LAS VEGAS 5, TUCSON 2: Starter Rafael Montero limited Tucson to two runs on eight hits and two walks in six innings to earn his first Triple-A victory. Zach Lutz and Mike Baxter homered against Anthony Bass. Ruben Tejada was 0-for-4 with a walk. Matt den Dekker got his first PCL hit and is now 1-for-22 since joining the team. Box

second straight game the B-Mets produced consecutive long balls. The B-Mets (53-31) again blasted away in the fifth. Blake Forsythe doubled, extending his hitting streak to seven games. Joe Bonfe plated him with a single. Wilfredo Tovar then stretched the lead to six runs by launching a two-run homer -- his first long ball as a B-Met. B-Mets starter Noah Syndergaard held the Fisher Cats scoreless into the sixth. The ex-Blue Jays farmhand's only blemish came when he surrendered a three-run homer in the sixth, which pulled New Hampshire within 6-3. But Ceciliani hit a wall-scraping two-run homer in the seventh off reliever Matt Wright. Binghamton also tattooed Dustin Antolin and Chorye Spoone in the eighth, to the tune of six runs on three hits and six walks. The B-Mets sent 12 batters to the plate in the inning, which was highlighted by a two-run blast from Danny Muno and a three-run triple from Ceciliani. Syndergaard worked out of a jam in the seventh to cap his night with a scoreless frame. John Church tossed a perfect eighth. Adam Kolarek worked around a walk and two singles in a scoreless ninth to seal Binghamton’s biggest win since a 15-2 victory over the Fisher Cats on April 21. Syndergaard (2-0) struck out seven while allowing eight hits and three runs (none earned) over seven innings. Box

ST. LUCIE 6, FORT MYERS 3: Charley Thurber, Jayce Boyd and Dustin Lawley all produced solo homers for St. Lucie (44-38). Boyd, Kevin Plawecki and Gilbert Gomez finished with two hits apiece. Thurber’s homer in the second gave the Mets a 3-2 lead. Boyd’s long ball an inning later extended the lead to two runs. Alex Panteliodis (3-3) allowed three runs and seven hits while issuing three walks and striking out one in five innings. Randy Fontanez retired all six batters he faced in relief. Tim Byrdak retired the side in order in the eighth. Hamilton Bennett pitched a scoreless ninth for his seventh save. Box

GREENVILLE 3, SAVANNAH 1: Steven Matz tossed a three-hit, seven-inning shutout in Game 1. The Gnats had been held hitless after a game-opening single by Chad Zurcher until the seventh, when they exploded for three runs. Kyle Johnson had a run-scoring single with the bases loaded and Maikis De La Cruz and Stefan Sabol added sacrifice flies. Paul Sewald surrendered two runs in the sixth to break a 1-all tie as the Gnats (50-35) lost the nightcap. Box 1, Box 2

JOHNSON CITY 10, KINGSPORT 5: Starter Persio Reyes allowed seven runs in 3 2/3 innings. Richie Rodriguez and Adrian Abreu had two RBIs apiece for the K-Mets (5-10) in the loss. Box

BROOKLYN 5, ABERDEEN 3: Patrick Biondi laced a seventh-inning single that scored Jorge Rivero and Anthony Chavez, tying the score at 3. Biondi finished 3-for-4 with two RBIs and a walk. Matt Oberste delivered the game-deciding run later in the inning on a sac fly, which scored Biondi. Teammate Jared King finished 3-for-4 with an RBI. LJ Mazzilli produced an insurance run in the top of the ninth. Mazzilli singled to score Biondi from second. Biondi scored three of the Cyclones' five runs. In his fourth start with the Cyclones, Robert Gsellman allowed his first earned runs in the New York-Penn League. Gsellman allowed three runs in five innings. He struck out six and now has a 1.23 ERA. Reliever Paul Paez pitched an inning of scoreless relief to earn the win in his pro debut. John Mincone recorded his third save. Box

GCL NATIONALS 4, GCL METS 2 (10 innings): With the score tied at 1, Mets reliever Casey Meisner departed in the top of the 10th after surrendering a one-out double to Bryan Mejia and walking Raudy Read. Cameron Griffin entered and issued a walk and had a strikeout. With the bases loaded and two outs, Jose Marmolejos-Diaz then produced a two-run single against Griffin. Adderling Ruiz followed with an RBI single for a three-run cushion. The Mets (2-10) scored one run in the bottom half, when Wuilmer Becerra was plunked, advanced to second on a wild pitch and came home on Ivan Wilson's single. But with the bases loaded later in the frame, Nats reliever Jake Walsh entered and coaxed a game-ending double play from Leon Canelon. Box
