By Danny Knobler | Special to ESPNNewYork.com

READING at BINGHAMTON (ppd.): The game will be made up later in the season in Reading. Even before the game was postponed, the Mets had pulled Juan Lagares out of the lineup because they didn't want him to play on a wet field

FORT MYERS 8, ST. LUCIE 6: Starting pitcher John Lannan, in his first start since rejoining the Mets organization, walked four of the six batters he faced and allowed five runs. Lannan walked the first two hitters he faced, then had to sit through a 20-minute lightning delay. The Mets had taken a 6-0 lead in the top of the first, with ninth-place hitter Eudy Pina contributing a two-run single. Aderlin Rodriguez went 3-for-3, and L.J. Mazzilli singled and doubled. Box

SAVANNAH 4, CHARLESTON 0: Robert Gsellman allowed just five hits in seven shutout innings for his sixth win of the year, with Dawrin Frias pitching two perfect innings to complete the shutout and earn his first save. Champ Stuart and Yeixon Ruiz drove in runs in the Sand Gnats' two-run third inning. Box

BROOKLYN 5, ABERDEEN 1: Starting pitcher Octavio Acosta allowed just one hit in six innings for his second straight win. The lone hit was an Alex Murphy home run with two out in the first inning. Michael Katz and Tyler Moore each had two of the Cyclones' eight hits. Box

KINGSPORT 7, PRINCETON 4: Right-fielder Wullmer Becera hit a three-run home run for the Mets. Luis Guillorme, Eudor Garcia and Brandon Bosher each had two of the Mets' 10 hits. Starting pitcher Christian Montgomery allowed four runs (three earned) in 3 2/3 innings, but three relievers combined to shut out the Rays (with nine strikeouts) the rest of the way. Box

GCL MARLINS 7, GCL METS 4: Jose Figuera and Manuel Hilario each had two hits for the Mets, who committed five errors and watched starting pitcher Eucebio Arias walk three batters in 3 2/3 innings. Box
