May, 14, 2013
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

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

ST. LUCIE 4, BREVARD COUNTY 0: Matt Bowman and T.J. Chism combined on a one-hit

shutout. Bowman (2-0) allowed just a two-out single to left field by Manatees center fielder Chadwin Stang in the third inning. He struck out nine and walked one in seven innings. Bowman retired the final 12 batters he faced and retired the side in order five times. Chism retired all six batters in two scoreless innings, fanning three. The Mets jumped to a lead in the first on a two-run single by shortstop Brandon Hicks, who played in his first game with St. Lucie (23-13) after being sidelined since the end of spring training with a calf injury. Dustin Lawley’s double off the glove of Manatees third baseman T.J. Mittelstaedt scored T.J. Rivera and Hicks in the third. Rivera finished 2-for-4 with two runs scored. Hicks also went 2-for-4. Box

CHARLESTON 3, SAVANNAH 2: Gnats reliever Beck Wheeler entered for the bottom of the ninth with the score tied at 2 and surrendered consecutive singles that placed runners on the corners. After an intentional walk loaded the bases with none out, Kelvin De Leon produced a game-ending sacrifice fly. Savannah had evened the score in the sixth when Kevin Plawecki tripled and scored on Cole Frenzel's single. Gnats starter Gabriel Ynoa limited the RiverDogs to two runs in 6 1/3 innings. Hunter Carnevale tossed 1 2/3 scoreless relief innings. Frenzel drove in both runs for the Gnats (21-15). Box
