BUFFALO 13, SYRACUSE 7: Jeurys Familia was roughed up, Kirk Nieuwenhuis suffered a right foot injury and Wally Backman was ejected, but Pedro Beato retired all eight batters he faced in relief and the Bisons had a season-high 19 hits in a win against their Thruway Series rival. Josh Satin had four hits, including his 12th homer. Lucas Duda added a two-run blast and Zach Lutz had three hits and three RBIs. Satin erased a 5-3 deficit in the third with a three-run shot. Mike Nickeas launched a two-run homer in the eighth. Satin also had two doubles to push his team-leading total to 20. Four Buffalo relievers combined to toss 6 1/3 innings. Jeff Stevens was credited with the win after contributing 1 1/3 scoreless innings. Nieuwenhuis left the game with a torn plantar fascia in his foot after grounding out in the first inning. Familia allowed five runs, including a pair of homers, in 2 2/3 innings. He walked three. The Bisons officially added Zack Wheeler to their roster. Dylan Owen was placed on the disabled list with a left ankle sprain. Backman and Chiefs manager Tony Beasley were ejected in the fourth inning for an argument that took place just outside the third-base coach's box. Box

READING 4, BINGHAMTON 1: Reading tagged B-Mets starter Darin Gorski for three homers. Binghamton used the longball to grab the lead in the first against Ethan Martin, who had been acquired four days earlier in a trade with the Dodgers. Wilmer Flores welcomed Martin to the Eastern League with a solo homer. It was Flores’ fourth homer as a B-Met and 14th overall this season. But it was the only damage Binghamton produced against Martin (1-0), who tossed six innings. Martin allowed four hits, struck out six and issued one walk. Reading answered a half-inning after Flores' homer. Darin Ruf homered to even the score. In the fourth, Leandro Castro doubled and scored when D’Arby Myers homered. Reading extended its lead in the sixth, in Gorski’s final inning. Ruf opened the frame by crushing a 1-1 pitch for his 20th homer of the season. Gorski was charged with four runs on five hits in six innings. He walked one and struck out a season-high eight. Gorski (6-6) allowed multiple homers for the sixth time this season. The southpaw has surrendered 10 in his past four games. Box

ST. LUCIE 6, FORT MYERS 0: Tyler Pill and Hamilton Bennett combined on the three-hit shutout. Pill (6-1) struck out 10, walked one and hit two batters while allowing three hits in 7 2/3 innings. Aderlin Rodriguez homered twice and Cory Vaughn and Rafael Fernandez also went deep. Box

ASHEVILLE 3, SAVANNAH 2: Chasen Bradford allowed a runner inherited from starter Domingo Tapia to score as the Tourists posted two runs in the eighth inning in a come-from-behind win. Tapia was charged with three runs (two earned) on three hits while striking out five in 7 1/3 innings. Box

GREENEVILLE 18, KINGSPORT 2: Corey Oswalt was charged with six runs, while Luis Rengel was charged with nine runs in relief. Box

BROOKLYN 3, CONNECTICUT 0: Stefan Sabol drove in two of Brooklyn’s three runs. Brandon Nimmo doubled to open the first. He was plated on a double by Phillip Evans that cleared left fielder Danry Vasquez. Sabol ultimately hit a two-out, two-run homer to give the Cyclones a 3-0 lead. Brooklyn starter Luis Cessa earned the win, holding the Tigers to two hits in five innings. Cessa retired the first five batters before allowing a single to Tyler Hanover. The Tigers managed their second hit in the following frame -- another single, this time from Bennett Pickar. Connecticut starter Tim Kelley allowed three earned runs on seven hits in four innings. The Cyclones loaded the bases in the fifth and seventh innings, but failed to capitalize on either chance while going 2-for-14 with runners in scoring position. After Matt Bowman threw three no-hit relief innings, John Mincone pitched a perfect ninth to pick up his fourth save. Box

HARRISBURG 3, BINGHAMTON 2: Harrisburg took the lead in the second inning with a two-out rally against B-Mets starter Gonzalez Germen and never trailed. Justin Bloxom doubled and scored on Devin Ivany's single. Dustin Martin’s bobble in left allowed Ivany to take second, setting the stage for Jonathan Tucker's RBI single. The B-Mets were kept in check through the first four innings by starter Kevin Pucetas, who allowed only two baserunners. Binghamton broke through in the fifth. Wilfredo Tovar doubled, took third on a groundout and scored when Germen singled. Against Germen in the sixth, James Skelton singled and scored on Zach Walters’ two-out triple. Pucetas’ night ended after five innings. Paul Demny posted a scoreless sixth and handed off to Marcos Frias in the seventh. Martin helped the B-Mets scratch within a run after a leadoff single. He took second on a sac bunt and, with two outs and pinch-hitter Wilmer Flores at the plate, scampered to third on a wild pitch. Martin scored when the throw from Ivany, the catcher, sailed past Tim Pahuta. The B-Mets failed to get another runner into scoring position. Juan Lagares reached on a bunt single in the eighth against Hector Nelo, but was thrown out attempting to steal. Reese Havens followed with a walk, but was erased on a double play. Germen (6-8) surrendered three runs (two earned) on six hits in seven innings. Frank Francisco threw a scoreless eighth in his fifth and likely final rehab game with Binghamton.

