Boyd
Ryan Robowski. Kai Gronauer homered and Dustin Lawley produced an RBI single later in the inning. An inning later, Boyd's solo homer -- his first long ball since June 7 -- upped Binghamton’s lead to 3-0. After retiring 11 of the first 12 batters he faced, B-Mets starter Cory Mazzoni opened the door for a SeaWolves comeback with back-to-back two-out walks in the fourth. Corey Jones made him pay with a two-run double, slicing Binghamton’s lead to one. The lead disappeared in the fifth. Francisco Martinez singled off Mazzoni’s mitt and stole second. Marcus Lemon brought him home by lining a two-out single. Binghamton responded with a string of hits against reliever Slade Smith in the sixth. Travis Taijeron ultimately singled to plate Darrell Ceciliani with the go-ahead run. Binghamton turned a one-run game into a blowout by hanging five runs on reliever Jose Valdez in the ninth, highlighted by Boyd's two-run single. Mazzoni (2-0) struck out nine while allowing three runs and five hits over seven innings. Jack Leathersich and Cody Satterwhite each tossed a scoreless relief inning. Box

ST. LUCIE 5, LAKELAND 4 (10 innings): Lakeland’s Austin Green launched a game-tying solo homer against T.J. Chism with two outs and two strikes in the ninth, but the Mets

Mazzilli
recovered to snap their four-game losing streak. L.J. Mazzilli doubled to lead off the bottom of the 10th against Nate Fury and moved to third on Cam Maron’s single. Jared King struck out for the first out of the inning. Fury’s first pitch to Phillip Evans then bounced away from Green, the catcher, and Mazzilli slid safely into home to give the Mets a walk-off victory. Paul Sewald pitched a perfect top of the 10th to earn the win. Maikis De La Cruz had put the Mets ahead, 1-0, in the third with a single. Maron followed later that inning with a two-out, two-run single to make it 3-0. Evans belted his third homer of the season in the sixth to put the Mets up by four runs. Mets starter Luis Cessa cruised for most of the night. After Andy Dirks led off the game with a single, Cessa only allowed one more baserunner until the top of the seventh. In the seventh, Chad Wright led off with a single. Cessa rebounded to get a pop out and a strikeout, but Green extended the inning with a single. That brought up James Robbins, who launched a three-run homer to cut the Mets’ lead to 4-3. Cessa escaped further damage when Maron threw out Jared Reaves trying to steal second. Cessa struck out eight in seven innings. He allowed five hits and one walk. Beck Wheeler struck out three in 1 1/3 relief innings. Mazzilli’s leadoff double in the 10th extended his hitting streak to nine games. Box

CHARLESTON 4, SAVANNAH 1: The Dogs scored a pair of first-inning runs against Savannah starter Robert Gsellman and never looked back. Mike Ford drove in the opening run with a double and eventually scored on second baseman Jorge Rivero's error. Charleston produced its third run, and the second unearned run against Gsellman, in the third on a fielding error by shortstop Yeixon Ruiz. The Gnats committed four errors in the game. Charleston completed its scoring with a bases-loaded walk in the fourth -- one of the four walks issued by Gsellman in four innings. The Gnats scored their lone run in the third as Champ Stuart plated Ruiz with a hard-hit single to third base. Matt Oberste extended his hitting streak to 14 games with a second-inning double. Box

BRISTOL 9, KINGSPORT 8: Bristol scored five first-inning runs and chased Andrew Church before he recorded an out in the second inning. Eudor Garcia went 2-for-3 with four RBIs in the loss. The K-Mets pulled within 9-8 with a two-run eighth, but they stranded the tying run in scoring position when pinch hitter Jean Rodriguez struck out. Box

