Two batters later, Cory Vaughn singled home Binghamton’s final run. Given a nine-run cushion, Lara struggled. With two aboard, Dean Green put Erie on the board with an RBI double. Martinez and Jamie Johnson followed with run-scoring singles. Lara pitched himself deeper into a hole with a pair of two-out walks, including a bases-loaded free pass to Eugenio Suarez. Aaron Westlake ended Lara’s day, and made it a three-run game, with a two-run single. Jack Leathersich entered and recorded the inning's final out. Leathersich returned for the fifth and slipped into and then out of a jam. The SeaWolves put the first three aboard via an error, hit batter and walk. With the tying run on base, the southpaw wiggled free with a strikeout, a pop out and a groundout. Jon Velasquez (1-2) then posted two perfect relief innings. Cody Satterwhite tossed a scoreless eighth. Chasen Bradford worked a perfect ninth for his fourth save. Box

Mets News and Notes: Second Series, In Philly, Niese, Wright's Sacrifice, Turner, Familia, Binghamton

Mets News and Notes:

The Mets won their second consecutive series, taking two of three from the Phillies. Their five-game winning streak in Philadelphia was snapped with Wednesday's loss. It was the longest single-season win streak by the Mets in Philadelphia since they won five straight in 1972.

The Mets finished the Philadelphia portion of the season series with a 7-2 record at Citizens Bank Park. That fell one win shy of matching their most in a season in the City of Brotherly Love. In 1972, the Mets went 8-1 at Veterans Stadium, the Phillies' former home.

Yesterday Mets Pitcher Jon Niese was charged with three runs in six innings while trying to overcome the flu.

"Right now I pretty much just have a cough," Niese said. "I'm just hacking up some stuff. I really didn't feel like I had much energy out there today. I just battled through it. I had to execute pitches when I needed to. You know going in that you're not going to have it, but it's one of those things where you've got to get it done."

David Wright's sacrifice fly in Tuesday's win gave him 58 for his career, tying Ed Kranepool's club record.

It was the seventh time in his career that Wright tied a game with a sacrifice fly, tying Lee Mazzilli for the most-game-tying sacrifice flies in Mets history. He already has the most go-ahead sacrifice flies with 18, one more Kranepool.

Wally Named Binghamton AA Manager

Wally Backman was officially named the manager of the Double-A Binghamton Mets yesterday. It was a move that had been expected and comes only a day after Tim Teufel was officially named the manager of the Triple-A Buffalo Bisons.
“It’s exciting to be with the Mets,” Backman said in the Press Release. “It was almost like a homecoming coming back to the Mets last year. Being traded for the first time, takes a piece of you. I would say my heart never left New York.”
The B-Mets also announced Monday that they have promoted former Class A Savannah pitching coach Marc Valdes to the same role with Binghamton, and that they will retain Luis Natera as hitting coach.
Here is how the staffs shape up so far for the top two affiliates in the Mets organization.

I am glad to see the Mets have kept him in the organization and I still hope Wally Backman will get his shot at the MLB level... Go Mets!!
