CHARLOTTE at ST. LUCIE (ppd.): St. Lucie's final game of the Florida State League first half was canceled due to unplayable field conditions. The washout did not have a bearing on the race for first place in the FSL South Division.

The Miracle (41-28) clinched the first-half South title and earned a spot in the postseason in September. Had the Miracle lost to Bradenton, the Mets would have won the South because the two teams would have finished with identical records. The Mets won the head-to-head matchup, 5-1, and had the tiebreaker. All 12 teams in the FSL will reset their records to 0-0 when the second half begins Thursday. Five players were promoted to Double-A Binghamton after the half's completion: Brandon Nimmo, Steven Matz, Dilson Herrera, Randy Fontanez and T.J. Rivera.

BREVARD COUNTY at ST. LUCIE (ppd.): The game has been rescheduled for a doubleheader Tuesday.

SAVANNAH 9, LAKEWOOD 8: Dustin Lawley reached in the ninth on a fielding error by Lakewood shortstop Tim Carver and advanced to second on a wild pitch. Lawley then scored the tiebreaking run when second baseman Carlos Perdomo also committed an error. Savannah had taken a two-run lead into the bottom of the eighth, but Estarlin Morel surrendered a pair of runs. Starter Logan Verrett allowed six runs in seven innings. Brian Harrison had three RBIs for the Gnats. Box

DURHAM 3, BUFFALO 2: Jordany Valdespin stole four bases and Josh Edgin and Manny Acosta tossed two scoreless relief innings apiece, but the Herd mustered only three hits and lost for the 15th time in 19 games. Valdespin became the first Bison to steal four bases in a game since Albert Hall achieved the feat on July 2, 1989 at Columbus. Edgin improved his scoreless-appearance streak to seven games, spanning 7 1/3 inning. After reaching by getting hit by a pitch in the first, Valdespin stole a pair of bases. He then scored on Fred Lewis' groundout. Buffalo used three walks and Josh Rodriguez's RBI single in the fourth to take a 2-1 lead. That would be erased a half-inning later against left-hander Garrett Olson. With the bases loaded, former Bison Jesus Feliciano produced a sacrifice fly, plating Cole Figueroa to even the score at 2. After advancing to third on a steal, Rich Thompson gave the Bulls a 3-2 advantage on Chris Gimenez's sac fly. Olson (3-5) was charged with three runs on six hits and a walk in five innings. Box

ALTOONA 6, BINGHAMTON 2: The B-Mets stranded 10 runners, including leaving the bases loaded in the ninth, while suffering their seventh straight loss. Binghamton matched a season high with four errors, resulting in three unearned runs. Wilmer Flores’ throwing error in the first set the table for a two-run frame. With two aboard, Matt Curry sent a slow roller to third. Flores’ throw skipped past Jefry Marte at first and rolled down the line, allowing a run to score. Roman Cabrera brought in the second run on a groundout. The Curve extended its lead in the third against B-Mets starter Gonzalez Germen as Brock Holt launched a solo homer. Binghamton took advantage of an Altoona error to plate its first run a half-inning later. Juan Centeno reached second when Curry failed to catch a throw from third baseman Stefan Welch. Juan Lagares plated Centeno with a two-out single against starter Gerrit Cole. Trailing 4-1, Eric Campbell led off the bottom of the sixth with a single and scored when Flores doubled. Cole recorded two more outs before being lifted for Nathan Baker, who completed the inning. Cole allowed two runs (one earned) on five hits and struck out five in 5 2/3 innings. Two B-Mets errors led to another Curve run in the seventh, Germen’s final frame. Germen (4-6) surrendered five runs (three earned) and matched a season high with eight hits allowed. Ryan Fraser threw a scoreless eighth before Reese Havens’ error led to an unearned run in the ninth. Binghamton threatened against reliever Hunter Strickland in its final at-bat. With two outs, the B-Mets loaded the bases on two singles and a walk. The rally fizzled when Marte bounced out to end the game. Box

ST. LUCIE 5, FORT MYERS 2: Tyler Pill allowed two runs (one earned) in six innings and Hamilton Bennett and Adam Kolarek combined for three scoreless relief innings. Alonzo Harris Jr. went 4-for-5 with an RBI. Blake Forsythe drove in two runs. Box

