Trenton starter Mikey O’Brien retired the first 10 B-Mets batters before giving up a one-out single to Darrell Ceciliani in the fourth.

Trailing 8-0, Binghamton produced a six-run fifth. Danny Muno had an RBI single. After Ceciliani smacked an RBI double, Cesar Puello blasted his 10th homer, bringing Binghamton within three runs. On the next pitch, Allan Dykstra also homered. It marked the first time this season Binghamton hit back-to-back homers. Trenton responded in the seventh. Ryan Fraser walked two batters, then allowed back-to-back run-scoring hits. Binghamton produced only one hit over the final four innings. Cohoon (3-3) surrendered eight runs in five innings.