CONNECTICUT 4, BROOKLYN 3: Josh Prevost issued a bases-loaded walk to Garrett Mattlage with two outs in the bottom of the ninth for the walk-off loss. Michael Bernal's RBI single had given Brooklyn a 1-0 lead in the first. An inning later, Jeff Diehl doubled, advanced on a wild pitch and scored ahead of a throw to the plate on Joe Tuschak's groundball for a 2-0 lead. Cyclones starter Octavio Acosta retired the first 10 batters. He eventually surrendered a sacrifice fly to Joey Pankake in the fourth. The Tigers tied the score at 2 against Acosta in the seventh on consecutive doubles from Ross Kivett and Pankake. Brooklyn regained the lead in the eighth. Jhoan Urena singled and advanced to second when left fielder Rashad Brown bobbled the ball. With one out, Bernal hit a soft groundball through the right side that seemed like it would be enough to score Urena, but right fielder Ben Verlander showed that his brother isn’t the only one in the family with a strong arm. He uncorked a laser throw to the plate to retire Urena and keep the score tied. Bernal did advance to second on the throw, though. After an intentional walk to Tyler Moore, Diehl produced a go-ahead RBI single.

The 3-2 lead would be short-lived. Cyclones reliever Brad Wieck struck out the first two batters he faced, but then walked two batters and uncorked a wild pitch that placed runners on the corners. Wieck then coaxed Pankake to hit a routine grounder to third. However, Urena bounced a throw to first base, allowing the tying run to score. The Cyclones seemed prime to take the lead back in the top of the ninth, placing runners on first and third with one out. But Urena and Michael Katz struck out. Prevost retired the first batter he faced in the bottom half, but then walked two and surrendered a single to load the bases with two outs for Mattlage, who leads the New York-Penn League in walks.

GCL NATIONALS 4, GCL METS 3: Jeremy Hefner tossed a perfect inning in the regularly scheduled game in his first game action since Tommy John surgery. The Nats then overcame a 3-0 deficit with a four-run eighth against Alex Durham and Dan Hermann. Taylor Teagarden went 0-for-1 with a walk as a DH and was replaced by a pinch runner. Meanwhile, in the resumption of Friday's game, which had been suspended with the score tied at 3, Brent McMinn's balk plated the tiebreaking run in the bottom of the sixth. Box 1, Box 2

Herrera
ahead of Fort Myers for first place in the Florida State League South Division. Herrera now has nine multi-hit games in his last 10 contests. His go-ahead double came against Tyler Clark with no outs and plated Maikis De La Cruz, who led off the frame with a single. Wheeler struck out the side in the 10th and struck out two more in the 11th to earn the win. Three Mets pitchers -- starter Steven Matz, Seth Lugo and Wheeler -- combined for 19 strikeouts, a season high for the St. Lucie staff. The Mets got on the board in the third inning when Cam Maron delivered a two-out, two-run single. Brandon Nimmo laced an RBI double in the fourth to make it 3-0. That looked like plenty of support for Matz, who cruised through the first five innings, striking out six and allowing three hits. However, the Flying Tigers belted four consecutive hits to start the sixth. Chad Wright's two-run double cut St. Lucie's lead to 3-2. Jeff McVaney then singled and left fielder Gilbert Gomez misplayed the ball, allowing Wright to score and tie the game. McVaney was on third with no outs, but Matz struck out two and induced a groundout to keep the score even. Herrera broke the tie in the eighth with a two-out single against Calvin Drummond that plated Eudy Pina. That lead did not last. Curt Powell provided an RBI single with two outs against Lugo in the bottom half to tie the score at 4. Box

Later in the inning, Champ Stuart produced his first RBI with the Gnats, on a single that scored Victor Cruzado. Smith left the game after grounding into a double play in the fifth inning.

