Mets Minor League Roundup 4/9: Syndergaard Loses in Vegas


Mets Minor League Roundup 4/9:


Mets AAA - SACRAMENTO 7, LAS VEGAS 4:  Noah Syndergaard allowed four runs (three earned) on six hits and two walks in five innings. He struck out two in a 91-pitch effort that included 61 strikes. He took the loss (1-1). Eric Campbell hit a 2-run HR, Cesar Puello had two hits in the loss.  Box

Mets AA - BINGHAMTON 7, ERIE 2: Matt Bowman struck out the side in the first and ultimately tossed five strong innings in his Double-A debut and Wilfredo Tovar produced a three-RBI game to lead the B-Mets to their third straight victory. Facing Jeff Ferrell, Cory Vaughn opened the bottom of the second with a single, stole second, moved to third on a groundout and scored when Tovar singled. Bowman's only blemish came in the fourth, when he surrendered an RBI single to Ramon Cabrera, tying the score at 1. Binghamton used a two-out rally to break the tie in the fifth. Kevin Plawecki chased Ferrell with a single. Matt Crouse entered, and Jayce Boyd lofted Crouse’s second pitch into the right-field corner for a go-ahead RBI double. Darrell Ceciliani plated Boyd with a single. The B-Mets added to their lead without collecting a hit in the sixth. Matt Reynolds reached second on a throwing error by third baseman Francisco Martinez, took third on a flyout and scored on Kyle Johnson’s sac fly. Binghamton put the game away with three runs in the seventh against Keith Faulk. Travis Taijeron ripped an RBI double and Tovar blooped a two-run single inside the right-field line. Bowman (1-0) went five innings. He allowed one run on three hits while striking out four. John Church posted two scoreless relief innings. T.J. Chism surrendered a run in the eighth. Jack Leathersich closed out the victory with a scoreless ninth. Box



Mets High A - ST. LUCIE 5, JUPITER 2: St. Lucie, which snapped a four-game losing streak, scored three runs in the third -- ending a 23-inning scoreless drought. Dilson Herrera led off the frame with a single and Brandon Nimmo followed with a walk. Jairo Perez put the Mets on the board with a single. Aderlin Rodriguez grounded out to plate Nimmo. Cam Maron capped the inning with an RBI double. That was enough for starter Matt Koch, who scattered eight hits and two runs in six innings. Koch retired eight in a row between the second and fifth innings. The Mets added to their 3-0 lead in the fifth when Rodriguez grounded into a double play but scored Nimmo from third. Ross Wilson put the Hammerheads on the board with a two-out, run-scoring single in the bottom half. Jupiter pulled within 4-2 in the sixth when Austin Barnes doubled and Viosergy Rosa singled him home with two outs. However, Koch settled down to get Matt Juengel to fly out to end inning and complete his outing. The Mets got the run back in the seventh on a Herrera's RBI hit. Randy Fontanez pitched two scoreless relief innings, striking out five. Beck Wheeler walked two batters in the ninth, but he struck out Ryan Goetz on a full-count offering and induced a harmless fly ball from Wilson to end the game. Perez and Herrera collected two hits apiece. Nimmo had a hit and walked twice. He has now reached base safely in all six games. Box

Mets A - AUGUSTA 8, SAVANNAH 3: Savannah starter Ricky Knapp cruised through the first two innings on 19 pitches. However, the first two batters in the third reached on singles. Then, shortstop Gavin Cecchini allowed a potential double-play grounder to scoot by him for an error. A walk, a two-run single and a walk later and the GreenJackets had a 3-0 lead and the bases loaded, ending Knapp’s night. He would eventually be charged with six runs (three earned) in 2 1/3 innings. Reliever John Mincone entered with one out in what became an eight-run inning. The Gnats (3-3) scored their only runs in the sixth. Cecchini plated Colton Plaia with a line-drive single for the first run. Later in the inning, L.J. Mazzilli ripped a single through the left side, driving in two runs. Jared King went 2-for-3 with a walk for the Gnats. Savannah reliever Akeel Morris was electric over three innings. After walking the first batter he faced, he struck out nine of the next 10 batters. In the eighth, Morris fanned four batters. His first victim of that frame, Christian Paulino, reached on a wild pitch. Box
