LAS VEGAS 8, ALBUQUERQUE 3: Kevin Plawecki contributed a two-run homer and Cory Mazzoni allowed two runs in 5 2/3 innings. Albuquerque committed six errors, leading to four unearned runs. Box

BINGHAMTON 3, HARRISBURG 1: Rainy Lara tossed 7 2/3 scoreless innings and Brian Burgamy went 2-for-4 with two RBIs and extended his hitting streak to a season-high 13 games. In his return to the lineup three days after suffering a jammed finger on a slide, Dilson Herrera hit a first-inning solo homer against John Simms. The B-Mets added to that total in the third. Lara and Brandon Nimmo, who was starting for the first time since Sunday, hit back-to-back singles to put two on with nobody out. After a fly out, Burgamy smacked a two-run double for a 3-0 lead. Harrisburg finally got on the scoreboard in the ninth against Cody Satterwhite. Jason Martinson made it all the way to third base on an error by right fielder Darrell Ceciliani. Martinson scored on Adrian Sanchez's pinch-hit single. Lara (6-4) has has allowed one run in 14 2/3 innings over his last two starts. Satterwhite notched his 13th save. Binghamton starting pitchers have allowed three earned runs over the last seven games. Nimmo, who had been sidelined with a hand injury, went 2-for-4 and scored a run. Box

ST. LUCIE 4, BRADENTON 3: Eudy Pina scored on a wild pitch as St. Lucie earned a walk-off win. Pina had worked a four-pitch walk against Bryton Trepagnier to open the frame. Gilbert Gomez bunted him to second, and Pina advanced to third on Jeff McNeil’s groundout. Then, on a 1-1 pitch to Maikis De La Cruz, Trepagnier skipped a fastball wide of catcher Jacob Stallings. The Mets had taken a 3-2 lead into the ninth inning, but Stallings hit a one-out solo homer against Beck Wheeler. Earlier, Jeff McNeil, De La Cruz and L.J. Mazzilli opened the first inning with singles to load the bases. However, the Mets only came away with one run, on Phillip Evans’ bloop single. Mets starter Matt Koch maintained the 1-0 lead into the fifth. That frame, he walked Justin Maffei to load the bases, then plunked Adam Frazier to force in the tying run. With the bases reloaded, Walker Gourley hit a sac fly that gave the Marauders a 2-1 lead. However, the Mets scored two runs in the bottom half to take a 3-2 lead. Cam Maron's single plated McNeil. Evans later beat out a potential inning-ending double play that allowed Mazzilli to score the go-ahead run. Koch went six innings and surrendered two runs. He walked two, hit two and struck out a season-high-matching six. Box

SAVANNAH 9, AUGUSTA 2
AUGUSTA 3, SAVANNAH 1: In Game 1, 2013 first-round pick Dominic Smith produced an RBI double in the sixth that evened the score at 2. Jeff Glenn added a three-run triple later in that five-run frame. Smith had a two-run homer in the seventh that capped the scoring. It was Smith's first 2014 long ball. Starter Ricky Knapp contributed a seven-inning complete game to even his record at 6-6. After five scoreless innings from starter Robert Gsellman in Game 2, Augusta posted three runs in the sixth against Bret Mitchell. Box 1, Box 2

KINGSPORT 5, BRISTOL 4: Jean Rodriguez had a first-inning homer and finished 3-for-4 as the K-Mets built a 5-0 lead and held on. Rodriguez and Zach Mathieu drove in two runs apiece. Former Pirates farmhand Blake Taylor allowed three runs on six hits and five walks in three innings. David Roseboom converted his second save despite allowing two hits in the ninth. Box

BATAVIA 4, BROOKLYN 2: Starter Marcos Molina, one of six Cyclones All-Star selections earlier in the day, allowed four runs on eight hits while striking out 11 in six innings. Molina's ERA swelled to 1.78. Also chosen for the Aug. 19 game, which will be played in Brooklyn: shortstop Amed Rosario, third baseman Jhoan Urena, right-hander Corey Oswalt, left-hander Shane Bay and outfielder Michael Bernal. Box

GCL CARDINALS 6, GCL METS 2: Starter Darwin Ramos and reliever Joel Huertas allowed three runs apiece as the Cardinals built a 6-0 lead. Dale Burdick, a 40th-round pick out of high school in Tennessee in June, produced his first professional homer in the loss. Box

SEATTLE

FIRST PITCH: After stops in San Diego and Seattle, the Mets now move further east as they begin a four-game series against the NL Central-leading Milwaukee Brewers on Thursday night at Miller Park.

