Mets Minor League Roundup 8/2: T.J. Rivera leads B-Mets to Victory, Savannah sweeps Double header


Mets Minor League Roundup 8/2:


Mets AAA - SACRAMENTO 7, LAS VEGAS 5: The Rivercats broke a 2-all tie and knocked out starter John Lannan during a five-run seventh. Lannan ultimately was charged with six runs on eight hits and three walks in 6 2/3 innings. Taylor Teagarden went 3-for-4 with a ninth-inning solo homer in the loss. Las Vegas rallied for three ninth-inning runs in total, capped by a two-run single by Cesar Puello. The 51s had evened the score in the sixth on Teagarden's RBI single, although Andrew Brown was thrown out at the plate also attempting to score on the play, on a throw from left fielder Shane Peterson.

Mets AA - BINGHAMTON 2, BOWIE 1: T.J. Rivera delivered a tiebreaking RBI single in the bottom of the eighth. That capped his 4-for-4 night, which extended his hitting streak to 10 games. At 67-46, the B-Mets are back at their high-water mark for the season. Bowie took a 1-0 lead in the second with three singles against Rainy Lara. Binghamton was held scoreless by Anthony Vasquez into the sixth. That’s when Brian Burgamy singled with one out. He advanced to second on Rivera's single. Darrell Ceciliani then delivered a bloop hit to plate Burgamy and even the score. The B-Mets broke the tie in the eighth against Steven Hensley. Dilson Herrera walked and reached third on Jayce Boyd's single. Rivera laced a single up the middle to bring home Herrera. Lara and Vasquez each gave up one run on six hits in seven innings in no-decisions. Lara struck out seven and did not walk a batter. Jack Leathersich (3-3) pitched a scoreless eighth to pick up his second straight win. It marked the first time Leathersich has appeared in back-to-back games this season. Cody Satterwhite shut the door in the ninth for his 11th save. He is 11-for-12 in save opportunities. Box



Mets High A - ST. LUCIE 6, CLEARWATER 3: With the score tied at 3 in the top of the eighth, Gavin Cecchini belted a two-out double off the wall in right that scored Gilbert Gomez. Albert Cordero followed with a two-run homer for the three-run margin of victory. Beck Wheeler pitched a scoreless eighth and ninth to earn his eighth save. Dario Alvarez, making his St. Lucie debut, inherited runners at second and third with one out in the sixth and walked the first batter he faced to load the bases. However, he got Herlis Rodriguez to line into an inning-ending double play. That kept the deficit at 3-2. The Mets wasted no time tying the score in their next trip to the plate. With Cordero on third base, Maikis De La Cruz hit a slow chopper that was booted by third baseman Harold Martinez. Cordero scored on the error to make it 3-all. J.P. Crawford led off the bottom of the seventh with a double against Alvarez, but Alvarez (1-0) struck out three to finish his appearance. Cecchini, who went 2-for-3 Friday, matched that output Saturday. Both hits were run-scoring doubles with two outs. Cordero went 2-for-4 and is now 9-for-his-last-19 in a six-game stretch. Jared King had two hits for the third straight game. Starter Matt Koch went 5 1/3 and scattered six hits in a no-decision. He allowed three runs (two earned). Box

Mets Low A - SAVANNAH 5, HICKORY 2
SAVANNAH 8, HICKORY 0: In Game 2, Robert Gsellman tossed a seven-inning shutout to improve to 9-5 and lower his ERA to 2.45. He allowed six hits and a walk while striking out five. It was Gsellman's fourth complete game of the seasons. The Gnats put the game away early with a four-run second inning. Colton Plaia provided the key swing with a three-run double into the right-center gap. Savannah, which drew seven walks in the game, added three runs in the fourth and one run in the fifth. In the opener, the Crawdads scored first with a run in the second inning on Ronald Guzman's single against starter Ricky Knapp. However, the Gnats erased that early lead with a five-run fourth inning, capped by a two-run single by Matt Oberste. Knapp held the Crawdads to two runs in his 5 1/3 innings to earn his fifth win. Box 1, Box 2
