The Binghamton Mets will celebrate the July fourth holiday tonight as they host the Altoona Curve in a 6:35 PM game (air-time at 6:20 PM on News Radio 1290 WNBF).  There will be a hot dog eating contest before the game, a post-game  jersey auction and a Double Grand Finale Fireworks Show after the game as well.

This is the final game of the B-Mets homestand.  They open a five-game series in New Hampshire tomorrow night at 7:05. Regular season games will not be held next Tuesday and Wednesday as the Eastern League will hold its annual All-Star game.

Last night Binghamton topped the Curve 4-2 as Darin Gorski pitched 5 innings to get the win.  He gave up two runs on five hits in earning his second win of the season.  Danny Muno was hot at the plate with a 3-3 night.

With the win the B-Mets move to 51-29 and have a lead of eight and one-half games on Portland and 11 and one-half games on Trenton in the Eastern Division of the Eastern League.  Binghamton has won nine of it last twelve games.  Tonight's scheduled B-Mets starter is right-hander Cory Mazzoni.  Mazzoni is 4-2 this season.
