BINGHAMTON - Ike Davis hit his first career AA home run and Dylan Owen pitched six scoreless innings for his first win of the season as Binghamton downed the Erie SeaWolves 3-0 Saturday night at NYSEG Stadium.

Lucas Duda and Shawn Bowman both went 2-4 in the contest and the B-Mets collected their fourth shutout of the season.

Davis’ home run was a three-run shot off SeaWolves starter Luis Marte, to put Binghamton in front 3-0 in the sixth inning.

Mike Nickeas walked to lead off the frame and was bunted to second by Jose Coronado.

Jonathan Malo then walked to bring up Davis for his long drive to right-center field.

Bowman led off the seventh with a base hit with Marte still on the mound and advanced to second on a wild pitch with Nickeas at the plate.

Nickeas then drove him in with a single to make it 4-0.

Owen worked out of two bases-loaded jams for Binghamton (30-50).

The first came in the fourth inning when he struck out Ron Bourquin.

The second was in the sixth when with two outs he walked Alex Avila and Casper Wells before Bourquin reached on a Bowman fielding error.

Owen then got Danny Worth to fly out ending the inning and keeping the game scoreless.

Owen ran his scoreless streak to 13.2 innings in his last two starts.

At Akron in his last start he went a scoreless 7.2 innings in a no-decision.

This time he went six scoreless, giving up five hits and two walks to move to 1-5 on the year.

Jake Ruckle saved his first career game as he went 2.1 innings only allowing one hit.

Marte was perfect through 4.1 innings for Erie (43-38) before Duda singled to center field.

He went 6.2 innings but gave up four runs on six hits to be pinned with the loss and drop to 5-8 on the season.
