COLORADO SPRINGS 19, LAS VEGAS 5: Starter Chris Schwinden allowed eight runs (four earned) in 3 2/3 innings. Las Vegas committed six errors in the game, including a pair by Omar Quintanilla. Left-hander Adam Kolarek, called up from Binghamton to give help to an overtaxed bullpen, allowed five runs in two innings in his Triple-A debut. Infielder Eric Campbell allowed four runs while pitching the ninth. Travis d'Arnaud had a seventh-inning homer -- his first of the season -- and walked three times in the loss. Wilmer Flores, getting his first start at third base with the 51s after exclusively playing second base, went 3-for-5. Box

PORTLAND 7, BINGHAMTON 4: Luis Mateo, who had been promoted from Class A St. Lucie for a spot start with Cory Mazzoni landing on the disabled list, departed with an

injury after throwing three pitches in the fourth inning. Manager Pedro Lopez told the Binghamton Press & Sun-Bulletin that Mateo had a right forearm/elbow issue and would get an MRI. After Mateo departed, left-hander Shawn Teufel -- the son of Mets' third base coach Tim Teufel -- made his organization debut. Teufel, now a submarine-style reliever, inherited a 3-0 count from Mateo and proceeded to walk Alberto Rosario in the fourth. Rosario, in a run charged to Mateo, ultimately scored on a groundout as Portland built a 4-0 lead. The B-Mets were no-hit through 6 2/3 innings, until Juan Centeno delivered a two-run double. Centeno was ejected from the game by plate umpire Ramon de Jesus in the ninth inning, shortly after Chase Huchingson was charged with the third balk by the B-Mets in the game. Lopez also was ejected. After Huchingson surrendered three runs in the top of the ninth, the B-Mets closed within three runs in the bottom half on run-scoring doubles by Rhyne Hughes and Cesar Puello, but Danny Muno flied out to center field for the final out. Mazzoni officially was placed on the DL with right elbow neuritis. Box

ST. LUCIE 6, CHARLOTTE 3: Pedro Feliciano tossed a scoreless seventh inning in his first minor league game since his return to the Mets. He allowed one hit and one walk while striking out one. Feliciano registered 84-86 mph on the Tradition Field radar gun -- an encouraging sign since he was mosly at 82-83 mph during spring training. Starter Domingo Tapia allowed three runs (two earned) on five hits and a walk while striking out eight in six innings. Trailing 3-0, St. Lucie produced a six-run sixth inning that included a two-run homer by Dustin Lawley. Brian Harrison contributed two RBIs earlier in the frame. Randy Fontanez tossed two no-hit relief innings, striking out four, to earn his first professional save. Box

Nimmo
SAVANNAH 8, GREENSBORO 5: Brandon Nimmo went 3-for-5 with a homer and five RBIs. The 2011 first-round pick lifted his South Atlantic League average to .429. Cole Frenzel added a two-run homer as the Gnats opened an 8-3 lead. Starter Logan Taylor allowed three runs on eight hits and a walk in four innings. Matt Koch was credited with the victory despite allowing a pair of solo homers in four innings. Hunter Carnevale picked up his second save with a perfect ninth. The Gnats' road trip also will take them to Lakewood, N.J., for a four-game series beginning Thursday. Box
