His night ended at 113 pitches after eight innings. Krol threw a perfect ninth. Cesar Puello went 0-for-3, ending his 15-game hitting streak, which had been the longest active in Double-A. Binghamton scored its lone run in the seventh. After Dykstra led off with his third walk of the game, he moved to third base on a throwing error by Demny. With runners on the corners, Francisco Pena grounded into a run-scoring 3-6-1 double-play. Harrisburg got its offense going right away against B-Mets starter Jacob deGrom. After a throwing error by the catcher Pena on a bunt attempt in the first inning, Anthony Rendon doubled in a run. He came around to score when Jerad Head singled. Harrisburg scored another unearned run in the second, on Dykstra's throwing error. In the sixth, the Senators busted the game open. After Jimmy Van Ostrand doubled and Sandy Leon was intentionally walked, Ricky Hague doubled down the left-field line to knock in both runners. He then scored a batter later when Demny helped himself out with an RBI double. DeGrom’s night ended after 5 2/3 innings. He gave up six runs on nine hits. He is now 0-4 in five Double-A starts. In deGrom’s outings, Binghamton has scored a total of five runs. Collin Cowgill had two hits , which were two doubles and drove in a run..  Box

Class A - SAVANNAH 3, ROME 1: Down 1-0 in the sixth, South Atlantic League batting-average leader Kevin Plawecki drew a walk to begin what ended up being a three-run frame. A hit-by-pitch and then a single loaded the bases. Plawecki scored on a wild pitch by Braves starter Rafael Briceno to even the score at 1. Greg Pron followed with a walk to reload the bases and chase Briceno. Facing reliever Alex Wilson in his Rome debut, Jeff Glenn lifted a sacrifice fly, scoring Cole Frenzel. The other runners, Maikis De La Cruz and Pron, also tagged. Braves third baseman Carlos Franco's throw to second, in his attempt on Pron, sailed into right field, allowing De La Cruz to score the Gnats' third run. De La Cruz, who was added to the Gnats' roster on Thursday, was 2-for-4. The Braves scored the game's first run on a solo homer by Casey Kalenkosky in the second against left-hander Steven Matz. Matz (2-0, 1.85 ERA) completed six innings for the first time this season. He allowed one run on six hits with four strikeouts and one walk.