He tossed six scoreless innings with seven strikeouts and one walk to lower his ERA to 3.20. Panteliodis has struck out 26 batters in his last 19 innings. The Hoppers scored first in Game 1, tallying two runs in the fourth against Savannah starter Michael Fulmer. Wilfredo Gimenez drove in the second run with a double. The Gnats answered in the bottom half with four singles, which led to a three-run frame and 3-2 lead. Brian Harrison and Dustin Lawley each picked up RBI singles before Gregory Pron lifted a sacrifice fly to put the Gnats in front. Fulmer, in his shortest start since May 25, lasted 4 2/3 innings. He allowed two earned runs on seven hits, walked two and struck out two. Box 1, Box 2

GREENEVILLE 7, KINGSPORT 4: 2012 first-round pick Gavin Cecchini was pulled from the game in the sixth inning for a pinch runner.

BUFFALO 8, PAWTUCKET 2: Jeurys Familia tossed 6 1/3 scoreless innings as Buffalo won its sixth straight. Familia (7-5) allowed five hits, struck out six and walked one. He allowed one extra-base hit, a leadoff double to Lars Anderson in the fourth, and didn't give up multiple hits in any inning. After being blanked by PawSox starter Billy Buckner for four innings, Rob Johnson drew a two-out walk in the fifth. Fred Lewis followed with a two-run homer. In the sixth, again after Buckner retired the first two batters, Matt den Dekker walked. Josh Satin then homered to make the score 4-0. The pattern repeated as Valentino Pascucci walked and Matt Tuiasosopo homered for a 6-0 lead. Lewis finished with two homers. Box

BINGHAMTON 2, ERIE 0
BINGHAMTON 5, ERIE 4 (8 innings):
The B-Mets completed a pair of wins with Jefry Marte’s walk-off single in the nightcap. It marked Binghamton's first doubleheader sweep since July 9, 2011. In Game 1, Juan Lagares led off the first with a single against Patrick Cooper. A walk to Reese Havens set the table for Wilmer Flores, who delivered a two-run triple. Cooper bounced back to retire the final 18 B-Mets he faced. Aided by terrific fielding behind him, Cory Mazzoni fired seven shutout innings. He did not issue a walk. Mazzoni (3-2) extended his scoreless streak to 14 innings. Binghamton snapped out of its mini-hitting funk to open the nightcap. Lagares singled against spot starter David Kopp to open the first inning, stole second and scored on Allan Dykstra's single. The B-Mets added to their lead in the third. After a bunt single by Lagares, Mike Fisher -- in his first game this season with the B-Mets -- blasted a two-run homer. It was his first long ball since he went deep for Buffalo in June 2011. Marte capped the scoring for Binghamton with a solo homer in the fourth. Mark Cohoon allowed one unearned run over six innings, struck out a season-high six and left with a chance to earn the win. The B-Mets took a 4-1 lead into the seventh and looked to Robert Carson for the save. However, Erie scored three runs on four hits, capped by Niuman Romero's game-tying two-run double. After the B-Mets failed to score against Robbie Weinhardt and Michael Morrison in the seventh, Ryan Fraser took over in the eighth and tossed a perfect frame. Flores started the bottom of the eighth with a walk against Morrison. Following a sac bunt by Eric Campbell, Dykstra was intentionally walked. After working the count full, Marte then lined a single to right-center, plating Flores with the game-winning run. It was Marte’s second walk-off hit this season. Fraser (2-1) earned the win. Carson suffered his third blown save. Box 1, Box 2

TAMPA 8, ST. LUCIE 2: Starter Erik Goeddel allowed five runs in five innings. Box

SAVANNAH 10, DELMARVA 6: Brandon Brown had a two-run homer in the eighth to break a 6-all tie. Box

BURLINGTON at KINGSPORT (ppd.)

CONNECTICUT 5, BROOKLYN 2: Gabriel Ynoa limited Connecticut to one earned run in six innings, but four unearned runs also crossed the plate thanks to a pair of defensive miscues. After Ynoa retired the first six batters he faced, the third inning started poorly. Patrick Smith doubled. A dropped foul popup by Alex Sanchez off the bat of Bennett Pickar followed. Ynoa then walked Pickar. Luis Cortez advanced both runners with a sacrifice bunt. Jake Stewart hit a two-run double. After a groundout by Tyler Hanover, Danny Vasquez singled to right fielder Jonathan Clark, scoring Stewart. Another single would put runners on the corners with one out, bringing up Devon Travis. He singled, scoring Vasquez. On a throwing error by Clark, Juaner Aguasvivas scored. With the help of two errors the Tigers grabbed a 5-0 lead. The Cyclones started a comeback bid in the fifth. Brandon Nimmo singled with one out. After Nelfi Zapata popped out and Clark walked. Juan Gamboa then singled to score Nimmo and Clark as center fielder Jake Stewart misplayed the ball. Box
