Newburgh resident Casey Delgado allowed just one run in eight innings in gaining the win in the Binghamton Mets’ 6-1 victory over host Erie Wednesday night in a Double-A Eastern League game.
Delgado, an undrafted free agent out of Austin Peay in 2013, has climbed up the minor league ladder. He pitched for the traveling Frontier Greys and Traverse City in the Frontier League, before signing with the Mets last summer. He pitched for Class A Savannah last season and began this year with Class A St. Lucie.
After going 4-0 with a 2.67 earned run average for St. Lucie, Delgado was promoted to Binghamton, where he has posted a 3-2 record with a 3.77 earned run average in five starts.
