Mets Minor League Roundup 5/17:


Mets AAA - LAS VEGAS 6, EL PASO 4: The Las Vegas 51s won their third straight defeating the El Paso Chihuahuas, 6-4. Las Vegas starter Dana Eveland pitched six innings and struck out 10 Chihuahuas in the win. Both sides made two errors in the early innings, leading to at least one unearned run per team. The score was 5-4 Las Vegas at the end of three innings before the offenses settled down, holding the 5-4 score until Allan Dykstra's eighth inning RBI single. Las Vegas outfielder Cesar Puello went 2-for-3 while reaching two other times on hit by pitches. Former Padres farmhand Brandon Allen had two hits, including a home run off the facing of The Big Dog House building in right field. Jeff Francoeur went 2-for-4 with a double in the loss for El Paso. Francoeur has 18 hits in his last 13 games. Jorge Reyes and Blaine Boyer pitched scoreless outings for El Paso. Box

Mets AA - BINGHAMTON 6, NEW HAMPSHIRE 5: Travis Taijeron doubled twice and Kevin Plawecki drove in two runs in Binghamton’s fourth straight win. Binghamton broke a scoreless tie in the third against Fisher Cats starter Matt Boyd. Taijeron had a leadoff double and Wilfredo Tovar plated him by bouncing a single off Boyd’s foot and up the middle. Following a wild pitch that moved Tovar into scoring position, Brian Burgamy produced an RBI single for a 2-0 lead. Plawecki capped the inning's scoring by singling to right. Burgamy raced home from second, and needed an acrobatic headfirst dive to avoid a tag. B-Mets starter Rainy Lara's scoreless effort ended in the fourth on Ryan Schimpf's solo homer. Lara then retired seven of the next eight batters. Taijeron struck again for the B-Mets in the sixth. With two outs and Jayce Boyd at first, Taijeron smoked a 1-2 pitch from reliever John Anderson off the top of the left-field fence for his second double of the game. Boyd scored from first to give the B-Mets a 4-1 advantage. Schimpf's second solo homer of the game pulled New Hampshire within 4-2 in the sixth. A half-inning later, Binghamton opened a four-run lead. Anderson bounced a pickoff throw to first, prompting Darrell Ceciliani to scamper to second. With the ball still loose, Ceciliani tried for third. Right fielder Matt Newman’s throw hit Ceciliani, enabling him to race home. Cory Vaughn and Plawecki followed by posting back-to-back two-out doubles. Lara was chased from the game in the seventh. With runners at the corners, Peter Mooney stroked an RBI double. Reliever John Church entered and surrendered a run-producing infield single to Jon Berti. Kenny Wilson followed with an RBI groundout, cutting Binghamton’s lead to 6-5. Church intentionally walked Schimpf, then retired A.J. Jimenez. Church added a perfect eighth. Cody Satterwhite struck out two in a 1-2-3 ninth to earn his first save in affiliated baseball since July 23, 2011, when he was a Gulf Coast League Tiger. Lara (4-1) matched a season high with seven strikeouts over 6 1/3 innings. Box


Mets High A - ST. LUCIE 6, LAKELAND 3: Unbeaten Matt Koch allowed two runs on seven hits in 7 1/3 innings en route to his fifth win in his last five starts. The Mets scored four eighth-inning runs to break a 2-all tie. Flying Tigers second baseman Curt Powell booted a ball with one out in the eighth that allowed Maikis De La Cruz to reach safely. Dilson Herrera followed with a double to place two in scoring position. Lakeland intentionally walked Brandon Nimmo to load the bases, but the plan backfired when Florida State League RBI leader T.J. Rivera singled to plate De La Cruz and put the Mets up 3-2. Jairo Perez then drew a bases-loaded walk and Cam Maron lined his third single of the game to plate another run and make it 5-2. Gilbert Gomez capped the frame's scoring on a sac fly. Koch got one out in the bottom of the eighth before surrendering a single and departing. Randy Fontanez recorded the final five outs. The Mets had taken a 1-0 lead in the third when Herrera got caught in a rundown but kept himself alive long enough to allow De La Cruz to score from third. Lakeland made it 1-1 in the fourth when Chad Wright tripled and scored on a wild pitch. James Robbins gave the Flying Tigers a brief lead when he opened the fifth with a homer. The Mets tied the score in the sixth when Herrera doubled and reached home on Perez's two-out single. Herrera went 3-for-5. Maron went 3-for-4. Box

Mets A - CHARLESTON 3, SAVANNAH 1: The Gnats (28-13) had runners on base in each inning, but finished 0-for-15 with runners in scoring position and left 13 men on base. The RiverDogs scored a pair of unearned runs in the first against starter Robert Gsellman, in his return from the disabled list after a three-week absence. Shortstop Gavin Cecchini had a game-opening fielding error. Aaron Judge and Miguel Andujar collected RBI singles later in the frame. Charleston added a run in the fifth against reliever John Mincone, on Michael O’Neill's RBI single. The Gnats scored their lone run in the ninth. Champ Stuart began the inning by beating out an infield single with a dive into first. He advanced to second on Cecchini’s single and scored on Stefan Sabol’s infield tapper. Stuart, in his second game as a Gnat, finished 2-for-5 with a stolen base. L.J. Mazzilli was 3-for-5 to lift his season average to .250. Box
