Binghamton, NY (WBNG Binghamton) The B-Mets hit three homers and extended their winning streak to season-best seven games.

BMets starter Robert Carson handed out two walks and paid for it when Rawley Bishop singled home a run in the first inning.

Gronauer launched a solo homer into the rail yard in the fourth and Eric Campbell drove in a pair of runs on a single in the fifth. Juan Lagares' single in the fifth extended his hitting streak to 14 games.

Crosby exited after allowing a season-high eight runs on eight hits over five innings. Rob Waite took over in the seventh and allowed three straight hits, capped by Niuman Romero's two-run double. Binghamton held a 10-1 lead through six.

Carson served up a three-run homer to John Murrian to cut Binghamton's lead to 10-4.

Carson collected his fourth win of the season. Crosby was handed his sixth loss.