Milwaukee is coming off a sweep of the Cincinnati Reds.

Dillon Gee (4-2, 2.92 ERA) opposes right-hander Matt Garza (6-7, 4.04) in the 8:10 p.m. ET series opener.

Read the Mets-Brewers series preview here.

Thursday’s news reports:

Bartolo Colon retired the first 20 batters he faced before surrendering a seventh-inning single to Robinson Cano and the Mets held on to beat the Mariners, 3-2, in Wednesday’s rubber game. The Mets are very open to dealing Colon before next Thursday’s non-waiver trade deadline, although they will need to locate a partner willing to accept the $11 million he is owed next season. Because of the size of Colon’s contract, he likely will remain eligible to be traded in August.

Read game recaps in the Seattle Times, Post, Daily News, Times, Star-Ledger, Record, Newsday, Journal and at MLB.com.

Ruben Tejada was beaned by a fastball from Mariners rookie Taijuan Walker in the fifth inning. Terry Collins said Tejada displayed no concussion symptoms and indicated no roster move was forthcoming. Tejada accompanied the team on its flight to Milwaukee. Still, Eric Campbell may start the series opener in Milwaukee at shortstop to give Tejada one day off. It would mark Campbell’s first major league start at shortstop, and his fifth professional game overall -- majors or minors -- at the position. Read more in the Post, Daily News, Newsday, Star-Ledger and at MLB.com.

• Under-the-weather Curtis Granderson missed a second straight game Wednesday. It is not yet clear if he will be available for the series opener against the Brewers because of continued flu-like symptoms.

• Columnist John Harper in the Daily News suggests Troy Tulowitzki is not a fit for the Yankees or the Mets. "[Sandy] Alderson’s priority has been building depth into the farm system," a GM told Harper. "So he wouldn’t give up multiple prospects, especially for that type of risk, regardless of whether ownership would take on the contract -- which seems unlikely."

• Right-handed reliever Buddy Carlyle, who lost his major league roster spot when Jonathon Niese was activated from the disabled list on Monday, cleared waivers and accepted an assignment to Las Vegas.

• Steven Matz allowed two runs in seven innings and Binghamton beat Portland, 4-2. Rob Whalen earned the win in his first Savannah start since May 1 as the Gnats beat Augusta, 7-2. Dale Burdick’s sacrifice fly broke an eighth-inning tie and the GCL Mets won, 9-6, against the GCL Nats. Read the full minor-league recap here.

TACOMA 6, LAS VEGAS 4: Cory Mazzoni allowed six runs (four earned) on five hits and five walks in 3 2/3 innings. Wilmer Flores and Allan Dykstra homered in a three-run third as the 51s took a 3-1 lead. Flores finished with three RBIs. With Vegas trailing by two runs, Danny Muno doubled with one out in the ninth and Juan Centeno singled. After Cesar Puello flied out, Matt den Dekker then walked to load the bases. However, Josh Satin flied out for the final out. Box

