Carrillo
the Eastern League championship for the first time since 1994. The B-Mets lead the best-of-five series, 2-0.

After a leadoff walk to Dustin Lawley in the second, Carrillo ripped Adalberto Mejia’s 0-1 offering over the left-field wall. Carillo’s blast, his first since June 20, gave Binghamton a 2-0 lead.

Richmond scratched into the B-Mets' advantage with a run in the bottom half against Peavey. Mario Lisson doubled down the third-base line to start the rally and Devin Harris put Richmond on the board by doubling off the right-field wall.

After Carrillo’s blast, Mejia retired 15 of the next 16 batters he faced.

Peavey saved his most dominating work for the end. He retired 12 of the final 13 Squirrels he faced, striking out eight during that stretch. He capped his night by striking out the side in a perfect seventh inning.

Binghamton stretched its lead in the eighth. After Kyle Johnson took second on a groundout, Edwin Quirarte intentionally walked Brian Burgamy with two outs. Taijeron followed with a three-run homer inside the left-field foul pole, giving Binghamton a 5-1 lead.

Randy Fontantez stranded one in a scoreless eighth. Cody Satterwhite, pitching in his third straight game, worked a perfect ninth to secure Binghamton’s fourth straight postseason victory.

Peavey (1-0) struck out nine and walked none over seven innings to pick up his first postseason win as a B-Met. Mejia (0-1) surrendered two runs on three hits over six innings in the loss.

The B-Mets bid for the sweep on Friday at 7:05 p.m. Left-hander Steven Matz opposes fellow southpaw Ty Blach. Box

LAS VEGAS 8, NASHVILLE 7: Cesar Puello had a game-tying RBI double and Cory Vaughn plated Travis d'Arnaud with a walk-off single in the bottom of the ninth. Nashville had taken a 7-6 lead in the top half on Hunter Morris' leadoff homer against Buddy Carlyle. D'Arnaud finished 2-for-5 with a double. He is hitting .395 since his demotion. Box

BINGHAMTON 5, RICHMOND 1: Reigning Eastern League Player of the Week Brian Burgamy launched a grand slam and Matt Bowman fired six scoreless innings. In his last

Burgamy
six games, Burgamy has produced 13 hits, including four homers, and 13 RBIs. Burgamy kick-started the B-Mets with a one-out double in the first against Ty Blach. He moved to third on Matt Reynolds' single. Kevin Plawecki then put Binghamton on the board with a sac fly, for his 41st RBI. Bowman retired the first eight batters he faced and allowed three hits in six scoreless innings. His biggest challenge came in the sixth when Richmond loaded the bases with two outs. Bowman (5-4) escaped by inducing Devin Harris to bounce back to the mound. The B-Mets came alive in the bottom half, loading the bases against Andrew Carignan. With two outs, Burgamy greeted new reliever Josh Osich by hammering the lefty’s first pitch into the rail yard beyond the left-field wall. His team-leading 11th homer gave Binghamton a 5-0 lead. After Chase Huchingson and Ryan Fraser each tossed a scoreless inning, Jack Leathersich was touched for one run in the ninth. Burgamy’s grand slam was the first by a B-Met since Richard Lucas against Trenton on July 26, 2013. Box

ST. LUCIE 10, CHARLOTTE 5: St. Lucie kept its first-half championship alive in a must-win game. The Mets still trail Fort Myers by a half-game in the Florida State League South Division. It all comes down to the final game of the first half on Wednesday. The Mets need to beat Charlotte and have Fort Myers lose to Bradenton to win the first half and clinch a playoff spot. It looked dicey early for the Mets (40-29) on Tuesday. Charlotte scored two runs in the first and Josh Sale’s RBI double with no outs in the second gave the Stone Crabs a 3-0 lead. Mets starter Luis Cessa would be pulled with two outs in the second inning. But the Mets responded in their half of the second. Maikis De La Cruz and Yeixon Ruiz both hit groundouts that plated runs to cut the deficit to 3-2. The Mets blew the game open in the third with seven runs on five hits. The Stone Crabs helped out by committing two errors. Starter Blake Snell also walked two and threw two wild pitches in the frame. Jairo Perez tied the score at 3 with a sacrifice fly. Then, with runners at first and second, Aderlin Rodriguez grounded back to Snell for what looked like a sure out. With the sun in his eyes, first baseman Patrick Leonard ducked on Snell’s throw and it went over his head. T.J. Rivera scored to give the Mets a 4-3 lead as Brandon Nimmo and Rodriguez advanced to third and second, respectively. The wheels came off for the Crabs. De La Cruz drove in a run on a grounder that was booted by shortstop Leonardo Reginatto, Eudy Pina doubled in a run, Ruiz singled in a run and Dilson Herrera drove in Ruiz with a double. By the end of the third, the Mets led 9-3. Reliever Bruedlin Suero balked in a run in the fourth to complete the Mets' scoring. Meanwhile, Seth Lugo recorded the final out of the second and proceeded to strike out seven over 5 1/3 innings. His only blemish was surrendering a two-run homer to Justin O’Connor that made it 10-5. Julian Hilario recorded the final six outs. Ruiz finished 4-for-5. Box

SAL SOUTH 4, SAL NORTH 4 (10 innings): Gnats closer Robert Coles allowed two runs in the bottom of the 10th for the blown save as the South Atlantic League All-Star Game ended in a draw. Savannah pitchers actually surrendered all four runs scored by the North. Kevin McGowan allowed a second-inning run and Dario Alvarez was charged with a run in the eighth. Gavin Cecchini played a full game at shortstop and went 1-for-4 with a walk and run scored. Box

BROOKLYN 5, HUDSON VALLEY 1: Corey Oswalt tossed six scoreless innings in his season debut, limiting the Renegades to three hits while striking out eight. Scarlyn Reyes earned the save. He allowed one unearned run in three relief innings. Brooklyn scored three first-inning runs. After an error and single, Michael Katz had a two-run triple. Tomas Nido followed with a run-scoring groundout. Joe Tuschak added a solo homer in the fourth for a 4-0 lead. In the ninth, the first baseman Katz mishandled a groundball to his left, allowing Hudson Valley's lone run to score. Box
