LAS VEGAS 12, COLORADO SPRINGS 8: Right-hander Jacob deGrom departed Game 1 after two innings with an apparent injury. The 51s suffered a walk-off loss in the eighth as Justin Hampson suffered the defeat. Las Vegas had loaded the bases in the final regulation inning, but Mike Baxter flied out to end the threat. Ex-Met Xavier Nady had a two-run homer against deGrom before he departed. Dustin Lawley started in left field and went 1-for-4 in his Triple-A debut. Las Vegas then posted a seven-run fourth inning in Game 2 to earn a split. Jamie Hoffmann contributed a three-run homer and Kirk Nieuwenhuis had a two-run homer in the nightcap victory. Box 1, Box 2

BINGHAMTON 7, BOWIE 4: Starter Mark Cohoon's outing ended after two scoreless innings because of a rain delay. Box

ST. LUCIE 2, CHARLOTTE 1 (10 innings): Rylan Sandoval's sacrifice fly scored Cam Maron in the bottom of the 10th for the walk-off win. Starter Hansel Robles allowed one run on three hits and three walks in eight innings. Randy Fontanez (9-7) earned the win with two no-hit relief innings. St. Lucie remains mathematically alive for a postseason berth with four games remaining, but faces near-impossible odds because the two teams ahead of the Mets in the division finish the season playing head-to-head. Box

ROME 4, SAVANNAH 1: Starter Julian Hilario (7-7) allowed three runs on nine hits and and three walks in five innings. Box

KINGSPORT 7, BLUEFIELD 6 (10 innings): Jeyckol De Leon delivered his third walk-off hit of the season, this time scoring Yeixon Ruiz in the 10th. Combined Johnson City's loss

De Leon
to Burlington, Kingsport (38-27) clinched its first postseason berth in nearly two decades. With Greeneville losing to Danville, the K-Mets also moved into first place in the Appalachian League's West Division by a half-game. The four postseason participants have been determined. The order in terms of division winners and runner-ups is unresolved. With two games remaining in the regular season, Bluefield leads Pulaski by a half-game in the East. The two division winners earn the right to host Game Nos. 2 and 3 in the opening round. Kingsport lost seven of its first nine games, but got into the playoff chase by tallying 21 wins in July.

Bluefield jumped to a 4-1 lead by having more success against Rob Whalen than arguably any Appy League team to date. A wild bottom of the seventh then got the K-Mets back into the game. Kingsport scored five runs on three hits in that inning, and benefited from three consecutive errors by the Jays. Bluefield forced extra innings thanks to Franklin Barreto's two-out, two-run double in the ninth against Ricardo Jacquez. Kingsport broke through in the 10th. After Ruiz's infield single, Jeff McNeil's line single advanced him to third. An intentional walk to the newest K-Met position player, 2013 first-round draft pick Dominic Smith, loaded the bases for De Leon, whose flare single to right scored Ruiz with the decisive run. McNeil went 4-for-6. Ruiz, the only K-Met to make the Appalachian League All-Star team, had two hits and scored twice. Smith walked twice off the bench in his K-Mets debut. Box

BROOKLYN 1, TRI-CITY 0: John Gant tossed a one-hit shutout and faced the minimum 27 batters as Brooklyn moved into first place. It marked only the fourth time in Cyclones history that a starting pitcher went nine innings. The last to do so was Hansel Robles against Hudson Valley on Sept. 7, 2012, in Game 1 of the NYPL semifinals. Gant needed 91 pitches to complete his gem. The lone run came in the fifth. Anthony Chavez singled to lead off and moved to second on Kyle Westwood's errant pickoff throw. Eris Peguero then squared to sacrifice Chavez to third, but his bunt went directly down the third-base line for a hit. With men on the corners and nobody out, Gavin Cecchini grounded into a fielder's choice, scoring Chavez and giving the Cyclones a 1-0 lead. With Aberdeen's loss to Lowell, Brooklyn has a half-game division lead with seven games remaining in the regular season. Box

