ROUND ROCK 12, LAS VEGAS 6: Starter D.J. Mitchell surrendered six runs in 4 1/3 innings. Eric Campbell's fifth-inning solo homer evened the score at 6, but Round Rock produced six runs against the 51s' bullpen. Campbell had three hits and three RBIs. Kirk Nieuwenhuis went 3-for-5 in the loss. Box

BINGHAMTON 8, HARRISBURG 4 (seven innings): One night after being no-hit, the B-Mets scored eight runs in the first two innings en route to a rain-shortened victory. After Harrisburg scored a run on an Anthony Rendon double in the top half of the first, Binghamton came out swinging against Harrisburg starter Caleb Clay. Darrell Ceciliani led off with a single and Danny Muno followed with a two-run homer. Josh Rodriguez then was hit by a pitch. Rodriguez moved to third on Allan Dykstra’s single and scored on a double play. Binghamton batted around in the second, scoring five more times. Ceciliani had a two-run triple. After Rodriguez singled him home, reliever Matt Swynenberg entered. Dykstra welcomed him with a two-run homer to push the lead to 8-1. B-Mets starter Erik Goeddel ran into trouble in the fourth. He gave up consecutive doubles to Ricky Hague and Swynenberg as Harrisburg cut the deficit to 8-4. Goeddel’s night ended after five innings. He allowed four runs on six hits and picked up his third victory. Adam Kolarek threw a perfect sixth. Jack Leathersich recorded two outs in the seventh before the rain came and ended the game. Box

but the Mets had their six-game winning streak snapped. Angel Cuan, starting in place of Domingo Tapia, allowed three runs and six hits over six innings. Tapia (2.23 ERA) landed on the DL after burning his non-pitching hand. Lawley had three of the five hits for the Mets, including a two-out, go-ahead two-run homer in the sixth. The Cardinals tied the score in the seventh on Ronny Gil’s RBI double against reliever Estarlin Morel. Jonathan Rodriguez had a go-ahead RBI double in a three-run eighth for the Cardinals against Randy Fontanez. Wanel Mesa allowed a solo homer to Stephen Piscotty in the ninth. Jennry Mejia will start Saturday’s series finale. It will mark his first official minor league game since a spring-training shutdown with forearm tendinitis. Box

ROME 3, SAVANNAH 2: Beck Wheeler (0-1) surrendered the tiebreaking run in the eighth as Jose Peraza singled with two outs, stole second and scored on Levi Hyams’ single. Hyams’ slow bouncer up the middle squirted off the glove of Savannah second baseman Yucarybert De La Cruz and into center field. The Braves (19-13) moved within a game of the Gnats (20-12) for first place in the Southern Division. Savannah never led. In the third, Jayce Boyd doubled home De La Cruz to even the score at 1. In the sixth, Kevin Plawecki doubled up the left-center gap to score Boyd and even the score at 2. Savannah starter Rainy Lara allowed two runs (one earned) in seven innings with eight strikeouts and no walks. Box
