Fisher Cats lose 6-2; to end season with Labor Day matinee

BINGHAMTON, N.Y. - Lance Zawadzki belted his first home run as a member of the Blue Jays organization, but the Binghamton Mets (86-54) rallied to beat the Fisher Cats (67-72), 6-2, on Sunday evening.
The loss is the third straight for New Hampshire as the team gets ready for its final game of the year on Monday afternoon.
Zawadzki's home run came with the Fisher Cats trailing 1-0 in the top of the fifth inning. Binghamton starter Logan Verrett gave up a lead-off single to begin the inning, snapping a stretch where he retired 12 in a row. After a strikeout, Zawadzki followed with a first-pitch home run to right field to put New Hampshire on top, 2-1. The homer not only gave the Fisher Cats the lead, but it snapped the their scoreless streak at 19.1 innings. Binghamton rallied to take the lead an inning later. Marcus Walden allowed a lead-off single, and then Eastern League MVP Allan Dykstra followed with his 21st home run to put the Mets back in front at 3-2.
Walden (L; 6-14) took the loss in his final start of the season. He tossed another quality start, giving up just two earned runs (three total) over six innings. In 26 starts in 2013, the righty tossed 162.1 innings, the most in the Eastern League.
Binghamton's Jim Fuller (W; 3-2) earned the victory for the first-place Mets by tossing two scoreless innings of relief. His victory was assured when Chad Beck returned to the Fisher Cats roster and allowed three runs (two earned) on a hit, two walks, a hit batter, and two sacrifice flies in the bottom of the seventh.
Zawadzki's homer highlighted the Fisher Cats' six-hit effort. Ryan Schimpf and Kenny Wilson each added a pair of hits while Jon Talley smacked a double in the eighth inning.
The Fisher Cats will now play the final game fo the season on Monday afternoon at 1:05 p.m. RHP Marcus Stroman (8-5, 3.47) takes the ball against Binghamton's Mark Cohoon (9-4, 4.00).
