LAS VEGAS 8, TACOMA 6: Zach Lutz, playing in his first game since injuring an oblique on May 26, hit a two-out, walk-off three-run homer in the ninth to lift Vegas. Newly demoted Robert Carson had suffered a blown save in the top half of the inning, surrendering a three-run single with Tacoma down to its last strike as the Rainiers took a 6-4 lead. Ike Davis went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts and two walks, including a base on balls ahead of Lutz's game-ending homer. Mike Baxter went 2-for-4. Wilmer Flores went 3-for-5, including an RBI single in the ninth. The three runs charged to Carson were unearned because of a throwing error by shortstop Brandon Hicks earlier in the ninth. Box

BINGHAMTON 6, TRENTON 5: Danny Muno's three-run homer highlifted a four-run second inning against Mikey O'Brien. Cesar Puello followed with a single, moved to second on a

botched pickoff and scored when Allan Dykstra singled off the glove of shortstop Carmen Angelini. Erik Goeddel (6-2) surrendered two runs in the bottom half of the frame, but no other damage while working six innings and striking out a season-high eight. With two outs in the sixth, Goeddel issued a walk and surrendered a single. He capped his night, though, by striking out Kevin Mahoney to preserve a 4-2 lead. Binghamton tacked on a pair of runs in the eighth against reliever Danny Burawa. Left fielder Ramon Flores dropped a fly ball from Richard Lucas and Blake Forsythe walked. Wilfredo Tovar then laced a two-run single. B-Mets reliever Chase Huchingson allowed three straight to reach with two outs in the eighth. Jose Pirela cut Binghamton’s lead to three with an RBI single. Jack Leathersich entered with two runners on and surrendered a single to Flores. Neil Medchill attempted to score from second on the play, but was thrown out by left fielder Joe Bonfe. Medchill barreled Forsythe at the plate, but the catcher held on to the ball to end the inning. Jeff Walters pitched the ninth and surrendered a two-run homer to Kyle Roller, trimming the lead to one. Walters rebounded to strike out Angelini and secure his league-leading 16th save. Puello left the game after getting thrown out at second base in the seventh. He walked off under his own power. Josh Rodriguez extended his hitting streak to 22 games with a first-inning single. The B-Mets are undefeated in the last nine games Goeddel has started. Binghamton (39-25) has won 21 of it last 28. Box

the B-Mets on the board in the second inning by blasting his second homer this season. The long ball extended Puello's hitting streak to 14 games, the longest active streak in Double-A.

He matched a season-high with eight strikeouts and allowed two baserunners, on a walk and single. His fortunes changed in the seventh. Jose Pirela worked a nine-pitch walk. J.R. Murphy followed by lining a single. With runners on second and third, Slade Heathcott bounced a two-run, go-ahead single up the middle that ended Montero’s night. Josh Edgin entered and issued a two-out walk to Neil Medchill. The southpaw paid for prolonging the inning when Ali Castillo pulled a two-run triple down the first-base line. Trenton added another run off Edgin on an RBI single from Heathcott in the eighth. Thunder reliever Josh Romanski (2-0) struck out four over three perfect innings and Danny Burawa allowed only one runner in two scoreless frames to collect his first save.
