Akron starter Paolo Espino, Darrell Ceciliani and Blake Forsythe contributed RBI doubles. The Aeros touched B-Mets starter Tyler Pill for one run over his first five innings. Pill walked Tyler Holt to start his Double-A debut, but settled down to retire nine straight, five via strikeout. Pill’s strong outing unraveled in the sixth. He failed to retire any of the four batters he faced. Jesus Aguilar’s RBI single with the bases loaded tied the score at 2 and chased Pill. Mark Cohoon inherited the bases loaded and allowed all three to score. Carlos Moncrief gave Akron the lead on a sac fly. Roberto Perez and Giovanny Urshela added RBI singles. After Binghamton cut the deficit to two on Ceciliani’s RBI single in the seventh, the Aeros posted another big inning. The first five batters in the bottom half reached against Cohoon as the Aeros took a 10-3 lead. Akron tacked on three more runs on one hit and two errors in the eighth, against Adrian Rosario and Chase Huchingson. Pill (0-1) was charged with five runs (four earned) on five hits and two walks. The bullpen combined to allow seven inherited runners to score. The B-Mets had five errors, including two by third baseman Richard Lucas. Binghamton’s last five-error game came against the Erie SeaWolves on Aug. 31, 2011. Erik Goeddel makes his B-Mets debut on Monday at Erie. Box

Dickey deal, tossed four scoreless innings in his debut with the organization. Syndergaard limited Jupiter to three hits and a walk while striking out five.
