Peavey recorded the victory with a season-high eight innings pitched. He allowed eight hits, three runs, issued no walks and struck out three in 99 pitches (67 strikes).

BINGHAMTON 8, NEW BRITAIN 3: Dustin Lawley launched his 11th homer and finished
with four RBIs as Binghamton won its 17th in 20 games. Binghamton loaded the bases in the second against Taylor Rogers. Rylan Sandoval then plated Brandon Nimmo and Travis Taijeron with a two-run single. In the bottom half, Reynaldo Rodriguez blasted a solo homer against Rainy Lara. Binghamton stretched its 2-1 lead with two-out production in the seventh. After Kyle Johnson was plunked with two outs and Dilson Herrera walked on four pitches, New Britain dipped into its bullpen. Jayce Boyd greeted Adrian Salcedo with an RBI single and Lawley capped the inning by ripping a two-run double. Lawley capped the B-Mets night emphatically in the ninth. Following a four-pitch walk to Boyd, the cleanup hitter crushed an 0-1 pitch from Jim Fuller over the left-field wall. Lara (5-2) surrendered one run on five hits over six innings to earn his first victory since May 17. Three B-Mets relievers combined to allow two runs over the final three innings. Lawley’s production capped a month in which he launched seven homers and collected 18 RBIs. Box
ST. LUCIE 5, BRADENTON 2: Eudy Pina’s two-run triple in the fourth erased a 2-1 deficit.
Pina then scored on L.J. Mazzilli’s two-out hit for a 4-2 lead. Pina also provided an insurance run with a single in the sixth that plated Maikis De La Cruz. Pina finished 3-for-4 with three RBIs. He batted.375 in June. On the mound, Kevin McGowan took over for John Lannan with two outs in the fourth. McGowan did not allow a run and finished out the last 5 2/3 innings of the game. He only gave up three hits. It was McGowan’s first relief appearance of the season. He started 10 games with Savannah and won his first Florida State League start last week. Lannan cruised until running into trouble in the fourth. He allowed three straight one-out hits, the last a two-run triple by Eric Wood that put the Marauders up 2-1. McGowan entered and struck out Walker Gourley and got a groundout from Taylor Lewis to prevent Wood from scoring. Pirates top pitching prospect Tyler Glasnow had trouble with his command in his start. The fireballer needed 70 pitches to get through 2 2/3 innings. He walked four and struck out five. The Mets had their chances to pounce on Glasnow early, but the only run they managed against him came on Gilbert Gomez's solo homer in the third. De La Cruz went 1-for-3 and scored twice. Gomez went 2-for-5. Box
SAVANNAH 8, ROME 1: Matt Oberste had his second straight big game for the Gnats.

Champ Stuart and Dominic Smith each reached base three times. Stuart singled twice and walked while Smith singled twice and doubled into the left-field corner. Dario Alvarez continued his strong season by blanking Rome for five innings. He earned his fifth win and lowered his ERA to 0.96, with 78 strikeouts against 12 walks. The Gnats improved to 14-2 against Rome this season. Box
