New York Mets: Clay Rapada

LAS VEGAS 7, TACOMA 5
TACOMA 3, LAS VEGAS 2: Vic Black tossed a scoreless bottom of the seventh with one strikeout to secure his second save as Las Vegas completed a 7-5 win in the resumption of Sunday's suspended game. Andrew Brown had delivered a tiebreaking two-run homer in the top half of the seventh Sunday. Noah Syndergaard started Monday's regularly scheduled game. He allowed one run on seven hits and three walks while striking out eight in 5 2/3 innings. He threw 95 pitches (61 strikes) and departed with the score tied at 1. Taylor Teagarden hit a tiebreaking solo homer in the top of the ninth against Clay Rapada, but Jeff Walters surrendered two runs in the bottom half to suffer the blown save. Kirk Nieuwenhuis remained out of the lineup a day after injuring an elbow colliding into the outfield wall on a catch. Box 1, Box 2

NEW HAMPSHIRE 5, BINGHAMTON 0: After taking over for rehabbing major leaguer Casey Janssen, Scott Copeland tossed eight scoreless innings to hand Binghamton its third consecutive loss. Binghamton threatened against Janssen in the first, but failed to

break through. Kyle Johnson opened the game by zipping Janssen’s first pitch into center for a single. Matt Reynolds also singled, but Janssen used a pair of groundouts to escape. B-Mets starter Tyler Pill stumbled in the third. Andy Fermin pulled a solo homer inside the right-field pole for a 1-0 lead. Copeland used a double play to erase a leadoff single in the second, tossed a perfect third, worked around a two-out single in the fourth and used another twin-killing to post a scoreless fifth. New Hampshire tacked on two more runs in their half of the fifth. After Brad Glenn doubled, Brian Van Kirk bounced a grounder to third and reached safely when Brian Burgamy’s throw pulled Matt Clark off first base. Following a walk to load the bases, Jon Jones beat a potential double-play throw to first as a run scored. Jon Berti brought in New Hampshire’s third run with a bunt single down the third-base line. Overall, Copeland allowed only one B-Met to reach second base. Pill (0-5) suffered his second straight hard-luck loss. He allowed three runs (one earned) on three hits over five innings. The B-Mets have scored a total of eight runs in Pill’s five starts. All three of Binghamton’s shutout losses have come in games started by Pill. Cory Vaughn collected his team-leading fifth outfield assist. Box

ST. LUCIE 5, CHARLOTTE 2: Gabriel Ynoa rebounded from three consecutive subpar outings to limit the Stone Crabs to two runs in six innings. Ynoa had been roughed up by the Crabs for seven runs in 4 2/3 innings last Tuesday. This time, Ynoa struck out the side

in the fourth, was able to strand a runner on third with less than two outs in the fifth, and pitched around a two-out single in the sixth. He struck out three and scattered six hits. The Mets only totaled five hits, but they managed to manufacture key runs. Jairo Perez doubled against Alex Colome in the second and moved to third on a wild pitch. He came home on another wild pitch by Colome. Maikis De La Cruz added a two-out single that frame to plate Cam Maron and make it 2-0. Charlotte scored a run in the second when Kes Carter tripled and Tyler Goeddel singled, but Perez would get the run back nearly on his own in the third. Perez turned a double into a hustle triple with a late burst of speed. Then, on Maron’s one-out grounder to third, Perez waited until Goeddel threw to first and took off. Perez beat first baseman Patrick Leonard’s throw to the plate to make it 3-1. Josh Sale led off the bottom of the third with another triple against Ynoa and scored on a sac fly by Andrew Toles to cut the Mets’ lead to 3-2. Reliever Paul Sewald pitched around a two-out walk in a scoreless seventh. The Mets added two insurance runs in the eighth, on Aderlin Rodriguez's single and Maron's fielder's choice. Beck Wheeler retired all six batters he faced, including striking out four straight to end the ballgame. Goeddel is the brother of Mets farmhand Erik Goeddel. Box

SAVANNAH 5, ROME 1: Savannah went 6-1 on its homestand and allowed two runs or fewer in all six wins. The Gnats (20-9) broke a 1-all tie with a four-run sixth. Stefan Sabol, Dominic Smith and Jon Leroux all walked. Sabol scored the go-ahead run on a wild pitch by reliever Tyler Brosius. Jeff Glenn then delivered an RBI single. The final two runs scored on Gavin Cecchini’s chopper under the glove of Braves third baseman Carlos Franco, who was charged with an error. The Braves had opened the scoring with an unearned run in the second. Savannah starter Kevin McGowan allowed only that run on six hits and four walks in 5 2/3 innings. Savannah tied the score at 1 in the fourth when Sabol had a leadoff homer against Brosius. McGowan departed with the score tied at 1, two outs and the bases loaded in the sixth. Akeel Morris entered and induced a fly ball to end the threat. He earned the win after logging 1 2/3 innings of scoreless relief. Cecchini’s third-inning double extended his hitting streak to eight games. The 2012 first-round pick returned to the lineup a day after getting pulled for lack of hustle. Box
