Each team scored three times in the first inning. Binghamton’s Carlos Rincon hit a three-run homer and New Hampshire (47-50) scored on singles by Vinny Capra, a groundout by Jordan Groshans and a single by Orimoloye.

The Rumble Ponies (46-53) moved back in front in the second. Carlos Cortes reached on a fielder’s choice, and singles by Luis Carpio and Brett Baty made it 4-3.
