route to its season-high seventh straight win. Maikis De La Cruz opened the frame with a single against Miguel Fermin. Eudy Pina then walked. Gilbert Gomez's bunt advanced De La Cruz to third, although it forced out Pina at second. Evans then drove the first pitch he saw from Fermin to deep center for a sac fly. T.J. Chism worked a perfect ninth for the save for his second save in three days. The Mets have won 16 of 19. The game had remained scoreless until Jake Esch hung a 1-2 breaking ball to De La Cruz in the fifth. De La Cruz lined it over the left-field wall for his fourth homer. St. Lucie starter Domingo Tapia cruised, retiring 11 in a row at one point and 15 out of 16. He ran into trouble in the seventh after Matt Juengel led off with a single. Tapia rebounded to retire the next two batters, but Josh Adams singled to move Juengel into scoring position. No. 9 hitter Ryan Goetz then tied the score with a single that plated Juengel. Beck Wheeler, activated off the disabled list earlier in the day, faced rehabbing Marlin Adeiny Hechavarria with the tying run at third base.

BINGHAMTON 4, HARRISBURG 3 (12 innings): Dustin Martin rolled a walk-off single through the hole on the right side to give Binghamton a 12-inning victory. Martin’s hit, Binghamton’s 15th, ended a four-hour, seven-minute contest that saw the teams combine to strand 28 runners. With the game 3, reliever Jimmy Barthmaier issued a one-out walk to Raul Reyes. Sean Kazmar ended the righty’s night and pushed the eventual winning run to second with a single. Southpaw Patrick McCoy entered to face Martin, who fell behind 0-2 before rolling the next pitch weakly to the right side. The grounder evaded first baseman Justin Bloxom and second baseman Jonathan Tucker and rolled into right field untouched. Reyes scored from second to give Binghamton their fourth walk-off win this season. The game was marred my missed opportunities by both teams. The Senators went 0-for-15 with runners in scoring position and stranded 14 runners, including runners at third in the 10th and 11th innings. Binghamton did not fare much better, leaving 14 aboard.
