PORTLAND — The Binghamton Mets scored three runs in the first inning and kept it coming, for a 9-2 victory over the Portland Sea Dogs Sunday afternoon at Hadlock Field.

Sea Dogs right-hander Chris Balcom-Miller (1-1) had a tough outing after two solid starts to begin the season. He exited with one out in the second inning, allowing five runs on five hits and three walks.

Reliever Michael Lee held the Mets to one unearned run over 4 1/3 innings, but then Binghamton piled it on with three more against reliever Eammon Portice.

Binghamton pitchers allowed eight hits – four in the ninth inning – while striking out 10.

The Sea Dogs scored twice in the ninth inning when Ronald Bermudez doubled in Kolbrin Vitek, and Bryce Bentz singled in Bermudez.

The announced paid attendance was 4,088.

The Sea Dog (3-8) remain in last place in the Eastern League East Division. They return to Hadlock on Monday at 6 p.m. to face the division-leading New Britain Rock Cats.
