Mets Minor League Roundup 5/13: Vaughn knocks in a pair, Montero gets the win


Mets Minor League Roundup 5/13:

Class AAA - ALBUQUERQUE 5, LAS VEGAS 2: Dylan Owen and Justin Hampson combined to surrender four runs in the seventh. Starter Carlos Torres allowed one run on three hits in six innings. Kirk Nieuwenhuis was hit by a pitch in the first inning in the right knee and departed in the third. Box

Class AA - BINGHAMTON 5, AKRON 2: The B-Mets (20-18) matched a season high with 14 hits. Their scoring began in a three-run third against Matt Packer that included two Akron errors. With runners at the corners, Josh Rodriguez hit a potential double-play ball that went through the legs of third baseman Giovanny Urshela for the first run. Allan Dykstra followed with an RBI single. Cory Vaughn, who returned to left field Sunday after missing time with an elbow injury, capped the inning's scoring when he beat out a potential double-play ball. In the fifth, with two on and two outs, Vaughn laced a run-scoring single for his second RBI. Cesar Puello rounded out the B-Mets' scoring in the sixth with a solo homer, his team-leading fifth long ball. B-Mets starter Rafael Montero settled down after falling behind early. A one-out, first-inning double by Carlos Moncrief gave Akron a 1-0 lead. The Aeroes tacked on their final run in the third, when Justin Toole hit a seeing-eye single past diving shortstop Wilfredo Tovar and into center. Montero ultimately scattered eight hits over six innings and picked up his fourth win. Chase Huchingson contributed two scoreless relief innings. Closer Jeff Walters earned his league-leading 10th save. Box

Class A - BREVARD COUNTY 6, ST. LUCIE 5: Chasen Bradford was charged with four seventh-inning runs. Dustin Lawley and Travis Taijeron had homered in the fifth to give St. Lucie a 4-2 lead. The Mets (22-13) plated one run in the bottom of the ninth, but stranded Aderlin Rodriguez and Taijeron in scoring position when Rylan Sandoval flied out and Cam Maron struck out to end it. Box

Class A - CHARLESTON 5, SAVANNAH 3: Yeicok Calderon hit a game-tying two-run homer against Gnats starter Luis Cessa in the sixth and Reymond Nunez had a two-run shot against reliever Julian Hilario two innings later as Savannah squandered a 3-1 lead. The Gnats (21-14) had jumped on RiverDogs starter Luis Niebla in the top of the second. Maikis De La Cruz led off with a double and scored on Jeff Glenn's single. With the bases loaded and one out, Yucarybert De La Cruz hit a sacrifice fly that scored Cole Frenzel and made it 2-0. Charleston answered with one run in the bottom half of the inning on Peter O'Brien's solo homer. Niebla was relieved in the third inning by Adam Smith. With runners on first and second, Stefan Sabol doubled to left field to score Kevin Plawecki. Box
