Mets Minor League Roundup 4/16: McHugh tosses 5 2/3 innings, Nimmo still on fire


McHugh
Mets Minor League Roundup 4/16:

SACRAMENTO 2, LAS VEGAS 1: Gonzalez Germen surrendered a tiebreaking RBI single to Michael Choice in the seventh for the decisive run. Collin McHugh had limited Sacramento to one run (unearned) on seven hits and three walks while striking out three in a 102-pitch effort spanning 5 2/3 innings. The run against McHugh came after a first-inning error by Wilmer Flores. Flores' single in the fourth plated Juan Lagares (3-for-4) to even the score at 1. Box

BINGHAMTON 7, PORTLAND 3: Portland took an early lead against B-Mets starter Logan Verrett. An RBI double from Tony Thomas in the first and an inside-the-park homer by Heiker Meneses in the second put the Sea Dogs up 2-0. Verrett settled down, though, and allowed one additional hit over his next four innings. He began the seventh inning, but was relieved by Jack Leathersich after surrendering a two-out walk to Peter Hissey. Binghamton's comeback began in the fourth against Portland starter Drake Britton. With two outs, Cory Vaughn singled. Cesar Puello then tripled to put Binghamton on the board. After Danny Muno walked, Britton threw a wild pitch, allowing Puello to score and tie the game. Francisco Pena gave the B-Mets the lead with an RBI double. The game moved quickly until the bottom of the seventh, where it was halted for 37 minutes due to a rain delay. After the break, the B-Mets tacked on four more runs in the eighth to boost their lead to 7-2. Jeff Walters gave up one run in the ninth, but finished the game to earn his third save. Walters recorded his second save of the season that lasted more than one inning (also two innings at Akron on April 4). Right-hander Jacob DeGrom will make his Double-A on Wednesday. Box

ST. LUCIE 13, CHARLOTTE 3: Dustin Lawley belted a grand slam and Aderlin Rodriguez had a solo homer. Cam Maron went 3-for-5 with a triple and three RBIs. Hansel Robles (1-1) allowed three runs (two earned) on four hits and two walks while striking out three in six innings. Estarlin Morel and Wanel Mesa combined for three scoreless relief innings. St. Lucie improved to 9-3. Box

GREENSBORO 9, SAVANNAH 8: Julian Hilario suffered the blown save and the loss after surrendering three runs in the bottom of the ninth inning. Viosergy Rosa delivered the walk-off three-run homer against Hilario. The Gnats had taken the lead with a three-run top of the inning that included Jayce Boyd's sacrifice fly and a tiebreaking two-run homer by Kevin Plawecki. Brandon Nimmo finished 3-for-5 to up his South Atlantic League average to .447. Gnats starter Luis Cessa allowed four runs (one earned) in five innings. The Gnats committed three errors, including a pair by third baseman Cole Frenzel. Box
