Minors 6.18.14: Moore sac fly lifts ’Clones
By Adam Rubin
LAS VEGAS 8, NASHVILLE 2: Logan Verrett allowed two runs (one earned) in 5 1/3 innings. Chasen Bradford, Scott Rice and John Church combined for scoreless relief. Travis d'Arnaud had a pinch-hit two-run double in the seventh to lift his Triple-A average to .410. Omar Quintailla went 2-for-5 with three RBIs. Box
BINGHAMTON 6, RICHMOND 1: Greg Peavey tossed eight strong innings as the B-Mets won for the eighth time in their last nine games. Binghamton hopped on Richmond starter Jack Snodgrass in the second inning. Kevin Plawecki and Dustin Lawley hit back-to-back singles. Following a Travis Taijeron walk, Rylan Sandval doubled in two runs. With two outs, Kyle Johnson then singled, plating Taijeron and Sandoval for a 4-0 lead. Brian Burgamy ended Snodgrass's night with an RBI single. The lefty lasted a season-low 1 1/3 innings and gave up a season-high five runs in suffering his first loss in eight decisions this season. Richmond's lone run scored in the fourth. Myles Schroder tripled off Peavey. The next batter, Ryan Lolis, grounded out to plate Schroder. The B-Mets got that run back in the fifth. Matt Clark, Plawecki and Lawley all singled to load the bases with nobody out. Taijeron then singled to plate a run and extend Binghamton's advantage to 6-1. Peavey (5-1) produced his second-longest outing this season. He allowed one run on five hits in the 104-pitch effort spanning eight innings. He struck out five en route to his fifth win in his last six starts as a B-Met. Cody Satterwhite contributed a perfect ninth. Box
CHARLOTTE at ST. LUCIE (ppd.): St. Lucie's final game of the Florida State League first half was canceled due to unplayable field conditions. The washout did not have a bearing on the race for first place in the FSL South Division. Fort Myers defeated Bradenton, 5-0, later Wednesday to finish a full game ahead of the Mets (40-29) in the standings. The Miracle (41-28) clinched the first-half South title and earned a spot in the postseason in September. Had the Miracle lost to Bradenton, the Mets would have won the South because the two teams would have finished with identical records. The Mets won the head-to-head matchup, 5-1, and had the tiebreaker. All 12 teams in the FSL will reset their records to 0-0 when the second half begins Thursday. Five players were promoted to Double-A Binghamton after the half's completion: Brandon Nimmo, Steven Matz, Dilson Herrera, Randy Fontanez and T.J. Rivera.
BROOKLYN 4, HUDSON VALLEY 3 (10 innings): In the 10th, a pair of Hudson Valley fielding errors put Joe Tuschak and Amed Rosario on the corners with nobody out. Tyler Moore took advantage of the scoring opportunity, lofting a tiebreaking sacrifice fly to left field that plated Tuschak. Left-hander Shane Bay pitched a scoreless bottom half to collect his first save. Jhoan Urena sent the game to extra innings with a ninth-inning solo homer. Rosario had a solo homer in the first inning. Box
