Binghamton, NY (WBNG Binghamton) Home wasn't too kind to the Binghamton Mets Thursday night.

Even still, the team is excited to be back in Binghamton.

The Mets started a 9 game 8 day homestand last night after playing 7 games in 6 days on the road.

Manager Wally Backman says during that stretch the team played more consistently.

Players say being back home is a chance to relax.

"Definitely nice to be home. It's grinding on the road, living out of a hotel, going bus rides different places every couple days. It's nice to be home, get my feet back under me and kinda relax a little bit," says all-star Josh Satin.

Pitcher Matt Harvey, who was named to the futures game, will make his first home start Friday night.
