MANCHESTER — Right-hander Ryan Tepera earned his first Double-A win, and the Fisher Cats emerged victorious for the first time at home this season with a 2-1 triumph against Binghamton on Monday night.

The Eastern League defending champions snapped a five-game losing streak, including four consecutive losses at home, before a crowd of 2,575 fans at Northeast Delta Dental Stadium. Tepera (1-1) pitched into the sixth, allowing one run on four hits, in his home debut.

New Hampshire's bullpen worked 3 1/3 scoreless innings, with Ron Uviedo finishing the job to earn his third save of the year. John Tolisano's third-inning double plated Jonathan Diaz and gave the Fisher Cats (4-7) a 1-0 lead, and Tolisano made it 2-0 moments later by scoring on a wild pitch.

Binghamton Mets lefty starter Mark Cohoon (0-2) provided a quality outing despite the loss, working six innings and yielding two runs on seven hits. Mike McDade went 3-for-4 for the Fisher Cats, and Tolisano provided the team's only extra-base hit. Oswaldo Navarro knocked in the lone run for the Mets (4-6) in the series opener.

In tonight's rematch with the B-Mets, Blue Jays prospect Chad Jenkins (1-1, 4.15 ERA) makes his third start of the season. Mets farmhand Collin McHugh (1-1, 2.31) gets the start in the 6:35 contest.
