LAS VEGAS 5, SALT LAKE 3: Kevin Plawecki, who was dealing with vertigo, went 2-for-4 with an RBI in his first game since July 17. John Lannan made his Triple-A season debut after six tune-up starts with St. Lucie. Lannan tossed six scoreless innings. He previously had taken a leave of absence for seven weeks for a "personal issue." The 51s built a 5-0 lead after three innings. Matt Reynolds, Josh Satin and Plawecki had RBI singles in a three-run first. Box

Two batters later, Andy Burns singled to plate Berti for the game's opening run. With two outs, Sean Ochinko homered for a 3-0 lead. In the fifth, Jorge Flores hit a one-out single against Matz and moved to third on a throwing error by first baseman Jayce Boyd. Berti grounded out to score the runner and extend New Hampshire's advantage to four runs. The B-Mets finally broke through in the bottom half. Back-to-back singles by Xorge Carrillo and Rylan Sandoval placed two on with nobody out. Carrillo was forced out at third base on Kyle Johnson's fielder’s choice. Brandon Nimmo then walked to load the bases and T.J. Rivera delivered a sacrifice fly. Matz (4-2) allowed five runs (four earned) on a career-high 10 hits in 5 1/3 innings. He struck out four.

ST. LUCIE 7, DUNEDIN 6 (12 innings): St. Lucie snapped an eight-game losing streak in dramatic fashion. The Mets scored two runs in the bottom of the ninth against Arik Sikula, the Florida State League’s saves leader. Jeff McNeil’s run-scoring groundout made it 6-5, and Wilfredo Tovar singled home Gilbert Gomez with two outs to send the game to extra innings. In the 12th, Gavin Cecchini led off with an infield single and advanced to second on shortstop Emilio Guerrero’s wild throw to first base. Albert Cordero then singled softly into left-center, plating Cecchini with the game-winning run. Cecchini and Cordero each went 3-for-6.

Play resumes Wednesday at 5:35 p.m. A seven-inning contest will follow the completion of the suspended nine-inning game. Against New Hampshire starter Matt Boyd, Kyle Johnson led off the bottom of the first with a single. Matt Reynolds worked a one-out walk. Plawecki then came to the plate and smacked a two-run double. Plawecki moved to third on an error by second baseman Jon Berti. He scored on Cory Vaughn's single for a 3-0 lead. The hot hitting continued in the second inning. Johnson and Reynolds each worked two-out walks. Plawecki then belted a three-run homer. That brought Jayce Boyd to the plate in pouring rain. With a full count to Boyd, the game was suspended. Matt Bowman started for Binghamton and allowed one hit in two scoreless frames. Plawecki’s five RBIs are already the most by a B-Met in a game this season. He has 27 RBIs in May. Box

BREVARD COUNTY 2, ST. LUCIE 1: St. Lucie's ninth-inning rally fell short on a night 2011

Nimmo
first-round pick Brandon Nimmo suffered what the Mets labeled a sprained left ankle. The center fielder hustled to cut off a double by Nathan Orf in right-center in the third inning and came up hobbling. He managed to get the throw into the infield and continued to jump on one leg to the warning track. Nimmo stretched out his leg near the track and did some light jogging and sprints to test himself. He was removed from the game, but managed to walk off the field under his own power. Jorge Lopez shut down the Mets through eight innings, allowing two hits and two walks. In the ninth, Dilson Herrera led off with a single, advanced to second on passed ball. Gilbert Gomez , who replaced Nimmo, then singled to put runners on the corners. Kevin Shackelford entered and coaxed a run-scoring groundout from T.J. Rivera. He then struck out Jairo Perez and Cam Maron to end the game. The Manatees mustered five hits, but one was a leadoff homer from Jose Sermo against Michael Fulmer in the third. The Manatees loaded the bases with no outs that inning and scored another run on a fielder's choice by Alfredo Rodriguez. Fulmer got a strikeout and double play to stop the bleeding. Fulmer walked four and hit two batters in his five-inning appearance. Hunter Carnevale contributed two scoreless relief innings. Paul Sewald tossed a perfect eighth. Gomez finished with two of the Mets' four hits. Box

