PORTLAND, ME – Izzy Wilson’s go-ahead two-run homer in the seventh inning proved to be the difference as the Binghamton Rumble Ponies (23-35, 51-76) fell to the Portland Sea Dogs 5-3 on Thursday night at Hadlock Field.

With the game tied at three in the seventh, after a one out single from Hudson Potts, Wilson hit a two-run homer into the right center field bullpen against Joe Zanghi (2-2). Wilson finished 2-3 with two runs scored and two RBI.

Portland (38-22, 68-61) got on the board first in the bottom of the second on a solo homer from Alex Binelas into the right field seats, his 11th of the year. Binghamton responded in the top of the third with an RBI double from Ronny Mauricio to tie the game at 1. It was Mauricio’s 80th RBI of the season.

After the Sea Dogs scored two in the fifth to take a 3-1 lead, the Ponies once again clawed back in the sixth. With runners on the corners and none out, an errant pickoff throw from Cody Scroggins allowed Mauricio to score from third and Luke Ritter to advance to third to make it a one-run game. Later in the frame, Nic Gaddis drove home Ritter on an RBI single to left center to tie the game at three.

Michael Gettys retired the side in order in the ninth to earn his fifth save of the year. Portland reliever Jacob Wallace (6-2) pitched one and a third scoreless frames to earn the win.

Mauricio was 2-4 with a run scored and a walk while Gaddis finished 2-3 with an RBI, reaching base three times.