SAVANNAH 6, AUGUSTA 3
AUGUSTA 5, SAVANNAH 4 (8 innings):
Second-round Matt Reynolds from the University of Arkansas had a two-run homer -- his first long ball as a professional -- in a five-run fifth and T.J. Chism recorded his 13th save in the opener. In Game 2, Augusta overcame a 4-0 deficit in the final frame against Randy Fontanez and Chasen Bradford after a two-out error by Reynolds allowed the tying run to score and forced extra innings. Augusta salvaged a doubleheader split an inning later when Jose Cuevas delivered an RBI single against Bradford (2-2). Box 1, Box 2

KINGSPORT 5, GREENEVILLE 4: After Greeneville scratched across an unearned run in the top of the first, Kingsport answered with a four-spot in the bottom half. Consecutive singles by Gavin Cecchini and Jeyckol De Leon helped load the bases. Jeffrey Diehl then tripled. Joe Tuschak followed by singling home Diehl for a 4-1 lead. Greeneville pulled within a run before the K-Mets answered. Branden Kaupe walked to lead off the eighth and advanced to third base on a throwing error by Michael Dimock on a pickoff attempt. Maikis De La Cruz plated Kaupe with a sacrifice fly. The Astros again closed with a run on Ariel Ovando's one-out double in the ninth, but K-Mets reliever Luis Rengel struck out the next two batters for his first save. Corey Oswalt (1-0) picked up his first professional win. Steven Matz, the Mets' top pick in 2009, started and lasted until the third inning before having control problems. Matz walked three straight and four of five before Shane Bay replaced him. Catcher Tomas Nido manned the radar gun in the stands one night after getting knocked out of Sunday's game in a plate collision. De Leon, who played catcher, threw out two would-be stealers in the first inning. Box

BROOKLYN 7, HUDSON VALLEY 6 (11 innings): After Kevin Plawecki's homer tied the score at 6 in the bottom of the ninth, Jayce Boyd hit a bases-loaded sacrifice fly in the 11th. In his Brooklyn debut, Boyd -- the sixth-round pick from Florida State -- went 3-for-5 with two doubles, a triple a run scored and two RBIs. The 11th inning began with Plawecki being hit by a pitch. A bloop single by Cole Frenzel and a walk by Stefan Sabol loaded the bases, before Boyd’s game-winning sacrifice fly. Brooklyn reliever John Mincone earned the win. He pitched three innings, allowing two hits and one walk with four strikeouts. Box

SIGNING DAY: The Mets confirmed the signing of 16-year-old Dominican shortstop German Rosario to a $1.75 million contract, the highest international bonus ever paid by the organization, topping the $1.3 million handed to Fernando Martinez in 2005. The Mets also agreed to contracts with Dominican second baseman Franklin Correa and Venezuelan shortstop Miguel Patino. All three will report to the organization's Dominican Republic complex. The 6-foot-2, 170-pound Rosario, who bats and throws right-handed, also will participate in the fall instructional league. Rosario participated in an MLB showcase in February. He went 4-for-7 with a double against Venezuela. “Rosario is extremely athletic, very instinctual and highly intelligent,” Paul DePodesta said. “He has the chance to impact the game offensively, defensively and off the field.” Correa, 16, is a right-handed batter who also throws right-handed. The 5-9, 176-pounder grew up in Santo Domingo. Patino, 16, also bats and throws right-handed. The 5-11, 155-pounder resides in Puerto La Cruz, Venezuela. His brother Alfredo plays in the Royals minor league system.