GCL MARLINS 3, GCL METS 2: Starter Craig Missigman (0-4) allowed three runs in five innings. Christian Montgomery tossed three scoreless relief innings. Box

Forysthe
Binghamton's magic number to win the Eastern Division to two. Forysthe homered for the third time in his past four games. Wilfredo Tovar departed the game after sliding into second base in the third inning, prompting outfielder Alonzo Harris to play second base for the first time in more than a year. One inning later, Cory Vaughn left the game after being hit in the back of the helmet by a pitch from Devin Jones. The Binghamton Press & Sun-Bulletin reported Tovar had X-rays on a wrist, while Vaughn passed a concussion test. After Vaughn’s exit, Forsythe went from behind the plate to right field. By the fifth inning, only two of Binghamton’s eight starting position players were in their original positions. Binghamton opened the scoring in the sixth. Danny Muno singled against Jones with one out. He advanced to third base one batter later. Josh Rodriguez hit a bouncer to shortstop Niuman Romero, but his throw skipped into the outfield to place runners on the corners. Xorge Carrillo then delivered a sacrifice fly. Bowie responded a half-inning later against Darin Gorski. Josh Horton doubled, moved to third on a bunt and scored on Luis Martinez's sac fly. Gorski’s night ended after seven innings. He allowed one run.

The B-Mets retook the lead on Richard Lucas' two-out solo homer in the bottom of the seventh. Adam Kolarek held the 2-1 lead with a scoreless eighth. Closer Jeff Walters was unable to convert the save chance in the ninth. He eventually walked Buck Britton with the bases loaded to force in the tying run. With the bases still loaded, Walters retired Lew Ford to send the game into extra innings. Chasen Bradford worked around two base hits in the top of the 10th to keep the score tied, setting up Forsythe's shot against Marcel Prado. The blast provided Binghamton (80-48) its second walk-off homer this season. Joe Bonfe also beat the Baysox, on June 16. Forsythe played one game in the outfield for St. Lucie in 2012. Bradford has not allowed an earned run since his Double-A debut (15 games). Box

SAVANNAH 3, AUGUSTA 2
AUGUSTA 4, SAVANNAH 0: Savannah won the opener behind a three-run third inning. Maikis De La Cruz worked a bases-loaded walk. Cole Frenzel followed with a single as two runs scored -- the latter on a throwing error. Paul Sewald earned his sixth save with a 1-2-3 seventh. In Game 2, Wanel Mesa allowed four fourth-inning runs (three earned) after three scoreless innings by Jake Kuebler. Box 1, Box 2

KINGSPORT 6, BURLINGTON 5: Jeff Diehl had three hits and an RBI. He also scored two runs, including the game-winner in the eighth on Eris Peguero's double. Peguero had two hits. Amed Rosario had two RBIs -- one on a triple to deep center in the sixth that tied the score at 5. Jeyckol De Leon had a two-run double in the first as Kingsport grabbed a 3-2 lead. Robert Coles (3-1) picked up the win in relief, working the final two innings while holding Burlington scoreless. He recorded the final out on a grounder with the potential tying run at second base. Victor Cruzado was in the lineup for Kingsport for the first time since Aug. 6. De Leon's two-run double in the first gave him the team lead in RBIs, at 28. Box

BROOKLYN 3, STATEN ISLAND 2
STATEN ISLAND 5, BROOKLYN 2: Akeel Morris dominated his first start of the season to lead the Cyclones to a Game 1 victory. Morris tossed five scoreless innings. He lowered his ERA to 0.47. Through 38 1/3 innings, Morris has struck out 52 and allowed four runs (two earned). Gavin Cecchini's hitting streak was snapped at 16 games, one shy of matching Lucas Duda's Cyclones record. In Game 2, Tomas Nido gave the Cyclones a 2-0 lead in the second inning on a two-run double. Starter Kevin McGowan then allowed three third-inning runs. Box 1, Box 2

