Mets Minor League Roundup: 4/6/13



Mets Minor League Roundup: 4/6/13

LAS VEGAS 6, SACRAMENTO 1: Collin McHugh limited Sacramento to one run on four hits and a walk while striking out seven in 5 1/3 innings as the 51s improved to 3-0. Robert Carson and Greg Peavey combined for 3 2/3 innings of scoreless relief. Josh Satin had a two-run homer against reliever Pedro Figueroa and Jamie Hoffmann was 3-for-3 with an RBI. Box

BINGHAMTON 7, AKRON 5: In their Double-A debuts, 2011 third-round pick Logan Verrett took a scoreless effort into the seventh and Blake Forsythe had three RBIs and finished a homer shy of the cycle. Binghamton (3-0) is off to the franchise’s best start since 2000 and is the Eastern League's lone remaining unbeaten team. Facing Matt Packer in the first inning, Darrell Ceciliani tripled and scored on Josh Rodriguez’s single. Then, in a three-run fourth, Cory Vaughn had an RBI triple. Danny Muno caught a break when right fielder Carlos Moncrief lost his fly ball in the sun, leading to an RBI double. Forsythe capped the inning with an RBI single. Binghamton stretched the lead to 5-0 on a fielding error by third baseman Giovanny Urshela in the fifth. Verrett faced two over the minimum through six innings, retiring 12 straight at one point. His scoreless effort got derailed in the seventh when Jesus Aguilar produced a two-run homer. Verrett exited after walking Chun Chen. John Church entered and surrendered an RBI single to Urshela, but struck out Tyler Holt to strand two runners, including the potential tying run. Binghamton restored a four-run cushion a half-inning later when Forsythe stroked a two-run triple against reliever Eric Berger. Adam Kolarek contributed a scoreless eighth. Adrian Rosario walked the leadoff man in the ninth and surrendered a two-run homer to Quincy Latimore. Tyler Pill makes his Double-A debut Sunday as the B-Mets attempt the four-game sweep. Box



ST. LUCIE 6, JUPITER 1: Jacob deGrom tossed six scoreless innings as St. Lucie improved to 3-0. T.J. Rivera and Matt Reynolds drove in two runs apiece. Reynolds' sixth-inning infield single scored Rivera with the game's opening run. St. Lucie opened a 6-0 lead the following frame. Box

ROME 6, SAVNNAH 3: In his first regular-season game since last July 26 with Kingsport, left-hander Steven Matz took a scoreless effort into the fifth inning. Rome's Aris Alcantara then doubled and Tyler Tewell walked to open that frame and Matz departed. Jake Kuebler, a former corner infielder in the Royals organization, entered and allowed both inherited runners to score, snapping Matz's personal scoreless streak at 22 innings dating to last season. Kuebler later surrendered a three-run homer to Josh Elander in what became a five-run frame as Rome took a 5-3 lead. Savannah catcher Jeff Glenn went 2-for-2 with a pair of doubles, two RBIs and two walks in the loss. Box