SAVANNAH at AUGUSTA (ppd.): The game was postponed due to unplayable field conditions after the night’s rainy weather. The game will be made up as part of a doubleheader Wednesday in Augusta.

pitch that moved Tovar into scoring position, Brian Burgamy produced an RBI single for a 2-0 lead. Plawecki capped the inning's scoring by singling to right. Burgamy raced home from second, and needed an acrobatic headfirst dive to avoid a tag. B-Mets starter Rainy Lara's scoreless effort ended in the fourth on Ryan Schimpf's solo homer. Lara then retired seven of the next eight batters. Taijeron struck again for the B-Mets in the sixth. With two outs and Jayce Boyd at first, Taijeron smoked a 1-2 pitch from reliever John Anderson off the top of the left-field fence for his second double of the game. Boyd scored from first to give the B-Mets a 4-1 advantage. Schimpf's second solo homer of the game pulled New Hampshire within 4-2 in the sixth. A half-inning later, Binghamton opened a four-run lead. Anderson bounced a pickoff throw to first, prompting Darrell Ceciliani to scamper to second. With the ball still loose, Ceciliani tried for third. Right fielder Matt Newman’s throw hit Ceciliani, enabling him to race home. Cory Vaughn and Plawecki followed by posting back-to-back two-out doubles. Lara was chased from the game in the seventh. With runners at the corners, Peter Mooney stroked an RBI double. Reliever John Church entered and surrendered a run-producing infield single to Jon Berti. Kenny Wilson followed with an RBI groundout, cutting Binghamton’s lead to 6-5. Church intentionally walked Schimpf, then retired A.J. Jimenez. Church added a perfect eighth. Cody Satterwhite struck out two in a 1-2-3 ninth to earn his first save in affiliated baseball since July 23, 2011, when he was a Gulf Coast League Tiger. Lara (4-1) matched a season high with seven strikeouts over 6 1/3 innings. Box

runs to break a 2-all tie. Flying Tigers second baseman Curt Powell booted a ball with one out in the eighth that allowed Maikis De La Cruz to reach safely. Dilson Herrera followed with a double to place two in scoring position. Lakeland intentionally walked Brandon Nimmo to load the bases, but the plan backfired when Florida State League RBI leader T.J. Rivera singled to plate De La Cruz and put the Mets up 3-2. Jairo Perez then drew a bases-loaded walk and Cam Maron lined his third single of the game to plate another run and make it 5-2. Gilbert Gomez capped the frame's scoring on a sac fly. Koch got one out in the bottom of the eighth before surrendering a single and departing. Randy Fontanez recorded the final five outs. The Mets had taken a 1-0 lead in the third when Herrera got caught in a rundown but kept himself alive long enough to allow De La Cruz to score from third. Lakeland made it 1-1 in the fourth when Chad Wright tripled and scored on a wild pitch. James Robbins gave the Flying Tigers a brief lead when he opened the fifth with a homer. The Mets tied the score in the sixth when Herrera doubled and reached home on Perez's two-out single. Herrera went 3-for-5. Maron went 3-for-4. Box

CHARLESTON 3, SAVANNAH 1: The Gnats (28-13) had runners on base in each inning, but finished 0-for-15 with runners in scoring position and left 13 men on base. The RiverDogs scored a pair of unearned runs in the first against starter Robert Gsellman, in his return from the disabled list after a three-week absence. Shortstop Gavin Cecchini had a game-opening fielding error. Aaron Judge and Miguel Andujar collected RBI singles later in the frame. Charleston added a run in the fifth against reliever John Mincone, on Michael O’Neill's RBI single. The Gnats scored their lone run in the ninth. Champ Stuart began the inning by beating out an infield single with a dive into first. He advanced to second on Cecchini’s single and scored on Stefan Sabol’s infield tapper. Stuart, in his second game as a Gnat, finished 2-for-5 with a stolen base. L.J. Mazzilli was 3-for-5 to lift his season average to .250. Box

