READING, PA - Wyatt Young's home run in the sixth and RBI single in the 10 th propelled the Binghamton Rumble Ponies past the Reading Fightin Phils 2-1 in 10 innings Friday night at FirstEnergy Stadium. Binghamton (23-18) has taken three of the first four games in the series.

In the tenth, with the score tied at one, Ryan Clifford served as the designated runner off second to start the frame. The next batter, Jeremiah Jackson, flied out to right to move Clifford to third. Two batters later, Young came through with the two-out hit to center field to bring home Clifford and put the Ponies up 2-1.

In the sixth, with Binghamton down 1-0, Young led off the inning with a solo homer to right, his second home run in as many games and fourth of the season.

Tyler Stuart allowed one run and three hits over five innings in the no-decision, with nine strikeouts and only two walks. Reading's lone run came in the fourth as Bryce Ball drove a solo homer to right.
