Following last night's doubleheader sweep over  Portland  the Binghamton Mets have opened up a ten and one-half game lead over the Sea Dogs in the Eastern Division of the Eastern League.  The B-Mets can increase that margin with another home victory tonight at 7:05 (air at 6:50 on News Radio 1290 WNBF).

Mark Cohoon makes the start for the B-Mets.  He is 4-3 this season.  He'll be opposed by Keith Couch who has a slate of 6-2 for the Sea Dogs.  Cohoon makes his 12th start of the season and second against Portland.  He started the campaign in the bullpen and was 2-0 in four appearances.  Couch also started the year in the bullpen and is 3-0 in six starts since joining the regular rotation.

The two teams square off in a doubleheader tomorrow beginning at 5:05 PM. The series concludes on Sunday with a 1:05 PM contest.  Going into tonight's action the B-Mets hold a 10-6 slate against Portland.
