Home Runs doom B-Mets in finale

BINGHAMTON, NY  The Akron Aeros used the aid of four home runs to beat the Binghamton Mets, 7-5, Sunday afternoon at NYSEG Stadium.

After both teams were held scoreless for three innings, Akron cracked the scoreboard with two runs in the fourth inning against Jacob deGrom. In the bottom of the fifth inning, Danny Muno tripled home Cesar Puello to put the B-Mets on the board against Akron starter Paolo Espino.

In the top of the sixth, Akron responded with back-to-back home runs by Jesus Aguilar and Carlos Moncrief against deGrom, and his day ended after 5.1 innings. The righty gave up five runs on seven hits in his third Double-A start. Binghamton matched Akrons long ball effort in the bottom half of the sixth. Josh Rodriguez blasted his second home run of the year, and Cory Vaughn followed suit with a two-run shot of his own to tie the game, 5-5.

The tie did not last however, as Adam Kolarek gave up a solo home run to Jose Ramirez to lead off the seventh inning. Quincy Latimore added another solo shot in the eighth against Shawn Teufel, and the Aero bullpen did the rest. Bryce Stowell threw a perfect ninth inning to earn his first save of the season.

The B-Mets now welcome in the Erie Seawolves for a four-game series, beginning Monday night at NYSEG Stadium. Binghamton will send RHP Erik Goeddel to the mound against RHP Warwick Sauwold. First pitch is set for 6:35 PM, with the Horizons Federal Credit Pregame Show beginning at 6:20 PM on Newsradio 1290 WNBF.

POSTGAME NOTES: Alonzo Harris went 0-for-4, ending his 10-game hit streak. Cory Vaughn hit his team-high fourth home run of the season. The B-Mets are 0-9 when trailing after seven innings.
