LAS VEGAS 9, ALBUQUERQUE 6: The 51s overcame a two-run deficit with a five-run eighth that was capped by a two-run double from Danny Muno. Andrew Brown and Josh Satin also drove in two runs apiece. Starter John Lannan allowed four runs on nine hits and three walks in four innings. He surrendered two homers. Box

HARRISBURG 2, BINGHAMTON 1: The B-Mets went 0-for-9 with runners in scoring position and left runners on base in each of the final five innings. Dustin Lawley doubled in the first inning against Austin Voth to plate Brian Burgamy, who had been hit by a pitch with two outs. Harrisburg evened the score at 1 in the bottom half against Gabriel Ynoa. Matt Skole reached on a two-out double and stole third base. Kevin Keyes' RBI single then plated him. The Senators took the lead in the second. Drew Vettleson doubled and advanced to third on a groundout. Brian Jeroloman then produced a sacrifice fly. Ynoa (2-1) allowed two runs in six innings but took the hard-luck loss. Adam Kolarek threw two scoreless relief innings. Burgamy extended his hitting streak to a season-high 12 games. Darrell Ceciliani had a nine-game hitting streak snapped. Box

FORT MYERS 4, ST. LUCIE 0: Brett Lee became the first pitcher this season to go the distance in a nine-inning game against the Mets. Stuart Turner broke a scoreless tie in the seventh with a two-out, two-strike, run-scoring triple that plated Travis Harrison. Turner’s triple was the last pitch thrown by Mets starter Kevin McGowan, who took the loss despite making his best start of the season. McGowan had only allowed two singles to that point. He began the seventh inning by walking Harrison. It was just his second free pass of the game. The Mets had an opportunity to tie the score in the eighth, but with one out and runners on the corners, Jared King grounded into an inning-ending double play for the second time in the game. The Miracle added three runs in the ninth against Paul Sewald. Gavin Cecchini and Jeff McNeil each had two hits. Box

SAVANNAH at AUGUSTA (ppd.)

KINGSPORT 16, BRISTOL 10: Ivan Wilson had a grand slam in a six-run third as the K-Mets built at 8-4 lead. Luis Guillorme went 5-for-6 with three doubles, an RBI and two runs scored. Eudor Garcia had a solo homer as part of a 3-for-4, three-RBI night. Box

BROOKLYN 4, MAHONING VALLEY 2: Starter Corey Oswalt (5-1) allowed two runs (one earned) in six innings. Brooklyn took a 3-2 lead on Jeff Diehl's two-run double in the fourth. Box

GCL CARDINALS 3, GCL METS 2: Waldo Rodriguez surrendered a two-out walk-off RBI single to Magneuris Sierra in the ninth. The Mets had evened the score at 2 a half-inning earlier. Milton Ramos and Enmanuel Zabala each had two hits and scored a run. Box

scored the go-ahead run in the top of the ninth on an RBI single by Jesus Montero against Vic Black. Black surrendered two hits and three walks in 1 1/3 innings as his ERA climbed to a still-modest 1.23. In the regularly scheduled game, Las Vegas -- no-hit through five innings -- scored eight runs in the sixth to break a scoreless tie. Shortstop Rylan Sandoval had a two-run double, first baseman Brandon Allen a two-run triple and catcher Juan Centeno a two-run double in the frame. Left-hander Dana Eveland tossed five scoreless innings in a no-decision. He allowed five hits, walked three and struck out four. Tacoma right-hander Jordan Pries pitched 5 1/3 innings of no-hit ball, but walked four, was charged with one run and suffered the loss. Box 1, Box 2

BINGHAMTON 2, HARRISBURG 1: Kevin Plawecki threw out three attempted base stealers and contributed an RBI double and Tyler Pill struck out a season-high seven over 5 2/3 scoreless innings to earn his first win since April 18, 2013. Against Harrisburg starter

