the longest by a B-Met since Matt den Dekker had a 17-game streak last season. Jarek Cunningham's solo homer opened a three-run second inning against B-Mets starter Cory Mazzoni. Fielding letdowns contributed. Gift Ngoepe's grounder went through third baseman Richard Lucas' legs for the game's first error. After moving to third base on a groundout, Ngoepe scored on shortstop Danny Muno's fielding error. Binghamton cracked the scoreboard in the fifth. Mazzoni led off with a single. Two batters later, Rodriguez tripled. Puello followed with a sharp single to make it 3-2. Andrew Lambo answered in the top of the sixth with a towering solo homer. Darrell Ceciliani opened the next half-inning with a bloop single. On the next pitch, Lucas delivered a run-scoring double. After Xorge Carillo singled to put runners on the corners, Joe Bonfe hit a pinch-hit sacrifice fly to tie the score at 4. Mazzoni received a no-decision. He struck out a season-high nine over six innings. Adam Kolarek (2-1) pitched two perfect relief innings, striking out four. In the eighth, Quinton Miller plunked Carillo. Alonzo Harris pinch-ran and moved to second on a sac bunt. After Muno also was hit by a pitch, Rodriguez singled to plate Harris. Puello's RBI single capped the scoring. Jeff Walters tossed a scoreless ninth for his league-leading 13th save. Dylan Owen (right knee strain) was placed on the DL. Ryan Fraser was promoted from St. Lucie. Box
