to clinch a playoff spot to three. Facing Jeff Ferrell for the sixth time this season, the B-Mets jumped on the SeaWolves starter in the second as Jayce Boyd hammered his seventh homer this season. Binghamton stretched its advantage with a five-run third. Brandon Nimmo and Dilson Herrera had back-to-back one-out singles. Brian Burgamy followed with a two-run double. After a strikeout, T.J. Rivera, Taijeron and Xorge Carrillo produced consecutive RBI singles, chasing Ferrell. Erie cut its deficit to 6-2 in the fourth against B-Mets starter Greg Peavey as Steven Moya produced a two-run homer -- his league-leading 31st long ball. A half-inning later, though, Taijeron ripped an RBI double against reliever Joe Mantiply. Two batters later, third baseman Corey Jones fired an errant throw to second on a potential inning-ending force out, allowing another run to score. Peavey’s night ended after 5 1/3 innings. Peavey (10-3) allowed three runs on eight hits. Chase Huchingson took over and stranded a pair of inherited runners. Taijeron capped his monster night with a three-run homer in the ninth. Huchingson ultimately tossed 2 2/3 innings, allowing one run on two hits. Dario Alvarez tossed a scoreless ninth. Box

CHARLOTTE 6, ST. LUCIE 3: Maikis De La Cruz hit a solo homer in the top of the first, but the Stone Crabs tagged St. Lucie starter Kevin McGowan for six runs in the bottom half. The first five Charlotte batters reached. Tommy Coyle doubled and Johnny Field singled. Maxx Tissenbaum followed with a two-run homer to put the Crabs up 3-1. Patrick Leonard then singled and scored on Marty Gantt’s triple. A groundout scored Gantt to make it 5-1. After Jake DePew struck out, Jonathan Quinonez walked. He scored on Juniel Querecuto’s triple. McGowan settled down to keep the Crabs off the scoreboard over the next four innings. Meanwhile, Jared Mortensen retired 10 Mets in a row after serving up the homer to De La Cruz. The Mets finally got to him in the sixth when De La Cruz and L.J. Mazzilli hit back-to-back one-out doubles. Mazzilli scored later in the inning when reliever Marcus Jensen threw a wild pitch. De La Cruz went 3-for-4 and was a triple shy of the cycle. Tim Peterson contributed three scoreless, no-hit relief innings. Box

GREENEVILLE 12, KINGSPORT 3: Greeneville scored a combined 11 runs (seven earned) against Yoryi Nuez and Nicco Blank over the second and third innings. Box

GCL METS 4, GCL CARDINALS 3: Starter Kevin Canelon (1-2) allowed two runs (one earned) in 6 2/3 innings. Dash Winningham and Hengelbert Rojas each went 3-for-5. Winningham drove in two runs. Leading 4-2 in the eighth, Alex Palsha ultimately allowed an inherited runner to score on a pair of wild pitches. However, Edmundo Sosa was caught stealing home to end that inning and Palsha ultimately notched his 10th save. Box

Weathers. Gilbert Gomez followed with a double to place two in scoring position. With L.J. Mazzilli at the plate, Weathers threw a wild pitch that evened the score. After Mazzilli grounded out, catcher Maxx Tissenbaum failed to reel in a high fastball. It went off his glove and to the backstop. Gomez, who had advanced to third on the original wild pitch, slid safely into the plate on the passed ball for a 7-6 lead. T.J. Chism tossed a perfect bottom half with two strikeouts to notch the save. Robert Coles worked a scoreless seventh and eighth and earned the win.

Gnats starter John Gant fought his way through seven innings, tying a career-high with 10 strikeouts to earn his eighth win. After allowing four runs, Gant now has a 2.79 ERA. Box
