The Binghamton Mets continued their road swing with a stop in Richmond to meet the Flying Squirrels.

Binghamton's attempt to sweep the Akron RubberDucks fell short on Mother's Day.  Akron took a 9-4 decision as John Gant gave up four runs in five innings to suffer the loss.

The Squirrels one-upped the B-Mets for a 4-3 victory in the first game of the series.

Seth Lugo made the start for the B-Mets.  He is 2-0 with a 1.37 ERA.  Opposing the right-hander is southpaw Jack Snodgrass who is 2-3 with a 5.04 ERA.

This series provides a re-match of last September's Eastern League Championship series when Binghamton swept all three games to clinch their title.  Overall Binghamton finished 9-4 against the Flying Squirrels.
