In the bottom half, Matt Tracy walked the first four batters and had a stretch of 13 consecutive balls. The B-Mets scored their first run when Alonzo Harris walked to force in a run. They plated another on Xorge Carillo's double-play groundout to pull within 3-2 without a hit in the inning. Mazzoni and Tracy then found their grooves and tossed three scoreless innings apiece.

Darrell Ceciliani extended his hitting streak to 13 games. Box

TOLEDO 4, BUFFALO 1 (10 innings): Jeurys Familia allowed one run on three hits and two walks in a career-high eight innings and struck out a season-high nine, and the Bisons forced extra innings with a run in the bottom of the ninth, but came up short. Manny Acosta suffered the loss after being charged with three runs in the 10th. Trailing 1-0, Adam Loewen opened the bottom of the ninth with a single. He advanced to second when Chris Bootcheck hit Zach Lutz with a pitch. Loewen scored the tying run on Valentino Pascucci's ensuing sacrifice bunt, when Bootcheck threw away the baseball. With Lutz and Pascucci in scoring position and no out, Josh Satin was intentionally walked. However, Buffalo stranded the bases loaded as Matt den Dekker and Matt Tuiasosopo consecutively struck out and Rob Johnson flied out. Familia has allowed two runs in his past 20 2/3 innings. Box

BUFFALO 17, TOLEDO 1: Four Bisons homers in the eighth made it a laugher as Jeremy Hefner pitched solidly. The scoring output fell one shy of the team record at home, which came in an 18-3 win against Toledo on June 2, 2000. Leading off the eighth, Oswaldo Navarro sent a fly ball to deep left field that cleared the fences for a home run. It was the first pinch-hit homer for the Herd since Jordany Valdespin's long ball on May 19. Following Navarro in the eighth, Adam Loewen had a solo shot for the first back-to-back Bisons homers since June 29. Matt den Dekker contributed a three-run homer and Fred Lewis also went deep in the frame. Matt Tuiasosopo went 4-for-4 with three RBIs. Hefner (5-2) allowed the minimum number of batters through four innings, benefiting from three inning-ending double plays. Hefner limited the Mud Hens to one run on six hits and a walk while striking out four in seven innings. Box

TRENTON 5, BINGHAMTON 4: Reliever Robert Carson balked in the deciding run in the top of the ninth as the B-Mets failed to hold two late-game leads. With the score tied at 4, Rob Segedin greeted Carson in the ninth with a double, but was nabbed attempting to advance to third on Yadil Mujica’s groundball to short. Jose Pirela made up for the gaffe and put runners on the corners with a single. With a 1-0 count against Addison Maruszak, Carson never came to the set position on his second pitch and was called for a balk. The misstep forced in Mujica with the tiebreaking run. Binghamton had opened the scoring in the third against Trenton starter Dellin Betances. Juan Centeno doubled with one out and came home when Reese Havens doubled. B-Mets starter Greg Peavey kept the Thunder in check for five scoreless frames. Trenton broke through in the sixth, plating a run on three consecutive singles. In seventh, J.R. Murphy gave Trenton the lead with a solo homer against Peavey to start the inning. Mujica doubled with one out and Pirela doubled him home, ending Peavey’s night. He allowed three runs on eight hits over 6 1/3 innings. Armando Rodriguez recorded two outs to keep the deficit at two runs. Binghamton struck back against Betances in the seventh. Allan Dykstra doubled and Michael Fisher chased Betances with a walk. Lee Hyde entered and bobbled a sac bunt by Dustin Martin, loading the bases. Wilfredo Tovar, hitting .474 with runners in scoring position entering the game, delivered a game-tying two-run double. Centeno gave Binghamton the lead with a sac fly.

Jason Bay went 0-for-2 with two walks in what should be his final rehab game. Box

Rob Segedin gave Trenton the decisive lead with an RBI single. It was Trenton's first lead since scoring the first run just three pitches into the game.

Binghamton responded with a three-run third against Mikey O’Brien. After singling, Wilfredo Tovar stole second and scored on Juan Lagares' single. Reese Havens then launched a two-run homer, his eighth long ball of the season. Trenton countered in the fourth. Addison Maruszak and Almonte started the inning with back-to-back homers to tie the score at 3. It marked the third time this season Gorski had allowed consecutive homers.

