BUFFALO 17, TOLEDO 1: Four Bisons homers in the eighth made it a laugher as Jeremy Hefner pitched solidly. The scoring output fell one shy of the team record at home, which came in an 18-3 win against Toledo on June 2, 2000. Leading off the eighth, Oswaldo Navarro sent a fly ball to deep left field that cleared the fences for a home run. It was the first pinch-hit homer for the Herd since Jordany Valdespin's long ball on May 19. Following Navarro in the eighth, Adam Loewen had a solo shot for the first back-to-back Bisons homers since June 29. Matt den Dekker contributed a three-run homer and Fred Lewis also went deep in the frame. Matt Tuiasosopo went 4-for-4 with three RBIs. Hefner (5-2) allowed the minimum number of batters through four innings, benefiting from three inning-ending double plays. Hefner limited the Mud Hens to one run on six hits and a walk while striking out four in seven innings. Box

TRENTON 5, BINGHAMTON 4: Reliever Robert Carson balked in the deciding run in the top of the ninth as the B-Mets failed to hold two late-game leads. With the score tied at 4, Rob Segedin greeted Carson in the ninth with a double, but was nabbed attempting to advance to third on Yadil Mujica’s groundball to short. Jose Pirela made up for the gaffe and put runners on the corners with a single. With a 1-0 count against Addison Maruszak, Carson never came to the set position on his second pitch and was called for a balk. The misstep forced in Mujica with the tiebreaking run. Binghamton had opened the scoring in the third against Trenton starter Dellin Betances. Juan Centeno doubled with one out and came home when Reese Havens doubled. B-Mets starter Greg Peavey kept the Thunder in check for five scoreless frames. Trenton broke through in the sixth, plating a run on three consecutive singles. In seventh, J.R. Murphy gave Trenton the lead with a solo homer against Peavey to start the inning. Mujica doubled with one out and Pirela doubled him home, ending Peavey’s night. He allowed three runs on eight hits over 6 1/3 innings. Armando Rodriguez recorded two outs to keep the deficit at two runs. Binghamton struck back against Betances in the seventh. Allan Dykstra doubled and Michael Fisher chased Betances with a walk. Lee Hyde entered and bobbled a sac bunt by Dustin Martin, loading the bases. Wilfredo Tovar, hitting .474 with runners in scoring position entering the game, delivered a game-tying two-run double. Centeno gave Binghamton the lead with a sac fly. Rodriguez returned for the eighth and watched the lead disappear as Luke Murton crushed his league-leading 20th homer to knot the game at 4. Box

BREVARD COUNTY 6, ST. LUCIE 5
BREVARD COUNTY 1, ST. LUCIE 0:
Brevard County scored four runs in the ninth in Game 1 against Jack Leathersich and Jeffrey Walters to rally for the win. Rafael Montero was the hard-luck loser in Game 2. He allowed one run in six innings. Box 1, Box 2

SAVANNAH 10, LAKEWOOD 2: Cole Frenzel and Gilbert Gomez homered and Yucarybert De La Cruz went 3-for-5 with four RBIs. Starter Jacob deGrom limited the BlueClaws to two runs on four hits and a walk while striking out eight in 7 2/3 innings. Box

KINGSPORT 4, BRISTOL 3: Jeyckol De Leon's single in the eighth provided the tiebreaking run. Box

HUDSON VALLEY 4, BROOKLYN 1: The Renegades jumped to an early 1-0 lead as Luke Maile homered in the second inning -- the first long ball surrendered by Julian Hilario in his career. In the fourth, Hudson Valley rallied for another three runs against Hilario. Ryan Dunn singled and back-to-back walks by Hilario loaded the bases. Michael Williams followed with an RBI single. Leonardo Reginatto then doubled to score Joel Caminero and Marty Gantt. Ernesto Yanez replaced Hilario. In 3 1/3 innings, Hilario surrendered four earned runs on five hits with two walks and two strikeouts. With runners on second and third, Yanez retired Joey Rickard and fanned Justin O’Connor to escape the inning. Matt Koch and Logan Taylor combined for four scoreless relief innings for Brooklyn. Brandon Nimmo's RBI double in the sixth provided the Cyclones' lone run. Box

