LAS VEGAS 20, SALT LAKE 8: In his first game action since being designated for assignment by the Mets on June 15, Dillon Gee tossed three scoreless frames before faltering in the fourth. Roger Kieschnick had a two-run homer and Kaleb Cowart had a three-run shot in a six-run inning against Gee. Gee had been staked to a 10-0 lead. Kirk Nieuwenhuis homered twice, giving him five long balls in eight games since joining Las Vegas. Gee ultimately allowed six runs on seven hits, a walk and a wild pitch while striking out two in five innings. He threw 86 pitches, Catcher Dan Rohlfing pitched the final inning. Box

HARRISBURG 2, BINGHAMTON 1: Left fielder Michael Conforto prevented a Harrisburg run by throwing out a baserunner at the plate, but was thrown out himself in the eighth inning as the B-Mets' comeback bid fell short. Harrisburg scored both of its runs in the first inning against Robert Gsellman. Conforto prevented further damage by throwing out Matt Skole at the plate. Binghamton managed four baserunners in the first six innings against Dakota Bacus, but failed to push any past first base. Brandon Nimmo doubled to begin the seventh inning. Eudy Pina then stroked a one-out RBI single to pull the B-Mets within 2-1. Albert Cordero followed by drawing a walk. However, pinch hitter Josh Rodriguez struck out. And with Gavin Cecchini at the plate, Cordero was picked off first base. In the eighth, Conforto singled with two outs. Brock Peterson then drew a walk, ending Bacus' night. Nimmo greeted reliever Bryan Harper with a single. Trying to score the tying run, Conforto was cut down at the plate by right fielder Drew Vettleson. Gsellman (1-4) allowed two runs in six innings. Jon Velasquez tossed two perfect innings in his return to Binghamton. Nimmo extended his hitting streak to 14 games. Box

BRADENTON 4, ST. LUCIE 3: Daniel Murphy, rehabbing a left quad strain, logged seven innings at third base. He went 0-for-3 with a walk. St. Lucie entered the bottom of the ninth trailing 4-2 and had a chance to tie it. Jeff Glenn hit a one-out double and Jeff McNeil followed with a walk. After a long fly out allowed Glenn and McNeil to advance a base, Matt Oberste delivered a run-scoring infield single that pulled the Mets within a run. McNeil crashed into third baseman Wyatt Mathisen en route to third base on the play. No interference call was made, despite a vehement argument by Marauders manager Michael Ryan, who was ejected. However, with McNeil on third, Dominic Smith flied out to end the game. Newly promoted reliever David Roseboom tossed 2 1/3 scoreless innings in his Florida State League debut. Oberste finished with three hits. Box
