AA: Altoona Curve (53-59) @ Binghamton Mets (70-43) Listen-Alt Audio
Tuesday 5:35 ET – LHP Eliecer Navarro (3-4, 4.06) vs. LHP Jon Niese (rehab)
Tues. Game Two – LHP Zack Dodson (0-0, 0.00) vs. LHP Mark Cohoon (6-3, 4.57)
The second game is to make up for the July 2nd postponement when Altoona didn’t feel like playing two…
Eliecer Navarro held the B-Mets to 1 run on 5 hits and 3 walks while striking out 9 over 7 IP on Aug 1st.
Zach Dodson is set to make his AA debut after 17 starts in the FSL
Mark Cohoon ..faced Altoona on July 30th, allowing 2 runs on 7 hits over 5.1 IP, striking out 4 and walking 2.
Jon Niese was expected to make a rehab start for the Cyclones tonight, but instead takes game one with Binghamton . For his final tune up facing more advanced hitters, pitching to d’Arnaud, and helping the B-Mets who have another double dip on Friday, makes more sense.
Brett Gerritse is set to make his 5th start of the year, in 72 IP overall he has struck out 77 and walked 28.
Gabriel Ynoa finished July with a 3.68 ERA in 5 starts allowing 45 base runners in 29.1 IP. He’s already thrown 33.1 IP more than he did for the Cyclones last year.
