OKLAHOMA CITY 5, LAS VEGAS 1: Noah Syndergaard, returning from a disabled list stint for a sprained left shoulder, allowed four runs on seven hits and a walk in a four-inning, 73-pitch effort. Manager Wally Backman was ejected and proceeded to rip his lineup card to shreds in front of the umpire. Las Vegas' lone run came on Josh Satin's two-run RBI single in the ninth. Travis d'Arnaud went 1-for-4 as his Pacific Coast League average slipped to .394. Box

ST. LUCIE 6, CHARLOTTE 2: St. Lucie picked up where it left off before the Florida State League All-Star break -- with a win. The Mets' fourth straight victory kept them a half-game behind victorious Fort Myers for first place in the South Division. The Mets (39-29) have two games remaining in the first half, both against Charlotte. Steven Matz struck out six Crabs in six innings in Monday's victory. He gave up six hits and two earned runs. Matz threw a season-high 103 pitches and earned his fourth win. Paul Sewald contributed 1 2/3 scoreless innings with four strikeouts for his fourth hold. Randy Fontanez retired all four batters he faced to pick up his 10th save. The Mets scored three runs in the second. Cam Maron delivered a two-out RBI single against Leonel Santiago. After Maikis De La Cruz singled, Eudy Pina's two-run double made it 3-0. The Crabs scored both of their runs in the fourth. After loading the bases, Kes Carter singled to plate Leonardo Reginatto. Jonathan Quinonez followed with an RBI groundout to cut the Mets' lead to 3-2. Aderlin Rodriguez got a run back in the bottom half. He drew a leadoff walk and moved to second on a bloop hit by De La Cruz. Quinonez bobbled the ball in shallow right and Rodriguez took off to third. Quinonez’s bad throw skipped away from third and Rodriguez came home. De La Cruz drove in Brandon Nimmo with a single in the sixth to make it 5-2. Nimmo capped off the scoring when he doubled against Casey Weathers in the seventh to plate T.J. Rivera. Nimmo went 2-for-3 with a triple, double, walk, RBI and two runs scored. Box

STATEN ISLAND 7, BROOKLYN 2: Staten Island broke a 2-all tie with four unearned runs against Gaither Bumgardner over the seventh and eighth innings. Right-fielder Michael Bernal had two errors and first baseman Jeff Diehl also committed an error during that late meltdown. Box

LAS VEGAS 7, TACOMA 5
TACOMA 3, LAS VEGAS 2: Vic Black tossed a scoreless bottom of the seventh with one strikeout to secure his second save as Las Vegas completed a 7-5 win in the resumption of Sunday's suspended game. Andrew Brown had delivered a tiebreaking two-run homer in the top half of the seventh Sunday. Noah Syndergaard started Monday's regularly scheduled game. He allowed one run on seven hits and three walks while striking out eight in 5 2/3 innings. He threw 95 pitches (61 strikes) and departed with the score tied at 1. Taylor Teagarden hit a tiebreaking solo homer in the top of the ninth against Clay Rapada, but Jeff Walters surrendered two runs in the bottom half to suffer the blown save. Kirk Nieuwenhuis remained out of the lineup a day after injuring an elbow colliding into the outfield wall on a catch. Box 1, Box 2

NEW HAMPSHIRE 5, BINGHAMTON 0: After taking over for rehabbing major leaguer Casey Janssen, Scott Copeland tossed eight scoreless innings to hand Binghamton its third consecutive loss. Binghamton threatened against Janssen in the first, but failed to

break through. Kyle Johnson opened the game by zipping Janssen’s first pitch into center for a single. Matt Reynolds also singled, but Janssen used a pair of groundouts to escape. B-Mets starter Tyler Pill stumbled in the third. Andy Fermin pulled a solo homer inside the right-field pole for a 1-0 lead. Copeland used a double play to erase a leadoff single in the second, tossed a perfect third, worked around a two-out single in the fourth and used another twin-killing to post a scoreless fifth. New Hampshire tacked on two more runs in their half of the fifth. After Brad Glenn doubled, Brian Van Kirk bounced a grounder to third and reached safely when Brian Burgamy’s throw pulled Matt Clark off first base. Following a walk to load the bases, Jon Jones beat a potential double-play throw to first as a run scored. Jon Berti brought in New Hampshire’s third run with a bunt single down the third-base line. Overall, Copeland allowed only one B-Met to reach second base. Pill (0-5) suffered his second straight hard-luck loss. He allowed three runs (one earned) on three hits over five innings. The B-Mets have scored a total of eight runs in Pill’s five starts. All three of Binghamton’s shutout losses have come in games started by Pill. Cory Vaughn collected his team-leading fifth outfield assist. Box

