EL PASO 8, LAS VEGAS 5: Starter Logan Verrett surrendered four runs in six innings, including homers to Tyler Greene, Cody Decker and Taylor Lindsey. Trailing 7-1, the 51s posted a four-run eighth that included a three-run double by Allan Dykstra. Box

NEW HAMPSHIRE 7, BINGHAMTON 2: Starter Greg Peavey allowed four first-inning runs, including a two-run homer to Matt Newman, en route to his first Eastern League loss since April 14. Peavey (8-2) followed with five straight scoreless innings. The B-Mets clawed within 4-1 in the second against Casey Lawrence. T.J. Rivera doubled, moved to third on a groundout and scored on Jayce Boyd's sacrifice fly. In the sixth, Brian Burgamy walked and stole second base. After a pair of strikeouts, Darrell Ceciliani produced an RBI double as Binghamton moved within two runs. The Fisher Cats pulled away from there, though. Hansel Robles and Jack Leathersich combined to handle the final three innings. They surrendered a total of three runs -- all unearned -- on a four-error night for the B-Mets. Box

ST. LUCIE 4, DUNEDIN 3: Michael Fulmer tossed six scoreless innings and Eudy Pina went 2-for-4 with two doubles and two RBIs. Pina's two-run double in the sixth staked St. Lucie to a 4-0 lead. Dunedin pulled within a run with a three-run eighth against Beck Wheeler. T.J. Chism inherited the tying run on second base and, after issuing a walk, coaxed an inning-ending groundout. Chism then tossed a perfect ninth for his fourth save. The intended second game was canceled because rules prohibit three doubleheaders in a seven-day span. Box

KINGSPORT 8, DANVILLE 3: Wuilmer Becerra had a two-run triple and Eudor Garcia followed with an RBI double in a five-run first inning. Box

BROOKLYN 9, AUBURN 4: 2014 first-round pick Michael Conforto finished 3-for-3 with a pair of runs scored and two RBIs and the Cyclones jumped on Auburn with a seven-run second inning. Tyler Moore began that outburst with a walk and advanced on a wild pitch. Auburn starter James Bourque then plunked Will Fulmer. Joe Tuschak followed with an RBI double. Anthony Chavez had a run-scoring infield single. Chavez ultimately scored on a successful double steal as Amed Rosario swiped second. Conforto's RBI single made it 5-0. A balk during Moore’s second at-bat of the inning plated another run. Moore's RBI double made it 7-0. Box

GCL CARDINALS 10, GCL METS 1: Dash Winningham's ninth-inning solo homer accounted for the lone Mets run. Starter Jose Celas surrendered five runs on seven hits and a walk in 1 2/3 innings. Box

LAS VEGAS 7, SALT LAKE 5 (10 innings): Jacob deGrom allowed five runs (four earned) on 10 hits and no walks in five innings. He threw 89 pitches (62 strikes) as his ERA rose to 2.58. The damage included a two-run homer in the first inning by Luis Jimenez. Eric Campbell delivered a tiebreaking RBI double in what became a two-run 10th inning. Vic Black recorded the save, striking out the side. Wilmer Flores, who is expected to be promoted for Friday's series opener against the Phillies, went 3-for-6 with a double and two RBIs. With Las Vegas trailing by two runs and two outs in the top of the ninth, Flores singled to advance Campbell to third base. Allan Dykstra followed with an RBI single to plate Campbell and pull Vegas within a run. Andrew Brown walked to load the bases, and Brandon Allen then walked too to force in the tying run. Anthony Seratelli grounded out to strand the bases loaded with the score tied at 5. Buddy Carlyle, Jeff Walters and Zack Thornton combined for four scoreless relief innings. Cesar Puello was placed on the temporary inactive list by the 51s before the game. Ex-Met Robert Carson faced two 51s batters and walked both. Box

BINGHAMTON 6, NEW HAMPSHIRE 0: Greg Peavey tossed his first career nine-inning, complete-game shutout. He allowed only two singles as the B-Mets snapped a four-game

losing streak. It was the first nine-inning shutout by a B-Met since Mark Cohoon blanked Harrisburg on Aug. 10, 2012. Peavey retired the first 11 Fisher Cats he faced before surrendering a two-out single to Andy Burns in the fourth. Peavey (2-1) shook off the hit and posted a scoreless inning. He worked around another two-out single in the fifth. Two innings after Brian Burgamy snapped an 0-for-20 skid, Burgamy also put Binghamton on the board in the third. Following Xorge Carrillo and Kyle Johnson's singles, Burgamy homered against Casey Lawrence for a 3-0 lead. Binghamton added to its lead against Lawrence in the sixth. Jayce Boyd singled. Two batters later, Dustin Lawley bounced a two-out double off the left-field wall, plating Boyd. Given a 4-0 cushion, Peavey continued to cruise. He needed 12 pitches for a perfect sixth, then posted a 1-2-3 seventh. Cory Vaughn padded Binghamton’s lead in the eighth with a two-run homer -- his first long ball of the season, which cleared a 30-foot-high batter’s eye in center. Peavey followed with a perfect eighth. Then, nearing his pitch limit, the righty returned for the ninth. He retired Aaron Munoz on one pitch and fanned Jon Berti for the second out. Kevin Nolan lifted Peavey’s 100th pitch down the right-field line. Vaughn snagged the fly in foul territory, completing Peavey's first career nine-inning performance. Peavey never allowed any Fisher Cat past first base. Carrillo extended his season-opening hitting streak to 10 games with his third-inning single. Box

