Brown, shortstop Matt Reynolds and catcher Juan Centeno had two hits apiece, and Matt den Dekker had a pinch-hit, two-run homer in the seventh. Starter Darin Gorski lasted just three innings, giving up six runs on six hits but only two of those runs were earned. Box

BINGHAMTON 2, READING 0: Juan Lagares went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts in his second rehab game with the B-Mets, and played all nine innings in center field.

JUPITER 6, ST. LUCIE 4: Second baseman L.J. Mazilli hit his second home run of the season in a losing effort, and right-fielder Eudy Pina went 3-for-4 with a pair of doubles. Starter Luis Cessa took the loss, giving up six runs on 10 hits in five innings. Box
