By sstorm Published: August 28, 2009

BINGHAMTON METS 3, AKRON AEROS 1 KEY STATS: As the game started, the Aeros knew they couldn't clinch the division even with a win as second-place Reading was rained out...But it didn't matter in the end as the Aeros' game was also shortened by rain after just 6 1/2 innings...Aeros LHP Scott Barnes took the loss after allowing three runs on seven hits in just 4 2/3 innings. KEY MOMENTS: The Aeros took an early lead in the second inning when LF Jerad Head walked, stole second base and scored on 3B Jared Goedert's single to left field...But the B-Mets rallied with single runs in the third through fifth innings. C Josh Thole's sacrifice fly put Binghamton on the board in the third, an Aeros error contributed to a run in the fourth and a pair of Barnes' wild pitches allowed the final run to come home. STORM'S STARS: Goedert was the only Aeros player to get a hit...Thole and D.J. Wabick were 2-for-3 with an RBI...B-Mets LHP Eric Niesen limited the host to just one hit and a run over six innings. UP NEXT: The Aeros continue this four-game homestand with the B-Mets (New York Mets) with the second game of the series tonight at Canal Park at 7:05 p.m. Aeros left-hander Eric Berger (1-1, 3.18 ERA) and B-Mets right-hander Dylan Owen (4-9, 5.60 ERA) are the scheduled pitchers. RADIO: WARF (1350 am).
