Pottsville’s Travis Blankenhorn recorded a pinch-hit single Friday night in his return to the New York Mets lineup.

Blankenhorn entered the game hitting for Mets relief pitcher Miguel Castro in the bottom of the 8th inning. With one out and the game tied at 4-4, Blankenhorn dropped a hit into right field.

He was later picked off at first base.

The Mets ended up dropping the game to the LA Dodgers, 6-5, in 10 innings.

Blankenhorn Recalled from Syracuse … Again

Blankenhorn has been living out of suitcases this summer, moving from the Mets lineup to the team’s Triple-A franchise in Syracuse several times.

He was recalled from Triple-A on Friday when the Mets placed newly-acquired infielder Javy Baez on the 10-day injured list.

Blankenhorn’s been at Triple-A since July 27. He was promoted to the Mets lineup previously on July 21. Prior to that, he was with the Mets from July 17-19 before getting sent down to Syracuse.

And before that, he was with the Mets from June 25 until July 2. Blankenhorn was first acquired by the Mets back on June 1 when they claimed him off the Seattle Mariners.

Overall this season, Blankenhorn is hitting 4-for-16 (.250) with 1 home run and 4 runs scored.
