LAS VEGAS 8, NASHVILLE 7: Cesar Puello had a game-tying RBI double and Cory Vaughn plated Travis d'Arnaud with a walk-off single in the bottom of the ninth. Nashville had taken a 7-6 lead in the top half on Hunter Morris' leadoff homer against Buddy Carlyle. D'Arnaud finished 2-for-5 with a double. He is hitting .395 since his demotion. Box

BINGHAMTON 5, RICHMOND 1: Reigning Eastern League Player of the Week Brian Burgamy launched a grand slam and Matt Bowman fired six scoreless innings. In his last

six games, Burgamy has produced 13 hits, including four homers, and 13 RBIs. Burgamy kick-started the B-Mets with a one-out double in the first against Ty Blach. He moved to third on Matt Reynolds' single. Kevin Plawecki then put Binghamton on the board with a sac fly, for his 41st RBI. Bowman retired the first eight batters he faced and allowed three hits in six scoreless innings. His biggest challenge came in the sixth when Richmond loaded the bases with two outs. Bowman (5-4) escaped by inducing Devin Harris to bounce back to the mound. The B-Mets came alive in the bottom half, loading the bases against Andrew Carignan. With two outs, Burgamy greeted new reliever Josh Osich by hammering the lefty’s first pitch into the rail yard beyond the left-field wall. His team-leading 11th homer gave Binghamton a 5-0 lead. After Chase Huchingson and Ryan Fraser each tossed a scoreless inning, Jack Leathersich was touched for one run in the ninth. Burgamy’s grand slam was the first by a B-Met since Richard Lucas against Trenton on July 26, 2013. Box

ST. LUCIE 10, CHARLOTTE 5: St. Lucie kept its first-half championship alive in a must-win game. The Mets still trail Fort Myers by a half-game in the Florida State League South Division. It all comes down to the final game of the first half on Wednesday. The Mets need to beat Charlotte and have Fort Myers lose to Bradenton to win the first half and clinch a playoff spot. It looked dicey early for the Mets (40-29) on Tuesday. Charlotte scored two runs in the first and Josh Sale’s RBI double with no outs in the second gave the Stone Crabs a 3-0 lead. Mets starter Luis Cessa would be pulled with two outs in the second inning. But the Mets responded in their half of the second. Maikis De La Cruz and Yeixon Ruiz both hit groundouts that plated runs to cut the deficit to 3-2. The Mets blew the game open in the third with seven runs on five hits. The Stone Crabs helped out by committing two errors. Starter Blake Snell also walked two and threw two wild pitches in the frame. Jairo Perez tied the score at 3 with a sacrifice fly. Then, with runners at first and second, Aderlin Rodriguez grounded back to Snell for what looked like a sure out. With the sun in his eyes, first baseman Patrick Leonard ducked on Snell’s throw and it went over his head. T.J. Rivera scored to give the Mets a 4-3 lead as Brandon Nimmo and Rodriguez advanced to third and second, respectively. The wheels came off for the Crabs. De La Cruz drove in a run on a grounder that was booted by shortstop Leonardo Reginatto, Eudy Pina doubled in a run, Ruiz singled in a run and Dilson Herrera drove in Ruiz with a double. By the end of the third, the Mets led 9-3. Reliever Bruedlin Suero balked in a run in the fourth to complete the Mets' scoring. Meanwhile, Seth Lugo recorded the final out of the second and proceeded to strike out seven over 5 1/3 innings. His only blemish was surrendering a two-run homer to Justin O’Connor that made it 10-5. Julian Hilario recorded the final six outs. Ruiz finished 4-for-5. Box

SAL SOUTH 4, SAL NORTH 4 (10 innings): Gnats closer Robert Coles allowed two runs in the bottom of the 10th for the blown save as the South Atlantic League All-Star Game ended in a draw. Savannah pitchers actually surrendered all four runs scored by the North. Kevin McGowan allowed a second-inning run and Dario Alvarez was charged with a run in the eighth. Gavin Cecchini played a full game at shortstop and went 1-for-4 with a walk and run scored. Box

BROOKLYN 5, HUDSON VALLEY 1: Corey Oswalt tossed six scoreless innings in his season debut, limiting the Renegades to three hits while striking out eight. Scarlyn Reyes earned the save. He allowed one unearned run in three relief innings. Brooklyn scored three first-inning runs. After an error and single, Michael Katz had a two-run triple. Tomas Nido followed with a run-scoring groundout. Joe Tuschak added a solo homer in the fourth for a 4-0 lead. In the ninth, the first baseman Katz mishandled a groundball to his left, allowing Hudson Valley's lone run to score. Box

RENO 3, LAS VEGAS 0: Juan Lagares started in center field and led off as his rehab assignment shifted to Vegas. He went 1-for-4 with a strikeout and played the full game. Danny Muno started at shortstop a day after Wilmer Flores departed with a jammed finger. Flores was able to pinch hit. Starter Dana Eveland allowed one run in 5 2/3 innings while striking out eight.

walks issued by Tyler Pill to take a 1-0 lead. Giovanny Urshela made Pill pay with an RBI single. Pill settled in. The righty worked around an error in a scoreless second, posted a shutout third and struck out the side in the fourth. He worked around a one-out single in the fifth and departed trailing 1-0. Akron starter Will Roberts tamed the B-Mets through six innings. Reynolds collected Binghamton’s first hit in the fourth inning. Cory Vaughn followed with a single, but the B-Mets could not break through. Reynolds started another threat in the sixth. With two outs, he ripped a drive into the left-field alley for his first triple of the season. He was stranded when Matt Clark flied out. The RubberDucks took advantage of sloppy B-Mets fielding behind Adam Kolarek in the eighth. Third baseman Dustin Lawley booted a grounder to start the inning and the shortstop Reynolds followed by bungling a potential double-play grounder. After a sac bunt and an intentional walk, Bryan LaHair ripped two-run double. Tony Wolters capped the inning's scoring with an RBI single. Pill (0-4) allowed one run on three hits in the hard-luck loss. The B-Mets have provided him with an average of 2.0 runs per game in his four starts. Pill has started both of Binghamton’s shutout losses. The B-Mets have committed six errors in their past two games -- the most in a two-game span since they had seven in back-to-back games in June 2011. Box

ST. LUCIE 7, CHARLOTTE 3: Brandon Nimmo went 4-for-4 with a homer and double. He

Aderlin Rodriguez belted his third homer in five days to give the Mets a 2-0 lead in the fourth. Jairo Perez added a two-run shot against Bruedlin Suero in the fifth to open a 5-2 lead. Eudy Pina led off the sixth with his first homer of the year. Nimmo lined a long ball over the right-field wall in his final at-bat, in the eighth, to make it 7-2. Matt Koch tossed six strong innings, allowing four hits and two runs while earning his second win. He held the Stone Crabs without a hit through the first four innings. Jake Kuebler pitched a scoreless seventh and eighth. Randy Fontanez gave up a leadoff triple in the ninth but retired the next three batters out to finish off the Crabs. T.J. Rivera went 2-for-4 and delivered the go-ahead RBI double in the fifth against Suero to put the Mets ahead 3-2. Rivera and Nimmo both are hitting .407, tied for the best average in the Florida State League. Box