ST. LUCIE 5, CHARLOTTE 2: Gabriel Ynoa rebounded from three consecutive subpar outings to limit the Stone Crabs to two runs in six innings. Ynoa had been roughed up by the Crabs for seven runs in 4 2/3 innings last Tuesday. This time, Ynoa struck out the side

in the fourth, was able to strand a runner on third with less than two outs in the fifth, and pitched around a two-out single in the sixth. He struck out three and scattered six hits. The Mets only totaled five hits, but they managed to manufacture key runs. Jairo Perez doubled against Alex Colome in the second and moved to third on a wild pitch. 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. Reliever Paul Sewald pitched around a two-out walk in a scoreless seventh. The Mets added two insurance runs in the eighth, on Aderlin Rodriguez's single and Maron's fielder's choice. Beck Wheeler retired all six batters he faced, including striking out four straight to end the ballgame. Goeddel is the brother of Mets farmhand Erik Goeddel. Box

SAVANNAH 5, ROME 1: Savannah went 6-1 on its homestand and allowed two runs or fewer in all six wins. The Gnats (20-9) broke a 1-all tie with a four-run sixth. Stefan Sabol, Dominic Smith and Jon Leroux all walked. Sabol scored the go-ahead run on a wild pitch by reliever Tyler Brosius. Jeff Glenn then delivered an RBI single. The final two runs scored on Gavin Cecchini’s chopper under the glove of Braves third baseman Carlos Franco, who was charged with an error. The Braves had opened the scoring with an unearned run in the second. Savannah starter Kevin McGowan allowed only that run on six hits and four walks in 5 2/3 innings. Savannah tied the score at 1 in the fourth when Sabol had a leadoff homer against Brosius. McGowan departed with the score tied at 1, two outs and the bases loaded in the sixth. Akeel Morris entered and induced a fly ball to end the threat. He earned the win after logging 1 2/3 innings of scoreless relief. Cecchini’s third-inning double extended his hitting streak to eight games. The 2012 first-round pick returned to the lineup a day after getting pulled for lack of hustle. Box

LAS VEGAS 8, SALT LAKE 5: Starter Jacob deGrom (2-1) allowed two runs in six innings. Rylan Sandoval went 3-for-5 with two RBIs. Box

CHARLOTTE 5, ST. LUCIE 1: Kes Carter had a go-ahead two-run single and the Stone Crabs scored four runs with two outs in the seventh to get past the Mets. Dustin Lawley had launched his league-leading 18th homer leading off the top half of that frame, against ex-Met Ramon Ramirez, to tie the score. With two hits in the seventh, Domingo Tapia allowed two hits and a walk. Cody Satterwhite, who was acquired from Sioux City in the American Association of Independent Baseball, made his St. Lucie debut with the bases loaded and gave up a two-run single to Carter. Carter's groundball went off the glove of first baseman Nelfi Zapata on a diving attempt. Tapia pitched effectively despite being charged with four runs in 6 2/3 innings. He struck out six and walked one. Hamilton Bennett retired the side in order in the eighth. Box

SAVANNAH 8, AUGUSTA 1: Cole Frenzel and Eudy Pina drove in three runs apiece, while Chad Zurcher scored three runs. Starter Gabriel Ynoa tossed 6 2/3 scoreless innings to improve to 10-3. Box

KINGSPORT 3, GREENEVILLE 2: Jeff Diehl delivered a leadoff homer in the bottom of the ninth to give the K-Mets (8-11) a walk-off win. Starter Rob Whalen allowed one run, unearned, on three hits and two walks while striking out six in six innings. Box

LOWELL 5, BROOKLYN 2: Carlos Valdez, who tossed six scoreless innings in his previous outing, this time walked the first two batters he faced. Later in the first inning, with runners on the corners and one out, Aaron King sent a grounder to first baseman Alex Sanchez for a seeming double play. But Sanchez took off the force at second by stepping on first and a run scored when no tag was applied at second. Valdez nonetheless took a no-hitter into the fifth, when he surrendered a leadoff hit to Nick Moore. Immediately after Moore’s single, Williams Jerez doubled. Both scored on groundouts. With two outs, Valdez appeared out of the inning by coxing a groundball from Cleuluis Rondon, but third baseman Anthony Chavez threw the ball past first base. Kevin Mager then delivered an RBI single as the Spinners took a 4-0 lead. In 4 2/3 innings, Valdez surrendered three hits, four runs (three earned) and four walks. The Spinners added a run in ninth inning on LJ Mazzilli's error. Mazzilli committed his first two errors of the season in the game. The Cyclones' best opportunity came in seventh. Matt Oberste had a leadoff double. Sanchez followed with a single. Jorge Rivero then drove in Oberste to cut the Spinners' lead to 4-1. Tomas Nido could not keep the rally going, grounding into a double play. The Cyclones scored their second run on an RBI double from Rivero. He had two hits and two RBIs on the day. Rivero leads the Cyclones with eight multi-hit games. Box
