New Hampshire pounded Binghamton starter Luis Cessa for eleven hits and four runs in five innings, and would finish the afternoon with twenty hits in all as they coasted to a 10-5 win. Cessa had put up eleven scoreless innings to open the season, but the Fisher Cats had other plans. K.C. Hobson led the way going five-for-five and drove home three runs.

Brandon Nimmo, Jared King, and Eudy Pina each picked up two hits for the B-Mets, who dropped their third straight decision, falling back to the .500 mark on the year.

  • Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (9-8)_____________________________________

    ST. LUCIE 4, FORT MYERS 3 (Box)

    One day after winning a 17-inning marathon over Fort Myers, St. Lucie rallied to tie the game in the ninth and went on to win again in the eleventh on a Matt Oberste walk-off single that scored Jeff McNeil from second base.

    Trailing 3-0 in the sixth, the comeback began when the red-hot Michael Conforto cranked a two-run homer, his fifth on the season, drawing St. Lucie within a run. Conforto would also start the rally in the bottom of the ninth with a lead off double. He scored the tying run when Victor Cruzado doubled him in.

    Rob Whalen made his third consecutive strong start for St. Lucie, allowing two earned runs on four hits over seven and two-thirds innings.

    Low-A - Savannah Sand Gnats (5-11)__________________________________


      Savannah jumped out to an early lead, but were unable to hold on against Charleston, dropping their third straight contest 6-5.

      John Mora hit a two-run triple highlighting a four-run third inning, that staked Sand Gnats' starter Josh Prevost to a 4-0 lead. Prevost couldn't make it hold up and committed two throwing errors en route to allowing six runs (four earned) over six innings of work.

    • PH-RF Wuilmer Becerra: 1-1
    • CF John Mora: 1-5, R, 3B, 2 RBI, 2 K

    Star of the Night

    Michael Conforto. He just continues to mash FSL pitching. Apologies to Matt Oberste and his walk-off heroics.

    Goat of the Night

    Josh Prevost. His two throwing errors did not help his cause.
