LAS VEGAS 4, NEW ORLEANS 3: Eric Campbell (2-for-2, walk) delivered a two-out double in the eighth to plate Francisco Pena and break a 3-all tie. Right-hander Jacob deGrom pitched six innings for the 51s and allowed three runs on nine hits and a walk. DeGrom also produced his first professional homer -- a solo shot in the sixth inning to break a scoreless tie. Robert Carson earned his 10th save after entering with two outs in the ninth and retiring pinch hitter Nick Green. John Church (2-0) earned the win in relief. Box

season Binghamton lost on a walk-off wild pitch. The other instance: John Church on April 23 in the 10th inning at Portland. It was Walters’ first blown save since June 6 against Trenton and snapped a streak of 20 straight save conversions. Walters (3-2) suffered his third blown save of the season and first loss since May 24. The B-Mets had overcome an early deficit with a four-run rally with two outs in the seventh. The B-Mets handed a 6-5 lead to Walters in ninth. Pitching for the first time in five days, the righty recorded the first out on one pitch before surrendering a single to Matt Tolbert and a double to Sebastian Valle. Following an intentional walk to load the bases, Anthony Hewitt tied the score with an infield single. Walters spiked the next pitch past catcher Blake Forsythe, allowing Valle to score the game-winning run. Trailing 4-2, Binghamton saved its offensive magic for the seventh. Colby Shreve collected the first two outs, but then allowed two to reach. Cory Vaughn cut the deficit to one and ended Shreve’s night with an RBI single. Southpaw Austin Wright entered to face Allan Dykstra. After taking two out of the zone, Dykstra launched a towering drive over the right-field wall for a go-ahead three-run homer. The long ball was Dykstra’s 19th of the season and first since July 22. Dykstra matched his career high. He also had 19 homers in 2011 with the B-Mets. Box

ROME 2, SAVANNAH 1: Rome broke a 1-all tie in the bottom of the eighth against Wanel Mesa. Starter Gabriel Ynoa allowed one run on three hits and no walks in six innings in a no-decision. The Gnats' lone run came in the fifth, when Jorge Rivero's single plated Nelfi Zapata. Box

PRINCETON 6, KINGSPORT 2: Martires Arias (1-6) allowed two runs on three hits and a walk in six innings in Game 1. Princeton jumped on Yoan Gonzalez for three first-inning runs in the nightcap to complete the sweep. Richie Rodriguez had a solo homer in the loss. Box 1, Box 2

GCL MARLINS 2, GCL METS 1: Casey Meisner suffered a tough-luck loss after allowing one run, unearned, on four hits and three walks in six innings. Trailing 2-0 in the bottom of the ninth, Oswald Caraballo scored on a groundout by Luis Guillorme as the Mets (14-32) pulled within a run. With potential tying run Jose Garcia at third base, Branden Kaupe popped out to third base to end the game. Guillorme's two-out fielding error at shortstop in the second resulted in an unearned run when Christian Rivera followed with a double against Meisner. Box
