Syndergaard worked out of a jam in the seventh to cap his night with a scoreless frame. John Church tossed a perfect eighth. Adam Kolarek worked around a walk and two singles in a scoreless ninth to seal Binghamton’s biggest win since a 15-2 victory over the Fisher Cats on April 21.

Adderling Ruiz followed with an RBI single for a three-run cushion. The Mets (2-10) scored one run in the bottom half, when Wuilmer Becerra was plunked, advanced to second on a wild pitch and came home on Ivan Wilson's single.
