Eveland
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

TACOMA 5, LAS VEGAS 3: The 51s squandered a late 3-2 lead as Tacoma swept the four-game series. Center fielder Kirk Nieuwenhuis' one-out fielding error in the seventh allowed Alex Liddi to reach second. Liddi then advanced to third on a wild pitch from Gonzalez Germen. Stefen Romero's RBI single evened the score. Germen surrendered a second run in the inning, on a one-out double by Carlos Triunfel. Greg Burke surrendered a run in the ninth on a sacrifice fly to give the Rainiers a two-run cushion. Pinch hitters Reese Havens and Omar Quintanilla walked to open the bottom of the ninth, and Kai Gronauer advanced both with a sacrifice bunt. But Nieuwenhuis and Brian Bixler consecutively struck out to end the game. Las Vegas had tied the score a 2 in the fifth on Josh Satin's two-run single. An inning later, the 51s had taken a 3-2 lead when Andrew Brown was hit by a pitch and scored on Jamie Hoffmann's fielder's choice groundout. Starter Chris Schwinden allowed two earned runs on three hits and five walks while striking out four in five innings. Box

With the B-Mets trailing 2-0, Danny Muno tripled against Akron starter Paolo Espino in the fifth to pull Binghamton within a run. Binghamton matched Akron’s long ball effort for a while. A four-run sixth pulled Binghamton even at 5. Josh Rodriguez and Cory Vaughn each had two-run homers in the frame. It was Vaughn's team-leading fourth homer. The tie did not last. Kolarek gave up the seventh-inning homer. Quincy Latimore added a solo shot in the eighth against Shawn Teufel. Alonzo Harris went 0-for-4, snapping a 10-game hitting streak. Box

ST. LUCIE 9, TAMPA 2: Right-hander Noah Syndergaard limited the Yankees to one unearned run on five hits and one walk and struck out seven in seven innings for his first win as a member of the Mets organization. He was acquired from Toronto in December in the R.A. Dickey trade. Robbie Shields went 4-for-5 with two doubles and scored three times to lift his average to .313. Dustin Lawley went 2-for-4 and drove in three runs. Travis Taijeron contributed two RBIs. Box

Frenzel
straight to pull into a first-place with Augusta. In a 2-all game in the ninth, Plawecki was hit by a pitch. Jeff Glenn then sent a broken-bat chopper to third. The bat shard struck West Virginia third baseman Eric Wood, who could not make the play. With runners at first and second, Frenzel followed with a line-drive RBI single to left. Frenzel had a hand in every Gnats run. He finished 3-for-4 with a double, walk, two RBIs and run scored. The Gnats had evened the score at 2 in the eighth. Frenzel and Stefan Sabol singled. Frenzel eventually scored on a fielder's choice when Jeff Reynolds chopped a ball high off home plate. The Power (9-15) scored twice against Savannah starter Matt Koch in the first inning. An error and three straight singles led to that damage. Koch tossed 3 2/3 innings and was charged with two runs (one earned) on four hits with no walks and a strikeout. Tim Peterson, Jake Kuebler and Tyler Vanderheiden combined for 5 1/3 scoreless relief innings. Vanderheiden earned his first South Atlantic League win. Box

BINGHAMTON 7, AKRON 5: In their Double-A debuts, 2011 third-round pick Logan Verrett took a scoreless effort into the seventh and Blake Forsythe had three RBIs and finished a homer shy of the cycle. Binghamton (3-0) is off to the franchise’s best start since 2000 and

Forsythe
is the Eastern League's lone remaining unbeaten team. Facing Matt Packer in the first inning, Darrell Ceciliani tripled and scored on Josh Rodriguez’s single. Then, in a three-run fourth, Cory Vaughn had an RBI triple. Danny Muno caught a break when right fielder Carlos Moncrief lost his fly ball in the sun, leading to an RBI double. Forsythe capped the inning with an RBI single. Binghamton stretched the lead to 5-0 on a fielding error by third baseman Giovanny Urshela in the fifth. Verrett faced two over the minimum through six innings, retiring 12 straight at one point. His scoreless effort got derailed in the seventh when Jesus Aguilar produced a two-run homer. Verrett exited after walking Chun Chen. John Church entered and surrendered an RBI single to Urshela, but struck out Tyler Holt to strand two runners, including the potential tying run. Binghamton restored a four-run cushion a half-inning later when Forsythe stroked a two-run triple against reliever Eric Berger. Adam Kolarek contributed a scoreless eighth. Adrian Rosario walked the leadoff man in the ninth and surrendered a two-run homer to Quincy Latimore. Tyler Pill makes his Double-A debut Sunday as the B-Mets attempt the four-game sweep. Box

