BINGHAMTON, N.Y. — The Binghamton Mets swept an Eastern League baseball doubleheader from the Portland Sea Dogs on Wednesday night, 6-1 and 1-0 at NYSEG Stadium.

Angel Cuan (3-4) tossed five scoreless innings for Binghamton in the opener.

Brian Burgamy and Dustin Lawley smacked two-out homers off losing pitcher Mike Augliera (3-8). Burgamy gave Binghamton a 1-0 lead in the first and Lawley made it 5-0 in the fifth with a two-run shot.

Augliera, a former standout at Binghamton University, took the complete-game loss. The righty was tagged for 10 hits and six runs.

After Burgamy’s homer in the first, the Mets didn’t score again until the fifth inning. Dilson Herrera delivered a two-run single and Lawley cracked his two-run shot. Travis Taijeron added a run-scoring single in the sixth.

Portland’s lone run came in the seventh on Michael Almanzar’s leadoff homer off Ryan Fraser.

In the second game, lefty Gabriel Ynoa (1-0) tossed a four-hit shutout as the Mets completed the sweep. Binghamton had just one hit in the game — a two-out run-scoring single by Rylan Sandoval in the second inning.

Mike McCarthy (8-4) suffered the tough-luck loss for Portland. McCarthy yielded one hit, three walks and fanned five over innings.

Portland has lost four straight road games for the first time this season.