Jon Berti, playing his fourth career game in the outfield, reached up on the run, but had the drive kick off his glove and rattle off the fence. Three runs scored on Burgamy’s double, giving the B-Mets the lead. Kevin Plawecki tacked on an insurance run with an RBI single. Staked to a 4-0 lead, B-Mets starter Matt Bowman surrendered six runs in the third -- all unearned. Matt Clark booted Peter Mooney’s groundball at first to start the frame. Jon Berti took his place on a fielder’s choice and came home with New Hampshire’s first run when Kenny Wilson tripled off the left-center wall. Bowman then hit A.J. Jimenez, uncorked a wild pitch that allowed Wilson to scamper home and loaded the bases on back-to-back two-out walks. Andy Fermin cashed in on Bowman’s wildness with his first career grand slam, giving New Hampshire a 6-4 lead. Bowman retired 10 of the final 11 batters he faced after Fermin’s homer and exited after six innings. After tossing a perfect seventh and benefiting from Binghamton’s four-run eighth, Jon Velasquez (2-2) returned for the bottom half and teamed with Adam Kolarek to post a scoreless inning. Chasen Bradford worked around a two-out single in a scoreless ninth to earn his eighth save. Bowman struck out a career-high 12 -- the most by a B-Mets pitcher in one game since at least 2007.

Brandon Nimmo tripled for the second straight game in the third inning and came home on T.J. Rivera’s groundout. Rivera now leads the Florida State League with 34 RBIs. In the fifth, Phillip Evans and Cole Frenzel hit back-to-back sacrifice flies, plating Maron and Gomez, to increase the lead to five runs. James Robbins got the Flying Tigers on the board with a solo homer against Cessa in the fifth. Jairo Perez got the run back for the Mets in the eighth with his fifth homer, making it 6-1. Ryan Fraser retired the side in order in the bottom of the eighth and got the first batter out in the ninth, but the Flying Tigers wouldn’t go quietly. Evans committed a throwing error that would have been the second out of the ninth. Instead, the Tyler Hanover reached. The Flying Tigers laced four consecutive singles, the last by Jared Reaves, to plate three runs and make it 6-4. With the tying run on first and one out, Fraser buckled down to strike out Dixon Machado and Chad Wright looking to end the game. Gomez went 3-for-4 with two doubles. Maron and Dilson Herrera had two hits apiece. In a rehab appearance, Gonzalez Germen (virus) pitched a scoreless seventh. Box

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.

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.

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

With two speedy runners aboard and one out in the bottom half, New Hampshire shortstop Andy Burns answered with a two-run double. The B-Mets chased New Hampshire starter Matt Boyd in the fourth. Wilfredo Tovar doubled and Matt Reynolds ended the lefty’s day with a single that placed runners at the corners. However, Richard Bleier entered and induced Kevin Plawecki to line into a double play to end the threat. New Hampshire grabbed the lead for the first time with a pair of runs in the fifth. Jon Berti had a run-scoring double to the right-field alley and advanced to third on the play. He came home with the go-ahead run on Burns' sac fly. Trailing by one, Binghamton re-tied the score in the sixth on Jayce Boyd's solo homer -- his first Double-A long ball. The tie did not last for long. Mike McDade greeted Hansel Robles with a leadoff double in the bottom half. Two batters later, Michael Crouse also doubled, plating McDade with the go-ahead run and ending Robles’ night. New Hampshire tacked on another run in the seventh against reliever Cody Satterwhite. Robles (1-1) allowed five runs on seven hits over 5 1/3 innings in his first loss as a B-Met. Clark’s homer snapped a five-game homerless drought for the B-Mets. Satterwhite had his season-opening scoreless streak snapped at 17 2/3 innings.

The Crabs then piled on three more runs on three hits, including an RBI triple by Tyler Goeddel, in the eighth. Goeddel scored on his own triple when Evans could not handle the relay throw from the outfield, making it 9-4. Reliever Jake Kuebler (1-1) allowed four runs (two earned) in two innings and suffered the loss. The Crabs scored all three of their eighth-inning runs against Julian Hilario. Starter Steven Matz tossed five innings in a no-decision. He allowed two runs on five hits and four walks and struck out two. The Mets had taken a 2-1 lead in the third on a solo homer by Jairo Perez, his third long ball of the road trip and fourth of the season. In the fifth, Maikis De La Cruz blasted his third homer of the season to put the Mets up 3-2. The Crabs tied the score against Kuebler in the sixth on Andrew Toles’ RBI single. They took the lead on a bunt by Hector Guevara that brought home Marty Gantt.

