Richmond starter Ty Blach tossed seven scoreless innings. Robles (7-6) tossed two no-hit innings and struck out four of the six batters he faced to pick up the win. Satterwhite worked a perfect ninth for his 12th save. At 70-47, Binghamton achieved its high-water mark for the season. Ceciliani and Burgamy each extended season-long hitting streaks. Ceciliani has reached nine games. Burgamy has hit safely in 11 straight. Box

Mets to solo homers from Gavin Cecchini and Jared King in six innings. The Miracle scored two runs in the first against Michael Fulmer. Levi Michael walked and stole second and Byron Buxton followed with an infield hit. Buxton then stole second. Maron’s throw skipped away from L.J. Mazzilli and into center field, allowing Michael to score. Later in the inning, Dalton Hicks had an RBI double for a 2-0 lead. In the third, Aderling Mejia led off with a single and stole second. This time Maron’s throw sailed high and Mejia advanced to third. He came home on a two-out infield single by Michael to make it 3-0. The Miracle took a four-run lead an inning later. Niko Goodrum singled with two outs and stole second. It was the fifth steal of the night for the Miracle. Michael then had an RBI single. Cecchini’s solo homer in the fifth cut St. Lucie's deficit to 4-1. King made it a two-run game in the sixth with a solo shot. However, the Miracle answered with an ugly seventh-inning run. Goodrum stole second on Buxton's strikeout and went to third on another throw from Maron that sailed into center. Center fielder Gilbert Gomez bobbled the ball. The lapse allowed Goodrum to score. Adam Brett Walker’s homer against Robert Coles made it 6-2 in the eighth. Fulmer was charged with four runs (three earned) on seven hits in five innings. He struck out seven and walked one. Maron went 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles. Box
