He batted.375 in June. On the mound, Kevin McGowan took over for John Lannan with two outs in the fourth. McGowan did not allow a run and finished out the last 5 2/3 innings of the game.

Shannon Wilkerson doubled and moved to Mookie Betts' single. After Betts stole second, Travis Shaw delivered a two-run single. B-Mets reliever Chasen Bradford loaded the bases in the seventh, but escaped unharmed and earned his fifth save by inducing Betts to fly out and Deven Marrero to line out.

Aderlin Rodriguez plated Brandon Nimmo and T.J. Rivera with a first-inning double.

Rivera delivered a two-run single in the seventh. Randy Fontanez pitched two scoreless innings to earn his fourth save. After driving in three runs, Rodriguez now leads the Florida State League with 31 RBIs. Rivera went 3-for-4 with a double and two RBIs.

Then, with a two-strike count on Josh Bell, Fraser threw a wild pitch and Raul Fortunato easily scored for the walk-off win. The Mets had a chance to break the game open against John Kuchno in the first. Dilson Herrera, Nimmo and Jairo Perez all reached to start the game. With the bases loaded, Rodriguez grounded out to plate a run. Cam Maron followed with another run-scoring groundout to make it 2-0. Kuchno hit a batter and walked another to reload the bases, but he got Phillip Evans to strike out on three pitches to end the threat. The Mets would only place three more runners on base. Twice runners were erased on double-play balls. The Marauders were able to manufacture two runs against Domingo Tapia. In the third, Tapia got what looked like the third out on a routine grounder to Perez at first. Perez stumbled and had to flip to Tapia covering first base. Tapia was late getting to the bag and Taylor Lewis was safe. Meanwhile, Jonathan Schwind, who started the play at second base, never broke stride and scored to make it 2-1. In the fifth, Tapia gave up a single and a walk to put the tying run at second. After a sac bunt, Lewis grounded out to bring home the tying run from third. Tapia pitched five innings in a no-decision. He allowed five hits and two runs while walking one and striking out two. Box 1, Box 2
