Mets Minor League Roundup 4/30: Wheeler strikes out 8 in win


Mets Minor League Roundup 4/30:

Class AAA - LAS VEGAS 10, RENO 2: Zack Wheeler produced his best line in six starts in the Pacific Coast League: 6.2 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 8 K. Wheeler (1-1) surrendered a first-inning run. He retired 13 of 14 batters during one stretch, with the lone batter reaching during that span coming on a fielding error by second baseman Wilmer Flores. After a two-out walk in the seventh put two runners on base, Wheeler departed with his pitch count at 108. Armando Rodriguez struck out Tyler Bortnick to strand both runners. Wheeler sliced his ERA to 4.80. Andrew Brown had three RBIs. Jamie Hoffmann went 2-for-3 with two walks and two runs scored. Box

Class AA - ERIE 5, BINGHAMTON 6:  BINGHAMTON 6, ERIE 5: The B-Mets blew a pair of two-run leads but prevailed as Danny Muno capped a three-hit game with a go-ahead RBI single in the eighth. Blake Forsythe started the rally by doubling against reliever Blaine Hardy. Muno brought him home by bouncing a line-drive single in front of right fielder Luis Castillo. Given a one-run advantage, Jeff Walters retired all three SeaWolves he faced in the ninth to collect his league-leading eighth save. In a contest pitting two spot-starting southpaws, the B-Mets struck first against Erie starter Matt Crouse. With two aboard, Wilfredo Tovar produced an RBI single. Alonzo Harris doubled the lead with a sacrifice fly. B-Mets starter Mark Cohoon made the lead stand. Making his first start this season and pitching in his first game since April 14, the lefty faced one over the minimum over four scoreless innings.

Erie scratched out its first run in the fifth, against reliever Shawn Teufel. Tyler Collins reached on a fielding error by Tovar and took second on an errant pickoff throw by Teufel. James Robbins brought him in with a single. After Binghamton answered with a run on a David Kopp wild pitch in the fifth, the SeaWolves tied the score in the sixth against Jack Leathersich. A leadoff walk came back to bite the lefty when Collins threaded a game-tying two-run homer over the left-field wall. Forsythe offered a quick rebuttal in the bottom half of the frame. The B-Mets catcher tattooed a 2-2 offering from Kopp over the left-field fence. Joe Bonfe extended the lead with a sac fly. The two-run lead did not last. Leathersich fell into more trouble in the seventh. The SeaWolves loaded the bases on two singles and hit batsman. Hernan Perez provided a sac fly and Ramon Cabrera capped a nine-pitch at-bat with a game-tying RBI single. Chase Huchingson (2-0) entered in the eighth and worked around a two-out double to preserve the tie. Box.

Class A - TAMPA 1, ST. LUCIE 0 (suspended): The game was suspended in the top of the second inning with the Mets trailing, 1-0. That game's resumption, plus the regularly scheduled contest, will be played beginning 11 a.m. Wednesday. Box
