The B-Mets grabbed the lead for good in the fifth. Cory Vaughn started things with a single. Wilfredo Tovar reached on an infield single off the glove of Altoona shortstop Alen Hanson. With one out, Kyle Johnson singled to drive home Vaughn and tie the game. Two batters later, Matt Reynolds reached on an error by Hanson, Tovar scored and Binghamton took a 3-2 lead.
