March 24, 2014, PORT ST. LUCIE, FL (ISN) – The Binghamton Mets fell to the Las Vegas 51’s, the New York Mets’ Triple-A affiliate, 9-5, today at the Mets’ Spring Training facility. Due to impending rain, the B-Mets opted to battle their Mets brethren instead of hosting the Springfield Cardinals, their originally-scheduled opponent.
B-Mets infielder Aderlin Rodriguez went 2-for-4 with a double and a two-run homer. Signed as non-drafted free agent in 2008, Rodriguez hit .260 with nine home runs and 41 RBI while splitting time between third base and first base for the St. Lucie Mets (High-A) in 2013.
Following a camp day on Tuesday, the B-Mets return to action on Wednesday against the Jacksonville Suns (Miami Marlins) at 1:00 PM.
The Binghamton Mets spring training schedule consists of twelve games stretching from March 14 to March 28. Players that see action in these spring games are not guaranteed to be on the Binghamton Mets Opening Day roster on April 3.
The B-Mets kick off their 23rd season on Thursday, April 3 against the Akron RubberDucks at NYSEG Stadium at 6:35 PM. Tickets for the 2014 season are on sale now. Visit the B-Mets Box Office during regular business hours or call (607)723-METS to order yours today.
