PAWTUCKET 5, BUFFALO 1: Pedro Beato surrendered four eighth-inning runs, including consecutive homers to Mauro Gomez and Andy LaRoche. Starter Collin McHugh limited Pawtucket to one run on three hits and four walks in 5 2/3 innings. Buffalo's lone run came on a first-inning sacrifice fly by Josh Satin. Satin lost an 11-game hitting streak. Pawtucket retired 21 straight Bisons batters from Mike Nickeas' second-inning single until Zach Lutz's two-out single in the ninth. Box

SAVANNAH 4, LEXINGTON 3: The first two Savannah runs scored on balks from Legends starter Chris Devenski. Dustin Lawley drove home the Gnats’ third and fourth runs, in the third and fifth innings, with sacrifice flies. Savannah starter Michael Fulmer kept Lexington off the scoreboard through four innings. In the fifth, the Legends broke through against Fulmer on a Chan Jong Moon RBI single. Fulmer struck out four and walked three while allowing one run to earn his seventh win. The Gnats took a comfortable-looking 4-1 lead into the ninth. However, reliever Chasen Bradford walked the first three batters in the inning to put the tying run at first with no outs. Savannah called on T.J. Chism, who walked the first batter he saw to force in a run. A groundout on the right side brought home the third Lexington run and moved the tying run to third with one out. Chism then struck out Moon and induced a flyout to shallow right to close out his 17th save. Box
