After Wesson loaded the bases by allowing a single and issuing two walks, Flores stroked his second double, driving in two and giving Binghamton a 4-2 edge. Lennerton had a solo homer in the third.

In the ninth, Luis Sanz singled and Johnson reached on a fielding error by Havens at second. Castellanos cut the deficit to two by lining a two-out, run-scoring single. Lennerton then struck out on three pitches. Fraser earned his first win as a B-Met. Carson collected his sixth save. The B-Mets (35-38) complete the series Monday as Zack Wheeler pitches. Box

DAYTONA at ST. LUCIE (ppd).: Postponed because of inclement weather, the game will be made up as part of a 4 p.m. doubleheader Monday.

AUGUSTA 2, SAVANNAH 1: Augusta no-hit the Gnats into the seventh inning and then held on late. Savannah’s Cam Maron went 0-for-4, snapping his hitting streak at 16 games, tied for the second-longest in the South Atlantic League in 2012. Left-hander Jimmy Fuller made his first Savannah start since Aug. 1, 2010. He finished that season with St. Lucie, but missed last year following labrum surgery. In the second inning, Joe Staley blooped a two-out single into shallow right field and scored on Brett Krill’s double. Augusta opened a 2-0 lead in the fourth. Wes Hodges doubled to chase Fuller, who had reached his pitch limit. Garrett Buechele followed with an RBI single against Randy Fontanez, who otherwise tossed three scoreless innings. Augusta left-hander Adalberto Mejia was pulled with a no-hitter intact through six innings because of a pitch limit. The Gnats broke through for their first hits and only run in the seventh against reliever Andrew Berger. Dustin Lawley drew a one-out walk. Aderlin Rodriguez then rolled a swinging bunt up the third-base line that stopped in fair territory for the Gnats’ first hit. Gregory Pron followed with a clean single into right field to drive in Lawley. After a botched rundown, Rodriguez advanced to third and Lawley, as the potential go-ahead run, followed the play into second. However, 2011 14th-round pick Xorge Carillo, in his first Savannah start, struck out to strand the runners in scoring position. Box

KINGSPORT 8, GREENEVILLE 3: Right-hander Robert Gsellman, the Mets' 13th-round pick in 2011, allowed only one run, unearned, in six innings. Maikis De La Cruz went went 3-for-4 with a triple and three RBIs. Gavin Cecchini had two RBIs. Box

Brandon Nimmo worked a one-out walk in the first and moved into scoring position on a wild pitch. Sanchez then singled to plate Nimmo for a 1-0 lead. In the fourth, consecutive singles by Sanchez, Nelfi Zapata and Cole Frenzel loaded the bases. Eudy Pina then delivered a two-run double. The lead swelled to 6-0 in the fifth. Richie Rodriguez and Nimmo walked and advanced on a groundout. Sanchez drove in his second run with a single and later scored on a two-RBI hit from Frenzel. In the sixth, Phillip Evans plated Jonathan Clark with a single. An inning later, Zapata’s solo homer made it 8-0. Ynoa allowed a walk and a single to open Aberdeen's half of the seventh inning before giving way to Ernesto Yanez, who walked a batter to load the bases. Yanez then served up a grand slam to Doug Bream. John Mincone pitched two scoreless innings to close out the game and collect his first save. Box
