On a bright and sunny day at Coca-Cola Park, the Lehigh Valley IronPigs were able to pick up a 3-2 win over the Buffalo Bisons. In a game that began less than 12 hours following their extra-inning loss, the IronPigs rallied back for the 3-1 series win over Buffalo.
For the Bisons, LHP Pat Misch also went 6.0 innings with two earned runs, and with no walks and three strikeouts. As well as Misch pitched, his one mistake to Delwyn Young was enough for the IronPigs to take a 2-1 lead at Young launched a two-run homerun onto the lawn in center field.

The Binghamton Mets 6:35pm game against the Erie SeaWolves has been postponed due to inclement weather. The contest will be made up as part of a doubleheader at NYSEG Stadium on May 31 at 5:35 PM. The teams will play two seven-inning contests with gates opening at 5:00 PM for the twin bill.
Tuesday’s rainout represents the fifth postponement this season for the Binghamton club and their third at home. The B-Mets had six postponements in the 2010 season, five of which came at home.
Ticketholders for tonight’s game can redeem their ticket for a ticket of equal or lesser value to any future 2011 home game, excluding July 3rd and 4th.
The B-Mets (8-13) will be back in action tomorrow against the SeaWolves (10-13) with first pitch set for 6:35pm. LHP Robert Carson (1-3, 3.79) will square off against RHP Jacob Turner (0-1, 2.70).
