Game of the Day – BMets vs. Sea Dogs – Binghamton starting pitcher Brad Holt is the Mets third best pitching prospect according to Baseball America, while Sea Dogs starter Brock Huntzinger doesn’t even crack the Red Sox Top 30 pitching prospects. Holt has allowed 1 earned run over 18 innings of work in 2011; Huntzinger has allowed 12 runs over 11 1/3 innings. Holt has 14 Ks; Huntzinger 4. Opponents are hitting only .138 versus Holt while Huntzinger has been battered to the tune of a .373 opponent BA. Holt doesn’t have a win yet, Huntzinger has 1! Advantage Huntzinger…hopefully for the Sea Dogs sake as both of these teams have identical 6-9 records and sit in the basement of the EL’s Eastern Division. The Dogs are hoping to keep the BMets road woes (3-7) rolling and take a step closer to the front door.
