BUFFALO 9, PAWTUCKET 3: Jenrry Mejia surrendered two runs, both unearned, on six hits and a walk and notched his first winning decision as a starting pitcher this season. Left fielder Lucas Duda went 3-for-5 with a pair of doubles, the latter against Mark Prior. Duda scored three runs in his return following a three-day absence while requiring a root canal. Josh Rodriguez contributed a solo homer. Box

BINGHAMTON 7, HARRISBURG 2: Juan Centeno and Allan Dykstra drove in three runs apiece as the B-Mets pounded out 15 hits in the rubber game. The B-Mets got to Senators starter Paul Demny in the third. Binghamton started the frame with three straight singles, including Dykstra’s RBI hit. A walk to Jefry Marte loaded the bases. Centeno then produced his second triple this season. Demny issued two more walks to reload the bases. Reliever Brian Broderick entered and induced Sean Kazmar to ground out to end the four-run inning. B-Mets starter Cory Mazzoni allowed at least one baserunner in each of his first four innings, but did not surrender a run. That changed in the fifth, when the reliever Broderick singled, took second on a balk and scored on back-to-back singles. Mazzoni walked Tim Pahuta to load the bases, but induced Destin Hood to ground out to end the threat. After Broderick retired nine straight, the B-Mets scored a run on three singles in the sixth. Raul Reyes added a solo homer an inning later for a 6-1 lead. Jeff Kaplan replaced Mazzoni and tossed a scoreless sixth. In the seventh, Adam Kolarek surrendered a pinch-hit homer to Jimmy Van Ostrand. The southpaw nonetheless battled through two innings without allowing another run. Dykstra capped his three-RBI day with a sac fly against Rafael Martin in the eighth, extending Binghamton’s lead to five runs for Ryan Fraser. He struck out two and breezed through a perfect ninth. Mazzoni (5-3) scattered six hits while allowing one run over five innings. Box

SAVANNAH at GREENVILLE (canceled)

DANVILLE 6, KINGSPORT 5 (13 innings): K-Mets reliever Ramon Estevez surrendered a leadoff walk to Logan Robbins in the 13th. Robbins advanced to second on a sacrifice bunt and scored the decisive run on Levi Hyam's two-out single. Akeel Morris had contributed five scoreless relief innings. 2012 first-round pick Gavin Cecchini went 3-for-7 with two RBIs as the DH in his first action since fracturing the tip of his middle finger getting hit by a pitch on Aug. 1. Box

BROOKLYN 10, VERMONT 5: The Cyclones completed the sweep and moved within a game of first-place Hudson Valley. Rainy Lara surrendered more than three earned runs for only the second time this season, while battling through five innings. The Lake Monsters took a second-inning lead when Daniel Robertson doubled and Miguel Marte followed with an RBI single. Vermont made it 2-0 in the fourth, but the Cyclones struck back a half-inning later. Brooklyn batted around in a four-run frame. Dimas Ponce, Phillip Evans and Kevin Plawecki singled to load the bases with no outs. Alex Sanchez then doubled to even the score at 2. Nelfi Zapata delivered a sacrifice fly to score Plawecki and give Brooklyn the lead. After Julio Concepcion walked, Richie Rodriguez singled to score Sanchez and give the Cyclones a two-run cushion. In the fifth, Vermont's Sam Roberts singled and Reynaldo Mateo walked. With runners on the corners after a fielder's choice, Chris Bostick singled to score Roberts and cut the Cyclones' lead to 4-3. Brett Vertigan also singled, tying the game. In the bottom half, Ponce homered -- his first long ball since Aug. 14, 2011. The Cyclones added four runs in the sixth. Box

