MEMPHIS 7, LAS VEGAS 5 (11 innings): Randal Grichuk produced a tiebreaking two-run double against Zack Thornton in the top of the 11th. The 51s had rallied from a 5-0 deficit, tying the score with a four-run seventh that was capped by Josh Satin's RBI double. Satin finished 3-for-4 with a walk and three doubles. Recently promoted Matt Reynolds finished 3-for-6 with two doubles and an RBI. Travis d'Arnaud struck out as a pinch hitter in the 11th, dipping his Triple-A batting average to .444. Starter Joel Carreno pitched five innings in a no-decision. He allowed three runs on seven hits while striking out two. Box

BOWIE 2, BINGHAMTON 0: Zach Davies tossed seven scoreless innings and the B-Mets mustered three hits as their five-game winning streak ended. Kyle Johnson doubled on the second pitch of the game. He took third on a groundout, but was stranded after Kevin Plawecki lined out and Matt Clark bounced out. B-Mets starter Matt Bowman stumbled in the third. David Adams singled and K.D. Kang walked with two outs. Niuman Romero then produced an RBI single. Following Johnson’s double, Davies retired 10 straight B-Mets. Binghamton threatened to break through against Davies in the fourth. Plawecki reached after getting hit by a pitch and Clark walked. With two on and one out, though, Jayce Boyd sent a line drive to the right side. First baseman Christian Walker snared the drive in the air and fired to second to double off Plawecki, ending the inning. Kang jumped on the first pitch he saw from Bowman in the fifth and cleared the right-field wall for his sixth homer and a 2-0 lead. Davies did not allow another hit after Johnson’s first-inning double. In fact, he prevented the B-Mets from hitting any balls out of the infield. Binghamton had a final threat in the ninth. Brian Burgamy had a leadoff double against Oliver Drake and Plawecki singled. Drake struck out the next two hitters and induced Darrell Ceciliani to ground out to end the game. Bowman (5-5) allowed two runs on eight hits in seven innings. Box

ST. LUCIE 10, JUPITER 6 (8 innings): St. Lucie clubbed 19 hits, one shy of its season high, and won the rain-shortened game. Eudy Pina and L.J. Mazzilli laced two doubles apiece. Pina, Gavin Cecchini and Maikis De La Cruz had three-hit games. Jairo Perez had three RBIs. The Mets tagged Jake Esch for four runs in the second inning. Gilbert Gomez, Pina and Cecchini lined run-scoring doubles in the frame. Jupiter snapped a 39-inning scoreless drought when Domingo Tapia threw a wild pitch that allowed Matt Juengel to score in the second. The Hammerheads cut their deficit to 4-2 on Noah Perio's RBI groundout later in the frame. In the third, De La Cruz put the Mets up 5-2 with his second RBI single. Mazzilli doubled to plate Pina in the fourth and Perez followed with a sac fly to make it 7-2. Mazzilli collected his second RBI double in the eighth, against Brad Mincey. Perez then singled home two runs to put the Mets up 10-4. Colin Moran cut the Hammerheads deficit to four runs with a two-run homer against Seth Lugo in the eighth, but a severe thunderstorm ended any rally chance. Jupiter lost its ninth consecutive game. Tapia (3-6) surrendered three runs on seven hits in five innings. Box

GREENVILLE 7, SAVANNAH 3: Chris Flexen allowed three runs in 5 2/3 innings and Paul Paez surrendered four runs (one earned) in 2 1/3 innings. Colton Plaia went 3-for-4 with a double and RBI in the loss. Plaia and Nelfi Zapata each had errors as Greenville posted a combined six runs in the sixth and seventh innings. Box

KINGSPORT 5, BLUEFIELD 2: Brandon Brosher and Ivan Wilson each had solo homers in a three-run third inning as Kingsport took a 5-0 lead. Starter Yoryi Nuez allowed one run on one hit and two walks in 5 1/3 innings. Box

BROOKLYN 2, ABERDEEN 1: Michael Bernal's solo homer in the fourth broke a 1-all tie. Starter Carlos Valdez allowed one run in five innings. Gaither Bumgardner handled the final four innings, blanking Aberdeen while allowing one hit and one walk and striking out five. Box