BINGHAMTON 4, PORTLAND 2: Steven Matz (4-1) limited the Sea Dogs to two runs on

seven hits and a walk in seven innings and the B-Mets avoided a three-game sweep. Sean Coyle had a solo homer against Matz in the second inning, but the B-Mets responded a half-inning later against Binghamton University product Mike Augliera as Rylan Sandoval had a leadoff homer. It was Sandoval’s first long ball of the season. Binghamton took the lead in the fourth as T.J. Rivera doubled and eventually scored on Jayce Boyd's single. That advantage swelled to 4-1 in the fifth. Dilson Herrera singled and stole second. Brian Burgamy then singled to place runners on the corners. Travis Taijeron followed with a run-scoring double. Rivera skied a sacrifice fly to center to plate Burgamy. Portland cut the deficit to two runs in the sixth as rehabbing Ryan Lavarnway, Michael Almanzar and Dave Chester all singled. Randy Fontanez and Cody Satterwhite each contributed a scoreless frame in relief. Satterwhite notched his ninth save. Burgamy finished 4-for-5 with two doubles and a run scored. Portland won the season series over the B-Mets, 11-9. Box

TAMPA 13, ST. LUCIE 6: Gavin Cecchini blasted a three-run homer in a five-run first inning, but the Yankees overcame the deficit to complete a four-game sweep. Mets starter Michael Fulmer cruised through the first three innings, allowing one hit and striking out five. His outing unraveled in the fourth. Greg Bird singled, Dante Bichette Jr. reached on L.J. Mazzilli’s error and Fulmer hit Eric Jagielo on the foot with an 0-2 pitch to load the bases. Fulmer threw a wild pitch that allowed Bird to score and walked Aaron Judge to reload the bases. Angelo Gumbs then singled to make it 5-2. With the bases again loaded, Trent Garrison had a two-run single. Jose Rosario followed with an RBI single to even the score. After Danny Oh struck out and Cito Culver walked, Fulmer was replaced by Jake Kuebler. Bird came up for the second time in the inning and produced a sac fly to put the Yankees ahead. Bichette followed with an RBI single to make it 7-5. Judge finally grounded out to end the fourth. Kuebler stayed in to pitch the fifth, but the Yankees got to him. Kuebler fielded Rosario’s bunt attempt with two runners on but threw the ball over the head of Mazzilli covering first base to allow a run to score. Later in the frame, Gilbert Gomez dropped a fly ball hit to center that allowed two more runs to score as the Yankees took a 12-5 lead. The Mets committed five errors in the game. Fulmer was charged with seven runs (four earned) in 3 1/3 innings. Box

Whalen
SAVANNAH 7, AUGUSTA 2: Rob Whalen (5-0) limited Augusta to two runs in 5 2/3 innings in his first South Atlantic League start since May 1. He missed more than two months recovering from an infection in his pitching hand that needed to be surgically cleaned. Miller Diaz tossed three scoreless innings and was credited with his second save. Matt Oberste extended his hitting streak to 21 games with a ninth-inning solo homer. Jonathan Johnson had two RBIs. Victor Cruzado went 2-for-3 with two walks and two runs scored. Box

GREENEVILLE 6, KINGSPORT 3 (10 innings): Jimmy Duff was charged with three runs (two earned) in the top of the 10th. Third baseman Eudor Garcia had a fielding error in the frame. Box

ABERDEEN 5, BROOKLYN 2: Starter Casey Meisner allowed three runs (two earned) in one inning. Amed Rosario went 3-for-4 with a triple and Michael Conforto went 2-for-4 with a double in the loss. Jhoan Urena drove in two runs. Box

GCL METS 9, GCL NATIONALS 6: Dale Burdick's eighth-inning sacrifice fly broke a 6-all tie. Hengelbert Rojas added a two-run single in the ninth. John Mora, Arnaldo Berrios, Rojas and Burdick had two RBIs apiece. Box

Morning Briefing: On the road again

June, 26, 2014

AM ET
NEW YORK

FIRST PITCH: After a two-game homestand, the Mets return to the road.

The Amazin’s open a four-game series at Pittsburgh, with Daisuke Matsuzaka (3-1, 2.68 ERA) opposing right-hander Vance Worley (1-0, 1.98) at 7:05 p.m. Thursday at PNC Park. The Mets also make a stop at Atlanta during the trip.

Juan Lagares, who had been on the disabled list with a strained intercostal muscle on his right side, will be activated for the series opener.