BUFFALO 4, LOUISVILLE 2: Jack Egbert tossed two no-hit innings to earn the win in relief of Collin McHugh. In the third, Oswaldo Navarro tripled and scored on McHugh's groundout to open the scoring. Louisville evened the score a half-inning later on back-to-back doubles by Joey Gathright and Mike Costanzo. Bats starter Sean Gallagher's control issues allowed the Bisons to retake the lead in the bottom half of the frame. Josh Satin, Fred Lewis, Valentino Pascucci and Josh Rodriguez consecutively walked to give the Bisons a 2-1 lead. Lucas May tacked on another run with a sacrifice fly. Navarro's RBI single in the sixth accounted for the game's final run. McHugh held the Bats hitless through three innings, but he was unable to complete five innings and be eligible for his first Triple-A win. He was pulled without recording an out in the fifth after walking leadoff batter Daryl Jones, then surrendering singles to ex-Met Willie Harris and Kristopher Negron and hitting Gathright with a pitch. McHugh was charged with two runs on four hits and three walks in four-plus innings. Pascucci walked three times. His 61 bases on balls rank second in the International League. Box

BOWIE 8, BINGHAMTON 6: The B-Mets scored two runs in the bottom of the ninth without a hit, but fell short. Pinch-hitter Francisco Pena, representing the tying run, struck out against reliever Pedro Viola to end the ballgame. The B-Mets walked nine times and collected 11 hits, but stranded 11 and went 2-for-12 with runners in scoring position. Jefry Marte gave Binghamton its first lead of the year against Bowie with an RBI single against Bobby Bundy in the first. Wilmer Flores followed with a sac fly and added a run-scoring single in the third, giving Binghamton a 3-0 lead. The Baysox stormed back in the fourth against B-Mets starter Darin Gorski. Josh Barfield singled to spur a four-hit rally. Run-scoring singles by Manny Machado and Buck Britton got Bowie to within one, and an RBI fielder’s choice by Zelous Wheeler tied the score at 3. Catcher Juan Centeno allowed Britton to score the go-ahead run from third when he airmailed a throw to second on a fake steal by Wheeler. Bundy’s night came to an abrupt end in the fourth. With two outs, Marte seared a line drive off the righty’s left leg for a single. Bundy was helped off the field and replaced by Eddie Gamboa.

Gorski rebounded from the rocky fourth and faced the minimum over his final two innings. He allowed four runs (three earned) on five hits in six innings. He was taken off the hook when the B-Mets fought back to tie the score in sixth against Gamboa. Ryan Fraser took over for Gorski in the seventh and posted a perfect inning before running into trouble in the eighth. Antoan Richardson walked, advanced on a sac bunt and groundout and scored on a passed ball by Centeno. Trailing by a run, Binghamton threatened in the eighth, but Reese Havens struck out looking to strand two in scoring position. In the ninth, the Baysox tagged Robert Carson for three runs. Clayton Schrader then entered and got Binghamton back in the game, walking all three he faced. Viola replaced him and walked Dustin Martin to force in a run. Viola then induced Wilfredo Tover to bounce into a run-scoring double play before striking out Pena to end the ballgame. Fraser (1-1) suffered his first loss as a B-Met. Box

JUPITER 11, ST. LUCIE 4: Chase Huchingson was charged with nine runs (seven earned) on 11 hits in five innings. St. Lucie had built a 4-0 lead behind an RBI groundout by Juan Torres and run-scoring single by T.J. Rivera in the second and a two-run triple by Rafael Fernandez an inning later. Box

CHARLESTON 5, SAVANNAH 4: The Gnats committed four errors as starter Jacob DeGrom allowed four runs (one earned) in 5 2/3 innings. Aderlin Rodriguez went 3-for-4 with a pair of doubles and an RBI in the loss. Savannah pulled within a run in the ninth on consecutive inning-opening doubles by Dustin Lawley, Brian Harrison and Rodriguez. Gregory Pron, pinch running for Rodriguez, advanced to third on ZeErika McQueen's groundout. But Pron was stranded there when Albert Cordero and Yucarybert De La Cruz also grounded out. Box

KINGSPORT 4, BLUEFIELD 3: First-round pick Gavin Cecchini went 2-for-4 with two RBIs. Shane Bay tossed two scoreless, no-hit relief innings to earn his first professional save. Box

ABERDEEN 5, BROOKLYN 2: Scheduled start Julian Hilario was scratched, leading third-round pick Matt Koch from Louisville to make his pro debut. Koch lasted 1 2/3 innings and surrendered three runs. He unraveled the second, walking two and hitting a batter to open the frame. Beck Wheeler entered with two outs and recorded the inning's final out when the ball hit a baserunner to hold the deficit at 3-0. Box

