ninth inning to rally for the win. Rhyne Hughes capped the furious comeback by lining a go-ahead, two-run single against Matt Hauser. Rehabbing Justin Turner started the rally by deliverying a two-out single. Josh Rodriguez followed with a walk and Allan Dykstra blooped an RBI single to left. After Wilfredo Tovar pinch-ran for Dykstra, Cesar Puello walked to load the bases. Hughes then hammered Hauser’s 2-1 offering through the hole and into right field. Rodriguez scored easily. Tovar dove headfirst, ahead of the throw from Evan Bigley with the game-deciding run.

Jeff Walters then notched his league-leading 25th save. B-Mets starter Mark Cohoon dealt with only one baserunner through three innings, on a fielding error by Turner at shortstop. Eddie Rosario put New Britain on the board with a solo homer on Cohoon’s first pitch of the fourth. New Britain pounded out three more hits in the inning, but the B-Mets defense shined to prevent the Rock Cats from adding to their lead. Bigley was thrown out at home by Alonzo Harris when he tried to score on Josmil Pinto’s single. Darrell Ceciliani followed by making a diving catch in the left-field corner, robbing Miguel Sano of an extra-base hit. Binghamton capped the inning by nabbing Pinto at the plate after Nate Hanson laced a double to the right-field alley. Ex-big leaguer Nick Blackburn kept the B-Mets in check through five scoreless innings. In the sixth, Ceciliani started a rally with a double. He advanced on a sac bunt and tied the score at 1 on Danny Muno’s sac fly. Cohoon preserved the tie by posting zeroes from the fifth through seventh innings. The Rock Cats broke the tie in the eighth against Cohoon on Rosario's RBI single. Chasen Bradford took over for Cohoon and allowed one inherited runner to score. Bradford (1-1) earned his first Double-A victory thanks to Binghamton’s comeback. Box

BREVARD COUNTY 3, ST. LUCIE 2 (10 innings): Nick Ramirez had a walk-off single against reliever Tim Byrdak in the 10th inning to snap the Mets' six-game winning streak. Jayce Boyd's doubled had plated Kyle Johnson and T.J. Rivera to give St. Lucie (51-41) a 2-0 first-inning lead. The Mets had four of their six hits in the first inning. Dustin Lawley had a two-out single in the sixth to snap a streak of 16 straight retired by Manatees pitchers. Gilbert Gomez had a leadoff single in the eighth, but was stranded at third. Matt Bowman allowed two runs (one earned) on four hits in seven innings while issuing two walks and striking out four. Hamilton Bennett pitched 1 1/3 scoreless relief innings. Box

INDIANAPOLIS 6, BUFFALO 3: Buffalo committed three costly errors in the finale and 12 in the four-game series. With Jeff Clement batting in the first inning, Chris Schwinden threw a wild pitch to score ex-Met Anderson Hernandez. In an attempt to throw out Hernandez, catcher Jean Luc Blaquiere's throw was offline to Schwinden at the plate, allowing Alex Presley also to score. With the Bisons behind 3-0 in the third, Starling Marte led off with a single. With Hernandez at the plate, Marte stole second and Blaquiere's throw sailed into center. The error would set up Hernandez to single home Marte and make it 4-0. "I'm hoping this off-day tomorrow will help us get it together mentally and physically," manager Wally Backman said. "A couple of our guys have been banged up so they need the rest." With the bases loaded an none out in the fourth, the Herd plated a pair with RBI groundouts by Omar Quintanilla and Blaquiere. With the bases loaded in the seventh, Matt Tuiasosopo hit an infield single to score Corey Wimberly and cut the Indians' lead to 4-3. But Brad Emaus grounded into a forceout to end the inning. Box

NEW BRITAIN 3, BINGHAMTON 0: The Rock Cats packed all of their offense into the seventh inning while handing Binghamton its sixth shutout loss. The starters -- Binghamton's Collin McHugh and Logan Darnell -- matched zeroes through the first six innings. McHugh's start took a turn for the worse in the seventh. The righty had his stretch of 13 straight scoreless innings snapped on his first pitch of the inning, when Rock Cats right fielder Evan Bigley ripped a homer. McHugh then hit Nate Hanson with his next pitch. Plate umpire Joey Amaral ejected McHugh and the B-Mets were forced to summon Brad Holt from the bullpen. The Rock Cats greeted Holt with two bunt singles to load the bases. Chris Herrmann extended New Britain's lead with a two-run double -- his fourth hit of the game and eighth of the series. The Rock Cats appeared to score their fourth run of the inning on sac fly by Deibinson Romero, but runner Estarlin De Los Santos was ruled out on appeal for leaving third early. Trailing 3-0, the B-Mets threatened in the eighth against reliever Luis Perdomo. Singles by Josh Rodriguez and Eric Campbell and a walk to Jefry Marte loaded the bases. The veteran righty escaped harm by inducing Raul Reyes to fly out to end the inning. Bobby Lanigan pitched the ninth and navigated around a one-out walk to collect his third save. McHugh (4-3) was saddled with the loss. The B-Mets (21-22) continue their series against the Rock Cats on Wednesday at 12:05 p.m. Zack Wheeler opposes right-hander David Bromberg. Box

