INDIANAPOLIS 6, BUFFALO 0: Indianapolis opened a four-run second inning against Jeurys Familia with four consecutive hits. The inning included a wild pitch and two-run single by Chase d'Arnaud. An inning later, Brandon Boggs ripped a one-out double off Familia, leading to a run that made it 5-0. Jeff Stevens replaced Familia for the fourth. Indians starter Jeff Locke allowed four hits over seven scoreless innings. Bisons manager Wally Backman joined Familia in the clubhouse prematurely. Backman was ejected in the fourth inning. Reliever Pedro Beato did toss two scoreless innings, allowing one hit while striking out four. Rehabbing Mike Baxter and recently demoted Mike Nickeas each notched a double for the Herd, although Buffalo mustered only five hits. Baxter went 1-for-4 and played a full game in left field. He is hitting .375 during the Triple-A portion of his rehab assignment. Lucas Duda went 0-for-4 and is now 1-for-12 since joining Buffalo. Box

PORTLAND 5, BINGHAMTON 1: Portland pounced on B-Mets starter Greg Peavey as the game's first four batters reached safely. Jackie Bradley walked and Jeremy Hazelbaker gave Portland the early lead with a two-run homer. Marquez Smith followed with a double and scored when Reynaldo Rodriguez doubled. Binghamton responded against Portland starter Jeremy Kehrt in the third. Wilfredo Tovar doubled, took third on Juan Lagares' single and scored when Eric Campbell grounded out. Peavey settled down after allowing an unearned run in the second. The righty retired 14 of the final 15 batters he faced and completed six innings. Portland scratched out its final run against him in the fifth. Hazelbaker reached on a bunt single, stole second and third and scored on Smith’s second sacrifice fly. Kehrt ran into trouble in the sixth. His night ended after issuing a pair of two-out walks. Michael Olmsted entered and induced Tovar to bounce into a fielder’s choice to end the inning. Peavey (4-7) allowed five runs (four earned) on five hits. He struck out four and gave way to Armando Rodriguez in the seventh. Rodriguez allowed two hits and struck out four over two scoreless frames. Adam Kolarek made his Double-A debut in the ninth, striking out two in a perfect inning. Box

ST. LUCIE 8, LAKELAND 3: Aderlin Rodriguez went 2-for-4 with four RBIs, including a bases-clearing double that gave the Mets a 3-2 lead in the fourth. Robbie Shields then doubled to plate Rodriguez and open a two-run lead. The Mets pulled away with a four-run fifth. Cory Vaughn singled to score T.J. Rivera, and Richard Lucas doubled to score Danny Muno and Vaughn for a 7-2 advantage. Rodriguez followed with an RBI single. Tyler Pill tossed seven innings and allowed two runs and seven hits with two walks and seven strikeouts. He won his fifth consecutive game. John Church allowed an unearned run in two innings. Rivera went 2-for-5 and scored two runs. Muno went 1-for-1 with two runs scored and three walks. Winners of five straight, St. Lucie again hosts Lakeland on Sunday as Logan Verrett makes his St. Lucie debut. Box

ROME 9, SAVANNAH 8: Randy Fontanez and Chasen Bradford combined to allow six runs in the seventh as the Gnats squandered a 7-3 lead. Dustin Lawley, Gregory Pron and Cole Frenzel drove in two runs apiece in the loss. Box

KINGSPORT 9, BRISTOL 5: 2012 first-round pick Gavin Cecchini belted a grand slam for his first professional homer, opening a 6-1 lead. The two-out rally in the fifth began as Bradley Marquez reached on a fielding error by Bristol shortstop Nick Basto. A single by Eris Peguero and a walk to Maikis De La Cruz loaded the bases. Cecchini and Sox hurler Tyler Kibby then battled to a full count before Cecchini -- batting cleanup for the first time this season -- cranked Kibby's offering over the left-center wall. Kingsport starter Corey Oswalt put together the deepest outing by a K-Met this season. Oswalt went 7 2/3 innings, allowing three runs on nine hits and two walks. Bristol touched up reliever Christian Chivilli for two runs and had the potential tying run at the plate when Chivilli induced Basto into a game-ending flyout. Marquez made his first start in more than a month, after spending time on the DL with a leg injury. He won't be with the team much longer. Marquez soon reports to Lubbock, where he is a wide receiver on Texas Tech's football team. He went 2-for-4, reached on an error and scored a run while batting leadoff. Box

MAHONING VALLEY 3, BROOKLYN 2: David Wynn surrendered a two-out, two-run homer in the eighth to give the Scrappers the come-from-behind win. After being shut out Friday, Brooklyn's bats continued to struggle. The Cyclones did not collect a hit after the fourth inning. Brandon Nimmo opened the game with a single and scored on Kevin Plawecki's two-out double. The lead was short-lived. Mahoning Valley drew even in the second. Brooklyn starter Hansel Robles surrendered a leadoff double to Richard Stock. Logan Vick's single then put runners on the corners with none out. After a strikeout, Andrew Campbell singled to even the score. In the third, Eudy Pina had a leadoff single and moved into scoring position on a groundout by Phillip Evans. Jayce Boyd's two-out single scored Pina to put Brooklyn in front, 2-1. Robles departed after five innings, having allowed one run on five hits while striking out seven. John Mincone entered and found himself in a jam. Joseph Wendle and Joe Sever started the sixth with singles, but the southpaw worked his way out of trouble. Mincone added a spotless seventh to extend his scoreless streak to 17 1/3 innings dating to June 22. In the eighth, the Scrappers broke through. Wynn allowed a walk and three hits, including the two-run homer by Sever. Box
