MANCHESTER, N.H.  The Binghamton Rumble Ponies leave Manchester with a sweep on the back of a masterful pitching performance from Tommy Wilson, defeating the New Hampshire Fisher Cats, 4-2.

Wilson allowed just four hits in six innings of work, with New Hampshire’s two runs coming off a first-pitch RBI double from Santiago Espinal in the sixth, a pitch on the edge of the zone that proved to be his only real mistake of the night.

Still, his teammates provided more than enough offense up to that point. Ali Sanchez kicked things off with an RBI single in the first, bringing home Andres Gimenez.

Gimenez scored again in the second, the second run of the inning after Quinn Brodey came across the plate following a Jon Harris wild pitch.

Harris would not last past the second, but Binghamton added another run, this one in the fifth off a double from Sanchez.

New Hampshire grabbed a few walks after their pair of runs in the sixth, but couldn’t manage another hit, squandering three perfect innings to close the game from relievers Vinny Nittoli and Danny Young.

Harris was the loser, falling to 1-1 while Wilson went up to 1-3 with the victory.

Joseph Shaw earned his first Eastern League save after recording the final two outs for Binghamton.

Sanchez finished 3-for-4 on the day with Brodey also collecting two hits for the visitors.

Thursday brings the Trenton Thunder, with Trenton’s Garrett Whitlock (3-2, 2.87 ERA) taking the mound for Trenton against New Hampshire’s Nate Pearson (0-1, 2.70 ERA).