GCL CARDINALS 7, GCL METS 1: Andrew Church surrendered six runs (five earned) on 12 hits and a walk in 5 2/3 innings. Box

Syndergaard dominanted the Rock Cats. He scattered three hits over five innings while earning his sixth B-Mets win. He faced no more than four batters in any inning and matched a career high with 10 strikeouts. In the sixth, Ryan Fraser entered and allowed a single and a walk with one out as New Britain put together its biggest threat of the night. Fraser escaped the jam by forcing Miguel Sano and Reynaldo Rodriguez to fly out. He followed with a scoreless seventh before handing the ball to Chasen Bradford. Bradford retired all three batters he faced, requiring only 10 pitches. Jeff Walters slammed the door with a perfect ninth to earn his 35th save. Box

The K-Mets took control in the second inning, plating seven runs on seven hits while sending 13 men to the plate. Seven straight batters reached safely with two outs, a barrage that chased Bristol starter Robinson Leyer after 1 2/3 innings. In his first appearance since a promotion from the Gulf Coast League, Brandon Welch lasted six innings and allowed four runs on six hits. Welch finished strongly, retiring the side in order in his last three innings. Edioglis Villasmil and Tyler Bashlor combined for three innings of scoreless relief. Kingsport (31-23) gained a game on division-leading Greeneville. The K-Mets now trail the Astros affiliate by 1.5 games in the West. The top two games in the Appalachian League make the playoffs. Kingsport is up 2.5 games for second place with 23 games remaining. Box

BROOKLYN 6, VERMONT 4: James Roche went 2-for-4 with two RBIs while homering for the second straight game. After the Lake Monsters capitalized on a botched groundball by LJ Mazzilli to take an early 1-0 lead, Roche picked up his second baseman by connecting on a solo shot. Brooklyn then took the lead with a three-run third. Anthony Chavez singled and Patrick Biondi and Gavin Cecchini walked to load the bases for Mazzilli. He also walked, forcing in the tiebreaking run. Jared King then produced his first RBI since returning to the lineup following an oblique issue, on a sacrifice fly. Roche added an RBI single. Cyclones starter John Gant stumbled in the sixth as the Lake Monsters cut Brooklyn's lead to 5-4. Gant ultimately allowed four runs (three earned) on eight hits while striking out seven. Gant added to his New York-Penn League-leading strikeout total (68). Later, reliever Johnny Magliozzi inherited in a tough spot, with the tying run at second base and go-ahead run at first in the eighth. He retired the next three batters to escape. Magliozzi also handled the ninth to record his fifth save. Cecchini extended his hitting streak to 14 games. The Cyclones' record is 17, by Lucas Duda in 2007. Box

GCL NATIONALS 5, GCL METS 2: Waldo Rodriguez surrendered four runs, none earned, in the seventh as the Nats overcame a 2-1 deficit. Second basmean Branden Kaupe had two errors. Starter Gaby Almonte allowed one run in 5 1/3 innings. Box

The Flying Squirrels answered with another run against Syndergaard in the second, on opposing pitcher Craig Westcott's RBI single.

The B-Mets' Darrell Ceciliani extended his hitting streak to 11 games and plated Xorge Carrillo with a single to make it 2-2 in the second. Syndergaard again got into trouble in the third.

Adam Duvall blasted a fifth-inning shot to tie the score at 3. After Richmond took the 6-3 lead, Puello's sacrifice fly and another Hughes RBI single cut the deficit to one run, but the B-Mets stranded the tying run at second base.

