Reliever Thomas Lee was credited with the win after pitching 2 1/3 innings. The Cardinals never trailed in the game. They got on the board in the fourth on a triple from Starlin Rodriguez that plated Anthony Garcia. Two batters later, Steven Ramos singled home Rodriguez to make it 2-0. The Mets cut the lead in half in their half of the fourth when Dilson Herrera singled to plate Brandon Nimmo. But the Mets wouldn’t get any closer. The Cardinals scored four unanswered runs. Garcia doubled in the sixth and scored on a wild pitch by Julian Hilario. The Cardinals broke it open with three runs in the seventh. The big hit came on a two-run single by Jacob Wilson. The Mets were led offensively by T.J. Rivera. He followed Thursday’s five-RBI game with two more hits. Herrera also had a multi-hit game. Nimmo added a double. Box

SAVANNAH 10, LAKEWOOD 1: Savannah native John Gant earned the win in his first home start as a Gnat after limiting the BlueClaws to one run in six innings. Jared King ripped a pair of two-run triples and shortstop Gavin Cecchini blasted a three-run homer in the Gnats' five-run seventh to turn the game into a rout. Dominic Smith began that big frame with a single. Patrick Biondi also singled. Cecchini brought both runners home with a three-run shot. It was the 2012 first-round pick's second professional homer. The first long ball came on July 28, 2012 with Kingsport. The Gnats were not done. Jeff McNeil doubled for the second time in the game. Victor Cruzado walked and King tripled. King's first triple of the game had given the Gnats a 2-1 lead in what became a three-run fourth. That time, McNeil had doubled and Cruzado singled. King then launched a shot to right-center that Lakewood center fielder Carlos Tocci could not reel in after a long run. King scored on a sacrifice fly by L.J. Mazzilli. The BlueClaws' lone run came in the third inning, when Tocci scored on a wild pitch. Gant got stronger as the game went on. He allowed the leadoff man to reach base in each of the first three innings, but in none of his final three frames. He completed six innings, allowing one run on five hits and a walk while striking out seven. Box

Cohoon sailed through four scoreless innings before facing his biggest challenge in the sixth. Cabrera reached with two outs on an infield single, and Cohoon hit Tyler Collins and walked James McCann to load the bases. The southpaw pitched himself out of trouble, inducing Wade Gaynor to bounce back to the mound. The B-Mets then enjoyed a three-run seventh. Wilfredo Tovar scampered to second when Daniel Fields dropped his fly ball in shallow center. Reliever Justin Souza entered and walked Muno before surrendering an RBI double to Josh Rodriguez.

Left fielder Jonathan Clark retrieved the ball but overthrew Mazzilli covering second. As the ball headed toward the Cyclones dugout, Ramos started toward third. He then noticed nobody was covering home and headed for the plate. Eddie Rohan came up with the ball after it caromed off the front of the dugout and raced home, but Ramos narrowly beat him, giving the Spikes a 1-0 lead. The official scoring: a bunt single and two Cyclones errors. Brooklyn answered in a four-run second, thanks to three hits and two errors. Rohan and Anthony Chavez doubled. Patrick Biondi walked and Gavin Cecchini grounded into a run-scoring fielder's choice. Mazzilli then singled and right fielder Luis Perez allowed the ball to get behind him as Biondi scored. Shortstop Cesar Valera's error on James Roche's grounder extended Brooklyn’s lead to 4-1. In the fourth, Rohan again doubled, and moved to third on a groundout. Biondi then reached on a bunt, scoring Rohan and giving the Cyclones a four-run cushion. State College scored a run in the seventh against David Wynn to pull within 6-2. In a three-run eighth, Cecchini doubled and scored on Mazzilli's single. Sanchez then belted a two-run homer. Box
