Binghamton took an early 3-0 lead and piled on the ‘pen late as they defeated Harrisburg, 5-2. Paolo Espino gave up just two hits over five innings, but walked and hit a batter before serving up a homer in the 2nd to lose his second straight start. Matt Skole’s 2014 home run drought also ended with a solo shot in the 4th. The Sens pulled within one at 3-2 in the 7th on a Ricky Hague RBI double but
Sean Nicol’s second single couldn’t plate Hague to tie the game. Tyler Herron gave up two in the 8th to give the B-Mets breathing room. Harrisburg went in order in the 9th to lose for the second time in three games.

Ian Dickson recovered from the early damage to toss five scoreless frames for a total of three runs on five hits and one walk over six innings. He struck out four but did not receive the decision. That went to Matthew Spann who was victimized by Pelican DH-to-be Joey Gallo for a two-run HR in the 8th. Derek Self stranded two inherited runners and pitched a scoreless ninth for his first save of ’14. Shawn Pleffner drove in the tying and go-ahead runs while going 3-for-4 with a double and three RBI to lead the P-Nats attack, followed closely by Randolph Oduber’s single, double, walk, and three runs scored in four PAs.