LAKELAND 3, ST. LUCIE 2: Lance Durham drove in the go-ahead run with an eighth-inning double against St. Lucie reliever Paul Sewald. With Chad Wright at second base and two outs, Durhman lined Sewald's offering into to left field. Maikis De La Cruz initially broke in, but the ball was hit deep. By the time De La Cruz recovered, it went just beyond his glove and to the wall to score the tiebreaking run. Lakeland reliever Jade Todd had inherited runners on the corners with one out in the seventh in a 2-all game. He struck out Brandon Nimmo and got T.J. Rivera to ground out to preserve the tie. Gabriel Ynoa made his best start of the season for the Mets. He pitched a season-high seven innings and struck out five. Ynoa allowed seven hits and two runs in a no-decision. The Flying Tigers opened the scoring in the third. Wright, Curt Powell and Jeff McVaney all singled against Ynoa with two outs. McVaney’s hit scored Wright to make it 1-0. Dilson Herrera tied the score at 1 in the fourth with a leadoff homer, his second long ball of the year. Eudy Pina gave the Mets a brief 2-1 lead with a two-out RBI single later in the frame. The Flying Tigers tied the score at 2 in the fifth. McVaney lined a full-count pitch from Ynoa off the left-field wall to plate Tyler Hanover. Drew Longley tried to score from first on the play, but the throws from De La Cruz to Phillip Evans and on to catcher Albert Cordero beat him to end the inning. Herrera and Nimmo finished with two hits apiece. Box

CHARLESTON 10, SAVANNAH 3: Charleston third baseman Miguel Andujar homered twice to hand the Gnats a three-game losing streak for the first time this season. The RiverDogs scored the game’s opening run in the third on Mike Ford's double against Savannah starter Chris Flexen. Andujar’s three-run homer against Flexen in the fifth staked Charleston to a 4-0 lead. Trailing 5-0, the Gnats (28-14) scored their lone runs in the sixth. Two walks and a single loaded the bases for Dominic Smith, who produced a two-run single through the hole on the right side. The hit snapped the Gnats’ 0-for-20 streak with runners in scoring position in the two games against Charleston. Victor Cruzado followed with an RBI single as the Gnats pulled within 5-3.

pitch that moved Tovar into scoring position, Brian Burgamy produced an RBI single for a 2-0 lead. Plawecki capped the inning's scoring by singling to right. Burgamy raced home from second, and needed an acrobatic headfirst dive to avoid a tag. B-Mets starter Rainy Lara's scoreless effort ended in the fourth on Ryan Schimpf's solo homer. Lara then retired seven of the next eight batters. Taijeron struck again for the B-Mets in the sixth. With two outs and Jayce Boyd at first, Taijeron smoked a 1-2 pitch from reliever John Anderson off the top of the left-field fence for his second double of the game. Boyd scored from first to give the B-Mets a 4-1 advantage. Schimpf's second solo homer of the game pulled New Hampshire within 4-2 in the sixth. A half-inning later, Binghamton opened a four-run lead. Anderson bounced a pickoff throw to first, prompting Darrell Ceciliani to scamper to second. With the ball still loose, Ceciliani tried for third. Right fielder Matt Newman’s throw hit Ceciliani, enabling him to race home. Cory Vaughn and Plawecki followed by posting back-to-back two-out doubles. Lara was chased from the game in the seventh. With runners at the corners, Peter Mooney stroked an RBI double. Reliever John Church entered and surrendered a run-producing infield single to Jon Berti. Kenny Wilson followed with an RBI groundout, cutting Binghamton’s lead to 6-5.

Dilson Herrera followed with a double to place two in scoring position. Lakeland intentionally walked Brandon Nimmo to load the bases, but the plan backfired when Florida State League RBI leader T.J. Rivera singled to plate De La Cruz and put the Mets up 3-2. Jairo Perez then drew a bases-loaded walk and Cam Maron lined his third single of the game to plate another run and make it 5-2. Gilbert Gomez capped the frame's scoring on a sac fly. Koch got one out in the bottom of the eighth before surrendering a single and departing. Randy Fontanez recorded the final five outs. The Mets had taken a 1-0 lead in the third when Herrera got caught in a rundown but kept himself alive long enough to allow De La Cruz to score from third. Lakeland made it 1-1 in the fourth when Chad Wright tripled and scored on a wild pitch. James Robbins gave the Flying Tigers a brief lead when he opened the fifth with a homer. The Mets tied the score in the sixth when Herrera doubled and reached home on Perez's two-out single. Herrera went 3-for-5. Maron went 3-for-4. Box

Bowman retired 10 of the final 11 batters he faced after Fermin’s homer and exited after six innings.