SCRANTON/WILKES-BARRE 10, BUFFALO 4: Scranton/Wilkes-Barre's Chris Dickerson led off the contest with his seventh homer of the season, against spot starter Pedro Beato. Eduardo Nunez singled home a pair in the third inning to even the score at 4 and chase Beato. Dickerson plated his second run of the night with a double in the fourth against Elvin Ramirez (3-1) that gave the Yankees a one-run lead. The Bisons kept pace with the Yanks for a while. Josh Satin produced a two-run homer in the first inning against Ramon Ortiz. The long ball was his 13th of the season and extended his hitting streak to nine games. Mike Nickeas and Zach Lutz also drove in runs for the Herd. The Bisons needed the spot starter because Sunday's rainout delayed Zack Wheeler's Triple-A debut a day, to a Monday doubleheader at Syracuse. Scott Patterson, who was charged with two runs on four hits while recording two outs, and C.J. Nitkowski made their Coca-Cola Field debuts. Box

BINGHAMTON 5, HARRISBURG 0: Mark Cohoon took a no-hit bid into the seventh inning and struck out a season-high 10 en route to his fifth career shutout. The teams waited through a 49-minute rain delay at the start. Cohoon then retired the first 11 he faced before issuing a walk. Against Harrisburg starter Ryan Perry, Binghamton broke through in the fifth. Jefry Marte doubled and scored when Raul Reyes dumped a double into the right-field corner. Dustin Martin chased Reyes home four batters later with a single. After retiring eight more Senators in a row, Cohoon’s no-hit bid came to an end with one out in the seventh, when Justin Bloxom sent a high pop-up to shallow center. Wilfredo Tovar retreated from shortstop and Reyes raced in from center, but the ball dropped to the grass for a double. Cohoon retired the next two hitters to keep the shutout bid intact. Binghamton added two runs and chased Perry in the seventh. Juan Centeno doubled and scored when Martin tripled. Jimmy Barthmaier took over for Perry and allowed Martin to score on Wilmer Flores’ single. Cohoon cruised through a perfect eighth and helped his cause with an RBI in the ninth, driving in Centeno with a single. After getting the first out in the ninth, the southpaw fell into a bit of trouble, allowing a single and hitting a batter. Cohoon bounced back to strike out Bloxom. He then induced Jimmy Van Ostrand to fly out to end the game. It was Cohoon’s first shutout since he collected three straight with Savannah in June 2010, after which he bypassed St. Lucie and was promoted directly to Binghamton. Box

ST. LUCIE 2, FORT MYERS 1: Alonzo Harris Jr. had a leadoff walk, T.J. Rivera tripled and Danny Muno had an RBI single in a two-run first inning and that held up. Logan Verrett limited Fort Myers to one run on four hits and a walk in 6 1/3 innings. Adrian Rosario, who was demoted from Binghamton with the addition of former major league reliever Drew Carpenter to the B-Mets' bullpen, tossed 1 2/3 scoreless relief innings. Taylor Whitenton notched his seventh save. Box

SAVANNAH 3, GREENVILLE 2
SAVANNAH 9, GREENVILLE 5:
Gregory Pron doubled scored on a throwing error in the bottom of the ninth for the win in Game 1. Cole Frenzel contributed a three-run homer in the first inning and the Gnats won the nightcap. Box 1, Box 2

KINGSPORT 6, DANVILLE 5: Jonathan Leroux went 3-for-4 with three RBIs, including a two-run double in the K-Mets' five-run third. Hunter Carnevale picked up his first save. Box

BROOKLYN 1, VERMONT 0: Cyclones starter Hansel Robles carried a perfect game into the eighth, while Brooklyn was no-hit into the ninth. The Cyclones ultimately produced a walk-off win on Phillip Evans' single in the final frame. Robles had a perfect game until Daniel Robertson's two-out single in the eighth. Cyclones reliever Tyler Vanderheiden entered for the ninth in the scoreless game and surrendered a one-out double to Austin Booker. Addison Russell grounded out to first, moving Booker to third with two outs. Vanderheiden then struck out Brett Vertigan. Dimas Ponce led off the bottom of the ninth with the Cyclones' first hit of the game. Evans then came up and failed twice at a sacrifice bunt, leaving him in an 0-2 hole. The 1-2 offering from Ryan Dull bounced in front of home plate and went to the backstop, allowing Ponce to advance to second. Evans then worked a full count and singled down the left-field line, scoring Ponce and giving the Cyclones the walk-off victory. Box
