shy of suffering their third shutout loss of the season, the B-Mets cracked the scoreboard when Cesar Puello blasted a 1-1 offering from Ian Krol over the left-field wall for his first homer of the season. Krol then walked Francisco Pena and hit Wilfredo Tovar with an 0-2 pitch to put the tying run on base. Aaron Barrett entered and struck out pinch-hitter Joe Bonfe to end the game and earn his fifth save. Harrisburg starter Blake Treinen (3-3) tossed seven scoreless innings.

Josh Johnson brought him home with an infield single. Jerad Head followed with another single and Justin Bloxom gave Harrisburg a 3-0 lead with a two-run double. DeGrom (0-3) did cap his fourth start as a B-Met with five additional scoreless frames. After Treinen’s departure, the B-Mets nearly got on the board in the eighth against reliever Neil Holland.
