Travis Taijeron ultimately singled to plate Darrell Ceciliani with the go-ahead run. Binghamton turned a one-run game into a blowout by hanging five runs on reliever Jose Valdez in the ninth, highlighted by Boyd's two-run single. Mazzoni (2-0) struck out nine while allowing three runs and five hits over seven innings. Jack Leathersich and Cody Satterwhite each tossed a scoreless relief inning. Box

Mets High A - ST. LUCIE 5, LAKELAND 4 (10 innings): Lakeland’s Austin Green launched a game-tying solo homer against T.J. Chism with two outs and two strikes in the ninth, but the Mets recovered to snap their four-game losing streak. L.J. Mazzilli doubled to lead off the bottom of the 10th against Nate Fury and moved to third on Cam Maron’s single. Jared King struck out for the first out of the inning. Fury’s first pitch to Phillip Evans then bounced away from Green, the catcher, and Mazzilli slid safely into home to give the Mets a walk-off victory. Paul Sewald pitched a perfect top of the 10th to earn the win. Maikis De La Cruz had put the Mets ahead, 1-0, in the third with a single. Maron followed later that inning with a two-out, two-run single to make it 3-0. Evans belted his third homer of the season in the sixth to put the Mets up by four runs. Mets starter Luis Cessa cruised for most of the night. After Andy Dirks led off the game with a single, Cessa only allowed one more baserunner until the top of the seventh. In the seventh, Chad Wright led off with a single. Cessa rebounded to get a pop out and a strikeout, but Green extended the inning with a single. That brought up James Robbins, who launched a three-run homer to cut the Mets’ lead to 4-3. Cessa escaped further damage when Maron threw out Jared Reaves trying to steal second. Cessa struck out eight in seven innings. He allowed five hits and one walk. Beck Wheeler struck out three in 1 1/3 relief innings. Mazzilli’s leadoff double in the 10th extended his hitting streak to nine games. Box

Mets AA - ERIE 7, BINGHAMTON 3: Four B-Mets errors led to three unearned runs as a four-game winning streak ended. Erie grabbed the lead against Rainy Lara in the first. Following consecutive singles, Daniel Fields sent a potential double-play ball to third. It rolled under Dustin Lawley’s glove for an error. Runner Jamie Johnson collided with Lawley on his way to third and was tagged out after stopping between third and home when he incorrectly thought the play had been ruled dead. With runners at the corners, ensuing batter Steven Moya lifted a sacrifice fly for a 1-0 lead. The B-Mets flirted with cracking the scoreboard in the fourth against Kyle Ryan. Travis Taijeron pulled a two-out single into left. T.J. Rivera attempted to score from second, but Johnson gunned him down. After surrendering four hits to the first seven batters he faced, Lara settled in. He stranded two in the second, starting a stretch in which he retired 11 of 12. Lara's run ended in the sixth when the SeaWolves loaded the bases. Lara then uncorked a two-out wild pitch, prompting Devon Travis to dash home with Erie’s second run. Catcher Xorge Carrillo’s toss to the plate sailed past Lara and allowed Steven Moya to also scamper home. Dixon Machado capped the three-run inning with an RBI double as Erie took a 4-0 lead.
