TUCSON 4, LAS VEGAS 3: A half-inning after Wilmer Flores tied the score at 3 with a two-run double, Justin Hampson surrendered the decisive run in the bottom of the seventh. Wally Backman and Zach Lutz were ejected that inning after Lutz was called out on strikes. Backman mimicked ejecting the umpire, according to the Arizona Daily Star. Flores started at first base -- only his fourth game at the position this season. Ruben Tejada went 0-for-4 and is hitting .095 in the Pacific Coast League. Box

Goeddel
April 19. The Fisher Cats hammered five homers, including four in an eight-run seventh. New Hampshire took advantage of nine walks to hand the B-Mets their most lopsided loss since April 26, 2012 -- a 16-3 defeat, also to New Hampshire. Goeddel loaded the bases on three straight walks in the third. Clint Robinson then hammered a grand slam. Following two more walks in the fifth, Ryan Schimpf laced an RBI single to end Goeddel’s night. Ryan Fraser entered and surrendered a two-run double to Brian Van Kirk and an RBI single to Jon Talley. Fisher Cats starter Marcus Stroman, a product of Patchogue-Medford High on Long Island, allowed four hits and struck out eight over seven innings. The B-Mets only highlights against Stroman came on a pair of homers -- by Allan Dykstra in the fourth and Travis Taijeron in the seventh. It was Dykstra’s 14th homer this season. In the seventh, Andy Burns led off with a solo homer against Fraser. Following a hit batter and a walk, Talley crushed a three-run homer. Adam Kolarek relieved Fraser after another walk, but could not stop the bleeding. Robinson singled and Brad Glenn launched a three-run homer. Burns capped the frame with a solo homer, his second long ball of the inning, for a 16-2 lead. Box

Fulmer
FORT MYERS 3, ST. LUCIE 0: After recovering from spring-training surgery to repair a torn meniscus and making two Gulf Coast League starts, Michael Fulmer made his Florida State League debut. Fulmer, the 44th overall pick in the 2011 draft, surrendered three first-inning runs. He ultimately completed five innings, surrendering no additional damage. St. Lucie (44-39) mustered only two hits -- a two-out single in the first by Jayce Boyd and a leadoff single in the seventh by Dustin Lawley. Angel Cuan and Chasen Bradford tossed two scoreless relief innings apiece. Box

GREENVILLE 6, SAVANNAH 4: Jake Kuebler surrendered six runs (five earned) in four innings.

Trailing by two runs in the ninth, Phillip Evans had a leadoff double and Chad Zurcher walked. But Brandon Nimmo grounded into a double play and Kyle Johnson flied out.

He loaded the bases in the fifth, but struck out Tzu-Wei Lin. Juan Gamboa led off the fourth with a walk and moved into scoring position on LJ Mazzilli's single. With two outs, Alex Sanchez hit a hard groundball that was fielded by the second baseman Cleuluis Rondon. But Rondon threw it passed first, allowing Gamboa to score from second. Jorge Rivero followed with a single that drove in Mazzilli for a 2-0 lead. In the eighth, Patrick Biondi walked and stole second -- his sixth steal in four games. Gamboa's bunt landed Biondi on third. Mazzilli then hit a long fly ball to center field that was caught on an amazing leaping grab by center fielder Manuel Margot, resulting in a sac fly. Brooklyn’s bullpen closed the door. David Wynn and Ricky Knapp combined for three scoreless innings. Shawn Teufel pitched a perfect ninth to record his second save. Box

Binghamton-record eight produced by Jorge Toca against Reading on June 25, 1999. It was Muno's first career multi-homer game. B-Mets starter Logan Verrett surrendered four runs (three earned) in the third and departed with two outs in his shortest pro outing. Jim Fuller (2-0) took over and retired all 11 Fisher Cats he faced, including a stretch of six consecutive via strikeout. Fuller retired Ryan Schimpf to start the seventh before handing off to John Church to close out the scoreless frame. The Fisher Cats took advantage of two misplays to scratch out a run in the eighth. Andy Burns reached to start the frame on a dropped third strike by Blake Forsythe and moved to second on a single. After Pedro Feliciano entered with one out, Clint Robinson bounced a potential double-play grounder to second. Muno flipped to Wilfredo Tovar for one, but the relay throw to first skipped away, allowing Burns to score. Feliciano returned for the ninth and struck out Schimpf. Jeff Walters took over with one out and fell into trouble. Brian Van Kirk singled and Jon Talley doubled. Walters bounced back to strike out Adam Loewen for the second out. With the tying run on second, Burns singled into right field. Van Kirk scored easily from third, but pinch-runner Kevin Ahrens was gunned down by Puello to end the game as Forsythe hung on after a collision. Walters earned his league-leading 22nd save. Puello’s outfield assist was his team-leading sixth. Box
