two-run ninth inning. It marked the first time this season Binghamton won when trailing after eight innings. Darrell Ceciliani started the ninth-inning rally with a single against Gregory Infante. Ceciliani stole second and moved to third on a groundout. Travis Taijeron's bloop RBI single tied the score. After Kyle Johnson entered as a pinch runner, Xorge Carrillo walked and Brandon Nimmo singled to load the bases with one out. Herrera came through with the sacrifice fly to right field to plate Johnson. In the eighth inning, Herrera had homered against Tyler Ybarra to cut the B-Mets' deficit to 3-2. Chase Huchingson (2-1) tossed 1 1/3 scoreless relief innings to close out the game. B-Mets starter Tyler Pill allowed three runs on six hits and struck out five in 7 2/3 innings. He extended his unbeaten streak to 13 games. Box

DUNEDIN at ST. LUCIE: The teams will play a doubleheader Wednesday at 10:30 a.m.

SAVANNAH 8, LEXINGTON 3: Rob Whalen improved to 6-0 with a 1.65 ERA in the South Atlantic League by limiting Lexington to two unearned runs on two hits, two walks and a hit batter in seven innings.

time since July 12. Meisner allowed one run on three hits and a walk while striking out six in five innings. Tomas Nido had a one-out single in the third and advanced to second base on a wild pitch. Anthony Chavez followed with a shot down the first-base line that was too hot to handle and Nido scored for a 1-0 lead. With Chavez on second base due to the fielding error, Joe Tuschak doubled to push the advantage to 2-0. Tuschak had been sidelined with a hamstring injury since July 18. Lowell plated its lone run in the bottom half courtesy of Sam Travis' two-out RBI double. Meisner retired the final seven batters he faced to collect his first win since July 30, 2013, when he was pitching in the Gulf Coast League. In the sixth, Tuschak and Michael Conforto walked. Michael Bernal plated Tuschak with a single. Tyler Moore drove in Conforto with a single. Relievers Carlos Valdez and Brandon Welch combined to allow one baserunner in three innings. Shane Bay tossed a scoreless ninth for his ninth save. Conforto's 10-game hitting streak to begin his pro career was snapped. Box

GCL METS 8, GCL METS 5 (six innings): Dash Winnigham had a two-run double in a three-run first and the Mets never looked back en route to a rain-shortened win. Winningham added a third-inning sacrifice fly as the Mets took a 4-0 lead. Box

CHARLOTTE 3, BUFFALO 2 (10 innings): With two outs in the bottom of the 10th, Jack Egbert relieved Josh Edgin. Hector Gimenez singled to score Greg Golson, and Charlotte knocked off the Bisons. Edgin had replaced Dylan Owen heading into the 10th, and Golson took advantage with a leadoff double. A sacrifice bunt sent Golson to third, giving Gimenez the opportunity to display his late heroics. The Bisons had a chance of their own in the top of the 10th, but could not capitalize. Lucas May opened the extra frame with a double, but Knights pitcher Gregory Infante was able to retire the next three Bisons batters in order. Down 2-1 entering the top of the ninth, Valentino Pascucci opened the frame with a double. Michael Fisher pinch ran. Josh Satin then ripped a single, scoring Fisher and tying the score. The Knights had opened the scoring with a first-inning Dan Johnson single that scored Golson. It took the Bisons seven innings to produce any runs. Trailing 1-0 through six, Matt Tuiasosopo produced a double that scored Pascucci. The Knights responded with a run in the eighth. Garrett Olson started for the Bisons and produced a quality start, allowing four hits in 6 2/3 innings. Olson had 10 strikeouts and one walk. He received a no-decision. Edgin was charged with the loss. Box

BINGHAMTON 11, NEW HAMPSHIRE 4: The B-Mets pounded out 13 hits, including three home runs, and starter Gonzalez Germen fired seven innings. Matt den Dekker started the attack in a five-run first with a leadoff single off Deck McGuire. After a wild pitch moved him to second, Josh Rodriguez gave the B-Mets the lead for good with an RBI single. Raul Reyes followed with a hit, and Jefry Marte doubled Binghamton’s lead with a run-scoring single. After McGuire walked Reese Havens to load the bases, Juan Lagares produced another run with a groundout. Eric Campbell ended McGuire’s night with a two-run double. The righty recorded only one out, his shortest career outing. By the time Fernando Hernandez struck out Pedro Zapata to end the frame, the B-Mets held a 5-0 lead. Given a five-run edge, Germen got off to a bumpy start. The right-hander allowed two runs on three hits while walking two in the bottom half. He escaped further damage by inducing Brad McElroy to fly out with the bases loaded to end the inning. Den Dekker kicked the lead back to five with a long-overdue homer in the fourth. The center fielder crushed the first pitch he saw from Matt Daly to right for a two-run shot. It was Binghamton’s first homer since May 3 -- a drought of 67 innings and 277 plate appearances. Rodriguez kept the offense rolling with another homer in the sixth, a three-run shot. Campbell added a solo blast off Aaron Loup in the eighth. It was Binghamton’s first multi-homer game since it hit three against Portland on April 15. Germen settled down after his spotty first inning, facing the minimum from the second through the sixth. He surrendered one run on three consecutive hits in the seventh before inducing A.J. Jimenez to bounce into a fielder’s choice to end his night. Germen (1-1) allowed three runs on eight hits and struck out three in seven frames to earn his first Double-A victory. Edgar Ramirez took over in the eighth and wrapped up the game, allowing one run on three hits in two innings. Mike McDade tagged him for a solo home run. The B-Mets (16-17) look to secure the series win Saturday. Left-hander Darin Gorski opposes right-hander Yohan Pino. Box

ST. LUCIE 11, BREVARD COUNTY 2: Richard Lucas had three hits and Danny Muno, Robbie Shields and Francisco Pena drove in two runs apiece. Ryan Fraser tossed 3 2/3 scoreless, no-hit relief innings. Box

HICKORY 3, SAVANNAH 1: Tyler Pill struck out 10 while limiting Hickory to two runs in six innings but suffered the loss. T.J. Rivera homered to account for the Gnats' lone run. Box
