TOLEDO 4, BUFFALO 1 (10 innings): Jeurys Familia allowed one run on three hits and two walks in a career-high eight innings and struck out a season-high nine, and the Bisons forced extra innings with a run in the bottom of the ninth, but came up short. Manny Acosta suffered the loss after being charged with three runs in the 10th. Trailing 1-0, Adam Loewen opened the bottom of the ninth with a single. He advanced to second when Chris Bootcheck hit Zach Lutz with a pitch. Loewen scored the tying run on Valentino Pascucci's ensuing sacrifice bunt, when Bootcheck threw away the baseball. With Lutz and Pascucci in scoring position and no out, Josh Satin was intentionally walked. However, Buffalo stranded the bases loaded as Matt den Dekker and Matt Tuiasosopo consecutively struck out and Rob Johnson flied out. Familia has allowed two runs in his past 20 2/3 innings. Box

TRENTON 7, BINGHAMTON 1: The Thunder led wire-to-wire after scoring the game’s first run in the opening inning against starter Cory Mazzoni. Jose Pirela led off with a single and scored two batters later on a double play. Trenton added another run in the second on an RBI double by Jose Gil. Binghamton scratched out its only run in the second off starter Vidal Nuno. Eric Campbell walked, moved to third on Allan Dykstra’s single and scored when Jefry Marte bounced into a double play. The B-Mets loaded the bases later in the inning, but failed to break through. Juan Lagares flied out to end the threat. Nuno faced one over the minimum over his final four innings. He left after allowing one run on six hits over six frames. After allowing Gil’s double, Mazzoni retired 10 straight batters before his day ended. He allowed two runs on three hits over five innings. Trenton blew the game open in the seventh against the B-Mets bullpen. Jeff Stevens and Adrian Rosario were tagged for three runs on four hits, including three doubles. Mazzoni (3-3) had his personal two-game winning streak and a 14-inning scoreless streak end. Box

BREVARD COUNTY 9, ST. LUCIE 7: Mike Baxter went 0-for-5 with three strikeouts as the DH as his rehab assignment continued. Brevard County chased starter Chase Huchingson with two outs in a five-run first inning. Box

BRISTOL 10, KINGSPORT 7: Starter Akeel Morris allowed seven runs in 2 1/3 innings. Box

BROOKLYN 7, HUDSON VALLEY 3: After going 10 games without a homer, the Cyclones connected on a pair of round-trippers. And Rainy Lara improved to 4-1 after allowing three runs (two earned) in five innings. Kevin Plawecki paced the Brooklyn bats with a 3-for-3 performance, including an RBI double. Jeff Reynolds, making only his second start, connected on a leadoff homer in the first -- his first professional long ball. Brooklyn’s lead swelled in the fourth. Dimas Ponce connected on a two-out single and Eudy Pina followed with a homer for a 3-0 lead. In the bottom half, Tommy Coyle answered with a solo homer against Lara. Trailing 4-2, the Renegades cut into the lead in the sixth, taking advantage of a pair of Cyclones miscues. Pina dropped a foul pop that would have been the first out, extending the at-bat for Justin O’Conner, who then singled. O'Conner moved into scoring position on a passed ball that eluded Jeff Glenn and scored on Coyle's single. But David Wynn followed with three scoreless relief innings to preserve the one-run lead. In the ninth, Brooklyn extended its lead courtesy of Brandon Nimmo. Pina had a two-out single and Reynolds walked. Nimmo then plated both with a double. Renegades shortstop Ryan Dunn allowed Nimmo to score with an error. Tyler Vanderheiden pitched a perfect ninth. Box
