LAS VEGAS 4, FRESNO 3: Jamie Hoffmann's single with one out in the top of the ninth against ex-Mets reliever Ramon Ramirez scored Josh Satin with the tiebreaking run. Jeurys Familia, inserted in the closer's role in his first game since a demotion, picked up his first professional save with a scoreless ninth despite surrendering a pair of two-out hits. Darin Gorski allowed three runs (two earned) in five innings in his Triple-A debut. Gorski stepped into Las Vegas' rotation with Aaron Laffey's promotion after originally being assigned to Binghamton. Greg Peavey and Justin Hampson combined for three scoreless relief innings. Satin went 3-for-4 and is now hitting .476. Box

BINGHAMTON 7, ERIE 2: Alonzo Harris hit a game-tying solo homer in the sixth as the B-Mets scored seven unanswered runs for the comeback victory. Erie pitcher David Kopp’s

Harris
throwing error opened the door for the B-Mets’ pivotal four-run seventh. With a runner on first and the score tied at 2, Juan Centeno bounced a potential inning-ending double-play ball back to the mound. Kopp fielded it cleanly, but skipped his throw into center. Wilfredo Tovar followed with a dribbler down the third-base line. Cesar Puello beat the throw home, giving Bingamton the lead. Darrell Ceciliani added a two-run single. The B-Mets plated the inning's other run on a bases-loaded wild pitch by Tyler Stohr. Erik Goeddel (1-0) scattered eight hits, allowed two runs and struck out five in six innings in his Double-A debut. His lone blemish came on a two-run double by James McCann. Erie’s Victor Larez tossed four no-hit innings before Danny Muno singled to start the fifth. Trailing by two, Muno’s hit began the B-Mets' comeback. He stole second and scored the B-Mets' first run when Puello doubled. Harris tied the score in the sixth against Kopp, golfing a 2-2 pitch above the yellow stripe in left. Jack Leathersich and Jeff Walters contributed three scoreless relief innings. Box

AUGUSTA 6, SAVANNAH 5: Augusta posted a six-run seventh against Matt Koch for a come-from-behind win. Paul Sewald surrendered a single that allowed the sixth run

charged to Koch to score. Savannah pulled within 6-5 a half-inning later on Chad Zurcher's two-run double into the right-center gap. The Gnats had taken a 3-0 lead into the seventh. In the bottom of the first, Zurcher led off with a double. Brandon Nimmo followed with a line-drive RBI single. After Nimmo went to second on a throwing error, Jayce Boyd singled to score Nimmo. Savannah wasted a strong effort from starter Logan Taylor in his Gnats debut. Taylor, an 11th-round pick last year out of East Oklahoma State College, blanked the GreenJackets through five innings. He struck out five without issuing a walk and allowed four hits. Boyd drew a bases-loaded walk in the fifth to force in a run for a 3-0 Gnats lead. Box
