BUFFALO 13, SYRACUSE 7: Jeurys Familia was roughed up, Kirk Nieuwenhuis suffered a right foot injury and Wally Backman was ejected, but Pedro Beato retired all eight batters he faced in relief and the Bisons had a season-high 19 hits in a win against their Thruway Series rival. Josh Satin had four hits, including his 12th homer. Lucas Duda added a two-run blast and Zach Lutz had three hits and three RBIs. Satin erased a 5-3 deficit in the third with a three-run shot. Mike Nickeas launched a two-run homer in the eighth. Satin also had two doubles to push his team-leading total to 20. Four Buffalo relievers combined to toss 6 1/3 innings. Jeff Stevens was credited with the win after contributing 1 1/3 scoreless innings. Nieuwenhuis left the game with a torn plantar fascia in his foot after grounding out in the first inning. Familia allowed five runs, including a pair of homers, in 2 2/3 innings. He walked three. The Bisons officially added Zack Wheeler to their roster. Dylan Owen was placed on the disabled list with a left ankle sprain. Backman and Chiefs manager Tony Beasley were ejected in the fourth inning for an argument that took place just outside the third-base coach's box. Box

READING 4, BINGHAMTON 1: Reading tagged B-Mets starter Darin Gorski for three homers. Binghamton used the longball to grab the lead in the first against Ethan Martin, who had been acquired four days earlier in a trade with the Dodgers. Wilmer Flores welcomed Martin to the Eastern League with a solo homer. It was Flores’ fourth homer as a B-Met and 14th overall this season. But it was the only damage Binghamton produced against Martin (1-0), who tossed six innings. Martin allowed four hits, struck out six and issued one walk. Reading answered a half-inning after Flores' homer. Darin Ruf homered to even the score. In the fourth, Leandro Castro doubled and scored when D’Arby Myers homered. Reading extended its lead in the sixth, in Gorski’s final inning. Ruf opened the frame by crushing a 1-1 pitch for his 20th homer of the season. Gorski was charged with four runs on five hits in six innings. He walked one and struck out a season-high eight. Gorski (6-6) allowed multiple homers for the sixth time this season. The southpaw has surrendered 10 in his past four games. Box

ST. LUCIE 6, FORT MYERS 0: Tyler Pill and Hamilton Bennett combined on the three-hit shutout. Pill (6-1) struck out 10, walked one and hit two batters while allowing three hits in 7 2/3 innings. Aderlin Rodriguez homered twice and Cory Vaughn and Rafael Fernandez also went deep. Box

ASHEVILLE 3, SAVANNAH 2: Chasen Bradford allowed a runner inherited from starter Domingo Tapia to score as the Tourists posted two runs in the eighth inning in a come-from-behind win. Tapia was charged with three runs (two earned) on three hits while striking out five in 7 1/3 innings. Box

GREENEVILLE 18, KINGSPORT 2: Corey Oswalt was charged with six runs, while Luis Rengel was charged with nine runs in relief. Box

BROOKLYN 3, CONNECTICUT 0: Stefan Sabol drove in two of Brooklyn’s three runs. Brandon Nimmo doubled to open the first. He was plated on a double by Phillip Evans that cleared left fielder Danry Vasquez. Sabol ultimately hit a two-out, two-run homer to give the Cyclones a 3-0 lead. Brooklyn starter Luis Cessa earned the win, holding the Tigers to two hits in five innings. Cessa retired the first five batters before allowing a single to Tyler Hanover. The Tigers managed their second hit in the following frame -- another single, this time from Bennett Pickar. Connecticut starter Tim Kelley allowed three earned runs on seven hits in four innings. The Cyclones loaded the bases in the fifth and seventh innings, but failed to capitalize on either chance while going 2-for-14 with runners in scoring position. After Matt Bowman threw three no-hit relief innings, John Mincone pitched a perfect ninth to pick up his fourth save. Box
