SALT LAKE 3, LAS VEGAS 0: Caleb Clay went the distance in a three-hit shutout for the Bees. Rafael Montero allowed one run on five hits and three walks in four innings in his first Triple-A appearance since June 14. Montero had been dealing with a strained left oblique. Wilmer Flores went 1-for-4 with a seventh-inning single to extend his hitting streak to 21 games. That is the longest streak by a Las Vegas player since J.P. Arencibia had a 21-game streak in 2010 while Vegas was affiliated with the Blue Jays. The Vegas record is 37 games by Joey Cora in 1989. Erik Goeddel allowed two runs in the sixth. Box

Burgamy launched the first pitch he saw from Dan Camarena in the first inning into the rail yard beyond the left-field wall. Burgamy snapped an 0-for-18 drought with the shot. Lawley followed by lining an 0-1 pitch just over the left-field fence, giving Binghamton a 3-0 lead. Burgamy struck again in the fifth. After Dilson Herrera ripped his first triple as a B-Met, Burgamy blistered the first pitch he saw off the message board in left field for his 17th homer and a 5-0 lead. B-Mets starter Greg Peavey retired the first five Thunder batters he faced before surrendering a double to Tyler Austin. Peavey responded by retiring 13 of the next 14 batters he faced. Trenton threatened in the seventh, putting the first two aboard via a hit batter and a single. Peavey rebounded with consecutive strikeouts before Francisco Arcia looped a single to shallow left. Rob Segedin scampered home from second with Trenton’s first run before Gary Sanchez was nabbed at third on the play. The Thunder pulled within three runs in the eighth against reliever Jack Leathersich. After Casey Stevenson advanced to third on a double play, Ben Gamel lined an RBI single. Cody Satterwhite worked around a two-out single in a scoreless ninth to secure his eighth save. Peavey (7-1) allowed one run on four hits while collecting seven strikeouts over seven innings. Box

TAMPA 4, ST. LUCIE 1: The Mets mustered five hits, with their lone run coming on a two-out homer in the first inning from L.J. Mazzilli. Aderlin Rodriguez hit a ground-rule double later in the first, but the Mets ultimately stranded the bases loaded when Miguel Sulbaran got Gavin Cecchini to ground into a fielder's choice. Tampa relievers Jacob Lindgren, Brett Gerritse and Cesar Vargas held the Mets to one hit over four innings. Dante Bichette Jr. gave the Yankees the lead for good with an opposite-field two-run homer over the short porch in right field in the fourth. Eric Jagielo lined a homer just fair in the right-field corner and chased starter Luis Cessa in the sixth inning while making the score 3-1. Cessa pitched 5 2/3 innings and struck out six. Danny Oh added an RBI single against Robert Coles in the seventh. Box

Yeixon Ruiz produced a two-run homer and Nelfi Zapata added an RBI double. In the fifth, Dominic Smith drove in two runs as part of a 3-for-3 game. In Game 2, Smith singled in a run in the fifth to complete the game's scoring. Savannah starter Alex Panteliodis held the Legends to one run in six innings. The lone run he allowed came on a lengthy homer by Legends first baseman Fred Ford. Matt Oberste singled in both games to extend his hitting streak to 20 games, the third-longest streak in the South Atlantic League this season. Box 1, Box 2

KINGSPORT 7, PRINCETON 3: Starter Andrew Church limited Princeton to two unearned runs in six innings. Pedro Perez's two-run homer in the sixth gave the K-Mets a 3-2 lead. Oswald Caraballo had a two-run double in a three-run seventh. Box

combined with Scarlyn Reyes on a two-hit shutout. In a two-run first, Amed Rosario reached on an error by Williamsport starter Ricardo Pinto. Jhoan Urena singled to push Rosario to second base. First-round pick Michael Conforto advanced both runners on a groundout. Michael Katz followed with a routine line drive at left fielder Jiandido Tromp. The ball hit off the heel of Tromp's glove and dropped. Two runs scored on the two-base error. The Cyclones upped their lead to 5-0 in the second inning. Tomas Nido contributed an RBI single and Urena had a two-run double. Williamsport’s fifth error of the game came when shortstop Emmanuel Marrero could not track down a two-out grounder by Michael Bernal in the fifth. Conforto, who went 2-for-4 and started in left field in his second professional game, scored from second base on the play. Box
