Mets AAA - LAS VEGAS 5, ALBUQUERQUE 0: Noah Syndergaard tossed two scoreless innings in the regular-season finale to stay sharp for the postseason and departed. He ultimately combined with John Lannan, Giancarlo Alvarado, Jack Leathersich and Gonzalez Germen on a four-hit shutout. L.J. Mazzilli started at second base and went 1-for-5 in his Triple-A debut. Taylor Teagarden went 2-for-4 with solo homer and scored twice. Syndergaard finished 9-7 with a 4.60 ERA in 26 starts. He struck out 145 and walked 43 in 133 innings. Rafael Montero is expected to start Game 1 on Wednesday against Reno. Vegas finished the regular season with an 81-63 record. Box

Mets AA - RICHMOND 12, BINGHAMTON 4: Newly promoted Tim Peterson was knocked out in the first inning in his Double-A debut. He surrendered five runs (four earned) and recorded only one out. The B-Mets stumble into the Eastern Division Championship Series against Portland on a season-high six-game losing streak. Tyler Pill starts Wednesday's playoff opener. Adam Kolarek took over for Peterson and notched the final two outs of the first, then worked a perfect second. His good fortune ended in the third when Clayton Blackburn produced a three-run double in what became a five-run frame as Richmond took a 10-0 lead. The B-Mets (83-59) completed the regular season with their second-highest win total in franchise history. Shortstop Gavin Cecchini (1-for-4) and catcher Cam Maron (1-for-2) collected hits in their Double-A debuts. Box

Mets A - SS - BROOKLYN 3, STATEN ISLAND 1: Despite winning their regular-season finale, the Cyclones were eliminated on the final day of the regular season when Connecticut overcame a three-run deficit to beat Lowell, 9-8.

Brooklyn and Connecticut finished with identical 42-34 records, but the Tigers had the tiebreaker.
