LAS VEGAS 11, MEMPHIS 5: Noah Syndergaard surrendered a two-run homer to Xavier Scruggs in a three-run first by the Redbirds. Syndergaard dominated for a while after Scruggs' longball, retiring the next 16 batters as Vegas raced to an 8-3 lead. However, Stephen Piscotty singled to open the seventh and Pete Kozma launched a two-run homer with one out in the frame. So Syndergaard ultimately was charged with five runs on six hits while striking out seven and walking none in 6 2/3 innings. Travis d'Arnaud went 2-for-5 with two doubles and an RBI and is hitting .453 in Triple-A. Anthony Seratelli had a three-run homer in a five-run third. Cesar Puello finished 2-for-3 with a homer, five RBIs and a walk. Ex-Met Pedro Feliciano tossed two scoreless innings in relief for the Redbirds. Box

BINGHAMTON 7, BOWIE 6: Left-hander Steven Matz allowed five runs on seven hits and

Matz
two walks in 5 2/3 innings in his Double-A debut. Relievers Ryan Fraser, Adam Kolarek and Cody Satterwhite then limited Bowie to one run the rest of the way as the B-Mets rallied for their 11th win in 12 games. Trailing 5-3, Binghamton took the lead with a three-run seventh against Anthony Vasquez. Kevin Plawecki deposited an RBI double into the right-field corner, cutting Bowie’s lead to one. Jayce Boyd followed by plating Plawecki with the tying run on a double. Three batters later, Boyd scampered home with the go-ahead run when reliever Steven Hensley uncorked a wild pitch. The B-Mets tacked on a much-needed insurance run in the eighth. Pinch-hitter Kyle Johnson reached safely with a two-out double when his innocent popup behind second fell to the outfield turf. Plawecki brought him home by threading a single into left field. Bowie had one last gasp offensively in the eighth. Rehabbing Oriole Nolan Reimold doubled against Kolarek and his pinch-runner, Johnny Ruettiger, scored on consecutive groundouts to trim Binghamton’s lead to one. Satterwhite took the reins in the ninth and posted a perfect inning, fanning Garabez Rosa to lock down his third save. Fraser (1-0) retired all four Baysox he faced after replacing Matz in the sixth to pick up his first win. Box

FORT MYERS 3, ST. LUCIE 0
ST. LUCIE 2, FORT MYERS 0: Game 1 starter Michael Fulmer took a line drive off the forearm on his left, glove hand on his third pitch of the game. The baseball was hit so hard

lastname
Fulmer
by Jorge Polanco that it ricocheted into right field. Fulmer did not suffer a fracture, Paul DePodesta said. Julian Hilario took over. Polanco, who was safe at first on the single, scored on Lance Ray’s sac fly later in the inning. Adam Brett Walker scored Fort Myers’ second run on a wild pitch by Jake Kuebler in the fourth. Ray added a two-out RBI double against Kuebler in the fifth. In Game 2, Matt Koch pitched 5 2/3 scoreless innings and combined with recently demoted T.J. Chism as well as Paul Sewald on a four-hit shutout. Koch (7-2) surrendered a leadoff single in the first inning and issued a one-out walk. He then got Walker to ground into an inning-ending double play. That started a streak of 15 straight batters retired. The Mets scored their opening run in the second inning against Steven Gruver. With one out and runners on the corners, Maikis De La Cruz bunted back to Gruver, who tried to throw home to retire Gilbert Gomez. Instead, Gomez slid in safely. Jairo Perez drove in the second run when his fifth-inning infield single with two outs plated Eudy Pina. Koch ran into trouble in the sixth when he gave up back-to-back hits with one out. He induced Aderling Mejia to fly out. Chism then recorded the final out of the sixth when Nate Roberts grounded out. Sewald pitched around a two-out single in the seventh to earn his first save. Box 1, Box 2

SAVANNAH 7, GREENVILLE 6 (11 innings): Champ Stuart walked, stole second, advanced to third on a flyout and scored the go-ahead run on Victor Cruzado's single in the top of the 11th. Akeel Morris issued a two-out walk, then completed a scoreless bottom half to record his fourth save. Nelfi Zapata, Stefan Sabol and Jeff Glenn each went 3-for-5. Glenn drove in four runs. Zapata had three doubles. Starter Alex Panteliodis allowed four runs on 13 hits in 5 1/3 innings. Box

Brosher
KINGSPORT 9, DANVILLE 5: Brandon Brosher, a 36th-round pick out of high school in Florida in 2013, had a pair of two-run homers and finished 3-for-4. Eudor Garcia, the Mets' fourth-round pick out of junior college in Texas this month, went 2-for-2 with two walks and three runs scored. Starter Yoan Gonzalez limited Danville to two runs on five hits and three walks in seven innings. Box

BROOKLYN 3, ABERDEEN 1 (11 innings): Marcos Molina, Edioglis Villasmil and Juan Urbina combined to toss a two-hit shutout with no walks through 10 innings as the game remained scoreless. In the top of the 11th, Brooklyn (7-2) took a 1-0 lead on Stefan Crichton's wild pitch, which plated Tucker Tharp. Michael Bernal had an RBI single and Tyler Moore scored on Jhoan Urena's bunt to complete the three-run frame. Shane Bay surrendered two singles and a sac fly to open the bottom half but nonetheless recorded his third save. Rehabbing Oriole Dylan Bundy, the fourth overall pick in 2011, started for Aberdeen. He limited the Cyclones to two hits and a walk while striking out nine in five innings. Box

GCL NATIONALS 8, GCL METS 0: Cory Mazzoni, who suffered a strained right lat muscle

lastname
Mazzoni
in the final Grapefruit League game, appeared in an official game for the first time since suffering the injury as the Mets were prepared to break camp. The former second-round pick out of NC State allowed two runs on five hits and a walk while striking out seven in four innings. Luis Mateo, a year after undergoing Tommy John surgery, relieved Mazzoni and was charged with five runs (one earned) in 1 1/3 innings in his first official game action since the elbow procedure. Juan Lagares went 0-for-4 and played a full game in center field in his second rehab appearance. The Mets produced only three hits -- singles by John Mora, Dionis Rodriguez and Enmanuel Zabala. Box
