BUFFALO 10, ROCHESTER 3: Jeurys Familia struck out nine, matching a season high, in seven innings and Fred Lewis and Josh Satin homered as Buffalo snapped a three-game losing streak. Familia's 28 starts will either lead or share the lead in the International League. In fact, only one other Bisons pitcher in the past 17 seasons has started 28 games in a season -- Dillon Gee in 2010. Rochester tallied solo runs in the third, fourth and fifth innings, but the Bisons never trailed. Lewis' two-run shot opened the scoring in the second. Buffalo blew the game open with a five-run ninth that was highlighted by Satin's three-run shot. Satin's long ball was his 14th of the season and gave him 59 RBIs. He is two behind Valentino Pascucci for the club lead. Lewis extended his hitting streak to nine games, a personal season best. C.J. Nitkowski and Drew Carpenter combined for two perfect innings. The Bisons' record for starts in a season is 29, set by Dave Johnson (1988) and matched by Dorn Taylor (1990) and Tim Wakefield (1994). Box

READING 7, BINGHAMTON 2: The R-Phillies scored six runs in the second inning and the B-Mets never recovered. Darin Gorski capped his otherwise strong season on a sour night, lasting two innings. The inning's damage all came with two outs. With runners on first and second, R-Phils starter Austin Hyatt got Reading on the board by dumping a two-run double into left. Tyson Gillies followed by squirting an RBI double up the third-base line and Cody Asche was hit by a pitch to set the stage for Darin Ruf. He blasted a pitch from Gorski over the left-field fence for his record-setting 38th homer. The Nebraska native surpassed Ryan Howard for the Reading Phillies' single-season homer record while giving the R-Phils a 6-0 lead. Gorski matched his shortest career start, set as a Brooklyn Cyclone in 2009. Edgar Ramirez entered in the third and posted three scoreless innings. Binghamton scratched back with a run in the third off Hyatt. Pedro Zapata doubled and scored on Sean Kazmar’s sacrifice fly. Eric Campbell cut the deficit to four with a solo homer in the sixth, his first longball since July 24. Hyatt took a four-run lead into the seventh and got two outs before being replaced by Jordan Whatcott. The righty induced Kazmar to ground out to end the inning. He posted a scoreless eighth after the R-Phils tacked on a run against reliever Brandon Moore. Whatcott returned for the ninth, but was pulled after loading the bases on three singles. Justin Friend entered with one out and collected his 24th save by getting Kazmar to bounce into a game-ending 1-2-3 double play. Gorski (9-7) ended his first year at Double-A with a 4.00 ERA. Box

ST. LUCIE 5, BRADENTON 1: Jacob deGrom pitched six effective innings and struck out six to improve to 3-0 in the Florida State League. He allowed one run and five hits while issuing two walks. Hamilton Bennett tossed two scoreless innings and struck out one. Adrian Rosario pitched a scoreless ninth. Travis Taijeron's solo homer in the fifth tied the score. Danny Muno’s RBI groundout gave the Mets a 2-1 advantage in the fifth. Robbie Shields added an RBI to extend the lead. T.J. Rivera went 3-for-4 with a run scored. Darrell Ceciliani finished 1-for-3 with an RBI single. Aderlin Rodriguez had a hit and drove in a run. Box

ASHEVILLE 6, SAVANNAH 2: Yohan Almonte surrendered six runs in five innings. Savannah's runs came on a two-run homer in the third by Gilbert Gomez. Box

HUDSON VALLEY 3, BROOKLYN 1: Paul Sewald surrendered a tiebreaking two-run homer in the ninth to Leonardo Reginatto. The Cyclones had been first on the board, scoring a run in the first. Richie Rodriguez and Maikis De La Cruz hit back-to-back singles before Brandon Nimmo grounded into a forceout. Rodriguez came home on the play to make it 1-0. The Renegades tied the score in the fourth. After throwing three perfect innings, Brooklyn starter Luis Mateo hit Joey Rickard with a pitch. He advanced to second on a groundout. With Ryan Dunn batting, a passed ball by Nelfi Zapata then allowed Rickard to move to third. Mateo walked Dunn and surrendered a run-scoring single to Justin O’Conner. Mateo ultimately surrendered one earned run on four hits with one walk and eight strikeouts, including striking out the side in the sixth. Sewald entered to pitch the eighth with the score tied at 1. He gave up a double, followed by a single to put the go-ahead run on third base. But Sewald escaped that jam when he got Shaffer to ground into an inning-ending double play. Box
