Akron, OH -Akron's Nick Weglarz belted a pair of home runs Tuesday, as the Akron Aeros defeated the Binghamton Mets in both ends of a doubleheader, 6-4 and 4-2, at Canal Park.

The B-Mets, who were the home team in the game, tied it with two in the ninth off Jose De La Torre (5-0), but then graciously obliged with a pair of bases-loaded walks by Brad Holt (2-1) in the 10th, to give the Aeros a 6-4 lead.