INDIANAPOLIS 6, BUFFALO 0: Indianapolis opened a four-run second inning against Jeurys Familia with four consecutive hits. The inning included a wild pitch and two-run single by Chase d'Arnaud. An inning later, Brandon Boggs ripped a one-out double off Familia, leading to a run that made it 5-0. Jeff Stevens replaced Familia for the fourth. Indians starter Jeff Locke allowed four hits over seven scoreless innings. Bisons manager Wally Backman joined Familia in the clubhouse prematurely. Backman was ejected in the fourth inning. Reliever Pedro Beato did toss two scoreless innings, allowing one hit while striking out four. Rehabbing Mike Baxter and recently demoted Mike Nickeas each notched a double for the Herd, although Buffalo mustered only five hits. Baxter went 1-for-4 and played a full game in left field. He is hitting .375 during the Triple-A portion of his rehab assignment. Lucas Duda went 0-for-4 and is now 1-for-12 since joining Buffalo. Box

PORTLAND 5, BINGHAMTON 1: Portland pounced on B-Mets starter Greg Peavey as the game's first four batters reached safely. Jackie Bradley walked and Jeremy Hazelbaker gave Portland the early lead with a two-run homer. Marquez Smith followed with a double and scored when Reynaldo Rodriguez doubled. Binghamton responded against Portland starter Jeremy Kehrt in the third. Wilfredo Tovar doubled, took third on Juan Lagares' single and scored when Eric Campbell grounded out. Peavey settled down after allowing an unearned run in the second. The righty retired 14 of the final 15 batters he faced and completed six innings. Portland scratched out its final run against him in the fifth. Hazelbaker reached on a bunt single, stole second and third and scored on Smith’s second sacrifice fly. Kehrt ran into trouble in the sixth. His night ended after issuing a pair of two-out walks. Michael Olmsted entered and induced Tovar to bounce into a fielder’s choice to end the inning. Peavey (4-7) allowed five runs (four earned) on five hits. He struck out four and gave way to Armando Rodriguez in the seventh. Rodriguez allowed two hits and struck out four over two scoreless frames. Adam Kolarek made his Double-A debut in the ninth, striking out two in a perfect inning. Box

ST. LUCIE 8, LAKELAND 3: Aderlin Rodriguez went 2-for-4 with four RBIs, including a bases-clearing double that gave the Mets a 3-2 lead in the fourth. Robbie Shields then doubled to plate Rodriguez and open a two-run lead. The Mets pulled away with a four-run fifth. Cory Vaughn singled to score T.J. Rivera, and Richard Lucas doubled to score Danny Muno and Vaughn for a 7-2 advantage. Rodriguez followed with an RBI single.

ROME 9, SAVANNAH 8: Randy Fontanez and Chasen Bradford combined to allow six runs in the seventh as the Gnats squandered a 7-3 lead. Dustin Lawley, Gregory Pron and Cole Frenzel drove in two runs apiece in the loss. Box

KINGSPORT 9, BRISTOL 5: 2012 first-round pick Gavin Cecchini belted a grand slam for his first professional homer, opening a 6-1 lead. The two-out rally in the fifth began as Bradley Marquez reached on a fielding error by Bristol shortstop Nick Basto. A single by Eris Peguero and a walk to Maikis De La Cruz loaded the bases. Cecchini and Sox hurler Tyler Kibby then battled to a full count before Cecchini -- batting cleanup for the first time this season -- cranked Kibby's offering over the left-center wall. Kingsport starter Corey Oswalt put together the deepest outing by a K-Met this season. Oswalt went 7 2/3 innings, allowing three runs on nine hits and two walks. Bristol touched up reliever Christian Chivilli for two runs and had the potential tying run at the plate when Chivilli induced Basto into a game-ending flyout. Marquez made his first start in more than a month, after spending time on the DL with a leg injury. He won't be with the team much longer. Marquez soon reports to Lubbock, where he is a wide receiver on Texas Tech's football team. He went 2-for-4, reached on an error and scored a run while batting leadoff. Box

