Binghamton Rumble Ponies starter Nabil Crismatt had his no-hit bid broken up on Thursday night with one out in the sixth inning on an infield single by Vladimir Guerrero Jr.

Crismatt would load the bases in the sixth inning but got a double play to end the threat and his night against the New Hampshire Fisher Cats. New Hampshire came into the game with a league leading .788 OPS.

The right-hander allowed only one run in six innings on three hits, three walks and struck out seven. He threw 97 pitches with 59 of them for strikes.

Crismatt, 23, lowered his season ERA to 2.80 and made his fifth start of the season going at least six innings and allowing one run or less.

The Rumble Ponies won 11-1 behind four hits from Jeff McNeil including his third straight game with a homer. Peter Alonso was on base four times and Kevin Taylor blasted two home runs.
