Back to the grind…Trenton returned home on Friday for a four-game (in three day) series against the Binghamton Mets in what is being called the “mini” subway series. Ivan Nova (pictured) was absolutely brilliant in his start as the right-hander tossed eight shutout innings and scattered three hits with one walk and eight strikeouts in a 1-0 Trenton victory. Nova earned his fifth victory of the season. Not much in terms of highlights, here is what I threw together….
BOTTOM 1st – Noah Hall hits his second home run of the season, a solo shot over the left field wall to give Trenton a 1-0 lead.
TOP 9th – One day after givnig up a walk-off grand slam and a blown save against the Reading Phillies, closer Amaury Sanit jumps right back on the horse and pitches a 1-2-3 9th inning to earn his 7th save of the season.

…back with more tomorrow as Trenton and Binghamton continue their series with a day/night doubleheader.
