BUFFALO 9, LOUISVILLE 4: On the day he officially became one of three Bisons selections to the Triple-A All-Star Game, which Buffalo will host July 11, Valentino Pascucci broke out of a funk in a big way. Pascucci went 3-for-3 with three doubles, five RBIs and a walk as the Bisons snapped a seven-game losing streak. Matt Harvey and closer Fernando Cabrera will join Pascucci as All-Stars. On Wednesday, Josh Satin evened the score at 3 in the third with a single that plated Jordany Valdespin, who had tripled. Rob Johnson then gave Buffalo the lead an inning later with a solo homer. In the fifth, Pascucci doubled to drive in Satin and increase the lead to 5-3. Pascucci's three-run double in the sixth gave Buffalo a six-run cushion. "I've been trying lately to get out of my struggles," said Pascucci, who had been 1-for-22 in his previous six games. "It felt good to get hits, and hit them over the fielder instead of right at them," Pascucci said. Left-hander Garrett Olson tossed 6 1/3 innings and allowed three runs on seven hits. Olson notched his first win since June 7. Box

BOWIE 7, BINGHAMTON 3: Bowie wasted little time grabbing the lead, scoring three runs in the first against starter Gonzalez Germen. Antoan Richardson led off with a single, stole second and scored on a double by Josh Barfield, the first of his three RBIs. Two batters later, Manny Machado launched his second homer of the series. After being kept in check by starter Tim Bascom for two innings, the B-Mets produced a two-out rally in the third. Juan Lagares singled, advanced on a walk and scored on Jefry Marte’s single. Wilmer Flores cut the deficit to one by blasting a solo homer, his first long ball in Double-A, in the fourth inning. Germen ultimately allowed four runs on six hits while striking out three. Jeff Stevens took over in the sixth and posted two perfect frames. Trailing by two, the B-Mets threatened in the seventh against reliever Chris Petrini. Lagares walked and Reese Havens supplied a two-out single, but the rally stalled when Marte bounced back to the mound to start an inning-ending double play. After Bowie extended the lead with three runs against Erik Turgeon, Petrini closed things out. His only blemish was an RBI single by Lagares in the ninth. Bascom (4-5) snapped a six-game winless streak, earning his first victory since May 19. Germen (4-5) watched his three-game winning streak end. Box

DAYTONA 12, ST. LUCIE 1: The Cubs pounded out 17 hits and pulled away with a six-run fifth. Blake Forsythe went 2-for-4 with an RBI double in the eighth inning to account for the lone run. Rylan Sandoval went 2-for-5 and scored on Forsythe's hit. Yohan Almonte allowed a season-high 11 runs and 12 hits in five innings with one walk and one strikeout. Matt Szczur hit a grand slam off Almonte in the fifth to give the Cubs an 11-0 lead. Taylor Whitenton pitched two innings and gave up one run and four hits and recorded one strikeout. Adam Kolarek tossed a pair of scoreless innings. Box

CHARLESTON 8, SAVANNAH 5: Randy Fontanez was charged with three unearned runs in the bottom of the eighth as Charleston completed a comeback. Charleston loaded the bases on a pair of singles and a walk with none out in the frame before left fielder Dustin Lawley and shortstop Ismael Tijerina committed errors. Cam Maron's first-inning homer had staked Savannah to an early lead. Aderlin Rodriguez's three-run shot in the sixth put the Gnats ahead, 5-2. Starter Logan Verrett was charged with five runs in 6 2/3 innings. Box

DANVILLE 8, KINGSPORT 1: Starter Persio Reyes allowed five runs on seven hits and three walks in 4 2/3 innings. Eris Peguero went 3-for-4 with a double and drove in the lone K-Mets run in the loss. Box

BROOKLYN 4, HUDSON VALLEY 1: Starter Hansel Robles tossed 5 2/3 scoreless innings and Tyler Vanderheiden notched his third save with a scoreless ninth. The Cyclones built a 4-0 lead behind an RBI groundout from Nelfi Zapata in the second, Phillip Evans' run-scoring fielder's-choice groundout and an error in the third, and Eudy Pina's RBI single in the fourth.
