and scored on Matt Reynolds' single two batters later as Binghamton took the lead in the top of the 14th. Johnson had advanced to third base on Brian Burgamy's single. John Church tossed a perfect bottom half with two strikeouts for his first save of the season. The Mets had squandered a 7-0 lead. Starter Tyler Pill allowed two runs on six hits and a walk in 5 2/3 innings. He also tossed two wild pitches. Reliever T.J. Chism was charged with five runs while recording only one out.

Darrell Ceciliani contributed a two-run homer in the third inning. Box

LAKELAND 3, ST. LUCIE 2: Lance Durham drove in the go-ahead run with an eighth-inning double against St. Lucie reliever Paul Sewald. With Chad Wright at second base and two outs, Durhman lined Sewald's offering into to left field. Maikis De La Cruz initially broke in, but the ball was hit deep. By the time De La Cruz recovered, it went just beyond his glove and to the wall to score the tiebreaking run. Lakeland reliever Jade Todd had inherited runners on the corners with one out in the seventh in a 2-all game. He struck out Brandon Nimmo and got T.J. Rivera to ground out to preserve the tie. Gabriel Ynoa made his best start of the season for the Mets. He pitched a season-high seven innings and struck out five. Ynoa allowed seven hits and two runs in a no-decision. The Flying Tigers opened the scoring in the third. Wright, Curt Powell and Jeff McVaney all singled against Ynoa with two outs. McVaney’s hit scored Wright to make it 1-0. Dilson Herrera tied the score at 1 in the fourth with a leadoff homer, his second long ball of the year. Eudy Pina gave the Mets a brief 2-1 lead with a two-out RBI single later in the frame. The Flying Tigers tied the score at 2 in the fifth. McVaney lined a full-count pitch from Ynoa off the left-field wall to plate Tyler Hanover. Drew Longley tried to score from first on the play, but the throws from De La Cruz to Phillip Evans and on to catcher Albert Cordero beat him to end the inning. Herrera and Nimmo finished with two hits apiece. Box

CHARLESTON 10, SAVANNAH 3: Charleston third baseman Miguel Andujar homered twice to hand the Gnats a three-game losing streak for the first time this season. The RiverDogs scored the game’s opening run in the third on Mike Ford's double against Savannah starter Chris Flexen. Andujar’s three-run homer against Flexen in the fifth staked Charleston to a 4-0 lead. Trailing 5-0, the Gnats (28-14) scored their lone runs in the sixth. Two walks and a single loaded the bases for Dominic Smith, who produced a two-run single through the hole on the right side. The hit snapped the Gnats’ 0-for-20 streak with runners in scoring position in the two games against Charleston. Victor Cruzado followed with an RBI single as the Gnats pulled within 5-3. Andujar hooked a two-run homer down the left-field line against reliever Dawrin Frias in the seventh for a 7-3 lead. The Dogs added three runs against Savannah closer Robert Coles in the ninth, snapping Coles’ scoreless streak at 18 2/3 innings to begin the season.

pitch that moved Tovar into scoring position, Brian Burgamy produced an RBI single for a 2-0 lead. Plawecki capped the inning's scoring by singling to right. Burgamy raced home from second, and needed an acrobatic headfirst dive to avoid a tag. B-Mets starter Rainy Lara's scoreless effort ended in the fourth on Ryan Schimpf's solo homer. Lara then retired seven of the next eight batters. Taijeron struck again for the B-Mets in the sixth. With two outs and Jayce Boyd at first, Taijeron smoked a 1-2 pitch from reliever John Anderson off the top of the left-field fence for his second double of the game. Boyd scored from first to give the B-Mets a 4-1 advantage. Schimpf's second solo homer of the game pulled New Hampshire within 4-2 in the sixth. A half-inning later, Binghamton opened a four-run lead. Anderson bounced a pickoff throw to first, prompting Darrell Ceciliani to scamper to second. With the ball still loose, Ceciliani tried for third. Right fielder Matt Newman’s throw hit Ceciliani, enabling him to race home. Cory Vaughn and Plawecki followed by posting back-to-back two-out doubles. Lara was chased from the game in the seventh. With runners at the corners, Peter Mooney stroked an RBI double. Reliever John Church entered and surrendered a run-producing infield single to Jon Berti. Kenny Wilson followed with an RBI groundout, cutting Binghamton’s lead to 6-5. Church intentionally walked Schimpf, then retired A.J. Jimenez. Church added a perfect eighth. Cody Satterwhite struck out two in a 1-2-3 ninth to earn his first save in affiliated baseball since July 23, 2011, when he was a Gulf Coast League Tiger. Lara (4-1) matched a season high with seven strikeouts over 6 1/3 innings. Box

runs to break a 2-all tie. Flying Tigers second baseman Curt Powell booted a ball with one out in the eighth that allowed Maikis De La Cruz to reach safely. Dilson Herrera followed with a double to place two in scoring position. Lakeland intentionally walked Brandon Nimmo to load the bases, but the plan backfired when Florida State League RBI leader T.J. Rivera singled to plate De La Cruz and put the Mets up 3-2. Jairo Perez then drew a bases-loaded walk and Cam Maron lined his third single of the game to plate another run and make it 5-2. Gilbert Gomez capped the frame's scoring on a sac fly. Koch got one out in the bottom of the eighth before surrendering a single and departing. Randy Fontanez recorded the final five outs. The Mets had taken a 1-0 lead in the third when Herrera got caught in a rundown but kept himself alive long enough to allow De La Cruz to score from third. Lakeland made it 1-1 in the fourth when Chad Wright tripled and scored on a wild pitch. James Robbins gave the Flying Tigers a brief lead when he opened the fifth with a homer. The Mets tied the score in the sixth when Herrera doubled and reached home on Perez's two-out single. Herrera went 3-for-5. Maron went 3-for-4. Box

CHARLESTON 3, SAVANNAH 1: The Gnats (28-13) had runners on base in each inning, but finished 0-for-15 with runners in scoring position and left 13 men on base.

Charleston added a run in the fifth against reliever John Mincone, on Michael O’Neill's RBI single. The Gnats scored their lone run in the ninth.