MAHONING VALLEY 3, BROOKLYN 2: David Wynn surrendered a two-out, two-run homer in the eighth to give the Scrappers the come-from-behind win. After being shut out Friday, Brooklyn's bats continued to struggle. The Cyclones did not collect a hit after the fourth inning. Brandon Nimmo opened the game with a single and scored on Kevin Plawecki's two-out double. The lead was short-lived. Mahoning Valley drew even in the second. Brooklyn starter Hansel Robles surrendered a leadoff double to Richard Stock. Logan Vick's single then put runners on the corners with none out. After a strikeout, Andrew Campbell singled to even the score. In the third, Eudy Pina had a leadoff single and moved into scoring position on a groundout by Phillip Evans. Jayce Boyd's two-out single scored Pina to put Brooklyn in front, 2-1. Robles departed after five innings, having allowed one run on five hits while striking out seven. John Mincone entered and found himself in a jam. Joseph Wendle and Joe Sever started the sixth with singles, but the southpaw worked his way out of trouble. Mincone added a spotless seventh to extend his scoreless streak to 17 1/3 innings dating to June 22. In the eighth, the Scrappers broke through. Wynn allowed a walk and three hits, including the two-run homer by Sever. Box

ALTOONA 3, BINGHAMTON 2: The Curve scored two runs against Adrian Rosario in the bottom of the ninth as Binghamton's four-game winning streak ended. Trying to protect a one-run lead, Rosario consecutively walked Matt Curry and Jarek Cunningham with one out. Stefan Welch then delivered a game-tying pinch-hit single. Brock Holt ended the game with a walk-off single, which provided Altoona its only lead of the three-game series. In the first nning, Binghamton's Sean Kazmar doubled against starter Phil Irwin and advanced to third on Eric Campbell's single. Allan Dykstra's sac fly opened the scoring. The Curve threatened to tie the score in the third, but were denied by center fielder Juan Lagares. With two outs and two aboard, Oscar Tejeda singled off B-Mets starter Darin Gorski. Irwin tried to score from second, but was gunned down by Lagares. The outfield assist, Lagares’ league-lead-tying 13th, preserved the 1-0 lead. Gorski threw 31 pitches in the fourth, with Cunningham wearing out Gorski in an 11-pitch at-bat. That set the stage for Robbie Grossman, who homered in the fifth to tie the score. Gorski rebounded to post a perfect sixth that ended his day. He allowed one run on four hits in a no-decision. Altoona reliever Kris Harvey tossed a perfect seventh before the B-Mets broke the tie in the eighth. Campbell singled and Harvey loaded the bases with consecutive walks. Dustin Martin then dumped an RBI single into left. Binghamton subsequently stranded the bases loaded, though, with Francisco Pena and Wilfredo Tovar retired in the infield. Brad Holt tossed two scoreless innings in relief of Gorski. He stood to be the winner until Rosario (1-2) suffered his second blown save. Box

Kingsport batters launched four homers -- by Eris Peguero, Jeyckol De Leon, Maikis De La Cruz and Jonathan Leroux. De La Cruz went 4-for-4. Box

JAMESTOWN 5, BROOKLYN 2: The Cyclones squandered a late one-run lead and were swept in the three-game series. With one out in the eighth and Brooklyn leading 2-1, Cyclones reliever Matt Bowman hit Juancito Martinez, who then stole second. Three consecutive Jamestown hits plated two runs. Tim Peterson surrendered a pair of ninth-inning runs. Brooklyn starter Hansel Robles had retired Yefri Perez on a flyout to center to begin the game. After that, the ball did not leave the infield against Robles through 4 1/3 innings. Robles walked Jesus Solorzano with two outs in the second before retiring the next eight batters. He held the Jammers hitless until a one-out single in the fifth by Solorzano. In the sixth, Jamestown scored the game's opening run, on Pedro Mendoza's sacrifice fly. The run ended Robles' outing. He went 5 1/3 innings, allowing the one earned run on three hits with one walk and seven strikeouts. In the bottom half of the sixth, Brooklyn took the lead, 2-1. Jamestown reliever Brian Ellington walked Juan Gamboa. Brandon Nimmo then singled. Ellington threw a wild pitch with Phillip Evans batting and both runners advanced. Evans' single then plated both Cyclones. Box

