lastname Montero BINGHAMTON 5, PORTLAND 0: Rafael Montero, Chase Huchingson and Jack Leathersich combined on a four-hit shutout. Allan Dykstra and Darrell Ceciliani homered in a three-run eighth to chase knuckleballer Charlie Haeger. The B-Mets had opened the scoring in the first when Josh Rodriguez singled, advanced to second on a hit by pitch and scored two wild pitches later. Rodriguez (1-for-3, 1 BB) also scored in the third on a wild pitch. Montero (5-3) allowed four hits and two walks while striking out a season-high eight in six innings. It was Montero's first start with the B-Mets (28-22) since returning from a spot start with Las Vegas. He escaped a first-inning jam with two runners in scoring position and none out. Box

lastname Taijeron ST. LUCIE 8, BRADENTON 2: Travis Taijeron went 2-for-4 and drove in four runs, including a two-run single in the fifth that gave St. Lucie a 5-2 lead.

AUGUSTA 3, SAVANNAH 1 (12 innings): In his second inning of relief, Hunter Carnavale surrendered two runs in the 12th, including the tiebreaking run on Joseph Rapp's RBI

lastname Carnevale single. The Gnats had rallied to tie the score at 1 in the eighth when Kevin Plawecki plated Yucarybert De La Cruz with a line-drive single to center. Savannah starter Luis Cessa allowed one run on seven hits and two walks while striking out seven in 6 2/3 innings in a hard-luck no-decision. After a scoreless ninth from Bret Mitchell (1.17 ERA), the Gnats (28-20) nearly posted a walk-off win in the bottom half. Augusta's Mason McVay hit Cole Frenzel with a pitch. Frenzel then departed for pinch runner Eudy Pina. After a walk to Stefan Sabol, Augusta inserted closer Tyler Mizenko. He proceeded to load the bases with none out on Nelfi Zapata's single. But neither Phillip Evans nor Yucarybert De La Cruz could produce the game-winning RBI. Each instead forced runners out at home with groundballs. Mizenko then coaxed an inning-ending groundout from Maikis De La Cruz. Jayce Boyd went 3-for-5 with a walk in the loss to improve his on-base percentage to .430, ranked third in the South Atlantic League. Box
