ERIE — Binghamton shortstop T.J. Rivera made a sliding stop and threw to second base to record the final out as the Mets got out of a bases-loaded jam in the ninth inning to pull out a 5-4 win over the Erie SeaWolves Sunday at Jerry Uht Park.
Binghamton (57-38) led 5-4 heading to the bottom of the ninth inning as former SeaWolves (44-51) reliever Cody Satterwhite came in to pitch for the Mets. After getting two quick outs, Daniel Fields walked, Devon Travis singled and Ramon Cabrera walked to put the tying run at third base and the winning run at second.
Corey Jones then hit a hard grounder up the middle and Rivera made a tremendous defensive play to throw out Cabrera by inches at second base and end the game.
Guido Knudson (0-4) took the loss allowing two runs on three hits with no walks and two strikeouts in three innings.
Warwick Saupold took the no-decision allowing three runs, one earned, on six hits with four walks and three strikeouts in six innings.
The two teams will play one more on Monday night — a buck night special — before the Eastern League all-star break. That game is Tuesday in Altoona.