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.

reach against Lara with a single to open the fourth, but he was erased when Lara picked him off. Ryan Schimpf followed with a two-out shot off the right-field wall, but was gunned down by Cory Vaughn trying to stretch the hit into a double. The B-Mets broke the game open in the seventh against the Fisher Cats bullpen. Clark greeted reliever Tony Davis with a leadoff homer in the seventh. After a pair of walks, Xorge Carrillo produced an RBI single, Wilfredo Tovar had a sac fly and Darrell Ceciliani capped the inning with a run-scoring single. After surrendering two hits in the fourth, Lara retired seven straight. Jon Berti reached on an infield single in the seventh, but was left on second when Lara (2-0) induced a pair of flyouts. Burgamy struck again in the eighth, against Wil Browning. The third baseman launched his third homer of the series. Cody Satterwhite and Chasen Bradford each tossed an inning of scoreless relief. Lara allowed three hits, struck out three and issued no walks. Burgamy’s two-homer night was the first by a B-Met since Tovar went deep twice against Altoona on Aug. 7, 2013. Binghamton’s 6-2 start is its best since opening the 2006 season 7-1. Ceciliani extended his season-opening hitting streak to six games with an RBI single in the eighth. Box

ST. LUCIE 6, FORT MYERS 3: Cam Maron broke a 3-all tie with one out in the eighth when he belted a 3-1 pitch from Matt Tomshaw into center field to score Aderlin Rodriguez from second base. The Mets added a pair of insurance runs later in the frame. Levi Michael’s throw home from second was wild and Maron scored. Maikis De La Cruz then hit a sac fly to plate Eudy Pina. The Mets (4-4) have now won three straight. Randy Fontanez worked a perfect ninth with a pair of strikeouts to earn his first save. Bret Mitchell pitched a scoreless seventh and eighth to earn the win. Starter Steven Matz allowed three runs (two earned) in six innings. He struck out six, walked one and surrendered five hits. Dilson Herrera led off the bottom of the first with a double and Brandon Nimmo followed with a run-scoring single. The 1-0 lead lasted until the fourth. The Miracle loaded the bases with no outs. Matz nearly escaped unscathed. He got Adam Brett Walker to fly out. Stuart Turner then grounded to third, but Rodriguez successfully threw home to record an out and preserve the Mets' lead. However, Niko Goodrum followed by belting a two-out, two-run single to put the Miracle up, 2-1. The Miracle added another run in the fifth, when Jonathan Murphy -- the brother of Mets second baseman Daniel Murphy -- reached on an error and later stole home. The Mets tied the score in their half of the fifth. Nimmo singled in Phillip Evans to make it 3-2. Then, with two outs, Jairo Perez grounded a ball to third that Goodrum kicked into center field, allowing Nimmo to score. Herrera, Nimmo, Rivera and Evans had two hits apiece. Rivera now has four multihit games in seven games this season. Box

SAVANNAH 4, ROME 1: Robert Gsellman limited Rome to one unearned run on six hits and a walk in seven innings. Robert Coles handled the final four outs for his second save. He inherited two runners in scoring position in the eighth and produced a strikeout to maintain a three-run lead. Stefan Sabol and Victor Cruzado had two RBIs apiece.

with a one-out triple by Michael Crouse, but failed to score. Jon Berti used speed to put the Fisher Cats on the board in the fourth. He led off the frame with a bunt single, stole second and third and scampered home when Kevin Plawecki’s throw to third tailed into left field. Gorski followed by issuing a pair of one-out walks, but avoided more harm by coaxing an inning-ending double-play grounder from Gabe Jacobo. Following two-out singles by Matt Reynolds and Kyle Johnson in the fifth, Brian Burgamy blasted a 2-1 pitch from Bibens-Dirkx off the base of the video board in right-center. His first homer as a B-Met pushed the lead to 5-1. Gorski preserved the lead with a perfect fifth. He worked around two singles to post a scoreless sixth. With runners on first and second, the southpaw capped his performance by striking out Ryan Schimpf to cap a nine-pitch at-bat.
