the B-Mets won despite committing a season-high five errors. It marked the most errors committed by the B-Mets since a five-error game against Akron on May 15, 2013. Dustin Lawley matched a franchise record with four errors, last done by Ty Wiggington at New Hampshire on June 24, 2000. Marcus Lemon had a first-inning solo homer against B-Mets starter Hansel Robles. Binghamton struck back against Warwick Saupold in the third. Kyle Johnson produced a ground-rule double, moved to third on Brandon Nimmo’s infield single and scored when Herrera beat out a potential double play. Lawley capped the inning with an RBI single, giving the B-Mets a 2-1 lead.

In the bottom half, Lemon struck again, doubling off the fence. Robles then surrendered a game-tying two-out RBI single to Devon Travis. In the fourth, Corey Jones reached safely when B-Mets catcher Xorge Carrillo failed to grab his pop up in front of the plate. Jones took third on Dean Green's single and scored on Francisco Martinez’s two-out single. Binghamton made it 3-all in the sixth when Jayce Boyd used a fielder’s choice to plate Lawley. Erie retook the lead in the bottom half, though. Ryan Fraser walked Jones, who scored thanks to three errors by Lawley at third base in a two-batter span. Trailing for the third time in the game, Binghamton grabbed the lead in the seventh against reliever Guido Knudson. Following Nimmo's one-out single, Herrera lifted a 1-2 pitch into right field, barely clearing the fence for a go-ahead two-run homer.

Randy Fontanez preserved the lead with two scoreless innings. Satterwhite quickly registered two outs in the ninth. He then walked Daniel Fields on four pitches, surrendered a single to Travis and walked Ramon Cabrera to load the bases. With the tying run on third, Jones sent a bouncer up the middle. Shortstop T.J. Rivera dove to his left and smothered the grounder. While rolling onto the outfield grass, he flipped the ball to Herrera at second in time for the out. Fraser (2-1) allowed one unearned run without surrendering a hit in his lone inning. Robles gave up three runs (two earned) on eight hits over five innings. Box

eight runs in three innings, including five in the first. Dustin Lawley launched two homers in the defeat. He deposited a 2-1 pitch from New Britain starter Jason Wheeler over the left-field wall in the second inning, cutting New Britain’s lead to four. He struck again in the fourth with another solo blast, his third homer in three at-bats dating to Monday. New Britain kept up the pressure in the fourth by getting the first five batters safely aboard. After Mike Kvasnicka blasted a two-run homer, Robles loaded the bases on a pair of walks and a single. Reliever Ryan Fraser entered and collected the final three outs of the inning, while allowing one inherited runner to score. Trailing by six in the sixth, Jayce Boyd bounced an RBI triple off the right-center wall for his first three-bagger of the season.

Gomez
come-from-behind win. Trailing 4-3 entering the ninth, Gavin Cecchini flied out and Phillip Evans grounded out to open the inning. Maikis De La Cruz then singled and Jeff McNeil walked. Eudy Pina followed with a game-tying RBI single. Gilbert Gomez then produced a two-run double.

SAVANNAH 9, CHARLESTON 8: After usually invincible Akeel Morris allowed a three-run homer to Gosuke Katoh in the top of the ninth, Savannah answered with three runs in the bottom half for the walk-off win.

Morris had allowed only one run in 36 2/3 innings this season before the three-run ninth by Charleston. Cruzado also contributed a two-run homer in the second inning. Box

GREENEVILLE 4, KINGSPORT 3: The K-Mets fought back from a 4-0 deficit, getting an RBI single from Wuilmer Becerra in the sixth and a two-run single from Pedro Perez in the seventh.
