Mets’ Peavey mows down Fisher Cats
MANCHESTER — Greg Peavey shut down the New Hampshire offense and Brian Burgamy and Cory Vaughn spurred the offense to lift the Binghamton Mets to a 6-0 win over the Fisher Cats at Northeast Delta Dental Stadium on Wednesday morning.
Binghamton shut out New Hampshire for the third time this season, ended its win streak at two games and salvaged the final game of the three-game set.
Peavey allowed just two singles in a complete game shutout.
“He was throwing strikes, used both sides of the plates and did a good job,” said Fisher Cats manager Bobby Meacham. “He stayed ahead of our hitters and carved us up. We didn’t do a good job executing when he did make mistakes.”
Peavey struck out six and walked none and faced just 29 batters, two over the minimum. The Fisher Cats got both of their singles with two outs and never got a runner to second base.
“It was just impressive,” said Binghamton manager Pedro Lopez. “A nine inning shutout, two hits and just under 100 pitches.”
The Fisher Cats fall to 14-17 and open a four-game series against the Sea Dogs in Portland tonight at 6. Binghamton is 15-14.
The Mets bunched three of their nine hits in the game in the third inning for all the runs they needed.
Xorge Carrillo had a one-out single, Kyle Johnson bunted for a single and second baseman Brian Burgamy drilled a shot down the right field line for a three-run homer.
Dustin Lawley singled to knock in Jayce Boyd in the sixth inning to make it 4-0.
Vaughn’s long two-run homer to center field in the eighth closed out the scoring.
New Hampshire starter Casey Lawrence allowed seven hits and four runs in his six and two-thirds innings.
Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Casey Janssen made his second rehab appearance in the ninth inning for the Fisher Cats and allowed a one-out single and then struck out Darrell Ceciliani and Burgamy to end the inning. . . . New Hampshire third baseman Andy Burns had one of the team’s singles and has reached base in 15 straight games. . . . In roster moves before the game, pitcher Shawn Hill was sent to Triple-A Buffalo and pitcher Randy Boone was put back on the New Hampshire roster from the disabled list.