Short hops

• Right-hander Collin McHugh, compared by scouts to Dillon Gee, had a misleading line in his Triple-A debut Monday. After two walks and a wild pitch in the first inning led to a Norfolk run on a sacrifice fly by veteran Miguel Tejada, McHugh put up zeroes until the sixth inning. That’s when McHugh -- an 18th-round pick in 2008 out of Berry College in Georgia -- allowed a pair of singles and a walk to open the frame and departed with Buffalo leading, 3-1. Left-hander Josh Edgin entered and allow all three inherited runners to score, so McHugh was charged with four runs on five hits and four walks in five-plus innings in his International League debut.

McHugh, who turned 25 on Tuesday, is only the second former Berry College pitcher to reach Triple-A. The other: right-hander Chuck Smith, who actually did so in 2006 with Norfolk, when the Tides were affiliated with the Mets organization.

• Reliever Jeff Stevens, a former Cub, was demoted to Binghamton to clear a Triple-A roster spot for McHugh.

• St. Lucie third baseman Wilmer Flores earned MVP honors at Saturday’s Florida State League All-Star Game. Flores went 3-for-4 with three RBIs and a walk in a 6-3 South victory. The Mets had eight players appear in the game, including late addition Richard Lucas (0-for-3) to man first base. The others: outfielder Cory Vaughn (1-for-2), catcher Blake Forsythe (1-for-2), shortstop Wilfredo Tovar (0-for-2), left-hander Chase Huchingson (0 ER, 1 IP) , right-hander Cory Mazzoni (1 ER, 1 IP) and left-hander Adam Kolarek (0 ER, 1 IP).

• Mazzoni, the organization’s second-round pick in 2011 from NC State, is expected to be promoted to Double-A Binghamton today. He will be part of a six-man B-Mets rotation. Mazzoni went 5-1 with a 3.25 ERA in 12 starts with St. Lucie, allowing 64 hits and 16 walks while striking out 48 in 63 2/3 innings.

• Kingsport, including first-round pick Gavin Cecchini, a high school shortstop from Louisiana, opened its season Tuesday night. The full roster:

Pitchers: Martires Arias, Alberto Baldonado, Shane Bay, Matt Budgell, Christian Chivilli, Miller Diaz, Zachary Dotson, Ramon Estevez, John Gant, Robert Gsellman, Steven Matz, Christian Montgomery, Akeel Morris, Flabio Ortega, Andres Perez, Luis Rengel, Persio Reyes, Carlos Valdez, Edioglis Villasmil.

Catchers: Tyler Carpenter, Jeyckol Deleon, Alex Machillanda, Tomas Nido.

Infielders: Cecchini, Anthony Chavez, Jeffrey Diehl, Branden Kaupe, Pedro Perez, Yeixon Ruiz, Kevin Wiejgerste.

Outfielders: Michael Bernal, Maikis De La Cruz, Bradley Marquez, Eris Peguero, Joe Tuschak.

Cecchini went 0-for-3 with two walks, a caught stealing, run scored and throwing error in his pro debut.

• Purdue catcher Kevin Plawecki, a supplemental first-round pick (35th overall), went 0-for-4, was hit by a pitch and had a passed ball Tuesday for Brooklyn in his pro debut.

• Prep right-hander Andrew Massie, the organization’s 24th-round pick, signed a contract Saturday to join the Mets, the Dyersburg (S.C.) State Gazette reported. Fourteenth-round pick Chris Flexen, a high school right-hander from California, reportedly is close to signing as well.

• Buffalo outfielder Matt Tuiasosopo snapped an 0-for-30 skid Saturday.

Jenrry Mejia made his third relief appearance since converting from starting Tuesday. He tossed two scoreless innings. Mejia rebounded from a woeful appearance Sunday, in which four of five batters reached -- via two hits, plus a walk and a hit batter. He has yet to enter mid-inning or inherit runners during a two-week program to ready him for major league consideration.

• With Tuesday’s loss, St. Lucie owns a 48-19 record with one game remaining in its first half. The club narrowly will fall shy of becoming the third team in Florida State League history to win 50 games in a half. The lone teams to accomplish the feat:
