Mets Minor League Roundup 7/11: Bowman gets his first Vegas Win

Mets Minor League Roundup 7/11:

Mets AAA - LAS VEGAS 8, ALBUQUERQUE 1 - ALBUQUERQUE 5, LAS VEGAS 2: In Game 1, Las Vegas right-hander Matthew Bowman recorded his first Triple-A victory. He allowed one run on seven hits and two walks in six innings. The 51s built an 8-1 lead after four innings. Matt den Dekker went 3-for-4 with a double and two runs scored. Allan Dykstra was 2-for-3 with a three-run triple in the fourth inning. In the nightcap, starter Greg Peavey allowed four runs in 4 1/3 innings. Ex-Met Mike Baxter capped the scoring with a solo homer. Box 1, Box 2

Mets AA - ERIE 7, BINGHAMTON 3: Four B-Mets errors led to three unearned runs as a four-game winning streak ended. Erie grabbed the lead against Rainy Lara in the first. Following consecutive singles, Daniel Fields sent a potential double-play ball to third. It rolled under Dustin Lawley’s glove for an error. Runner Jamie Johnson collided with Lawley on his way to third and was tagged out after stopping between third and home when he incorrectly thought the play had been ruled dead. With runners at the corners, ensuing batter Steven Moya lifted a sacrifice fly for a 1-0 lead. The B-Mets flirted with cracking the scoreboard in the fourth against Kyle Ryan. Travis Taijeron pulled a two-out single into left. T.J. Rivera attempted to score from second, but Johnson gunned him down. After surrendering four hits to the first seven batters he faced, Lara settled in. He stranded two in the second, starting a stretch in which he retired 11 of 12. Lara's run ended in the sixth when the SeaWolves loaded the bases. Lara then uncorked a two-out wild pitch, prompting Devon Travis to dash home with Erie’s second run. Catcher Xorge Carrillo’s toss to the plate sailed past Lara and allowed Steven Moya to also scamper home. Dixon Machado capped the three-run inning with an RBI double as Erie took a 4-0 lead.

Mets Minor League Roundup 5/14: Bowman and Chism combined one hit shutout for St.Lucie

Mets Minor League Roundup 5/14:

Class AAA - ALBUQUERQUE 8, LAS VEGAS 5: Chris Schwinden hit leadoff batter Matt Angle, then walked No. 2 batter Alfredo Amezaga to open the game. He ultimately surrendered four first-inning runs and the 51s (18-19) never dug out from the deficit. Schwinden (2-4) was charged with five runs in five innings. Las Vegas pulled within 4-2 in the second as Eric Campbell delivered an RBI triple and scored on an error. Collin Cowgill's fifth-inning RBI single pulled the 51s within 5-3. Reliever Greg Peavey surrendered two runs in the sixth. Wilmer Flores had a run-scoring double and Zach Lutz (3-for-4) had an RBI single in the ninth against Peter Moylan, but Campbell struck out with Andrew Brown at second base to end it. Box

Class AA - BINGHAMTON 7, AKRON 3: The B-Mets (21-18) batted around and scored four runs in the eighth to break a 3-all tie. The inning consisted of three hits, four walks and two Akron wild pitches. After Wilfredo Tovar was thrown out at second base trying to stretch a leadoff hit into a double, Trey Haley struggled to find the strike zone. Haley walked the next three batters. Allan Dykstra then hit a groundball to first baseman Chun Chen. After Chen hesitated to throw home, it was too late to retire Dykstra and everybody was safe. Cory Vaughn followed with a broken-bat infield hit to give Binghamton a 5-3 lead. Two more wild pitches from the Akron bullpen pushed the lead to four. Against B-Mets starter Logan Verrett, Chen hit a two-run single for an early 2-0 lead. After getting out of a bases-loaded jam in the second inning, however, Verrett settled down. He retired 16 of his final 18 batters and threw seven innings in a no-decision. The only other damage against the righty came in the fifth, when Kyle Bellows hit a solo homer to put Akron ahead, 3-0. With two men on base against Paolo Espino in the bottom of that frame, Tovar singled home Vaughn for the first B-Mets run. Danny Muno then tied the score with a two-run double. Jack Leathersich (1-0) earned his first Double-A victory. The lefty threw two scoreless innings. Box
