Mets Minor League Roundup 5/18: Andrew Brown remains hot for Vegas

Mets Minor League Roundup 5/18:

Class AAA - LAS VEGAS 9, OMAHA 4: Andrew Brown went 2-for-3 with a two-run homer, four RBIs and scored three times. Josh Satin went 3-for-5 and scored twice while upping his average to .313. Catcher Francisco Pena went 0-for-4 with a run scored in his Triple-A debut. Starter Carlos Torres (2-3) allowed four runs on six hits and two walks in six innings. He allowed two homers. Greg Peavey and Sean Henn combined for three no-hit, scoreless relief innings as the 51s (20-20) returned to .500. Satin started at first base, while Brown played right field. Box

Class AA - PORTLAND 10, BINGHAMTON 7: Matt Spring blasted a walk-off grand slam in the ninth as B-Mets closer Jeff Walters suffered his first blown save and Binghamton (23-19) had a five-game winning streak end. Bidding for his 12th save with a 7-6 lead, Walters surrendered consecutive singles to Xander Bogaerts and Tony Thomas. He rebounded with two strikeouts, but walked Shannon Wilkerson. Having already homered in the fourth, Spring took a 1-0 offering from Walters and went deep again, belting the slam. In the first, Daniel Muno led off with his team-leading 27th walk, stole second and scored when Cory Vaughn singled. Similarly, Blake Forysthe walked to start the second, stole second, took third on a passed ball and scored on Wilfredo Tovar’s single for a 2-0 lead. Heiker Meneses answered for the Sea Dogs in the second against Mark Cohoon with a two-out RBI triple. Meneses scored when Cohoon uncorked his first wild pitch of the season. Spring launched a two-run homer in the fourth to give Portland a 4-2 lead. A half-inning later, Josh Rodriguez cut the B-Mets' deficit to one with an RBI single. He then scored on a throwing error by Spring. Portland retook the lead in the sixth against reliever Chase Huchingson. The southpaw paid for hitting Derrik Gibson with an 0-2 pitch when Peter Hissey ripped a tiebreaking triple. Thomas added a solo homer in the seventh. Trailing by two, Binghamton rallied against Brock Huntzinger. With the score 6-5 in the eighth, Huntzinger rebounded to get two outs. But with runners at second and third, Tovar then sent a roller to shortstop. Gibson booted the grounder, allowing the tying and go-ahead runs to score. Shawn Teufel preserved the lead with a scoreless eighth before Walters (0-1) faltered. Binghamton’s last walk-off loss on a homer also came in Portland, on July 20, 2011 (Mitch Dening off John Lujan). Box

Class A - ST. LUCIE 10, BRADENTON 0: Angel Cuan pitched seven scoreless innings and Aderlin Rodriguez had four hits and two RBIs. The Mets (24-16) pounded out 16 hits and snapped a three-game losing streak. Rodriguez had an RBI double in the first to open the scoring. Rylan Sandoval added an RBI single to extend the lead. T.J. Rivera's RBI double in the second gave the Mets a 3-0 lead. Dustin Lawley and Rodriguez hit back-to-back homers in the third. Matt Reynolds and Charley Thurber each had two hits and drove in a run. The Mets had all nine starters record at least one hit. Cuan limited the Marauders to three hits in seven innings while recording six strikeouts and walking one. Estarlin Morel followed with two scoreless innings. Box

Class A - SAVANNAH 3, AUGUSTA 1: Matt Koch (2-2) limited Augusta to one unearned run in six innings and Jake Kuebler and Bret Mitchel combined for three scoreless relief innings. The lone run against Koch came in the first inning, after he surrendered a leadoff single to Jesus Galindo. He advanced to second on a throwing error by second baseman Yucarybert De La Cruz and scored on a pair of groundouts. Kevin Plawecki drove in one run, scored twice and twice was hit by pitches. Savannah (23-17) pulled even in the fourth when Jayce Boyd doubled and scored on Plawecki's single. Two innings later, the Gnats took the lead when Plawecki was hit by a pitch, advanced to third on a pair of errors, then scored on a wild pitch. Plawecki again was hit by a pitch and scored in the eighth. Mitchel earned his seventh save. Box
