Vaughn
Ramon Cabrera gave Erie a lead with an RBI groundout, but that was Erie's lone run of the game. Binghamton took the lead in the third against Erie starter Ramon Garcia. With Danny Muno breaking from first base, Vaughn launched a payoff pitch over the left-field wall. Vaughn’s blast, his third since returning from the disabled list on Aug. 5, gave the B-Mets a 2-1 advantage. Travis Taijeron padded Binghamton’s lead by ripping a solo homer in the sixth. Cohoon sailed through four scoreless innings before facing his biggest challenge in the sixth. Cabrera reached with two outs on an infield single, and Cohoon hit Tyler Collins and walked James McCann to load the bases. The southpaw pitched himself out of trouble, inducing Wade Gaynor to bounce back to the mound. The B-Mets then enjoyed a three-run seventh. Wilfredo Tovar scampered to second when Daniel Fields dropped his fly ball in shallow center. Reliever Justin Souza entered and walked Muno before surrendering an RBI double to Josh Rodriguez. Vaughn capped the inning by lacing a two-run single. Chasen Bradford contributed two perfect relief innings. Cohoon (8-3) struck out three while allowing one run on five hits. He has gone 4-0 with a 1.78 ERA in his last four starts. Vaughn is hitting .360 (9-for-25) with three homers and 11 RBIs since returning from the DL. Box

the bottom of the 12th against Iden Nazario to end the 4-hour, 25-minute game. The Mets trailed 7-2 in the fifth before scoring four times in the frame to cut the deficit to a run. Gilbert Gomez had a two-out, two-run double in the seventh to tie the score at 8. Gomez finished 3-for-6 with two RBIs. Johnson was 2-for-6 with two runs scored and two RBIs. Dustin Lawley had two hits and an RBI. Jayce Boyd had two hits with two RBIs. Kevin Plawecki went 1-for-4 with two runs and an RBI. Alex Panteliodis allowed seven runs (three earned) on eight hits and two walks in 4 2/3 innings. Shawn Teufel picked up the victory with two scoreless relief innings. Box

HICKORY 2, SAVANNAH 1: Joey Gallo blasted his South Atlantic League-leading 27th homer to break a 1-all tie. Hunter Carnevale (0-3) surrendered the decisive ninth-inning long ball. The Gnats scored their lone run in the first inning. Jorge Rivero reached on shortstop Nick Urbanus' fielding error on a line drive. Rivero scored on Brian Harrison’s single. The Crawdads evened the score at 1 in the fourth against Luis Cessa. Gallo walked with one out and scored on David Lyon's single.

KINGSPORT 7, GREENEVILLE 2: Joe Tuschak went 2-for-4 with three RBIs and Michael Bernal capped the scoring with a two-run homer in the eighth. Box

BROOKLYN 9, STATE COLLEGE 2: LJ Mazzilli went 4-for-5 with two runs scored and two RBIs in the victory. State College had taken the lead in the third in bizarre fashion. Steven Ramos bunted down the first-base line. Starting pitcher Carlos Valdez threw to first and Ramos was called safe. Alex Sanchez thought Ramos was out and went to throw the ball around the infield. His throw went into left field and Ramos broke for second. Left fielder Jonathan Clark retrieved the ball but overthrew Mazzilli covering second. As the ball headed toward the Cyclones dugout, Ramos started toward third. He then noticed nobody was covering home and headed for the plate. Eddie Rohan came up with the ball after it caromed off the front of the dugout and raced home, but Ramos narrowly beat him, giving the Spikes a 1-0 lead. The official scoring: a bunt single and two Cyclones errors. Brooklyn answered in a four-run second, thanks to three hits and two errors. Rohan and Anthony Chavez doubled. Patrick Biondi walked and Gavin Cecchini grounded into a run-scoring fielder's choice. Mazzilli then singled and right fielder Luis Perez allowed the ball to get behind him as Biondi scored. Shortstop Cesar Valera's error on James Roche's grounder extended Brooklyn’s lead to 4-1. In the fourth, Rohan again doubled, and moved to third on a groundout. Biondi then reached on a bunt, scoring Rohan and giving the Cyclones a four-run cushion. State College scored a run in the seventh against David Wynn to pull within 6-2. In a three-run eighth, Cecchini doubled and scored on Mazzilli's single. Sanchez then belted a two-run homer. Box

seven hits and one walk in a 57-pitch effort over three-plus innings. Mazzoni had missed 24 games due to right elbow neuritis. With father Tim Teufel watching from the stands, left-hander Shawn Teufel tossed three scoreless relief innings. Adam Kolarek added two scoreless frames.

The B-Mets did not muster a hit until Darrell Ceciliani's one-out single to center in the sixth off the end of his bat. The other hit belonged to Cesar Puello in the seventh, after originally being scored an error. The hit extended Puello's hitting streak to 13 games. The five-run first against Mazzoni began with two hits and Tyler Austin's sac fly. With a runner on third, J.R. Murphy sent a chopper back to the mound. Mazzoni fielded cleanly and threw to third, but Josh Rodriguez muffed the throw, allowing Jose Pirela to dive back safely. The misplay led to three unearned runs on Mazzoni’s tab when Slade Heathcott chipped in with an RBI groundout and Reegie Corona laced a two-run single. Box

HICKORY 4, SAVANNAH 3 (8 innings)
HICKORY 5, SAVANNAH 3: In Game 1, the Gnats rallied with a two-run seventh to tie the score at 3 against Crawdads reliever Cody Kendall and force extra innings. The tying run came via an error by Hickory shortstop Luis Marte. In extra innings, however, the Crawdads took advantage of an error by Gnats shortstop Phillip Evans to win the game. With two outs in the 8th, Joey Gallo blooped a double into shallow center to put the winning run in scoring position. Ryan Rua followed with a hard-hit ball up the middle. Evans reached the grounder but drop it trying to take it from his glove. The error allowed Rua to reach and Gallo to score all the way from second. Savannah reliever Jake Kuebler (0-2) took the loss. In Game 2, Savannah took a 2-1 lead in the second on Cole Frenzel's two-run homer, but the 'Dads plated three runs in the bottom half against Luis Cessa. Box 1, Box 2
