AA - BINGHAMTON 5, NEW BRITAIN 3: Binghamton produced a season-high seven doubles, beginning with Allan Dykstra's run-scoring two-bagger in the first.

Binghamton took a 4-2 lead with a three-run third that included doubles by Alonzo Harris, Josh Rodriguez, Cesar Puello and Travis Taijeron. Goeddel bounced back after Sano’s homer with three scoreless innings. In the sixth, Sano ripped a single past shortstop Wilfredo Tovar to start the inning and Daniel Ortiz walked. Dan Rohlfing’s innocent flyout to right proved costly for Binghamton. As Sano tagged up to third, Tovar received Puello’s throw and fired to first in attempt to nab Ortiz. The shortstop’s toss skipped into the seats and allowed Sano to score, trimming Binghamton’s lead to 4-3. But with the tying run on third, Goeddel struck out Jordan Parraz. He then handed the reins to Adam Kolarek. The southpaw struck out Angel Morales looking to end the threat. Kolarek returned for the seventh and worked around a leadoff double by Danny Santana in a scoreless frame.
