Mets Minor League Roundup: 4/7


Mets Minor League Roundup: 4/7

SACRAMENTO 8 LAS VEGAS 4: Sacramento handed the 51s their first loss as a Mets affiliate by posting six runs in the seventh against Dylan Owen and Armando Rodriguez to break a 2-all tie. Michael Choice belted a grand slam and Michael Taylor followed with a homer to chase Owen, who was charged with five runs while recording only two outs. Former Rockie Carlos Torres, who worked as a reliever in spring training with the Mets, started and allowed two runs on five hits and three walks in 5 2/3 innings. Las Vegas had pulled even at 2 in the top of the seventh as Andrew Brown walked, Josh Satin doubled, Zach Lutz had a sacrifice fly and Brian Bixler had an RBI single. The 51s (3-1) added two runs in the eighth against Hideki Okajima, on Reese Havens' sacrifice fly and Wilmer Flores' RBI single. Box

AKRON 13, BINGHAMTON 3: The Aeros scored 12 runs on 13 hits over the final three innings to hand Binghamton its worst loss since a 10-0 defeat against Bowie on July 20, 2012. The B-Mets (3-1) had built a 2-0 lead in the third. Following a hit batsman and balk by Akron starter Paolo Espino, Darrell Ceciliani and Blake Forsythe contributed RBI doubles. The Aeros touched B-Mets starter Tyler Pill for one run over his first five innings. Pill walked Tyler Holt to start his Double-A debut, but settled down to retire nine straight, five via strikeout. Pill’s strong outing unraveled in the sixth. He failed to retire any of the four batters he faced. Jesus Aguilar’s RBI single with the bases loaded
tied the score at 2 and chased Pill. Mark Cohoon inherited the bases loaded and allowed all three to score. Carlos Moncrief gave Akron the lead on a sac fly. Roberto Perez and Giovanny Urshela added RBI singles. After Binghamton cut the deficit to two on Ceciliani’s RBI single in the seventh, the Aeros posted another big inning. The first five batters in the bottom half reached against Cohoon as the Aeros took a 10-3 lead. Akron tacked on three more runs on one hit and two errors in the eighth, against Adrian Rosario and Chase Huchingson. Pill (0-1) was charged with five runs (four earned) on five hits and two walks. The bullpen combined to allow seven inherited runners to score. The B-Mets had five errors, including two by third baseman Richard Lucas. Binghamton’s last five-error game came against the Erie SeaWolves on Aug. 31, 2011. Erik Goeddel makes his B-Mets debut on Monday at Erie. Box


ST. LUCIE 1, JUPITER 0: Catcher Cam Maron held onto a throw from left fielder Dustin Lawley during a plate collision with Austin Barnes for the game's final out. Maron's second-inning double plated Aderlin Rodriguez with the lone run. St. Lucie is off to a 4-0 start. Noah Syndergaard, obtained from the Blue Jays in the R.A. Dickey deal, tossed four scoreless innings in his debut with the organization. Syndergaard limited Jupiter to three hits and a walk while striking out five. He has yet to fully stretch out after being idle for part of spring training with a lat injury. Angel Cuan (1-0) and Chasen Bradford (first save) combined on the nine-hit shutout. Box

SAVANNAH 4, ROME 0: Rainy Lara, Bret Mitchell and Hunter Carnevale combined on a three-hit shutout. Brandon Nimmo, Phillip Evans and Jayce Boyd had three hits apiece and combined to score all four runs. Nimmo, the organization's 2011 first-round pick, is hitting .471 through four games. Boyd, a Florida State product, is hitting .571. The Gnats posted three runs in the third. Nimmo and Evans singled and Boyd walked to load the bases with none out. Kevin Plawecki followed with an RBI single and Stefan Sabol contributed a two-run single. An inning later, Savannah took a 4-0 lead as Nimmo doubled and Boyd plated him with a single. Box
