BINGHAMTON 6, READING 2: Gonzalez Germen allowed one run over 7 2/3 innings and the B-Mets scored five two-out runs. The B-Mets grabbed the lead in the first against starter Adam Morgan. Juan Lagares stroked a one-out double and scored when Allan Dykstra singled. Binghamton added to its lead in the fourth. Morgan issued consecutive walks and uncorked a wild pitch to put runners at the corners. Jefry Marte then plated Dykstra with a single for his team-leading 57th RBI. Pedro Zapata added an RBI single. Reading plated its only run against Germen in the fourth, when Cody Asche and Tug Hulett doubled. Germen (8-11) retired the next two batters to end the inning, stranding two runners in scoring position. After Hulett’s double, Germen retired 12 of the next 14 R-Phils he faced. The streak and Germen’s night ended when he allowed back-to-back two-out singles in the eighth. Nursing a two-run lead, Ryan Fraser induced Jake Fox to ground out to strand the inherited runners. The B-Mets added three runs in the ninth against Jay Johnson. Sean Kazmar supplied an RBI single and Lagares dumped a two-out, two-run single into right. Fraser returned for the ninth. With one out, Miguel Abreu scorched a groundball to third that Marte failed to field on the shorthop. Jiwan James followed by bouncing a single just out of the reach of Zapata in left field. With two aboard, Troy Hanzawa zipped a groundball that bounced off the mound and sailed over the head of Wilmer Flores and into right field, allowing Abreu to score. Fraser finally shut the door for his third save by inducing Tyson Gillies to ground out. Flores' nine-game hitting streak ended with an 0-for-5 performance. Box

JUPITER 2, ST. LUCIE 1: Taylor Whitenton allowed the tiebreaking run to score in the eighth, after Logan Verrett limited the Hammerheads to one run in seven innings. St. Lucie had evened the score at 1 in the seventh on Danny Muno's single, which plated Darrell Ceciliani. Box

ASHEVILLE 6, SAVANNAH 0: Miller Diaz allowed six runs (two earned) in 4 2/3 innings. The Gnats committed five errors, including two apiece by shortstop Yucarybert De La Cruz and third baseman Dustin Lawley. Box

BROOKLYN 7, HUDSON VALLEY 4: Brooklyn rallied in the seventh, scoring four runs to take a 5-2 advantage. A single by Phillip Evans followed by doubles by Alexander Sanchez and Jayce Boyd plated the first two runs of the inning. Jorge Rivero then walked. Nelfi Zapata grounded out, advancing both runners. Maikis De La Cruz then delivered a two-run double. The Cyclones put up two more runs in the eighth when Boyd homered, scoring 2012 first-round pick Gavin Cecchini, who was hit by a pitch in his New York-Penn League debut. Justin O’Conner led off the bottom half of the eighth with a single and Joel Caminero reached on a fielder’s choice and advanced to second on a throwing error by second baseman Jeff Reynolds. Caminero then moved to third when Marty Gantt flied out and scored on a Joey Rickard single. Rickard later scored on a double off the bat of Leonardo Reginatto. Brooklyn starting pitcher Gabriel Ynoa threw five innings and allowed two runs (one earned) on four hits with two walks and four strikeouts. The win went to reliever Logan Taylor, who pitched 2 2/3 innings and surrendered two earned runs. Tyler Vanderheiden pitched a perfect ninth, striking out one, to collect his 11th save. Box
