runs in the fourth and Wilsen Palacios tossed seven scoreless innings. Binghamton’s magic number to clinch a playoff spot sits at two. Erie jumped on Fulmer in the first. With Jason Krizan on second, Dean Green ripped an RBI double. Fulmer surrendered a single before retiring Corey Jones to limit the damage to one run. Steven Moya started Erie’s fourth inning with his league-leading 32nd homer. Fulmer followed by surrendering back-to-back singles. He then issued walks to Marcus Lemon and Jamie Johnson. The latter forced in a run and ended his night after 3 1/3 innings. Adam Kolarek entered and struggled to put out the fire. Jason Krizan greeted the lefty with a run-producing fielder’s choice. Devon Travis walked to reload the bases and Dean Green delivered a two-run single. Moya capped the six-run inning in which Erie batted around by lacing an RBI single. Binghamton’s only threat came in the third when Brian Burgamy singled. Brandon Nimmo attempted to score from second, but was gunned down by Johnson in center field. Hansel Robles contributed three scoreless relief innings. Box

CHARLOTTE 11, ST. LUCIE 8: Trailing 8-2, the Mets scored six eighth-inning runs to pull even. However, the Stone Crabs answered with three runs in the bottom half to retake the lead. Johnny Field scored the go-ahead run when St. Lucie reliever Beck Wheeler threw a wild pitch with the bases loaded. After Wheeler departed, Granden Goetzman hit a two-out, two-run single against Ryan Fraser. In the top of the eighth, L.J. Mazzilli and Cam Maron singled against Nick Sawyer. Gavin Cecchini and Jared King then drew consecutive four-pitch walks to force in Mazzilli and make it 8-3. Jose Molina entered and walked Phillip Evans, also on four pitches, to plate Maron. Gilbert Gomez followed with a two-run double and the Mets trailed 8-6. Eudy Pina delivered an RBI single to pull St. Lucie within a run. Molina then walked Jeff McNeil to load the bases. Ryan Garton was summoned to face Maikis De La Cruz with no outs and the bases loaded. He induced a 4-6-3 double play as Gomez scored the tying run. Garton got the Crabs out of further trouble when Mazzilli flied out to leave Pina on third base. Colton Reavis shut down the Mets in order in the ninth. Angel Cuan, who was demoted to St. Lucie from Binghamton, started for the Mets. He allowed three runs in four innings. Mazzilli and Pina had two-hit games.

Herrera
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

Ryan Robowski. Kai Gronauer homered and Dustin Lawley produced an RBI single later in the inning. An inning later, Boyd's solo homer -- his first long ball since June 7 -- upped Binghamton’s lead to 3-0. After retiring 11 of the first 12 batters he faced, B-Mets starter Cory Mazzoni opened the door for a SeaWolves comeback with back-to-back two-out walks in the fourth. Corey Jones made him pay with a two-run double, slicing Binghamton’s lead to one. The lead disappeared in the fifth. Francisco Martinez singled off Mazzoni’s mitt and stole second. Marcus Lemon brought him home by lining a two-out single. Binghamton responded with a string of hits against reliever Slade Smith in the sixth. Travis Taijeron ultimately singled to plate Darrell Ceciliani with the go-ahead run. Binghamton turned a one-run game into a blowout by hanging five runs on reliever Jose Valdez in the ninth, highlighted by Boyd's two-run single. Mazzoni (2-0) struck out nine while allowing three runs and five hits over seven innings. Jack Leathersich and Cody Satterwhite each tossed a scoreless relief inning. Box

Mazzilli
recovered to snap their four-game losing streak. L.J. Mazzilli doubled to lead off the bottom of the 10th against Nate Fury and moved to third on Cam Maron’s single. Jared King struck out for the first out of the inning. Fury’s first pitch to Phillip Evans then bounced away from Green, the catcher, and Mazzilli slid safely into home to give the Mets a walk-off victory. Paul Sewald pitched a perfect top of the 10th to earn the win. Maikis De La Cruz had put the Mets ahead, 1-0, in the third with a single. Maron followed later that inning with a two-out, two-run single to make it 3-0. Evans belted his third homer of the season in the sixth to put the Mets up by four runs. Mets starter Luis Cessa cruised for most of the night. After Andy Dirks led off the game with a single, Cessa only allowed one more baserunner until the top of the seventh. In the seventh, Chad Wright led off with a single. Cessa rebounded to get a pop out and a strikeout, but Green extended the inning with a single. That brought up James Robbins, who launched a three-run homer to cut the Mets’ lead to 4-3. Cessa escaped further damage when Maron threw out Jared Reaves trying to steal second. Cessa struck out eight in seven innings. He allowed five hits and one walk. Beck Wheeler struck out three in 1 1/3 relief innings. Mazzilli’s leadoff double in the 10th extended his hitting streak to nine games. Box

CHARLESTON 4, SAVANNAH 1: The Dogs scored a pair of first-inning runs against Savannah starter Robert Gsellman and never looked back. Mike Ford drove in the opening run with a double and eventually scored on second baseman Jorge Rivero's error. Charleston produced its third run, and the second unearned run against Gsellman, in the third on a fielding error by shortstop Yeixon Ruiz. The Gnats committed four errors in the game. Charleston completed its scoring with a bases-loaded walk in the fourth -- one of the four walks issued by Gsellman in four innings. The Gnats scored their lone run in the third as Champ Stuart plated Ruiz with a hard-hit single to third base. Matt Oberste extended his hitting streak to 14 games with a second-inning double. Box

