OMAHA 3, LAS VEGAS 2: Taylor Teagarden's two-run homer in the top of the seventh against Blake Wood broke a scoreless tie. But 51s starter Logan Verrett surrendered a sacrifice fly to ex-Mets farmhand Francisco Pena in the bottom of that inning, then a game-deciding two-run homer to Brian Bocock in the eighth. Verrett (10-5) was credited with a complete game and allowed only four hits and two walks in the defeat. Box

BINGHAMTON 2, READING 1
BINGHAMTON 7, READING 3: Rehabbing Daisuke Matsuzaka tossed six strong innings and also contributed with a run-producing walk . Reading starter Jesse Biddle opened the fourth by issuing walks to Brian Burgamy and Jayce Boyd. Darrell Ceciliani followed with an RBI single. Three batters later, Biddle hit Wilfredo Tovar and walked Matsuzaka, forcing in another run. Mike Nesseth took over for Biddle and recorded the final out of the inning, defusing the threat. Matsuzaka cruised through four scoreless innings, needing only 38 pitches and facing one over the minimum. Reading’s first threat came in the fifth, when Brock Stassi pulled a one-out double down the right-field line. Matsuzaka stranded Stassi by retiring the next two batters. The Fightins cracked the scoreboard in the sixth. Pinch-hitter Peter Lavin doubled over right fielder Kyle Johnson’s head. He took third on a fly out and scampered home with Reading’s lone run when Matsuzaka uncorked a wild pitch. Jon Velasquez tossed a perfect seventh for his first save since 2010 as a Phillies farmhand at high-A Clearwater. Matsuzaka (1-0) allowed one run on three hits in six innings. He threw 69 pitches while walking none and collecting three strikeouts.

In Game 2, the B-Mets plated seven unanswered runs, highlighted by a go-ahead three-run homer from Tovar in the sixth. The Fightin Phils had blasted their way to the lead in the first inning on Aaron Altherr's three-run homer against Tyler Pill. Binghamton responded without needing a hit in the third against Reading starter Adam Loewen. Tovar walked and Pill reached safely when Loewen failed to cleanly field his drag bunt. After a walk loaded the bases, T.J. Rivera ripped a groundball through Jake Fox’s legs at third base, allowing Tovar to score. Burgamy followed with a fielder’s choice to third, plating Pill to cut the deficit to one run. Pill settled down after Altherr’s blast, retiring the final 13 batters he faced. The righty cruised through four perfect innings, striking out five additional batters, to cap his night. Loewen’s fortunes turned quickly when the B-Mets put together a two-out rally in the sixth. The lefty walked Dustin Lawley and hit Xorge Carrillo. Tovar then ripped a 1-0 pitch over the left-center wall. His second homer of the season put Binghamton ahead, 5-3. The B-Mets padded their lead in the ninth on Lawley's two-run double. Pill (8-5) struck out six while issuing no walks over five innings. He remains unbeaten in his last 15 games as a B-Met.

BRADENTON 5, ST. LUCIE 2: In his first start since Aug. 3, Luis Cessa allowed one single

Cessa
and one walk in five scoreless innings. He struck out seven, but did not factor in the decision when the bullpen could not hold a 2-0 lead in the eighth. Beck Wheeler surrendered three straight singles to start the frame and was replaced by lefty T.J. Chism to face lefty Adam Frazier. Frazier singled to left to make it 2-1. After Chism struck out Walker Gourley, Jordan Steranka produced a three-run double to put the Marauders ahead, 4-2. Bradenton added one more run in the inning when Jose Osuna’s grounder went through second baseman Phillip Evans' legs and Steranka scored. Yhonathan Barrios pitched around a one-out double by Evans in the ninth to close out the game. Cessa retired the first 11 batters he faced. His no-hit bid ended with two outs in the fourth on a single by Steranka. The only other batter to reach against Cessa was on a walk in the fifth. Cam Maron singled to extend his hitting streak to eight games. Box

SAVANNAH 9, GREENVILLE 3: The Gnats used bases-loaded walks to Victor Cruzado and

Panteliodis
Nelfi Zapata to score twice in the first inning. The Drive pulled within 2-1 in the fourth against Savannah starter Alex Panteliodis as Kevin Mager singled to plate Tzu-Wei Lin. That was the only run Panteliodis allowed before the ninth inning. The Gnats blew the game open with a combined seven runs in the sixth and seventh innings against reliever Oscar Perez. Jeff Glenn and Patrick Biondi drew back-to-back walks to start a three-run rally in the sixth. In the seventh, consecutive singles from Cruzado, Zapata, Jonathan Johnson, Glenn and Biondi led to four runs and a 9-1 Savannah advantage. Cruzado finished 2-for-3 with two walks, a run scored and an RBI. Yeixon Ruiz was 2-for-3 with a walk, two RBIs and two runs scored. Biondi was 2-for-2 with two walks and a run scored. Savannah let Panteliodis begin the ninth with an eight-run lead, but he allowed three hits, including two doubles, and reached his pitch limit. He was removed one out shy of his second complete game of the season. He still earned the win to improve to 5-3 with a 3.80 ERA. Box