BUFFALO 9, LOUISVILLE 4: On the day he officially became one of three Bisons selections to the Triple-A All-Star Game, which Buffalo will host July 11, Valentino Pascucci broke out of a funk in a big way. Pascucci went 3-for-3 with three doubles, five RBIs and a walk as the Bisons snapped a seven-game losing streak. Matt Harvey and closer Fernando Cabrera will join Pascucci as All-Stars. On Wednesday, Josh Satin evened the score at 3 in the third with a single that plated Jordany Valdespin, who had tripled. Rob Johnson then gave Buffalo the lead an inning later with a solo homer. In the fifth, Pascucci doubled to drive in Satin and increase the lead to 5-3. Pascucci's three-run double in the sixth gave Buffalo a six-run cushion. "I've been trying lately to get out of my struggles," said Pascucci, who had been 1-for-22 in his previous six games. "It felt good to get hits, and hit them over the fielder instead of right at them," Pascucci said. Left-hander Garrett Olson tossed 6 1/3 innings and allowed three runs on seven hits. Olson notched his first win since June 7. Box

BOWIE 7, BINGHAMTON 3: Bowie wasted little time grabbing the lead, scoring three runs in the first against starter Gonzalez Germen. Antoan Richardson led off with a single, stole second and scored on a double by Josh Barfield, the first of his three RBIs. Two batters later, Manny Machado launched his second homer of the series. After being kept in check by starter Tim Bascom for two innings, the B-Mets produced a two-out rally in the third. Juan Lagares singled, advanced on a walk and scored on Jefry Marte’s single. Wilmer Flores cut the deficit to one by blasting a solo homer, his first long ball in Double-A, in the fourth inning. Germen ultimately allowed four runs on six hits while striking out three. Jeff Stevens took over in the sixth and posted two perfect frames. Trailing by two, the B-Mets threatened in the seventh against reliever Chris Petrini. Lagares walked and Reese Havens supplied a two-out single, but the rally stalled when Marte bounced back to the mound to start an inning-ending double play. After Bowie extended the lead with three runs against Erik Turgeon, Petrini closed things out. His only blemish was an RBI single by Lagares in the ninth. Bascom (4-5) snapped a six-game winless streak, earning his first victory since May 19. Germen (4-5) watched his three-game winning streak end. Box

DAYTONA 12, ST. LUCIE 1: The Cubs pounded out 17 hits and pulled away with a six-run fifth. Blake Forsythe went 2-for-4 with an RBI double in the eighth inning to account for the lone run. Rylan Sandoval went 2-for-5 and scored on Forsythe's hit. Yohan Almonte allowed a season-high 11 runs and 12 hits in five innings with one walk and one strikeout. Matt Szczur hit a grand slam off Almonte in the fifth to give the Cubs an 11-0 lead. Taylor Whitenton pitched two innings and gave up one run and four hits and recorded one strikeout. Adam Kolarek tossed a pair of scoreless innings. Box

CHARLESTON 8, SAVANNAH 5: Randy Fontanez was charged with three unearned runs in the bottom of the eighth as Charleston completed a comeback. Charleston loaded the bases on a pair of singles and a walk with none out in the frame before left fielder Dustin Lawley and shortstop Ismael Tijerina committed errors. Cam Maron's first-inning homer had staked Savannah to an early lead. Aderlin Rodriguez's three-run shot in the sixth put the Gnats ahead, 5-2. Starter Logan Verrett was charged with five runs in 6 2/3 innings. Box

DANVILLE 8, KINGSPORT 1: Starter Persio Reyes allowed five runs on seven hits and three walks in 4 2/3 innings. Eris Peguero went 3-for-4 with a double and drove in the lone K-Mets run in the loss. Box

Short hops

• Right-hander Collin McHugh, compared by scouts to Dillon Gee, had a misleading line in his Triple-A debut Monday. After two walks and a wild pitch in the first inning led to a Norfolk run on a sacrifice fly by veteran Miguel Tejada, McHugh put up zeroes until the sixth inning. That’s when McHugh -- an 18th-round pick in 2008 out of Berry College in Georgia -- allowed a pair of singles and a walk to open the frame and departed with Buffalo leading, 3-1. Left-hander Josh Edgin entered and allow all three inherited runners to score, so McHugh was charged with four runs on five hits and four walks in five-plus innings in his International League debut.

