BINGHAMTON 2, NEW BRITAIN 1 (Box)

Torrential rain had halted Friday night's game between Binghamton and New Britain in the bottom of the fourth with Binghamton leading 2-0, so they finished things up Saturday. Michael Fulmer went four shutout innings before the rains came. Binghamton erupted for five runs in the sixth, led by a bases-clearing double from Josh Rodriguez.

In game two, Robert Gsellman was able to pick up his first Double-A victory as Binghamton edged New Britain 2-1. Gsellman went six innings, allowing just a run on six hits. He struck out four and walked one. He also helped his own cause by adding what turned out to be the game-winning RBI in the second inning when he drew a bases-loaded walk that brought home Aderlin Rodriguez. Michael Conforto was responsible for the B-Mets' other run of the game, a first-inning solo homer, his second since moving up to Double-A

Rob Whalen pitched into the eighth to pick up his fourth win of the season. He fanned five and allowed two runs on four hits and three walks on the day. St. Lucie's four-run eighth inning was highlighted by a two-run double from Colton Plaia and a two-run homer run from Champ Stuart.