Plawecki
A.J. Cole, Kyle Johnson doubled and Plawecki extended his hitting streak to eight games and gave the B-Mets a 1-0 lead with a third-inning double as well. Pill opened his sixth start of the season with two scoreless frames. He then used a pair of strikeouts to work around a one-out single in the third. Plawecki erased Cutter Dykstra’s single in the fourth by throwing him out at second on an attempted steal. Pill posted a perfect fifth before running into trouble in the sixth. Pinch-hitter Quincy Latimore opened the frame with a single, but was nabbed by Plawecki when he tried to steal second as Michael Taylor struck out. Pill’s day ended after hitting Caleb Ramsey with a 1-2 pitch. T.J. Chism took over with two outs to face Dykstra -- the son of ex-Met Lenny Dykstra -- but never needed to retire him. Ramsey was thrown out by Plawecki while trying to swipe second, ending the inning. Binghamton doubled its lead in the sixth against reliever James Simmons. Dustin Lawley doubled and took third on Cory Vaughn's single. Darrell Ceciliani then plated Lawley with a sac fly. Harrisburg got on the board without a hit in the seventh. After Adam Kolarek walked Matt Skole with one out, Justin Bloxom hit a potential inning-ending double-play ball to third. Lawley fielded it cleanly, but fired wide of second, putting runners at the corners. Ricky Hague cut Binghamton’s lead to 2-1 with a sac fly. Brian Jeroloman chased Kolarek with a leadoff single in the eighth, but Jon Velasquez entered and retired three straight. Chasen Bradford inherited the one-run lead in the ninth. After a leadoff walk and a two-out single put the tying run in scoring position, the right-hander induced Jason Martinson to chop into a game-ending fielder’s choice. Pill (1-5) allowed four hits and issued no walks. He has a 1.15 ERA in his last three starts (2 ER, 15.2 IP). Bradford earned his sixth save. Plawecki is hitting .406 (13-for-32) with five multi-hit games during his eight-game hitting streak. Box

CHARLESTON 3, SAVANNAH 1: Chris Flexen suffered his team-high fourth loss as the Gnats' five-game winning streak ended. Flexen allowed three earned runs on six hits and four walks in 5 2/3 innings. The Gnats (24-10) scored in the first inning when Jared King singled home Jeff McNeil with what turned out to be an unearned run charged to Charleston starter Brady Lail. The RiverDogs righty proceeded to hold the Gnats scoreless over the next five frames to earn his fourth consecutive win. Charleston (19-16) tied the score in the third with two outs when Tyler Wade tripled and came home on Mikeson Oliberto's double. The RiverDogs tacked on two more runs in the fifth -- on an RBI single by Wade and then a sacrifice fly from Oliberto. After Flexen departed, Tim Peterson tossed 2 1/3 perfect innings. Box

Nats 11, Mets (ss) 5: Mazzoni allows 7

VIERA, Fla. -- Cory Mazzoni allowed seven eighth-inning runs as the Washington Nationals beat a Mets split squad, 11-5, Wednesday at Space Coast Stadium.

Mazzoni surrendered a three-run homer to Sandy Leon and two-run homer to Matt Skole in the eighth as Washington broke a 4-all tie with the offensive explosion.

Mazzoni
“We like his stuff. Today was a bad day,” Terry Collins said about Mazzoni, a second-round pick in 2011 from NC State, who went 5-3 with a 4.36 ERA in 13 appearances (12 starts) at Double-A Binghamton last season. “He was flying open. Stuff was flat. This kid has got very good velocity. He didn’t have it today. But he’s come with some high recommendations from the people in the organization that this kid can be an absolute late-in-the-game kind of bullpen guy, because he’s got three quality pitches. Today they just weren’t working.”

Jenrry Mejia’s own throwing error resulted in him allowing one unearned in two innings pitched.

Lefty relief prospect Adam Kolarek surrendered a leadoff homer to Ian Desmond in the third inning as the Nats grabbed a 2-0 lead.

After getting blanked for two innings by Gio Gonzalez, the Mets got on the board in the fourth inning against left-hander Matt Purke. Zach Lutz provided an RBI single that plated Wilmer Flores from second base, thanks in part to a weak throw from left field by ex-Met Scott Hairston. Anthony Seratelli followed that inning with a two-run single.

Jacob deGrom faced the minimum number of batters in two innings in relief for the Mets, working around a leadoff single in the fifth by coaxing a 6-4-3 double play from Steven Souza.

The Mets pushed the lead to 4-2 in the sixth on Taylor Teagarden’s sacrifice fly.

But in the seventh, John Church surrendered a game-tying two-run homer to Brian Goodwin. Then Mazzoni allowed seven runs in the eighth.

Lutz capped the scoring with a solo homer in the ninth.

What’s next: The Mets play three games Thursday … sort of.

In Kissimmee, Fla., the Mets have a 10 a.m. “B” Game against the Houston Astros. Logan Verrett, Jack Leathersich and Erik Goeddel are scheduled to pitch.

In the 1 p.m. Grapefruit League game there, John Lannan, Rafael Montero and Steven Matz now are due to pitch. Brad Peacock starts for the Astros.

Meanwhile, at 11 a.m. back at the Mets’ complex, a structured three-inning game takes place. Bartolo Colon (three innings), Jonathon Niese (two innings) and Bobby Parnell (one inning) all are scheduled to pitch.