KINGSPORT 4, GREENEVILLE 3: The K-Mets scored three runs in the bottom of the ninth for the walk-off win, capped by Vicente Lupo's game-ending steal of home. Lupo's RBI double earlier in the frame had tied the score at 3. Kingsport starter Persio Reyes tossed six scoreless innings. Box

BROOKLYN 2, VERMONT 1: Amed Rosario's two-out double in the third plated John Mora and opened the scoring. The Cyclones opened a 2-0 lead an inning later. Michael Conforto was hit by a pitch and stole second. Tyler Moore followed with an RBI double. Brooklyn starter Alberto Baldonado departed after five scoreless innings. In the eighth, Gaither Bumgardner inherited a runner on first with two outs from Carlos Valdez. A passed ball by Adrian Abreu advanced Max Kuhn to second. Trent Gilbert's RBI single then pulled Vermont within 2-1. In the ninth, closer Shane Bay surrendered one hit but converted his 13th save. Box

GCL MARLINS 9, GCL METS 5: Starter Darwin Reyes surrendered eight runs (four earned) on seven hits and three walks in 2 2/3 innings. Down 8-0, the Mets produced five fifth-inning runs, highlighted by Alvin Maracaro's two-run double. Maracaro, a third baseman, also committed two of the Mets' three errors. Adrian Almeida contributed three scoreless relief innings in the loss. Box

TOLEDO 4, BUFFALO 2: Jenrry Mejia suffered the loss, allowing two runs on four hits and a walk in two innings. Matt Harvey, auditioning for Saturday's major league start, took a no-hit bid into the sixth. He departed with a 2-1 lead and two runners in scoring position with two out in the seventh, and reliever Justin Hampson allowed an inherited runner to score to hand Harvey a no-decision. Harvey allowed three hits while walking four and hitting a batter. Adam Loewen homered for the Bisons and Zach Lutz contributed a sacrifice fly. Jason Bay went 0-for-2 with two walks in what should be his final rehab game. Box

TRENTON 6, BINGHAMTON 5: Owning a 5-4 lead entering the eighth, the B-Mets turned to reliever Ryan Fraser. But Zoilo Almonte lined a single off the righty’s leg to start the inning and Melky Mesa doubled. After a walk loaded the bases, J.R. Murphy tied the score with a sac fly. Rob Segedin gave Trenton the decisive lead with an RBI single. It was Trenton's first lead since scoring the first run just three pitches into the game. Jose Pirela led off by crushing a triple against starter Darin Gorski. He scored on the next pitch, once catcher Francisco Pena’s pickoff attempt sailed into left. Binghamton responded with a three-run third against Mikey O’Brien. After singling, Wilfredo Tovar stole second and scored on Juan Lagares' single. Reese Havens then launched a two-run homer, his eighth long ball of the season. Trenton countered in the fourth. Addison Maruszak and Almonte started the inning with back-to-back homers to tie the score at 3. It marked the third time this season Gorski had allowed consecutive homers. Binghamton grabbed the lead back without the aid of a hit in the fourth, during O’Brien’s final inning. Allan Dykstra walked, moved to second on an error and scored on consecutive groundouts. Wilmer Flores added an RBI double against reliever Graham Stoneburner in the fifth. Gorski nearly lost the lead in the sixth, his final frame. With two outs, Mesa bashed a solo homer. Luke Murton doubled and tried to score on a single by Murphy, but was gunned down at the plate by left fielder Eric Campbell. Gorski allowed four runs (three earned) on nine hits. He struck out five. The three homers allowed matched his career high. Fraser (2-2) suffered his first blown save. Box

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

KINGSPORT 1, JOHNSON CITY 0
JOHNSON CITY 4, KINGSPORT 1:
John Gant and Shane Bay combined on a four-hit shutout in Game 1. Julio Concepcion provided the lone run with a second-inning homer. In the nightcap, Cristian Chivilli surrendered all four runs (three earned) in three innings. Andrew Massie tossed three scoreless relief innings. Box 1, Box 2

BROOKLYN 7, STATE COLLEGE 4: Hansel Robles surrendered four runs (one earned) on five hits and three walks in 5 2/3 innings, but the Cyclones swept the Spikes. With two outs in the second inning, Stefan Sabol, Jayce Boyd and Dimas Ponce consecutively singled for a 1-0 lead. State College evened the score in the third as Tyler Gaffney doubled and Dave Valesente followed with an RBI single. A half-inning later, Boyd singled and Ponce walked. Eudy Pina then doubled, scoring Boyd for a 2-1 lead. Poor defense in the fourth cost the Cyclones three unearned runs. Jacob Stallings walked and Chris Diaz sent a grounder to Richie Rodriguez for a potential inning-ending double play. Rodriguez, though, botched the play. Yhonathan Barrios came up with runners on the corners and one out and grounded into a fielder's choice, allowing Stallings to score. Jared Lakind walked to place runners on first and second with two outs. With Alex Fuselier batting, Robles threw a wild pitch, advancing both runners. Fuselier then singled, scoring two as the Spikes took a 4-2 lead. In the fifth, hot-hitting Brandon Nimmo led off with a single. After a passed ball, Phillip Evans singled, moving Nimmo to third. Alex Sanchez struck out and Kevin Plawecki walked to load the bases. Sabol grounded into fielder's choice, allowing Nimmo to score and moving Evans to third. The second passed ball of the inning by catcher Dave Valesente allowed Evans to score. Boyd walked to put runners on first and second with two out. Ponce again came through, singling to score Sabol and move Boyd to third. Pina then delivered another RBI single to give the Cyclones a 6-4 lead. The Cyclones bullpen contributed 3 1/3 scoreless innings, surrendering one hit and one walk. Box

