ROCHESTER 6, BUFFALO 1: Jenrry Mejia allowed five runs on four hits and four walks in six innings. Zach Lutz went 3-for-4 with a pair of doubles and scored the Bisons' lone run, on Matt Tuiasosopo's single. Rochester's Wilkin Ramirez drove in four runs -- on a bases-loaded triple and solo homer, both against Mejia. Outfielder Fred Lewis left the game after injuring himself while running out an infield single in the first inning. The Bisons play their final 2012 home game -- and likely last as a Mets affiliate -- on Tuesday. Box

READING 4, BINGHAMTON 1: Phillies top prospect Trevor May surrendered only two hits in eight innings -- a solo homer in the first inning by Wilmer Flores, then a seventh-inning single, also by Flores. Binghamton’s elimination number was cut to one. The R-Phils answered Flores' solo homer with a run in the bottom of the first against Mark Cohoon. Cody Asche singled and scored two batters later when Jake Fox doubled. Reading grabbed the lead in the third after loading the bases on two singles and a walk against Cohoon. Tug Hulett smacked a two-run double for a 3-1 R-Phils lead. Darin Ruf continued his red-hot month in the fifth. The Eastern League's leader in homers blasted No. 36 on the season. It was Ruf’s 18th homer in August. Justin Friend struck out the side in order in the ninth to secure his league-leading 23rd save. Cohoon (8-10) allowed double-digit hits for the second straight start. He surrendered four runs on 10 hits over five innings, in his shortest outing since May 21. Edgar Ramirez supplied two perfect relief innings. Box

ST. LUCIE at JUPITER (ppd.)

PULASKI 5, KINGSPORT 4: Robert Gsellman tossed 6 2/3 scoreless innings, but Pulaski rallied with five runs over the final two frames. Catcher Jeyckol De Leon and reliever Martires Arias committed errors as Pulaski overcame a one-run deficit in the ninth. Box

BROOKLYN 2, ABERDEEN 1: Rainy Lara collected his league-leading eighth win after tossing six scoreless innings. Lara (8-2) allowed three hits and a walk while striking out four. The Cyclones took advantage of a pair of IronBirds miscues to open the scoring in the third. Richie Rodriguez singled and Julio Concepcion reached safely on Aberdeen first baseman Cameron Edman's error. After Brandon Nimmo popped out for the first out, Dimas Ponce hit into what looked like an inning-ending double play. Instead, Aberdeen second baseman Creede Simpson’s throw to first went wide, allowing Rodriguez to score. Brooklyn took a 2-0 lead in the sixth, on Jayce Boyd's solo homer. The IronBirds avoided the shutout in the ninth and nearly evened the score. Tyler Vanderheiden retired the first two batters before Cameron Edman connected on a two-strike double. Manuel Hernandez then was hit by a pitch. Will Howard followed by singling into left field, which should have loaded the bases. But Concepcion misplayed the ball, allowing Edman to score and moving Hernandez to third base. Vanderheiden responded, striking out Chase Weems to end the game. Box

BUFFALO 8, LOUISVILLE 0: Matt Harvey pitched seven scoreless innings, striking out nine. He retired the first 14 batters, until Paul Janish singled with two out in the fifth. Harvey allowed only three batters to reach, on two hits and a walk. Harvey now has an International League-leading 96 strikeouts. His seven wins lead the Bisons. Oswaldo Navarro, Matt den Dekker and Josh Rodriguez all delivered solo homers. It was Navarro's first long ball this season. Rodriguez went 4-for-5 and scored three runs. He is hitting .375 (11-for-29) with three homers and five RBIs since being called up from Double-A Binghamton on June 21. Brad Emaus went 3-for-4 with three RBIs. Den Dekker has hit four homers since a June 12 promotion from the B-Mets. Box

BOWIE 8, BINGHAMTON 5: The Baysox scored 33 runs and collected 49 hits in the four-game series while extending the B-Mets' home losing streak to six games. Dustin Martin's two-run homer off Zach Clark staked the B-Mets to an early lead. Binghamton starter Greg Peavey carried that advantage into the fifth, when his scoreless effort ended. No. 9 hitter Jai Miller squeaked a two-out, two-run homer over the right-field wall to even the score. Bowie took the lead for good with a three-run sixth. Manny Machado made Peavey pay for issuing two walks by stroking a two-run double. Rhyne Hughes followed with an RBI double. Armando Rodriguez surrendered a solo homer in the seventh. Clark settled in after Martin’s homer and retired 14 of the next 15 B-Mets. The stretch came to an end when he walked Eric Campbell to start the seventh. After a single by Wilmer Flores, Travis Ozga provided a two-out RBI single and Sean Kazmar cut the deficit to two with a run-scoring double. Reliever Robert Hinton entered and induced Juan Lagares to ground out to end the inning, stranding the tying run on second. In the eighth, Bowie's Robbie Widlansky singled, moved to second on a throwing error by catcher Francisco Pena, took third on a single and scored on a sac fly. Trailing by three, the B-Mets loaded the bases on three singles in the eighth. They only scratched across one run, on Martin's groundout. Pena struck out to end the inning. After the Baysox added one more run in the ninth against Edgar Ramirez, the B-Mets went down in order against Kyler Newby. Peavey (3-5) surrendered five runs on eight hits over six innings. The B-Mets (36-42) continue their eight-game homestand against Altoona. Zack Wheeler pitches Saturday. Box

ST. LUCIE 4, JUPITER 2 (12 innings): Alonzo Harris Jr. opened the 12th with a triple and scored on Rylan Sandoval's single to break a 4-all tie. Cory Vaughn pushed the lead to two runs later in the frame with a sacrifice fly. Sandoval earlier produced a solo homer. Relievers John Church, Adam Kolarek, Jeffrey Walters and Taylor Whitenton combined for six scoreless innings. T.J. Rivera went 4-for-5. Box

SAVANNAH 6, AUGUSTA 2: Michael Fulmer (5-4) limited Augusta to two runs (one earned) on four hits and two walks while striking out six in six innings. Dustin Lawley had two RBIs. Box

BLUEFIELD 12, KINGSPORT 3: Starter Christian Montgomery allowed six runs (five earned) on four hits and three walks in three innings. Box

BROOKLYN 5, ABERDEEN 2: The Cyclones tagged Aberdeen starter Cameron Coffey for four third-inning runs, fueled by Phillip Evans' two-out, two-run homer. Following the long ball, Kevin Plawecki was hit by a pitch and scored on Cole Frenzel's triple. Frenzel scored when Stefan Sabol doubled. Brooklyn starter Rainy Lara retired the first 12 batters he faced before surrendering a leadoff triple to Torsten Boss in the fifth. Cameron Edman's ensuing RBI single cut Brooklyn's lead to 4-1. Jerome Pena knocked Lara from the game in the sixth with a two-out solo homer. Lara struck out 10 in 5 2/3 innings. Lara became the 22nd player in Cyclones history to strike out 10 or more in a game, and the first since A.J. Pinera on Aug. 12, 2010 at Auburn. Brooklyn reliever Beck Wheeler took over in the sixth and walked Will Howard. Howard stole second, but Wheeler struck out Boss to end the inning. Back-to-back doubles by Frenzel and Sabol in the eighth gave the Cyclones a 5-2 lead. Frenzel went 3-for-4 with an RBI and two runs scored. Frenzel entered the game with a .486 on-base percentage, which ranked third in the New York-Penn League. Princeton product Matt Bowman picked up his first pro save, striking out three and walking a batter in the ninth. Box
