Mets Minor League Roundup 5/4:

Class AAA - SACRAMENTO 11, LAS VEGAS 7: In his second 51s start, D.J. Mitchell surrendered seven first-inning runs, although only three were earned because of a one-out throwing error by third baseman Eric Campbell. Las Vegas rallied to tie the score at 7 in the fourth on an RBI double by Josh Satin and run-scoring single by Wilmer Flores. Dylan Owen suffered the loss in relief when he surrendered a tiebreaking solo homer to Scott Moore. Collin Cowgill went 1-for-4 with a walk and a throwing error in his Las Vegas debut. Cowgill started in left field, with Kirk Nieuwenhuis remaining in center. Flores finished 2-for-5 with three RBIs. Campbell had a pair of doubles and two RBIs in three at-bats. Box

Class AA - BINGHAMTON 8, HARRISBURG 2: The B-Mets broke a tie with a three-run fourth and four pitchers combined to retire the final 19 Senators hitters. Darrell Ceciliani had three hits, drove in three and scored three times. Richard Lucas had three hits and two RBIs. Facing Harrisburg starter Paul Demny, Alonzo Harris opened the game with a double and scored when Lucas singled. Binghamton took a 2-0 lead on Allan Dysktra's run-scoring groundout in the third. B-Mets starter Erik Goeddel sailed through a pair of innings before laboring through the third. The righty allowed two hits, walked two and surrendered a pair of runs in the 39-pitch frame. Anthony Rendon’s 11-pitch plate appearance ended with a walk and set the stage for Jerad Head’s game-tying two-run single. After Demny walked Goeddel with two outs in the fourth and Rendon misplayed Harris’ chopper, Ceciliani had a two-run single to give Binghamton the lead for good. Lucas tacked on with an RBI double. Head’s hit in the third proved to be Harrisburg’s final baserunner. Goeddel (2-2) retired the final 10 batters he faced. He allowed two runs on three hits and fanned four over six innings to end his four-game winless streak. Joe Bonfe delivered a pinch-hit run-scoring single in the eighth and Ceciliani crushed his first homer of the season, a solo shot, in the ninth. Cesar Puello added a run-producing fielder’s choice. Relievers Adam Kolarek, Josh Edgin and Jeff Walters contributed scoreless frames. The bullpen has retired the last 23 batters it has faced over the three games. Box