BUFFALO 8, PAWTUCKET 2: Buffalo grabbed an early 4-0 lead en route to its seventh straight win. With two outs in the second, the Bisons loaded the bases for Fred Lewis, who kept a hot streak alive with a two-run single. An inning later, Matt den Dekker and Zach Lutz drove in runs. In his first start since rejoining the Bisons, Chris Schwinden allowed one run and six hits in four innings. Jenrry Mejia allowed a solo homer to J.C. Linares in 1 2/3 relief innings.

BINGHAMTON 1, ERIE 0: Zack Wheeler faced three over the minimum in his first career complete-game shutout. Wheeler (9-4, 2.39 ERA) scattered six hits and struck out seven in a 106-pitch effort. Reese Havens launched his seventh homer to lead the B-Mets to their third straight victory. Making his third start against Erie, Wheeler got off to a bumpy start by walking Jamie Johnson in the first. The free pass quickly was erased when Niuman Romero bounced into a double play, the first of three twin killings by Erie. Wheeler faced the minimum over his first five frames. Erie’s only threat came in the sixth, when Tony Plagman led off with a double and moved to third on a sac bunt. Wheeler shut the door by striking out James McCann and inducing Jamie Johnson to ground out to second on a strong barehanded play by Havens. Erie starter James Avery kept the B-Mets in check, allowing one hit through five scoreless innings. The success came to an end in the sixth. With one out, Havens sent a solo homer over the left-field wall. Given a one-run lead, Wheeler tossed a perfect seventh and worked around a hit batsman and a single in a scoreless eighth. Wheeler returned for the ninth and induced McCann to ground out to start the frame. Johnson followed by dumping a single into left, but was thrown out at second trying to stretch it into a double. Romero kept Erie alive with a single, but Nick Castellanos struck out to end the game. Box

ST. LUCIE 3, TAMPA 1: Angel Cuan limited the Yankees to one run in 7 2/3 innings and Adam Kolarek notched his 14th save. Alonzo Harris Jr. tied the score at 1 with a homer in the third. Aderlin Rodriguez and Kai Gronauer added RBIs. Gronauer was playing his first game since landing on the DL with Binghamton on June 21 with a right calf strain. Danny Muno went 0-for-3 with a walk and started at second base in his return from a 50-game suspension for testing positive for what MLB had announced as a positive test for a metabolite of Drostanolone, a performance-enhancing drug. Box

LAKEWOOD 8, SAVANNAH 1: Starter Jim Fuller was charged with eight runs in 3 1/3 innings. Jared West and Randy Fontanez combined for 4 2/3 scoreless relief innings.

JOHNSON CITY 11, KINGSPORT 3: Persio Reyes (0-4) surrendered five runs in four innings. Reliever Chris Flexen, the Mets' 14th-round pick out of high school in Newark, Calif., was charged with six runs in 1 1/3 innings in his professional debut. Flexen just turned 18 on July 1. Box

BROOKLYN 6, STATE COLLEGE 3: Luis Mateo tossed seven scoreless innings and outlasted opposing starter Clay Holmes to earn his fourth victory. Holmes tossed five scoreless innings for the Spikes, and held the Cyclones to one hit. Mateo allowed one hit, one walk and struck out eight. Against State College reliever Emmanuel De Leon in the sixth, Eudy Pina and Jeff Reynolds singled to place runners on the corners. Dimas Ponce then doubled to plate Pina and advance Reynolds to third, but the Cyclones failed to capitalize. Phillip Evans grounded out to shortstop Jodaneli Carvajal and Alex Sanchez popped out to second baseman Yhonathan Barrios. Jayce Boyd then drew a walk, but Stefan Sabol grounded into a fielder's choice. In the seventh, Brandon Nimmo walked and Jeff Glenn flied out. Pina then reached when Barrios had a throwing error. Nimmo advanced to second, the to third on a single by Reynolds. Josh Smith entered from the State College bullpen. A sacrifice fly by Ponce allowed Nimmo to score for a 2-0 lead. Evans' single scored Pina for a three-run cushion. Sanchez reached on a fielding error by third baseman D.J. Crumlich as Reynolds scored. Brooklyn added two runs in the eighth as Nimmo contributed an RBI triple to score Sabol and Glenn singled. Reynolds went 2-for-5 with a run scored, while Nimmo went 2-for-3 with two runs scored.