DAYTONA 6, ST. LUCIE 5 (10 innings): John Church issued a leadoff walk to Matthew Szczur, who ultimately scored the winning run in the bottom of the 10th on Richard Jones' single. Starter Cory Mazzoni allowed three runs in five innings. Left-hander Jack Leathersich was charged with two runs in 2 2/3 in his Florida State League debut. Richard Lucas had two RBIs. Box

SAVANNAH 5, CHARLESTON 3: Trailing 3-2 heading to the bottom of the eighth, T.J. Rivera and Aderlin Rodriguez drew walks, placing the tying and go-ahead runs on base. With two outs, Brian Harrison, who has hit safely in 13 of his last 14 games, roped a single to drive in Rivera with the tying run. Charley Thurber followed by ripping a triple to score Rodriguez and Harrison for the decisive two-run margin. Thurber, who finished 2-for-3 with a double, triple and walk, also was responsible for the first Gnats run of the night. In the second, he doubled, advanced to third on center fielder Mason Williams' fielding error and scored on a wild pitch to put the Gnats in front 1-0. In the fourth, Rodriguez lined an RBI single to drive in Rivera for a 2-0 lead. The RiverDogs bounced back to take the lead with a three-run sixth against Savannah reliever Randy Fontanez. Savannah reliever Chasen Bradford worked scoreless seventh and eighth innings with two strikeouts for his first Savannah win. T.J. Chism set down the 'Dogs 1-2-3 in the ninth to earn his sixth save. Savannah starter Alex Panteliodis fought his way through four innings and allowed five hits and three walks, but no runs. Box

INDIANAPOLIS 8, BUFFALO 6: Two ninth-inning errors were the deciding factor. Oswaldo Navarro, who replaced starting shortstop Omar Quintanilla in the ninth, attempted to retire Starling Marte at first base, but the throw was wide left. The error put Marte at second with no outs. After a perfectly placed sacrifice bunt by Alex Presley, catcher Lucas May fired a throw to first to try to get Presley, but the throw was offline. Josh Edgin then hit Matt Hague with a pitch, setting up Jordy Mercer to line the decisive two-run single. The Bisons have committed nine errors in the past three games. Trailing 6-3 in the seventh, Corey Wimberly and Fred Lewis had back-to-back singles with one out. After Josh Satin walked, Wimberly scored on Jose Morales' passed ball to cut the deficit to 6-4. Valentino Pascucci's sacrifice fly then pulled Buffalo within a run. Navarro doubled in the eighth to bring in Dustin Martin to tie the score at 6. Satin is 6-for-11 in his past four games, with six walks. Box

NEW BRITAIN 10, BINGHAMTON 7: The B-Mets scored five runs in the ninth inning, but could not overcome an early deficit. After waiting through a 74-minute rain delay to start the game, the Rock Cats grabbed an early lead with two unearned runs in the first. New Britain took advantage of a throwing error from shortstop Sean Kazmar. Binghamton answered against New Britain starter Steve Hirschfeld in the fourth. After three consecutive singles loaded the bases, Juan Centeno got the B-Mets on the board with a sac fly. It was the only run they scratched out against Hirschfeld (3-4). The righty went five innings in his first win since mid-April. The Rock Cats tagged B-Mets starter Mark Cohoon for seven runs on eight hits, plating two in the fourth and three more in the fifth. Evan Bigley’s two-run single gave the Rock Cats a 7-1 lead and chased the southpaw from the game. Cohoon (2-5) walked two and struck out two. After the B-Mets plated a run in the eighth on a sac fly from Juan Lagares, the Rock Cats stretched their lead to eight runs with a three-run frame. New Britain pounded out five hits, including three doubles against Armando Rodriguez. The inning proved vital as the B-Mets put up five runs in the ninth against reliever Daniel Turpen. Josh Rodriguez tripled two runs home and scored on a groundout. After Jefry Marte singled, Raul Reyes crushed a two-run homer to cut the deficit to three. Turpen ended the game by inducing Lagares to ground out. Box

DAYTONA 4, ST. LUCIE 3: Daytona scored three-runs in the bottom of the ninth for the walk-off win, spoiling five scoreless innings from starter Erik Goeddel. Working a second inning of relief, Adam Kolarek started the final frame and surrendered two singles and a walk. Taylor Whitenton entered and surrendered a single and hit a batter before allowing a game-ending sacrifice fly to Greg Rohan. Box

CHARLESTON 5, SAVANNAH 3 (11 innings): In the 11th, the Dogs scored the go-ahead run on an RBI double from DH Kelvin De Leon off Gnats reliever Jeffrey Walters. Immediately thereafter, Gnats pitching coach Frank Viola was ejected by plate umpire Junior Valentine for arguing balls and strikes. Charleston added the fifth run on a sacrifice fly by Mason Williams. The earned runs allowed by Walters were his first of 2012.