BRISTOL 9, KINGSPORT 8: Bristol scored five first-inning runs and chased Andrew Church before he recorded an out in the second inning. Eudor Garcia went 2-for-3 with four RBIs in the loss. The K-Mets pulled within 9-8 with a two-run eighth, but they stranded the tying run in scoring position when pinch hitter Jean Rodriguez struck out. Box

CONNECTICUT 4, BROOKLYN 3: Josh Prevost issued a bases-loaded walk to Garrett Mattlage with two outs in the bottom of the ninth for the walk-off loss. Michael Bernal's RBI single had given Brooklyn a 1-0 lead in the first. An inning later, Jeff Diehl doubled, advanced on a wild pitch and scored ahead of a throw to the plate on Joe Tuschak's groundball for a 2-0 lead. Cyclones starter Octavio Acosta retired the first 10 batters. He eventually surrendered a sacrifice fly to Joey Pankake in the fourth. The Tigers tied the score at 2 against Acosta in the seventh on consecutive doubles from Ross Kivett and Pankake. Brooklyn regained the lead in the eighth. Jhoan Urena singled and advanced to second when left fielder Rashad Brown bobbled the ball. With one out, Bernal hit a soft groundball through the right side that seemed like it would be enough to score Urena, but right fielder Ben Verlander showed that his brother isn’t the only one in the family with a strong arm. He uncorked a laser throw to the plate to retire Urena and keep the score tied. Bernal did advance to second on the throw, though. After an intentional walk to Tyler Moore, Diehl produced a go-ahead RBI single.

The 3-2 lead would be short-lived. Cyclones reliever Brad Wieck struck out the first two batters he faced, but then walked two batters and uncorked a wild pitch that placed runners on the corners. Wieck then coaxed Pankake to hit a routine grounder to third. However, Urena bounced a throw to first base, allowing the tying run to score. The Cyclones seemed prime to take the lead back in the top of the ninth, placing runners on first and third with one out. But Urena and Michael Katz struck out. Prevost retired the first batter he faced in the bottom half, but then walked two and surrendered a single to load the bases with two outs for Mattlage, who leads the New York-Penn League in walks.

GCL NATIONALS 4, GCL METS 3: Jeremy Hefner tossed a perfect inning in the regularly scheduled game in his first game action since Tommy John surgery. The Nats then overcame a 3-0 deficit with a four-run eighth against Alex Durham and Dan Hermann. Taylor Teagarden went 0-for-1 with a walk as a DH and was replaced by a pinch runner. Meanwhile, in the resumption of Friday's game, which had been suspended with the score tied at 3, Brent McMinn's balk plated the tiebreaking run in the bottom of the sixth. Box 1, Box 2

The Intimidators tied the score at 3 in the third on an RBI single by Ruben Sierra Jr. Bowman found his groove late, retiring 15 of the final 16 batters he faced after a leadoff single in the fourth. He struck out eight and did not walk a batter while becoming the first Gnats pitcher to complete eight innings this season. Box

four runs (one earned) on eights hits and three walks in an 92-pitch effort over 5 1/3 innings. Wheeler struck out six against the Giants' top farm club. Errors by third baseman Brian Bixler as well as Wheeler resulted in three unearned runs. Wheeler's error came on an misfire to second base after fielding a bunt. Josh Satin had staked Wheeler to an early lead with a second-inning solo homer against former Mets farmhand Yusmeiro Petit. Wheeler also faced his former organization last year in Double-A. He limited Richmond to one run in 7 1/3 innings last July 5. Petit, who was traded by the Mets to the Marlins in the Nov. 24, 2005 Carlos Delgado trade, limited the 51s to one run on eight hits in six innings. Box

ERIE 2, BINGHAMTON 1: Binghamton grabbed the early lead with a two-out rally in the first against Erie starter Kyle Lobstein. Richard Lucas singled and scored when Rhyne Hughes bounced a double off the top of the right-field wall. In his second start with the

B-Mets, Rafael Montero cruised through five innings. Montero’s smooth stretch came to an abrupt end in the sixth when the SeaWolves plated their first run. Tyler Collins started the rally with a double and Ramon Cabrera tied the score by doubling as well. Montero settled for the no-decision. He allowed one run on six hits in six innings. He struck out seven and did not issue any walks. Lobstein settled in and finished his night with four scoreless innings, exiting in the top of the sixth for reliever Michael Morrison. Erie grabbed the lead against reliever John Church (0-1) in the seventh. James Robbins greeted the righty with a double, moved to third on a groundout and scored the decisive run on Marcus Lemon’s sac fly. Binghamton's Wilfredo Tovar led off the eighth with a single, but was picked off first by catcher James McCann. Alonzo Harris followed with a hit and stole second base, but was doubled off to end the inning. Box

ST. LUCIE 4, PALM BEACH 0: St. Lucie improved to 5-0 as Luis Mateo, Randy Fontanez and T.J. Chism combined on the nine-hit shutout. Mateo (1-0), who made 12 starts for the Brooklyn Cyclones in 2012, was making his Florida State League debut. He allowed four hits and two walks while striking out nine in 6 2/3 innings. St. Lucie opened the scoring in the fourth as Dustin Lawley doubled and later came home on a fielding error. A three-run sixth included a two-run single by Charley Thurber. Box
