1-0) pitched a scoreless tenth to seal the victory.

The two teams continue their series on Wednesday morning with first pitch at 11:05 AM and pregame coverage beginning at 10:50 AM on CBS Sports Radio 1360.
