BINGHAMTON (WBNG) — A short night for Rumble Ponies pitcher David Peterson would result in a game one, 9-5 loss to the Akron RubberDucks.
The RubberDucks jumped on Peterson early, scoring seven runs across the first two innings. Akron’s Wilson Garcia led his team with five RBI, including a three-run home run in the second inning to end Peterson’s night.

The Rumble Ponies offense showed signs of life in the fourth inning. Barrett Barnes and Will Toffey each added two-run doubles to get out of the hole, but that was all the offense could muster.
Rumble Ponies – 5 (10-8), RubberDucks – 5 (12-12)
