BINGHAMTON, NY – The Binghamton Rumble Ponies fell to the Bowie Baysox 7-4 in a home run filled affair Thursday night at Mirabito Stadium. Joey Ortiz two-run homer in the seventh inning proved to be the difference and Adley Rutschman’s two-run shot in the ninth provided Bowie (23-8) the insurance they needed.

Binghamton (10-22) had cut the Baysox lead to 5-3 in the eighth inning on Mark Vientos two-run homer, but Rutschman drove the first pitch he saw in the ninth from RHP Jared Robinson over the left field wall to extend the lead back to four runs. All four Binghamton runs were via the long ball. Yoel Romero started the scoring with a solo shot in the third to give the Ponies a 1-0 lead, his first homer of the year. Carlos Cortes hit a solo homer in the ninth, his team-leading sixth of the season to cut the deficit to 7-4.
