Mets Minor League Roundup 8/22: Whalen throws seven scoreless for Kingsport, Alvarado throws 7 2/3 innings for Vegas in shutout


Mets Minor League Roundup 8/22:


AAA - LAS VEGAS 5, FRESNO 0: Carlos Alvarado tossed 7 2/3 scoreless innings and combined with Robert Carson on a six-hit shutout. Zach Lutz drove in three runs as the 51s improved to 74-57. Box

AA - AKRON 7, BINGHAMTON 3: A day after clinching their first division title since 2000, the B-Mets committed four errors and allowed a season-high five unearned runs. The Aeros lashed out 14 hits, including five in a four-run first inning. Jose Ramirez led off with a single against Mark Cohoon. Ramirez took off for second as Tyler Naquin bounced a grounder to second base. Screened, Josh Rodriguez booted the grounder, putting runners on the corners. Cedric Hunter put the Aeros on the board with an RBI single. Cohoon then coaxed a double play from Jesus Aguilar, but could not silence the Aeros. Carlos Moncrief and Tyler Holt singled. Binghamton trapped Holt in a rundown, but Rodriguez fumbled a toss from Allan Dykstra, allowing Moncrief to score. Right fielder Travis Taijeron capped the forgettable inning by misreading a fly ball, handing an RBI double to Ronny Rodriguez.

The B-Mets' tribulations continued in the second. Alex Monsalve reached when Dykstra booted a chopper to first. Monsalve took second on a single, advanced to third on a fielder’s choice and scored when Hunter singled. Akron starter Toru Murata cruised through five innings, facing two over the minimum to preserve a 5-0 lead. Binghamton cracked the scoreboard in the sixth. After Wilfredo Tovar’s leadoff single, Alonzo Harris tripled, his first three-bagger as a B-Met. Cory Vaughn followed Rodriguez’s walk with a run-scoring fielder’s choice, cutting Akron’s lead to three. With one out, Kyle Crockett entered and walked the first batter he faced, allowing the B-Mets to bring the tying run to the plate. But the southpaw ended the threat by fanning Taijeron and inducing Blake Forsythe to ground out. Akron restored the lead to five with two runs on four hits and one error in the sixth against reliever Ryan Fraser. Binghamton plated its final run in the seventh, when Richard Lucas walked and scored. Cohoon (9-4) was tagged for five runs (one earned) on nine hits in five innings in his first loss since June 5.