PALM BEACH 6, ST. LUCIE 1: Thomas Lee limited the Florida State League’s top offense to one run on seven hits in 6 2/3 innings. The Mets’ lone run came in the third, after Lee surrendered a leadoff single to Phillip Evans and threw a wild pitch that allowed Evans to advance to second. Maikis De La Cruz followed with a run-scoring single. St. Lucie starter Michael Fulmer's downfall came in a sloppy fourth. He retired the first two hitters but gave up a single and walk and threw a wild pitch to put runners at second and third. Jesus Montero -- younger brother of the Mariners' catcher by the same name -- drove in a run to tie the score at 1 on a dribbling infield single up the third-base line. Ildemaro Vargas then hit a routine grounder to Evans, but the shortstop threw the ball out of Dilson Herrera’s reach at second base on what would have been the final out. A run scored and the inning continued. Charlie Tilson lined a two-run double to make it 4-1. David Washington added a two-run homer in the fifth to complete the scoring. Ryan Fraser and Randy Fontanez each pitched two scoreless relief innings for the Mets. Cam Maron and De La Cruz had two hits apiece. Fulmer was charged with six runs (three earned) on eight hits in five innings. Box

SAVANNAH 9, WEST VIRGINIA 3: 2012 first-round pick Gavin Cecchini went 2-for-5 with a homer and three RBIs as the Gnats overcame an early two-run deficit to improve to 21-9.

Cecchini
West Virginia struck first, scoring runs in the second and third innings, on Wyatt Mathisen's solo homer and Edwin Espinal's groundout. Although Gnats starter Ricky Knapp was tagged for nine hits in 6 2/3 innings, the right-hander limited the damage to three runs and earned his second win. Savannah responded in the fifth when Patrick Biondi singled home Dominic Smith with two outs. Cecchini then tripled home Biondi to tie the score at 2. Things fell apart for the Power in the sixth courtesy of a series of miscues. After allowing a leadoff single to L.J. Mazzilli, reliever Jerry Mulderig set up the disaster, issuing a wild pitch, walk and another wild pitch to put two runners in scoring position. Gnats runners then scored on Stefan Sabol's groundout, a throwing error by West Virginia catcher and Pirates first-round pick Reese McGuire, Matt Oberste's double, then Colton Plaia's single. Reliever Clario Perez then entered and surrendered a two-run homer to Cecchini to cap the six-run sixth. After notching eight extra-base hits -- all doubles -- in 51 games with Brooklyn last season, Cecchini already has 11 extra-base hits through 29 games with the Gnats, including two triples and three homers. Savannah reliever Tyler Vanderheiden recorded the final seven outs to preserve the lead. Box

LAS VEGAS 6, RENO 0: Dana Eveland, stepping to the rotation spot vacated by promoted Daisuke Matsuzaka, tossed five scoreless innings. He allowed three hits and two walks while striking out six. Fellow MLB veteran Buddy Carlyle made his season debut with the 51s in relief of Eveland and contributed two scoreless innings, allowing two walks and a hit. He coaxed an inning-ending double play to escape a bases-loaded jam in the seventh. Allan Dykstra continued his tear with a two-run homer in a five-run fourth inning. Wilmer Flores went 2-for-5 and drove in three runs. Las Vegas has won six straight to improve to 12-3. Box

BINGHAMTON 4, NEW HAMPSHIRE 1: Matt Bowman matched a career-high with 11 strikeouts while limiting New Hampshire to four singles and a walk over seven scoreless

innings. He retired 15 straight at one point to earn his second win in two Double-starts. Darrell Ceciliani extended his season-opening hitting streak to eight games with an infield single in the first. Matt Clark eventually plated him on a broken-bat groundout. Binghamton scored twice more in the second. With Matt Reynolds on first, Fisher Cats catcher Yusuf Carter failed to handle Scott Copeland’s first pitch to Travis Taijeron. The ball skipped to the backstop, allowing Reynolds to go from first to third. Carter’s throw to third then sailed into left field, allowing the B-Met to scamper home. Taijeron walked, took third on a single and came home on another wild pitch. It was plenty of support for Bowman. After a one-out single by Gabe Jacobo in the second, the Princeton product tossed four perfect innings. Bowman's lone jam came in the seventh. He walked Brad Glenn and surrendered a single to Andy Burns. With two aboard and two outs, Carter rolled a grounder to shortstop Wilfredo Tovar’s extreme right. Tovar got the tip of his glove on the roller, but could not fully stop it. As the ball dribbled into left field, Glenn turned third and raced for home. Tovar pounced on the baseball and fired a one-hopper to the plate in plenty of time to nab Glenn, preserving Binghamton’s 3-0 lead. The B-Mets plated their final run in the eighth against Casey Lawrence, who logged 5 2/3 relief innings. Ceciliani doubled and scored on Clark's sacrifice fly. John Church struck out two in a perfect eighth. Chasen Bradford surrendered a run on a pair of two-out doubles before securing the final out in the ninth. Bowman (2-0) fanned a B-Mets season-high 11. He threw 80 pitches (55 strikes). Box

