The Binghamton Mets clinched the Eastern Division regular season championship last night with a 5-3 win over the Bowie Baysox at NYSEG Stadium.  The victory touched off a big celebration from the 4,359 fans on hand.  It was the third regular season division  title for the B-Mets and the first since the 2000 season.

Binghamton hopes to keep that momentum as they head to Akron to begin a four-game series.  With last night’s clincher the B-Mets up their record to 81-49.  The 81 wins are the most for the ball club since 2000.

Mark Cohoon will start for the B-Mets tonight.  He brings a 9-3 record into the game with a 4.18 earned run average.  Cohoon makes his 19th start this season and his first against the Aeros.  Cohoon has won his last five starts and has not lost since June 5th.

With last night’s win the B-Mets push their record in August to 14-6.  While the hitting has dropped off to a .231 team batting average, the pitching has been outstanding with an Eastern League best 2.39 ERA this month..

Following this series in Akron the B-Mets will head to Bowie for  four games against the Baysox.  Binghamton returns home to close out the regular season by hosting the New Britain Rock Cats next Friday through Labor Day.  Fans can follow all the action home and away on News Radio 1290 WNBF with Tim Heiman and Greg Murray.