ROME 6, SAVNNAH 3: In his first regular-season game since last July 26 with Kingsport, left-hander Steven Matz took a scoreless effort into the fifth inning. Rome's Aris Alcantara then doubled and Tyler Tewell walked to open that frame and Matz departed. Jake Kuebler, a former corner infielder in the Royals organization, entered and allowed both inherited runners to score, snapping Matz's personal scoreless streak at 22 innings dating to last season. Kuebler later surrendered a three-run homer to Josh Elander in what became a five-run frame as Rome took a 5-3 lead. Savannah catcher Jeff Glenn went 2-for-2 with a pair of doubles, two RBIs and two walks in the loss. Box

BUFFALO 7, SCRANTON/WILKES-BARRE 6: Matt den Dekker's three-run homer in the sixth against Ramon Ortiz rallied the Bisons within a run. A bases-loaded walk to Adam Loewen and sacrifice fly by Josh Satin an inning later gave Buffalo a 6-5 lead. Starter Garrett Olson allowed five runs in four innings as the Bisons fell behind, 5-1. Chris Schwinden tossed two scoreless relief innings after Olson departed, marking the first time Schwinden has worked back-to-back days in his pro career. Josh Edgin surrendered a seventh-inning RBI double to Jack Cust, snapping the southpaw's 8 1/3-inning scoreless streak and evening the score at 6. But Buffalo retook the lead a half-inning later on Brad Emaus' RBI single. Justin Hampson, who had been designated for assignment by the Mets, picked up the save in his return to Triple-A after clearing waivers. Ex-Met John Maine faces the Bisons on Sunday. Ryota Igarashi tossed a scoreless top of the ninth against Buffalo on Saturday. Box

BINGHAMTON 8, ALTOONA 2: Cory Mazzoni fired a career-high seven scoreless innings to snap a personal two-game losing streak. Pitching 120 miles from his hometown of Evans City, Pa., he allowed a season-low three hits and set a season high with six strikeouts. After being held hitless through four innings by Altoona starter Kyle McPherson, Jefry Marte reached on a booted groundball by shortstop Brock Holt in the fifth, and Dustin Martin followed by doubling. With two aboard, Sean Kazmar broke the scoreless tie by dumping a two-run double to left. Juan Lagares capped the inning with a two-out RBI single. Binghamton doubled its lead in the sixth. After Allan Dykstra singled and Marte flied out, reliever Mike Colla entered. Martin greeted him with a single. Francisco Pena then squeaked a three-run homer over the left-field fence. Mazzoni capped his night by working around a leadoff single in the seventh. The Curve jumped on Edgar Ramirez in the eighth. Quincy Latimore doubled and scored on Jeremy Farrell's single. Ramirez’s night came to a close after he loaded the bases on two walks. For the second straight night, Robert Carson entered with the bases loaded and no outs. After Oscar Tejeda cut the deficit to four with a sac fly, Carson retired the next two hitters. Binghamton continued its two-out hitting in the ninth against reliever Jeff Inman. With the bases loaded, Eric Campbell smacked a two-run single. Carson returned for the ninth and worked around a leadoff single to post a scoreless frame, striking out the final three batters. Box

BRADENTON 6, ST. LUCIE 3: Cory Vaughn went 2-for-4 and belted his 16th homer, but the Mets fell to the Marauders. Vaughn's solo shot came in the fourth to cut St. Lucie's deficit to 2-1. Zach Lutz ripped a solo homer to cut the deficit to four runs in the ninth. Richard Lucas delivered a single to score Vaughn and make it 6-3 later in the frame. St. Lucie starter Angel Cuan allowed four runs and six hits over seven innings with five strikeouts and two walks. Gift Ngoepe hit a pair of homers off Cuan and drove in three runs. Alex Dickerson also drove in three runs for Bradenton, including launching a two-run homer off John Church for a 6-1 lead in the eighth. Alonzo Harris Jr. went 2-for-4 in the loss. Box

