Mets Minor League Roundup 5/1: Plawecki hitting .402, Montero gets Bombed

Mets Minor League Roundup 5/1:

LAS VEGAS 14, RENO 8: Andrew Brown and Eric Campbell homered and the 51s pounded out 20 hits. Campbell drove in four runs. Juan Centeno went 4-for-5 with a walk. Reliever Sean Henn surrendered four runs in an inning of work. Box

ERIE 11, BINGHAMTON 4: Rafael Montero (3-2) surrendered a career-high 10 runs and 10 hits and suffered his second straight loss. Seven runs were earned. Shortstop Wilfredo Tovar left the game in the fourth inning, but was ill and not injured, according to the Binghamton Press & Sun-Bulletin. Francisco Pena had two RBIs in the loss. Binghamton grabbed the lead in the second against Erie starter Victor Larez. Blake Forsythe had a leadoff double and scored when Pena doubled. After cruising through the first three innings, Montero stumbled in the fourth. The SeaWolves plated five runs on five hits and took advantage of a fielding error by Josh Rodriguez, who had just moved to second base with Tovar's departure, to take a commanding four-run lead. Tyler Collins supplied an RBI double to tie the score, James McCann added a run-scoring single and Marcus Lemon capped the rally with a two-run triple. Collins padded the lead with a solo homer in the fifth. The SeaWolves blew the game open with four more runs in the seventh, keyed by Ramon Cabrera's three-run single. Binghamton produced two runs against Larez in the seventh, his final inning. Pena started the inning with a double and scored on Joe Bonfe’s groundout. Alonzo Harris added a solo homer. The SeaWolves plated their final run against reliever Adam Kolarek in the eighth. Pena capped a three-hit day with an RBI single in the eighth against Erie reliever Tyler Clark. Box

TAMPA 7, ST. LUCIE 3: In the continuation of Tuesday's suspended game, Marcos Camarena took over for the second inning and was charged with three runs while recording only one out among the six batters he faced. He departed after being struck in the leg with a shot off the bat of Mason Williams. Estarlin Morel, who took over for Camarena and allowed an inherited runner to score, surrendered a two-run homer in the fourth as the Yankees built a 6-1 lead. Rylan Sandoval went 2-for-4 with a walk and two runs score in the loss. Domingo Tapia, who had allowed a run in the first inning Tuesday without the benefit of a hit before the game was suspended, was charged with the loss. Wednesday's regularly scheduled game was postponed by rain. Box

SAVANNAH 6, KANNAPOLIS 3: The Gnats took a 4-3 lead they would not relinquish when Jayce Boyd singled softly into right to bring home Eudy Pina in the fourth. Savannah (16-9) has won seven of the eight games on its homestand to pull into a three-way tie for first place. Savannah extended its lead to two runs in the fifth. With the bases loaded, Phillip Evans rolled a single through the right side to plate Greg Pron. Pina's infield single in the seventh brought home the Gnats' final run. Kevin Plawecki went 3-for-5 with three doubles to lift his season average to .402. He has a league-leading 15 doubles, in 24 games. The Intimidators (16-9) scored two runs in the first against starter Matt Bowman. The Gnats evened the score in the bottom half, keyed by Plawecki's RBI double. The Gnats took a 3-2 lead in the second on Chad Zurcher's sac fly. The Intimidators tied the score at 3 in the third on an RBI single by Ruben Sierra Jr. Bowman found his groove late, retiring 15 of the final 16 batters he faced after a leadoff single in the fourth. He struck out eight and did not walk a batter while becoming the first Gnats pitcher to complete eight innings this season. Box
