MEMPHIS 2, BUFFALO 1: The game was scoreless until the top of the seventh inning when catcher Lucas May singled home Valentino Pascucci to give Buffalo a 1-0 lead. Pascucci finished the game 2-for-4. The Redbirds came back with two runs in the bottom of the second inning to hand Matt Harvey the loss. Harvey allowed both runs in his 6 2/3 innings.

SPRINGFIELD 3, BINGHAMTON 2: In their second-to-last spring-training game, the B-Mets fell to the Double-A affiliate of the St. Louis Cardinals. The B-Mets wrap up their exhibition schedule Saturday. Last yTear’s B-Mets bullpen was well-represented. Brad Holt, the right-hander who converted from starter to reliever, tossed a scoreless inning with three strikeouts and a walk. Erik Turgeon followed suit with a blank frame. Jeff Kaplan allowed one unearned run in his time on the mound. Newly acquired utility man Josh Rodriguez went 1-for-2 and scored a run. The top pick in the 2010 Rule 5 draft signed a minor league deal with the Mets yesterday. Last year, he played seven games with the Pittsburgh Pirates, but spent most of the season with the Altoona Curve, their Double-A affiliate. The B-Mets (3-6) host the Jacksonville Suns Saturday in their final game. Their game against the Springfield Cardinals originally scheduled for Sunday has been scrapped.