McHugh, who turned 25 on Tuesday, is only the second former Berry College pitcher to reach Triple-A. The other: right-hander Chuck Smith, who actually did so in 2006 with Norfolk, when the Tides were affiliated with the Mets organization.

• Reliever Jeff Stevens, a former Cub, was demoted to Binghamton to clear a Triple-A roster spot for McHugh.

• St. Lucie third baseman Wilmer Flores earned MVP honors at Saturday’s Florida State League All-Star Game. Flores went 3-for-4 with three RBIs and a walk in a 6-3 South victory. The Mets had eight players appear in the game, including late addition Richard Lucas (0-for-3) to man first base. The others: outfielder Cory Vaughn (1-for-2), catcher Blake Forsythe (1-for-2), shortstop Wilfredo Tovar (0-for-2), left-hander Chase Huchingson (0 ER, 1 IP) , right-hander Cory Mazzoni (1 ER, 1 IP) and left-hander Adam Kolarek (0 ER, 1 IP).

• Mazzoni, the organization’s second-round pick in 2011 from NC State, is expected to be promoted to Double-A Binghamton today. He will be part of a six-man B-Mets rotation. Mazzoni went 5-1 with a 3.25 ERA in 12 starts with St. Lucie, allowing 64 hits and 16 walks while striking out 48 in 63 2/3 innings.

• Kingsport, including first-round pick Gavin Cecchini, a high school shortstop from Louisiana, opened its season Tuesday night. The full roster:

Pitchers: Martires Arias, Alberto Baldonado, Shane Bay, Matt Budgell, Christian Chivilli, Miller Diaz, Zachary Dotson, Ramon Estevez, John Gant, Robert Gsellman, Steven Matz, Christian Montgomery, Akeel Morris, Flabio Ortega, Andres Perez, Luis Rengel, Persio Reyes, Carlos Valdez, Edioglis Villasmil.

Catchers: Tyler Carpenter, Jeyckol Deleon, Alex Machillanda, Tomas Nido.

Infielders: Cecchini, Anthony Chavez, Jeffrey Diehl, Branden Kaupe, Pedro Perez, Yeixon Ruiz, Kevin Wiejgerste.

Outfielders: Michael Bernal, Maikis De La Cruz, Bradley Marquez, Eris Peguero, Joe Tuschak.

Cecchini went 0-for-3 with two walks, a caught stealing, run scored and throwing error in his pro debut.

• Purdue catcher Kevin Plawecki, a supplemental first-round pick (35th overall), went 0-for-4, was hit by a pitch and had a passed ball Tuesday for Brooklyn in his pro debut.

• Prep right-hander Andrew Massie, the organization’s 24th-round pick, signed a contract Saturday to join the Mets, the Dyersburg (S.C.) State Gazette reported. Fourteenth-round pick Chris Flexen, a high school right-hander from California, reportedly is close to signing as well.

• Buffalo outfielder Matt Tuiasosopo snapped an 0-for-30 skid Saturday.

Jenrry Mejia made his third relief appearance since converting from starting Tuesday. He tossed two scoreless innings. Mejia rebounded from a woeful appearance Sunday, in which four of five batters reached -- via two hits, plus a walk and a hit batter. He has yet to enter mid-inning or inherit runners during a two-week program to ready him for major league consideration.

• With Tuesday’s loss, St. Lucie owns a 48-19 record with one game remaining in its first half. The club narrowly will fall shy of becoming the third team in Florida State League history to win 50 games in a half. The lone teams to accomplish the feat:
