FRESNO 10, LAS VEGAS 1: Noah Syndergaard (A/C joint sprain) watched the game from the stands wearing a sling. Pitching coach Frank Viola joined the 51s after recovering from April 2 open-heart surgery. Starter Darin Gorski allowed four runs in five innings. Relievers Zack Thornton, Miguel Socolovich and John Church allowed two runs apiece. Box

NEW BRITAIN 6, BINGHAMTON 3: New Britain first baseman Kennys Vargas produced a grand slam and two-run double to hand the B-Mets their sixth loss in seven games. Before Vargas’ power display, Binghamton opened scoring in the first against New Britain starter Virgil Vasquez. Brian Burgamy worked a one-out walk and moved to third on a single by Jayce Boyd. Darrell Ceciliani laced a two-out single to plate both runners for a 2-0 lead. B-Mets starter Matt Bowman fanned six batters through the first five innings, but ran into trouble in the sixth. Tony Thomas started a Rock Cats rally with a single. Eddie Rosario then doubled and Bowman walked Nate Hanson to load the bases. That brought Vargas to the plate with none out. He smashed a pitch over the right-field wall to give the Rock Cats a 4-2 lead. The B-Mets got a run back in the bottom half on Matt Clark's solo homer. That would be all Binghamton could produce against Vasquez. At one point, the veteran righty retired 14 of 15 B-Mets batters. Vargas drove in two insurance runs in the seventh against Adam Kolarek. Bowman (3-4) went 5 2/3 innings, gave up four runs and struck out seven. Cody Satterwhite and Ryan Fraser combined to pitch 2 2/3 scoreless relief innings in the loss. Box

ST. LUCIE 5, DUNEDIN 0: Gabriel Ynoa tossed seven scoreless innings and limited the Blue Jays to four hits. He struck out 11, a season high for any Mets pitcher, and did not

issue a walk. 2011 first-round pick Brandon Nimmo was forced to leave the game after he was hit by Matt Boyd on the right wrist/forearm in the fifth. He initially stayed in the game, but departed an inning later after trying to swing a bat. In the first inning, T.J. Rivera had a two-out single against Boyd. Jairo Perez then drilled a ball to left field. With the sun in his eyes, Dwight Smith Jr. misjudged the ball and it went passed him, allowing Rivera to score. In the sixth, Eudy Pina singled home Perez with the bases loaded to make it 2-0. Albert Cordero crushed his first home run of the season, a two-run shot in the eighth, to extend the lead to 4-0. Perez made it a two-hit night in the ninth, driving in Dilson Herrera to cap the scoring. Ynoa surrendered a pair of two-out singles in the first, but Cordero tagged out Marcus Knecht trying to score on a double-steal bid to end the inning. Ynoa retired 18 of the last 20 he faced, including the final seven. Gonzalez Germen, in his fourth rehab appearance, allowed one hit and struck out two in the eighth. Randy Fontanez, voted to the Florida State League All-Star Game earlier this week, struck out two and also stranded two in the ninth to close out the game. Box

SAVANNAH 10, CHARLESTON 4: L.J. Mazzilli and Amed Rosario homered. Jeff McNeil went 3-for-4 with two RBIs and raised his average to .345. Dario Alvarez (4-0), Akeel Morris and Tyler Vanderheiden combined for 4 1/3 innings of scoreless pitching in relief of Robert Gsellman. Box
