BINGHAMTON 4, ERIE 3: Cesar Puello’s two-run double capped a four-run eighth in Binghamton's come-from-behind win. The B-Mets used three hits and two Erie errors in the decisive frame after getting handcuffed for seven innings by Erie starter Warwick Saupold.
Puello Facing reliever Michael Morrison and trailing 3-0, Alonzo Harris reached on third baseman Corey Jones’ fielding error. Darrell Ceciliani followed with a single and Josh Rodriguez walked to load the bases. With Allan Dykstra at the plate, catcher James McCann fired to third in attempt to nab Harris. The throw skipped into left field, allowing Harris to score. Dykstra followed with an RBI double, cutting Erie’s lead to one. Puello capped the comeback by bouncing a go-ahead double down the first base-line, plating Rodriguez and Dykstra. The SeaWolves had jumped out to an early lead by tagging B-Mets starter Erik Goeddel for three runs in the first four innings. Daniel Field homered in the first, McCann collected an RBI single in the third and Luis Castillo added a run-scoring double in the fourth. Goeddel battled to complete five innings and handed the reins to Josh Edgin in the sixth. The lefty allowed two hits, but no runs thanks to Cory Vaughn’s strong throw to the plate, which retired Castillo to end the inning. Edgin returned for the seventh and posted a perfect frame in his first game since a demotion from the Mets. Vaughn left the game after that throw with a sensation in his arm, according to the Binghamton Press & Sun-Bulletin. Chase Huchingson (1-0) retired all three batters he faced in the eighth and became the winner after Binghamton’s four-run frame. Box

WEST VIRGINIA 10, SAVANNAH 1: West Virginia snapped Savannah's six-game winning streak as Power DH Stetson Allie pounded a pair of homers that accounted for five runs.

The Gnats (15-9) scored their only run in the eighth when Chad Zurcher doubled down the left-field line to bring home Stefan Sabol. The Gnats have not been shut in 2013. Savannah starter Luis Cessa allowed six runs (five earned) on 11 hits in 5 2/3 innings. He struck out six and did not walk a batter while taking his first loss of the season.
