Mets Minor League Roundup 5/2: Plawecki Continues hot hitting


Mets Minor League Roundup 5/2:

Class AAA - RENO 5, LAS VEGAS 1: Collin McHugh surrendered four runs, including a two-run homer by Brad Snyder, in five innings. McHugh (2-2) allowed seven hits, walked two and struck out four as his ERA rose to 3.57 with his second straight loss. Josh Satin started in left field -- his first outfield action in his six pro seasons. The 51s' lone run came in the third on Wilmer Flores' single, which plated Satin to open the game's scoring. Box

Class AA - ERIE 9, BINGHAMTON 1: Erie starter Kyle Lobstein took a no-hitter into the seventh inning. The B-Mets were held to a season-low two hits. The SeaWolves grabbed an early lead, plating the first run of the game three batters in against B-Mets starter Logan Verrett. Daniel Fields singled, stole second and scored on a double from Ramon Cabrera. Erie put the game out of reach with five runs in the fifth. The first four batters singled. Marcus Lemon contributed an RBI single. Two runs came home when Cabrera beat a potential inning-ending double play with the bases loaded. Tyler Collins capped the inning with a two-run homer. Verrett (4-1) was tagged for six runs on eight hits and no walks in six innings in his first Double-A loss. He struck out one -- the fewest in any of his pro starts. Erie kept the offense going against reliever Josh Edgin in the seventh. Hernan Perez tripled and Cabrera walked. Collins then blasted his second homer of the game and fourth of the series to give Erie a 9-0 lead. Binghamton finally ended Lobstein's no-hit bid in the seventh. After a throwing error and a walk put two aboard, Cesar Puello dumped a two-out single into right field. The hit, which extended Puello’s hitting streak to nine games, plated Josh Rodriguez with Binghamton’s lone run. Outfielder Cory Vaughn remained sidelined. He should be out up to a week with elbow soreness. Box



Class A - FORT MYERS 3, ST. LUCIE 2: T.J. Chism walked Levi Michael with one out and the bases loaded to score Kyle Knudson from third in the bottom of the ninth and end the game. Doug Mientkiewicz-managed Fort Myers improved to 22-4. Miguel Sano had a two-out, game-tying single against Mets reliever Randy Fontanez in the eighth to make it 2-2. St. Lucie starter Alex Panteliodis tossed five quality innings, allowing only a solo homer, in his Florida State League debut. Pedro Felicano pitched a scoreless sixth and induced an inning-ending double play on a diving stop by second baseman T.J. Rivera. Feliciano allowed a walk and single. Dustin Lawley ripped a double in the first to score Matt Reynolds and give the Mets a 1-0 lead. Aderlin Rodriguez had a sac fly to score Rivera in the fifth for a 2-1 advantage. Noah Syndergaard starts Friday for St. Lucie. Box

Class A - SAVANNAH 5, KANNAPOLIS 3: After a 92-minute rain delay at the start, the Gnats needed just 2:04 to earn their eighth win in nine games. With losses by Augusta and Asheville, the Gnats are alone in first place for the first time all season. The Gnats took a 4-3 lead in the sixth. Jayce Boyd led off with a sharp one-hopper that shortstop Jean Almanzar booted. Kevin Plawecki drove in Boyd with a double -- his league-leading 16th two-bagger of the year. Trailing 3-0, Savannah had evened the score with a three-run fourth. Eudy Pina and Yucarybert De La Cruz singled to begin the frame. Boyd plated both with his 10th double this season. Boyd scored the tying run on a wild pitch by Kannapolis starter Myles Jaye. The Intimidators built a 3-0 lead through three innings against Savannah starter Gabriel Ynoa, who nonetheless hung in though seven innings for his third win. The Intimidators used a pair of solo homers -- by Brett Tanner leading off the second inning and by Kale Kiser with one out in the third -- to hurt Ynoa. However, the 19-year-old hurler steadied himself and faced the minimum over his final four innings. He struck out eight and did not walk a batter. 2011 first-round pick Brandon Nimmo sat out for a second straight game with mild hand soreness. Box
