However, no one told the Akron RubberDucks that the home team is supposed to make their fans happy and win the first game of the new season. The RubberDucks got four RBI's from Giovanny Urshela and coasted to a 7-1 win over Binghamton.

Overall, B-Mets pitching gave up 11 walks, the most issued by the B-Mets since June 7, 2011 when they gave up 11 to the Harrisburg Senators. Akron pitching kept the ball down in the strike zone and produced 18 ground ball outs..