The Mets optioned lightly used Wilmer Flores (.225, 1 HR, 7 RBIs) to Triple-A Las Vegas to clear the roster spot. That means Ruben Tejada will be leaned on heavily at shortstop, since the Mets do not have a bona fine backup on the major league roster.

Eric Campbell has played only two pro games at shortstop -- both this season with Vegas. David Wright fancies himself a shortstop and can be used there in a pinch, but it would be hard to foresee him ever getting a start there. (Jacob deGrom, who has a .333 average, played shortstop in college at Stetson.)

The Mets will now have seven active outfielders, if you’re liberal in your counting: Curtis Granderson, Lagares, Chris Young, Eric Young Jr., Kirk Nieuwenhuis, Bobby Abreu and, at least in terms of capabilities, Campbell.

Meanwhile, the Mets will again get to catch up with Ike Davis this weekend. Davis is hitting .254 with four homers and 19 RBIs and has a .360 on-base percentage in 58 games since the trade for Zack Thornton and player-to-be-named Blake Taylor, a left-hander who made his organization debut with four scoreless innings in the Gulf Coast League on Tuesday.

Thursday’s news reports:

• On the heels of his first complete game, Zack Wheeler had his shortest career start. Wheeler allowed a career-high six earned runs in two innings and the Mets had a three-game winning streak snapped with an 8-5 loss to the Oakland Athletics.


Brad Penner/USA TODAY SportsZack Wheeler had his shortest career start Wednesday.


Wheeler thought A’s baserunners had been relaying the location of his pitches to batters. The bigger issue: his fastball “leaking” over the plate.

Down by eight runs, Lucas Duda had a pinch-hit three-run homer, for his first extra-base hit against a southpaw this season. Chris Young added a two-run homer, for his first third homer in two games, calming talk of his potential release.

Wright’s streak of consecutive games with an RBI ended at a career-high-matching seven.

Columnist Anthony Rieber in Newsday suggests Wheeler more resembles A.J. Burnett than Matt Harvey, and Wright apparently doesn’t disagree. Columnist Bill Madden in the Daily News also dissects Wheeler’s outing.

Read game recaps in the Post, Daily News, Star-Ledger, Record, Times, Newsday and at MLB.com.

• Read more on Lagares’ activation and Flores’ demotion in the Star-Ledger, Record and Newsday.

• Catcher Kevin Plawecki, a supplemental first-round pick in 2012 out of Purdue, has been promoted to Triple-A Las Vegas. He will represent the Mets in the Futures Game in Minneapolis alongside Noah Syndergaard.

• First baseman Matt Clark asked for and was granted his release by the organization from Double-A Binghamton. Clark, 27, signed with the Mets late in the offseason after slugging 25 homers in Japan in 2013. He was hitting .297 with 10 homers and a team-high 46 RBIs with the B-Mets, but was poised to lose playing time with younger players the priority.

• The Mets announced the signings of six additional draft picks, although most had been known and/or already appeared in minor league games: right-hander Gabriel Llanes (15th round), outfielder Raphael Ramirez (18th), outfielder Tucker Tharp (30th), left-hander Kurtis Horne (31st), outfielder Arnaldo Berrios (39th) and Dale Burdick (40th). Berrios is a product of the Carlos Beltran Baseball Academy in Puerto Rico. The Mets have signed 26 of their 39 picks.

• Andrew Beaton in the Journal tries to decode what a positive run differential and losing record means.

• The Mets will be conservative with Wheeler’s innings, Terry Collins indicated. Still, Wheeler logged 168 2/3 innings in 2013. So approaching 200 innings, if he’s capable, would not seem outlandish. Read more in the Star-Ledger.

John Lannan, who had not pitched in a game since being outrighted by the Mets in mid-April, allowed five runs on one hit and four walks and recorded only one out in a start for Class A St. Lucie at Fort Myers on Wednesday. Octavio Acosta allowed a solo homer but no other hits in six innings as Brooklyn beat Aberdeen, 5-1. Read the full minor-league recap here.

• Harvey expects to throw off a mound for the first time in mid-July. Read more in the Post.

