Mets Minor League Roundup 4/27: Verrett has good night


Mets Minor League Roundup 4/27:

Class AAA - TACOMA 8, LAS VEGAS 2: Tacoma put up five runs in the first inning against Collin McHugh, who allowed six straight hits to open the game. McHugh subsequently retired 16 straight batters, though. He tossed seven innings, ultimately allowing no further damage. Kirk Nieuwenhuis had a solo homer in the first off Jeremy Bonderman. Andrew Brown later had a solo homer. Box

Class AA - BINGHAMTON 7, AKRON 2: 2011 third-round pick Logan Verrett from Baylor allowed two runs on two hits in eight innings. He retired the final 11 hitters he faced, and 21 of his last 22, to earn his Eastern League-leading fourth victory. Alonzo Harris homered over the left-field wall to open the bottom of the first. Harris went 2-for-5 and extended his hitting streak to 10 games. Akron’s Chris Wallace matched Harris with a solo shot against Verrett to open the second. The B-Mets produced single runs in each of the first four innings against left-hander Matt Packer. The Aeros responded with a sacrifice fly by Giovanny Urshela in the fifth, but Binghamton answered. In the sixth, Allan Dykstra hit a sac fly to score Harris and Blake Forsythe blew the game open with a two-run double to give Binghamton a 7-2 lead. Richard Lucas departed the game after pulling up lame while running out an eighth-inning groundout. Manager Pedro Lopez told the Binghamton Press & Sun-Bulletin the injury appeared just a cramp. He was replaced by Josh Rodriguez for the ninth. Box

Class A - ST. LUCIE 13, BRADENTON 5: Starter Marcos Camarena surrendered five runs in 3 2/3 innings, but St. Lucie overcame a 6-5 deficit with a six-run fifth. Charley Thurber added a three-run homer in the sixth and finished with four RBIs. Aderlin Rodriguez was 3-for-4 with a pair of doubles, two runs scored, an RBI and walk. Estarlin Morel, Randy Fontanez and Wanel Mesa combined for 5 1/3 scoreless relief innings. Box

Class A - SAVANNAH 1, WEST VIRGINIA 0: Starter Rainy Lara tossed 7 1/3 scoreless innings. He limited the Power to five hits while striking out nine and walking none. The lone run came in the fifth, when Stefan Sabol singled, advanced to third on Yucarybert De La Cruz's single and scored on Phillip Evans' fielder's choice groundout. Bret Mitchell combined with Lara (3-1) on the six-hit shutout. Mitchell recorded the final five outs for his second save. Box
