on Cory Mazzoni's errant pickoff attempt, moved to third on a bunt and scored on Tyson Blaser's single. With two outs in the second, Ali Castillo and Flores had RBI doubles. In the bottom half, Matt Tracy walked the first four batters and had a stretch of 13 consecutive balls. The B-Mets scored their first run when Alonzo Harris walked to force in a run. They plated another on Xorge Carillo's double-play groundout to pull within 3-2 without a hit in the inning. Mazzoni and Tracy then found their grooves and tossed three scoreless innings apiece. In the sixth, Puello homered to tie the score at 3. Joe Bonfe later reached on a two-out infield single, stole second and scored on Harris' double for a 4-3 lead. Mazzoni departed in the seventh after allowing a single to Castillo. He was charged with three runs(two earned) on five hits in 6 2/3 innings. Jack Leathersich struck out Flores to end the inning, but labored in the eighth. Leathersich allowed two walks and a single to load the bases with none out. Neil Medchill struck out. Closer Jeff Walters then entered, and Jose Pirela hit a first-pitch fly ball. Bonfe made the catch, but it was deep enough for a game-tying sacrifice fly. Puello answered by blasting his second homer, this time against Fred Lewis in the bottom of the eighth, to give Binghamton a 5-4 lead. Walters pitched a perfect ninth. Darrell Ceciliani extended his hitting streak to 13 games. Box

Rodriguez
the longest by a B-Met since Matt den Dekker had a 17-game streak last season. Jarek Cunningham's solo homer opened a three-run second inning against B-Mets starter Cory Mazzoni. Fielding letdowns contributed. Gift Ngoepe's grounder went through third baseman Richard Lucas' legs for the game's first error. After moving to third base on a groundout, Ngoepe scored on shortstop Danny Muno's fielding error. Binghamton cracked the scoreboard in the fifth. Mazzoni led off with a single. Two batters later, Rodriguez tripled. Puello followed with a sharp single to make it 3-2. Andrew Lambo answered in the top of the sixth with a towering solo homer. Darrell Ceciliani opened the next half-inning with a bloop single. On the next pitch, Lucas delivered a run-scoring double. After Xorge Carillo singled to put runners on the corners, Joe Bonfe hit a pinch-hit sacrifice fly to tie the score at 4. Mazzoni received a no-decision. He struck out a season-high nine over six innings. Adam Kolarek (2-1) pitched two perfect relief innings, striking out four. In the eighth, Quinton Miller plunked Carillo. Alonzo Harris pinch-ran and moved to second on a sac bunt. After Muno also was hit by a pitch, Rodriguez singled to plate Harris. Puello's RBI single capped the scoring. Jeff Walters tossed a scoreless ninth for his league-leading 13th save. Dylan Owen (right knee strain) was placed on the DL. Ryan Fraser was promoted from St. Lucie. Box

JUPITER 4. ST. LUCIE 3: Rehabbing Casey Kotchman delivered a bases-loaded single in the 10th against Randy Fontanez to sink St. Lucie (29-22). Right-hander Luis Mateo, activated from the Binghamton DL and transferred to St. Lucie, pitched a scoreless ninth. Starter Rainy Lara has limited Jupiter to three runs (one earned) in eight innings. Travis Taijeron's two-run homer in the second inning against rehabbing Marlins starter Nathan Eovaldi had given the Mets an early 2-0 lead. A fielding error by shortstop Matt Reynolds contributed to a three-run fifth against Lara. Box