CHARLESTON 9, SAVANNAH 7
SAVANNAH 1, CHARLESTON 0:
Starter Jimmy Fuller tossed five no-hit innings in his second 2012 start before reaching his pitch limit and departing. After walking the leadoff batter in the first inning, Fuller retired the next 15 batters. Reliever T.J. Chism gave up singles to the first two hitters he faced, but retired the next six as Savannah pitching faced three over the minimum in the seven-inning shutout. Aderlin Rodriguez contributed two of Savannah's three hits and drove in Cam Maron with the game’s lone run. The RBI came in the fourth, on a double off the warning track in left field. In Game 1, the Gnats had built a 7-2 lead thanks to a four-run second inning, then a three-run fifth highlighted by Dustin Lawley’s two-run homer. However, the RiverDogs tied the score with a five-run sixth against relievers Marcos Camarena and Randy Fontanez. Dogs third baseman Dante Bichette Jr. evened the score at 7 with a three-run homer. In the seventh, Ben Gamel's two-run triple put Charleston in front. Box 1, Box 2

PULASKI 13, KINGSPORT 2: Starter Robert Gsellman allowed six runs in four innings. Box

JAMESTOWN 6, BROOKLYN 3: Cyclones starter Luis Mateo (3-1) allowed four runs in six innings as his sterling New York-Penn League ERA rose to 1.90 in four starts. The Jammers scored three first-inning runs, highlighted by Anthony Gomez' two-out, two-run single. In the bottom half of the frame, Dimas Ponce reached on an error. He advanced to third on Alex Sanchez's single and Cole Frenzel's groundout. Kevin Plawecki walked to load the bases before Stefan Sabol was hit by a pitch to make it 3-1. But Jayce Boyd left the bases loaded when he was called out on strikes. Jamestown struck for another run in the third as Kentrell Dewitt hit a two-out single and stole second and Gomez followed with an RBI single. Brooklyn picked up a run in the fourth when Ponce singled to score Brandon Nimmo. The Cyclones then moved within a run in the eighth. Sabol hit a one-out double against Jamestown reliever Nick Wittgren. Sabol ultimately scored on a double by Nimmo. However, Nimmo was stranded in scoring position when Eudy Pina flied out. The Jammers added a pair of runs in the ninth against Dawrin Frias, with one run unearned after scoring on a throwing error by Plawecki behind the plate. Box

PAWTUCKET 8, BUFFALO 3: Matt den Dekker produced his first Triple-A homer. Jenrry Mejia tossed a scoreless inning, allowing one hit, in his first relief appearance of a two-week program to ready him for major league bullpen duty. Justin Turner at second base and Ronny Cedeño at shortstop each went 1-for-4 as part of a rehab assignment. Turner was redirected to New York after the game. He should end a rehab assignment early and replace Jason Bay on the major league roster. Cedeño, who was making his first rehab start with the Bisons, struck out twice. Starter Dylan Owen and reliever Jack Egbert combined to allow seven runs (five earned) and three homers in four innings as Buffalo trailed 7-1. Manny Acosta tossed two scoreless relief innings despite allowing three hits. Box

BINGHAMTON 4, ALTOONA 3: Rylan Sandoval led the B-Mets with three hits, including a go-ahead RBI single in Binghamton’s decisive three-run sixth. Binghamton overcame a 3-0 deficit. After B-Mets starter Gonzalez Germen hit Quincy Latimore to start the second inning, former Mets farmhand Stefan Welch sent a potential double-play bouncer to first base. The B-Mets failed to record an out. Eric Campbell’s throw to second sailed into left field. Drew Maggi then delivered an RBI double. Altoona's Jarek Cunningham led off the third with a single and scored two batters later when Ramon Cabrera doubled. Altoona starter Brandon Cumpton made that 2-0 lead stand early. The righty faced one over the minimum through his first four frames, allowing only a harmless single to Juan Centeno in the third. In the fifth, Altoona converted three singles and a throwing error by third baseman Jefry Marte into a three-run lead. Binghamton started its comeback in the fifth against Cumpton. Dustin Martin led off with a double off the base of the center-field wall. Sandoval had an RBI single. With the deficit cut to two, Germen (3-4) returned to the mound and capped his night with a perfect sixth. The righty allowed three runs (one earned) on eight hits and struck out six over six innings. In the sixth, Reese Havens’ one-out single started a streak of six straight B-Mets reaching safely. Marte and Campbell followed with singles to load the bases. Martin tied the score with a two-run single that ricocheted off Cumpton’s glove and rolled into right field. With runners at the corners, reliever Kris Harvey entered. Sandoval greeted the righty by ripping an RBI single. B-Mets reliever Ryan Fraser struck out all three he faced in a perfect seventh.
