BINGHAMTON, N.Y. — Henry Owens threw a six-hitter Saturday afternoon but his wildness in the sixth inning allowed the Binghamton Mets to hand the Portland Sea Dogs their third straight loss, 3-2, in the first game of a doubleheader.

Matt Clark was hit by a pitch and eventually scored the winning run on a wild pitch.

Owens pitched six innings. He allowed six hits and one walk and struck out 6.

Travis Shaw, who drove in both runs, and Mookie Betts had two hits each for the Sea Dogs.

The Sea Dogs loaded the bases in the seventh inning but could not score.

Lefty Brian Johnson was called up from Salem Friday and is making his Double-A debut in the second game. He took the roster spot vacated when infielder Sean Coyle was placed on the disabled list retroactive to April 29.

Johnson was a supplemental pick in the 2012 draft, between the first and second rounds, as compensation for losing to Jonathan Papelbon to free agency.