NORFOLK 5, BUFFALO 0: Forty-nine-year-old lefty Jamie Moyer surrendered one hit and struck out five in five scoreless innings in his debut with the Orioles organization. The last time Moyer pitched in the minors was in 1997 with Tacoma of the Pacific Coast League. His first-ever minor league stint was all the way back in 1984, when he pitched for the Geneva Cubs in the New York-Penn League. The Tides scored all of their runs in the fifth. With the score already 2-0, Bisons starter Jenrry Mejia surrendered the crushing blow. Lew Ford blasted a three-run homer to knock Mejia from the game. Mejia had bobbled a comebacker, allowing the first run to score. All of Norfolk's run were unearned. Mejia is the second straight Bisons starter to fail to finish five innings. Matt Harvey logged 4 2/3 innings Friday. Josh Satin and Pedro Beato returned to the Bisons on Saturday. Beato tossed two no-hit relief innings with three strikeouts. He has retired the last 17 batters he has faced in the International League. Beato has not allowed a run in his past 10 2/3 innings spanning six Triple-A relief appearances. Satin started at first base and went 0-for-2 with a walk. Box

BINGHAMTON 12, TRENTON 0: The B-Mets produced season high 18 hits and four homers and Darin Gorski tossed a career-high eight innings. Binghamton reached .500 for the first time since May 23 with its third straight win. Josh Rodriguez collected five hits, which matched Matt den Dekker's Friday output. The shorststop finished a homer shy of the cycle. Eric Campbell launched two homers and set a career high with five RBIs. For the fifth straight game, the B-Mets plated a run in the opening frame. Rodriguez tripled against starter Shaeffer Hall. Den Dekker plated him by singling. Rylan Sandoval doubled the B-Mets lead with a solo homer in the second. In the fourth, Kai Gronauer and Pedro Zapata started the inning with singles. They were driven home when Rodriguez doubled. Binghamton used the long ball to extend its lead against the Trenton bullpen. Ryan Pope took over for Hall in the sixth. Reese Havens greeted the righty by ripping a solo shot, his third homer this season. Campbell tagged Pope for a two-run homer in the seventh. Gorski faced no more than four hitters in each of his first seven innings. He scattered five hits through the first seven frames and never allowed any Thunder hitter to reach third. Binghamton put the game out of reach in the eighth. Havens reached on a fielding error by Luke Murton to start the inning and scored two batters later when Addison Maruszak booted a groundball. Joe Bonfe, a defensive replacement for Jefry Marte at third in the sixth, followed by ripping an RBI single. Campbell capped the frame by ripping a three-run homer. Gorski’s shutout stretch nearly came to an end in the eighth. After Yadil Mujica reached on an error by Havens at second, the lefty allowed a pair of singles to load the bases. The southpaw escaped unharmed by getting David Adams to line out to short and inducing Melky Mesa to bounce into an inning-ending double play. Gorski (4-3) spread out seven hits over eight innings and struck out three while walking none to earn his second straight win. Erik Turgeon posted a scoreless ninth. Box

CHARLOTTE 6, ST. LUCIE 4: Starter Cory Mazzoni allowed four runs (three earned) on seven hits and a walk in 5 1/3 innings. Alonzo Harris Jr. went 2-for-5 with two RBIs in the loss. Box

CHARLESTON 8, SAVANNAH 7: T.J. Chism allowed three ninth-inning runs to suffer the blown save. Starter Alex Panteliodis was charged with five runs on 10 hits and two walks in 5 1/3 innings, but Savannah took a 7-5 lead into the bottom of the ninth. Cam Maron and Gilbert Gomez had three hits and two RBIs apiece. Box
