By Danny Knobler | Special to ESPNNewYork.com

LAS VEGAS 11, EL PASO 4: Bobby Abreu made his last Triple-A appearance a good one, hitting his first home run of the season. The Mets announced after the game that Abreu will join the big-league team Monday. Abreu's home run was part of a six-run fifth inning for the 51s. Second baseman Danny Muno also homered in the fifth inning, one of his four hits on the day. Right-hander Jacob deGrom got credit for the win, pitching five innings and allowing three runs. DeGrom's consecutive scoreless innings streak ended at 14 2/3 when El Paso scored three times in the top of the fifth. Zack Thornton, acquired for Ike Davis, made his 51s debut. He allowed one run in two innings, on a homer by Kyle Blanks. Jeff Francoeur pitched the eighth inning for El Paso, tossing a no-hit frame. Box