ST. LUCIE 6, FORT MYERS 1: Left-hander Steven Matz took a no-hit bid two outs into the

sixth inning before surrendering a bunt single to Levi Michael. Matz ultimately limited the Miracle to two hits and one walk in seven scoreless innings. He struck out six. Jake Kuebler allowed one run in two innings in relief. Cam Maron got the Mets on the board with a two-out, two-run single in the sixth. Dilson Herrera, T.J. Rivera and Aderlin Rodriguez also produced RBIs as St. Lucie eventually opened a 6-0 lead. Brandon Nimmo went 0-for-4 to lose a nine-game hitting streak. Nimmo, still hitting .370, did walk and has now reached base in all 14 games this season. MLB veteran Brandon Allen, who injured a calf in big-league camp with the Mets, played first base and went 1-for-4 with a walk. Box

GREENVILLE 4, SAVANNAH 0: Starter Robert Gsellman suffered the loss despite allowing one run in five innings with five strikeouts. The Drive scored the opening run when Kevin Mager singled home Jimmy Rider. After that 37-pitch frame, Gsellman steadied himself and retired the side in order in the fourth and fifth innings on a combined 25 pitches. Drive starter Teddy Stankiewicz, who was drafted by the Mets in the second round in 2012 but did not sign, blanked Savannah through six innings, striking out three without issuing a walk. Of the four hits the Gnats collected Thursday -- all singles -- only one left the infield. Jeff McNeil bunted for a hit twice. The Drive added three runs (two unearned) in the eighth against reliever Dawrin Frias. Shortstop Gavin Cecchini and second baseman L.J. Mazzilli committed errors in that inning. Box

NEW HAMPSHIRE 9, BINGHAMTON 4: Tyler Pill (0-2) surrendered seven runs on 10 hits in 4 2/3 innings as the B-Mets had a five-game winning streak snapped. Kevin Nolan drilled an 0-1 pitch over the left-field wall against Pill as New Hampshire took a 3-0 lead in the first. The Fisher Cats padded their lead with a sac fly by Kenny Wilson in the second. Binghamton cracked the scoreboard in the third against Fisher Cats starter Casey Lawrence. Travis Taijeron doubled, took third on a flyout and scored when Kyle Johnson singled. The Fisher Cats stretched their lead to five with another two-out rally in the third. Mike Crouse produced a run-scoring triple. Peter Mooney then made it 6-1 with a run-scoring single. In the fifth, New Hampshire chased Pill with two outs after a pair of singles and a walk. Jack Leathersich inherited the runners and walked Mooney, forcing in the Fisher Cats’ seventh run.

single in the bottom of the 10th. He belted a pitch from Tim Shibuya into right field, scoring Brandon Nimmo from second. Adam Brett Walker’s throw home from right was up the line and skipped away from catcher Tyler Grimes. On Friday, Maron broke a 3-all tie in the eighth with an RBI single en route to a 6-3 win. The Mets (5-4) have now won four in row after losing four straight. Fort Myers' Michael Gonzales launched a solo homer in the second against Michael Fulmer. The Mets tied the score in the fifth on Phillip Evans' groundout. Maron gave the Mets the lead an inning later. He smashed a 3-1 pitch from Jose Berrios over Walker's head for a triple that plated T.J. Rivera. Maron scored moments later on a wild pitch to put the Mets up, 3-1. Reliever Beck Wheeler relinquished the lead in the eighth. Wheeler retired the first two hitters, but walked Jorge Polanco and surrendered a single to Dalton Hicks. Walker then delivered a three-run homer to put the Miracle ahead, 4-3. The Mets answered in their half. Dilson Herrera and Nimmo singled to chase reliever Steven Gruver. Herrera and Nimmo both advanced a base when Brian Gilbert entered and threw a wild pitch. After Rivera struck out, Aderlin Rodriguez brought home Herrera on a groundout to tie the score. That tie held until the 10th, when Maron came through. Fulmer limited the Miracle to Gonzales’ solo homer over seven innings while striking out five. Paul Sewald worked out of jams in the ninth and 10th to earn the win. Box

SAVANNAH 4, ROME 3: Colton Plaia delivered a tiebreaking solo homer in the eighth against Rome's Richie Tate. Tim Peterson then tossed two scoreless relief innings for his first save.
