BINGHAMTON, N.Y. – The Portland Sea Dogs brought their offensive struggles with them to Binghamton for the start of a week-long trip.

The Sea Dogs managed one hit over the first seven innings Thursday night and lost 6-0 to the Mets.

Darin Gorski, Elvin Ramirez and Armando Rodriguez combined on a three-hitter for Binghamton.

Gorski gave up one hit, striking out four and walking two in six innings. Ramirez fanned four and allowed a hit and a walk in two innings. Rodriguez got help from a double play in the ninth.

“We faced tough arms tonight,” Sea Dogs Manager Kevin Boles said. “Gorski did a great job commanding the zone from both sides of the plate.

“Then Ramirez came in. That’s a power arm and a quality guy. It seemed like those guys were both effective and we got a little off-balance tonight.”

Gorski, last year’s Florida State League pitcher of the year who was named the top pitcher in the New York Mets’ farm system, improved to 2-0. He had a no-decision Saturday in a previous meeting with Billy Buckner of Portland in a game the Sea Dogs won, 5-3.

“I just tried to throw strikes, get ahead and put guys away,” Gorski said.

Gorski had three 1-2-3 innings, allowed one walk in two other innings, and got a grounder with runners on the corners in the second after Ronald Bermudez produced the only hit against him.

The Sea Dogs are the only team in the Eastern League averaging fewer than three runs per game, and also have the league’s worst record at 4-11.

“You stick with your routines,” Boles said. “Our guys are working hard. We’re getting quality work in. It will turn.

“This is the early part of the season. I think you will see the offensive numbers pick up.”

While the Sea Dogs struggled, the Mets scored in four straight innings from the third to the sixth.

Travis Ozga went 3 for 4 with two runs and a fourth-inning leadoff home run for Binghamton.

Eric Campbell had two hits and two RBI, Jefry Marte also had two hits, and Pedro Zapata also drove in two runs for the Mets.

Buckner (0-2) gave up three runs on six hits in five innings.

The first five batters reached against Michael Lee in the three-run sixth.

NOTES: The series continues tonight with a 7:05 game, followed by 1:05 p.m. games Saturday and Sunday. Chris Balcom-Miller (1-1, 4.26) is scheduled to work for the Sea Dogs tonight against Greg Peavey (2-0, 0.00).

Bermudez started the season on the disabled list and is 6 for 11 (.545) since joining the lineup. Kolbrin Vitek’s eighth-inning double means he has reached base in all 15 games for the Sea Dogs. Juan Carlos Linares had a single and two walks and has reached in all 14 games he’s played for Portland.
