BINGHAMTON, NY – The Binghamton Rumble Ponies (11-25) fell to the Portland Sea Dogs 9-4 on Tuesday evening in the series opener at Mirabito Stadium.

Portland (21-16) raced out to a 5-0 lead highlighted by a four-run second against Ponies starter Josh Walker (2-1). Walker allowed five runs and six hits over 5.2 IP suffering his first loss of the year. He settled down though and at one point retired 10 Portland hitters in a row to keep the Ponies within striking distance. Binghamton scored runs in the third and fourth to make it a 5-2 game on RBI singles from Hayden Senger and Luis Carpio.

With Portland ahead 6-2 in the seventh the Ponies again inched closer with a bases loaded walk to Mark Vientos followed by Quinn Brodey being hit by a pitch to force home another run. That would be the closest Binghamton would get though as Portland tacked on three in the ninth, capped off by a two-run triple from Triston Casas.
