Mets Minor League Roundup 5/30: Nimmo Out of Lineup with Pinkeye, All Mets Affiliates Lose


Mets Minor League Roundup 5/30:


Mets AAA - EL PASO 4, LAS VEGAS 3: Josh Satin had a two-out RBI triple in the top of the ninth to pull Las Vegas within a run, but was stranded there when Zach Lutz ultimately grounded into a game-ending fielder's choice. Starter Giancarlo Alvarado (1-2) allowed three runs in five innings. Box

Mets AA - NEW BRITAIN 4, BINGHAMTON 0: The B-Mets struck out 14 times, went hitless after the fourth inning and went 0-for-10 with runners in scoring position in their fourth shutout loss of the season. Over the first four innings, Rock Cats starter Sean Gilmartin allowed five hits, walked one and hit a batter, but prevented Binghamton from cracking the scoreboard. He stranded two runners in three straight innings and racked up seven strikeouts along the way. The Rock Cats struck in the fourth against Angel Cuan. Nate Hanson broke a scoreless tie with a bases-loaded sacrifice fly. After a walk reloaded the bases, Mike Kvasnicka produced a three-run double. Gilmartin capped his night with two less-taxing frames, retiring seven of the final eight B-Mets he faced. In six scoreless innings, the southpaw allowed five hits, matched a season high with nine strikeouts and held the B-Mets hitless in seven at-bats with runners in scoring position. Reliever D.J. Baxendale retired all five batters he faced. Ryan O’Rourke fanned Matt Clark to end the eighth inning. Matt Summers allowed the first two to reach in the ninth before closing out the game with two strikeouts. Cuan (1-2) allowed four runs on five hits over five innings in the loss. He struck out a season-high five and issued three walks. Ryan Fraser closed Binghamton’s pitching tab with two scoreless innings. Box



Mets High A - BREVARD COUNTY 3, ST. LUCIE 1: The Mets had no answer for Austin Ross en route to their fourth loss in five games. The Manatees starter surrendered four hits and one run in seven innings. The lone run came on Eudy Pina's sac fly in Ross' final frame and was set up by Gilbert Gomez’s walk and Cole Frenzel's double. The Manatees scored all the runs they needed in the fifth. With two outs, Cameron Garfield belted a two-run double against Matt Koch. Both runs were unearned. Third baseman Jairo Perez had committed an error to open the frame. After throwing 88 pitches through five innings, Koch returned to start the sixth. He surrendered consecutive singles to Yadiel Rivera and Mike Garza to put runners on the corners. Koch got Jose Sermo to ground into a double play, but Rivera scored to make it 3-0. Former Boston Red Sox pitcher Jose De La Torre struck out the side in the eighth for Brevard County. Mark Williams pitched around a two-out error in the ninth by striking out Pina to end the ballgame. 2011 first-round pick Brandon Nimmo will miss three days after developing pinkeye. Box

Mets A - ROME 7, SAVANNAH 6: Blake Brown had a tiebreaking two-run triple in the top of the ninth to help the Braves complete a comeback win. The loss snapped the Gnats’ four-game winning streak. In a 5-all game in the ninth with two outs and nobody aboard, Savannah reliever Tyler Vanderheiden walked two batters in front of Brown, who made him pay with a sharp triple into the right-center gap. The Gnats (35-16) got a run back in the bottom of the ninth when Stefan Sabol doubled home L.J. Mazzilli. However, the game ended with the tying run stranded at second as Matt Oberste grounded out. Savannah had taken a 5-3 lead with three runs in a busy bottom of the fifth. Colton Plaia singled to start the inning and scored on a wild play in which the Braves committed two errors and Gavin Cecchini finished at second. Cecchini then scored the go-ahead run on Jeff McNeil’s double. Dominic Smith singled to score McNeil and gave the Gnats a 5-3 lead. The Braves (16-38) cut the Gnats’ lead to 5-4 on Jake Schrader's solo homer in the seventh against reliever Dawrin Frias. An RBI groundout in the eighth evened the score at 5. McNeil was 2-for-5 to lift his season average to .345. Box