Wilmer Flores added an RBI double against reliever Graham Stoneburner in the fifth. Gorski nearly lost the lead in the sixth, his final frame. With two outs, Mesa bashed a solo homer. Luke Murton doubled and tried to score on a single by Murphy, but was gunned down at the plate by left fielder Eric Campbell. Gorski allowed four runs (three earned) on nine hits. He struck out five.

State College evened the score in the third as Tyler Gaffney doubled and Dave Valesente followed with an RBI single. A half-inning later, Boyd singled and Ponce walked. Eudy Pina then doubled, scoring Boyd for a 2-1 lead. Poor defense in the fourth cost the Cyclones three unearned runs.

Yhonathan Barrios came up with runners on the corners and one out and grounded into a fielder's choice, allowing Stallings to score. Jared Lakind walked to place runners on first and second with two outs. With Alex Fuselier batting, Robles threw a wild pitch, advancing both runners.

BUFFALO 4, NORFOLK 2: Back-to-back singles by Sean Kazmar and Corey Wimberly began a third-inning threat. Brad Emaus then bunted the runners ahead, and Fred Lewis delivered a two-run single. A half-inning later, after a double by Lew Ford, former major leaguer Miguel Tejada had an RBI single that cut the Bisons' lead to 2-1. The Tides tacked on another run in the fifth, courtesy of Bill Hall's solo homer against Dylan Owen. However, after Oswaldo Navarro singled in the bottom of the fifth, Kazmar delivered a sacrifice bunt. And Wimberly followed with a run-scoring double. The Herd tacked on the final run in the sixth, on a solo home run by Rob Johnson. Bisons relievers Justin Hampson, Manny Acosta and Fernando Cabrera combined for 4 1/3 scoreless innings. "Our bullpen has been phenomenal lately, especially Cabrera," Wally Backman said. "He's built to be a closer, so to see him deliver the way he is, it's great." Cabrera is a perfect 14-for-14 in save opportunities. Lewis is four plate appearances shy of qualifying for the sixth-highest average (.305) in the International League. Owen is the third straight Bisons starter to last 4 2/3 innings, following Matt Harvey and Jenrry Mejia. Box

TRENTON 3, BINGHAMTON 2 (10 innings): The B-Mets were one out away from securing their first road series sweep of the season, but Shane Brown ripped a two-run single in the bottom of the 10th to give Trenton a walk-off victory. After taking the lead in the top half of the extra frame on a throwing error by third baseman Jose Pirela, the B-Mets looked to Adrian Rosario for the save. The righty recorded two quick outs before Zoilo Almonte dumped a single to right. After Melky Mesa walked, Rosario uncorked a wild pitch, allowing both runners to advance. Brown followed by ripping a 2-0 pitch into left for the game-winner. For the eighth straight game, the B-Mets plated the first run. Matt den Dekker led off the fourth inning with a double against starter Brett Marshall. He moved to third on a groundout and scored when Marshall unleashed a wild pitch. It was the only run Marshall allowed in the game. Binghamton matched a season high by striking out 13 times. B-Mets starter Greg Peavey labored through five innings. The righty dealt with at least one runner in each of his frames. After navigating through four scoreless, Peavey allowed his lone run in the fifth. Jeff Farnham led off with a single and scored three batters later on a sac fly by David Adams. The game remained tied at 1 through nine innings thanks to strong bullpen work. Armando Rodriguez took over for Peavey and struck out four over three scoreless innings. Brad Holt navigated around a one-out double to post a scoreless ninth. Preston Claiborne held the fort down for Trenton in the seventh and eighth with scoreless innings. Lee Hyde pitched a perfect ninth before his defense failed him in the 10th. Juan Lagares started the inning with a single and moved to second on sac bunt. Joe Bonfe followed by sending a chopper to third. Pirela fielded it cleanly, but fired an errant throw to first, allowing Lagares to score from second. Pirela committed another error on the next play, but was bailed out when Pedro Zapata bounced into an inning-ending double play. Rosario (0-1) was saddled with his first loss and first blown save as a B-Met. The runs allowed snapped an 8 1/- inning scoreless streak to start the righty’s Double-A career. The loss snapped Binghamton’s three-game winning streak and dropped them back to one game under .500. Third baseman Jefry Marte, who left Saturday's game after taking a groundball off his right hand, did not play Sunday. He is expected back in the lineup Tuesday. Box

ST. LUCIE 10, CHARLOTTE 3 (14 innings): Hamilton Bennett tossed three scoreless relief innings to improve to 6-0.
