GWINNETT 6, BUFFALO 1: Gwinnett righty Todd Redmond tossed six scoreless innings despite Buffalo producing a hit in each of those frames. Valentino Pascucci doubled to lead off the fourth, but was thrown out by left fielder Stefan Gartrell trying to stretch it to a triple. In the fifth, Omar Quintanilla reached on his second hit of the game but was picked off by Redmond. "A lot of base running mistakes, miscues hurt us today," manager Wally Backman said. Gwinnett took advantage of its chances, scoring six runs on seven hits. Gartrell hit a two-run homer in the top of the first. In the sixth, Gwinnett scored four more runs on four hits, knocking starter Jeremy Hefner from the game. In between the first and sixth innings, Hefner pitched four innings of no-hit innings. "Hefner struggled in that one inning, which we'll work on for his next start, but aside from that positives can be taken out from his performance earlier in the game," Backman said. Hefner, who entered the game with the second-lowest ERA in the International League, saw his ERA increase to 2.72. The Bisons scored their lone run in the ninth inning, when Fred Lewis led off with a triple and scored on a groundout from Vinny Rottino. Rottino went 1-for-3 with a walk to extend his Triple-A hitting streak to 18 games. Box

TRENTON 10, BINGHAMTON 1: The Thunder offense erupted for 16 hits, including nine in an eight-run eighth inning. Trenton starter Shaeffer Hall baffled Binghamton over 6 2/3 scoreless innings. B-Mets starter Mark Cohoon (2-4) had thrown seven strong innings before things unraveled. With the B-Mets trailing by two, the southpaw started the eight, but failed to record an out. The first five Thunder reached safely, highlighted by two-run homers by Corban Joseph and Luke Murton. Erik Turgeon entered in relief, but struggled. He allowed four more hits and watched as the Thunder tacked on four additional runs. In all, Trenton sent 12 men to the plate and set season highs with nine hits and eight runs in the inning. The B-Mets managed five hits against Hall. The southpaw threw a first-pitch strike to the first 22 batters he faced and cruised through six innings before allowing a pair of singles in the seventh. With the Thunder leading by two at the time, manager Tony Franklin called upon Kelvin Perez to get the final out of the frame. The righty struck out Sean Kazmar to end Binghamton’s final threat. Binghamton plated its lone run in the eighth against Perez. Matt den Dekker extended his hitting streak to 10 games with a double. He scored on Juan Lagares’ double. Box
