go-ahead run in a three-run eighth as the B-Mets won their fifth straight. Binghamton opened the scoring in the fourth against Taylor Rogers as T.J. Rivera had a two-out double and Lawley followed with an RBI single. New Britain evened the score in the sixth against Rainy Lara. Jorge Polanco singled, Nate Hanson walked and Mike Gonzales singled to load the bases. Ronny Rodriguez followed with a sacrifice fly. In the eighth, Edgar Ibarra hit Boyd with a pitch to start the frame. The southpaw then surrendered a single to Rivera. Lawley doubled to drive in the go-ahead run. After a groundout, Wilfredo Tovar's sacrifice fly plated Rivera. Kyle Johnson then legged out an infield single that brought Lawley home all the way from second for a 4-1 lead. Lara matched his season high with 7 2/3 innings. He allowed one run, but did not factor into the decision. Chase Huchingson (4-1) recorded the final out in the eighth. Cody Satterwhite worked a scoreless ninth for his 15th save. Box

CHARLOTTE 8, ST. LUCIE 5: T.J. Chism (0-3) surrendered a grand slam to Johnny Field in the ninth to suffer the blown save. With St. Lucie leading 5-4 lead, Granden Goetzman led off with a single. Chism then struck out Jake DePew. Chism looked like he had a second out when Gilbert Gomez dove for a ball in center off the bat of Juniel Querecuto. But the ball popped out of Gomez’s glove and runners were at first and second with one out. Tommy Coyle then drew a walk to load the bases. Field followed with the decisive homer. The Mets had jumped on the Stone Crabs early, taking a 4-0 lead. In the second, Phillip Evans grounded into a bases-loaded double play that plated the opening run. The Mets plated three more in the third. Maikis De La Cruz scored from third on a missed pickoff play at first and Jairo Perez and Jared King had run-scoring hits. The 4-0 lead unraveled in the fifth. Mets starter Angel Cuan surrendered a two-out, two-run double to DePew. DePew then scored on a single as the Crabs pulled within 4-3. Coyle appeared to fly out to end the frame, but Gomez dropped the ball. His throw back to the infield went past three defenders and to the backstop, allowing the tying run to score all the way from first base. The Mets appeared poised to respond in a big way in the bottom of the fifth, when they loaded the bases with no outs for the second time in the game. But Perez grounded into a double play and the Mets again only got one run. De La Cruz and L.J. Mazzilli each had three hits. Box

JOHNSON CITY 5, KINGSPORT 3: Vicente Lupo produced a three-run homer in the first inning, but the K-Mets were silent the rest of the way. Starter Yoan Gonzalez allowed four runs in four innings. Box

STATEN ISLAND 2, BROOKLYN 1 (10 innings): Brad Wieck surrendered a walk-off homer to Chris Breen in the 10th. Left fielder Michael Conforto threw out Connor Spencer at the plate to preserve a 1-all tie in the eighth. Conforto's RBI single in the third inning had opened the scoring. The Baby Bombers evened the score in the bottom half of that frame with an unearned run after a throwing error by second baseman Tyler Moore, then a run-scoring wild pitch by Alberto Baldonado. Carlos Valdez tossed 3 2/3 scoreless relief innings. Third baseman Jhoan Urena was ejected before the game's first pitch. Box

GCL CARDINALS 4, GCL METS 0 (10 innings): The Mets' only hit came on a one-out bunt single in the fifth by Miguel Leal. Two walks, two errors and a wild pitch contributed to a four-run top of the 10th that broke a scoreless tie. Mets starter Kevin Canelon tossed 6 1/3 scoreless innings. Box

CHARLOTTE 11, ST. LUCIE 8: Trailing 8-2, the Mets scored six eighth-inning runs to pull even. However, the Stone Crabs answered with three runs in the bottom half to retake the lead. Johnny Field scored the go-ahead run when St. Lucie reliever Beck Wheeler threw a wild pitch with the bases loaded. After Wheeler departed, Granden Goetzman hit a two-out, two-run single against Ryan Fraser. In the top of the eighth, L.J. Mazzilli and Cam Maron singled against Nick Sawyer. Gavin Cecchini and Jared King then drew consecutive four-pitch walks to force in Mazzilli and make it 8-3. Jose Molina entered and walked Phillip Evans, also on four pitches, to plate Maron. Gilbert Gomez followed with a two-run double and the Mets trailed 8-6. Eudy Pina delivered an RBI single to pull St. Lucie within a run. Molina then walked Jeff McNeil to load the bases. Ryan Garton was summoned to face Maikis De La Cruz with no outs and the bases loaded. He induced a 4-6-3 double play as Gomez scored the tying run. Garton got the Crabs out of further trouble when Mazzilli flied out to leave Pina on third base. Colton Reavis shut down the Mets in order in the ninth. Angel Cuan, who was demoted to St. Lucie from Binghamton, started for the Mets. He allowed three runs in four innings. Mazzilli and Pina had two-hit games.

BINGHAMTON 4, READING 3: The B-Mets broke a tie score in the eighth and hung on for the victory. One night removed from blowing a one-run lead in the ninth, B-Mets closer Jeff Walters stranded two in the final frame. After Hector Nerris blanked Binghamton for three

perfect innings, the B-Mets scratched back against Kyle Simon in the eighth. With the score even at 3, Darrell Ceciliani hit a sharp infield single to first to start the inning. He moved into scoring position with his 29th stolen base of the season and advanced to third on a wild pitch. Following a one-out walk to Wilfredo Tovar, Alonzo Harris stroked a grounder to shortstop. Harris beat out the potential inning-ending double play, allowing Ceciliani to score the go-ahead run. Adam Kolarek worked around a one-out walk in a scoreless eighth before handing off to Walters for the ninth. Anthony Hewitt greeted Walters with an infield single and Troy Hanzawa lined a single to left, putting runners on the corners with one out. The right-hander fanned pinch-hitter Kelly Dugan and induced Albert Cartwright to pop out to catcher Blake Forsythe to end the game. Bradford (2-1) collected the victory, while Walters earned his 34th save. Starter Darin Gorski allowed three runs on seven hits in six innings in the no-decision. Box

eighth on Rick Teasly's wild pitch, which plated Ismael Tijerina. Cyclones starter Dario Alvarez allowed one unearned run on four hits in six innings. In the fourth, Renegades cleanup hitter Oscar Hernandez reached on third baseman Juan Gamboa's fielding error and ultimately scored on Granden Goetzman's sacrifice fly. Patrick Biondi led off the eighth with a single. Brooklyn manager Rich Donnelly then elected to have Tijerina bunt, and Tijerina reached on an error. With two on base, a failed pickoff attempt advanced both runners. Gavin Cecchini then hit the ball deep enough to center field to drive in Biondi and even the score. With Tijerina on third, Teasly threw a wild pitch, allowing Tijerina to score to give Brooklyn a 2-1 lead. Matt Oberste followed with an RBI single.
