Binghamton scored four runs in the top of the eighth inning to erase a 6-4 deficit to post an 8-6 win over the New Hampshire Fisher Cats at Northeast Delta Dental Stadium Friday night.

The teams meet again tonight at 5:35 p.m. Matt Boyd is scheduled to start for New Hampshire (15-24) against Rainy Lara.

Chase Bradford worked a quiet ninth inning to earn the save for the Mets (21-16). Fisher Cats pitcher Dustin Antolin blew the save and dropped to 0-2 with the loss.

Brian Burgamy had the big hit in the eighth for Binghamton, stroking a double that scored three runs. Kevin Plawecki would later single to score Burgamy for the 8-6 lead.

The Mets led 4-0 after the top of the third inning, but New Hampshire exploded for six runs in the bottom of the third to build a 6-4 lead.

Kenny Wilson tripled to score John Berti, who had reached on a fielder’s choice after Peter Mooney reached on an error. A wild pitch scored Wilson to make it 4-2.

A.J. Jimenez was hit by a pitch and Mike Crouse and Andy Burns walked to load the bases. Andy Fermin then delivered a grand slam over the right field fence to make it 6-4. It was Fermin’s second homer of the season.

But that was all the offense the Fisher Cats could muster. New Hampshire had just five hits in the game. Wilson had two of the hits.
