go-ahead run in a three-run eighth as the B-Mets won their fifth straight. Binghamton opened the scoring in the fourth against Taylor Rogers as T.J. Rivera had a two-out double and Lawley followed with an RBI single. New Britain evened the score in the sixth against Rainy Lara. Jorge Polanco singled, Nate Hanson walked and Mike Gonzales singled to load the bases. Ronny Rodriguez followed with a sacrifice fly. In the eighth, Edgar Ibarra hit Boyd with a pitch to start the frame. The southpaw then surrendered a single to Rivera. Lawley doubled to drive in the go-ahead run. After a groundout, Wilfredo Tovar's sacrifice fly plated Rivera. Kyle Johnson then legged out an infield single that brought Lawley home all the way from second for a 4-1 lead. Lara matched his season high with 7 2/3 innings. He allowed one run, but did not factor into the decision. Chase Huchingson (4-1) recorded the final out in the eighth. Cody Satterwhite worked a scoreless ninth for his 15th save. Box

CHARLOTTE 8, ST. LUCIE 5: T.J. Chism (0-3) surrendered a grand slam to Johnny Field in the ninth to suffer the blown save. With St. Lucie leading 5-4 lead, Granden Goetzman led off with a single. Chism then struck out Jake DePew. Chism looked like he had a second out when Gilbert Gomez dove for a ball in center off the bat of Juniel Querecuto. But the ball popped out of Gomez’s glove and runners were at first and second with one out. Tommy Coyle then drew a walk to load the bases. Field followed with the decisive homer. The Mets had jumped on the Stone Crabs early, taking a 4-0 lead. In the second, Phillip Evans grounded into a bases-loaded double play that plated the opening run. The Mets plated three more in the third. Maikis De La Cruz scored from third on a missed pickoff play at first and Jairo Perez and Jared King had run-scoring hits. The 4-0 lead unraveled in the fifth. Mets starter Angel Cuan surrendered a two-out, two-run double to DePew. DePew then scored on a single as the Crabs pulled within 4-3. Coyle appeared to fly out to end the frame, but Gomez dropped the ball. His throw back to the infield went past three defenders and to the backstop, allowing the tying run to score all the way from first base. The Mets appeared poised to respond in a big way in the bottom of the fifth, when they loaded the bases with no outs for the second time in the game. But Perez grounded into a double play and the Mets again only got one run. De La Cruz and L.J. Mazzilli each had three hits. Box

JOHNSON CITY 5, KINGSPORT 3: Vicente Lupo produced a three-run homer in the first inning, but the K-Mets were silent the rest of the way. Starter Yoan Gonzalez allowed four runs in four innings. Box

STATEN ISLAND 2, BROOKLYN 1 (10 innings): Brad Wieck surrendered a walk-off homer to Chris Breen in the 10th. Left fielder Michael Conforto threw out Connor Spencer at the plate to preserve a 1-all tie in the eighth. Conforto's RBI single in the third inning had opened the scoring. The Baby Bombers evened the score in the bottom half of that frame with an unearned run after a throwing error by second baseman Tyler Moore, then a run-scoring wild pitch by Alberto Baldonado. Carlos Valdez tossed 3 2/3 scoreless relief innings. Third baseman Jhoan Urena was ejected before the game's first pitch. Box

GCL CARDINALS 4, GCL METS 0 (10 innings): The Mets' only hit came on a one-out bunt single in the fifth by Miguel Leal. Two walks, two errors and a wild pitch contributed to a four-run top of the 10th that broke a scoreless tie. Mets starter Kevin Canelon tossed 6 1/3 scoreless innings. Box