Scott Kazmir feels sympathy for Victor Zambrano. "It’s unfortunate how that went down with Victor Zambrano because I’m sure he’s a great guy," Kazmir told Mike Vorkunov in the Star-Ledger. "He didn’t deserve all that. It was something where maybe he -- I don’t know. I don’t know what happened with the injury or anything like that, but if he would have done fine, if he would have done good with the Mets, maybe we wouldn’t even be talking about this trade. It’s just one of those things.”

MIAMI

FIRST PITCH: The Mets will not be home for long, but they will get to head to NYC for a few days after completing a series at Marlins Park on Sunday at 1:10 p.m.

Jonathon Niese (3-4, 2.67 ERA) opposes rookie right-hander/New Jersey native Anthony DeSclafani (1-1, 5.60).

The Mets are off Monday, then host the Oakland Athletics in a two-game series.

Scott Kazmir will pitch in Queens on Wednesday for the first time since he infamously was traded away by the Mets on July 30, 2004. He will be opposite Zack Wheeler.

Those two pitchers actually lined up last September in Cleveland, in Kazmir’s first-ever matchup against the Mets. Kazmir tossed six scoreless innings that day, striking out 12 in an 8-1 win by the Indians.

After the two-game series against the A’s at Citi Field, the Mets ship out to Pittsburgh and Atlanta to complete a stretch in which they will have played 25 of 33 on the road.

Sunday’s news reports:

• In his eighth major league start, rookie Jacob deGrom finally earned his first career win. DeGrom tossed seven scoreless innings and combined with Jeurys Familia and Jenrry Mejia as the Mets shut out the Marlins, 4-0. David Wright went 3-for-4 with a double, RBI and two runs scored. Lucas Duda added a two-run homer in the ninth.

Wright has a six-game hitting streak and has driven in a run in five straight games. He is hitting .435 (10-for-23) with two homers during the mini-spurt. Mets pitchers have a 1.27 ERA in the past five games.

Koji Sasahara/Associated PressWould the Mets actually fork over big money for Cuban defector Yasmani Tomas? That remains to be seen.


• Will the Mets open up their wallets and pursue Cuban defector Yasmani Tomas? Writes Mike Puma in the Post:

General manager Sandy Alderson said it’s too early to say if he will pursue Cuban defector Yasmani Tomas. But Alderson clearly seems intrigued by the 23-year-old.

“A corner outfielder with power?” Alderson said, smiling.

Tomas must establish legal residency and clear hurdles with the State Department before he can sign with a club, according to Alderson.

Jeremy Hefner plans to throw breaking balls off a mound for the first time since undergoing Tommy John surgery as well as increase his fastball velocity to near-normal levels during a throwing session Sunday at Marlins Park. Hefner, who underwent the procedure last Aug. 28, expects to be available to pitch in the majors this season. Read more in the Star-Ledger.

• Kaja Whitehouse in the Post wonders if embattled Mets minority owner Steve Cohen will be forced to sell his investment in the club.

• “Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel” on HBO will do a segment featuring Darryl Strawberry on Tuesday at 10 p.m. The program visits Strawberry and his wife Tracy Boulware Strawberry in St. Louis.

The 52-year-old Strawberry is now an ordained minister and founder of a recovery center for substance-abuse users. He discusses losing his entire baseball earnings, drug addiction, two bouts with colon cancer and jail time.

Strawberry tells the program he became a heroin user after his playing career.

“It was like I was completely out of my mind, sittin' there for four or five days, smokin' crack,” he says. “Doesn't matter if you Darryl Strawberry or, you know, you the richest man on earth. When -- if you're addicted, it will take you to places that you could never imagine.”

Strawberry and his future wife met at a Narcotics Anonymous convention, according to the program. She had her demons in check. He did not.

“The clothes are just hanging off of his body. He's sitting in a chair and he's like part of the fabric in the chair. He looks like the walking dead,” Mrs. Strawberry now says. “He told me not to get involved with him. ‘Girl, you have no idea what you're gettin' yourself into.’ He said, ‘You stay with me and I'm gonna take you through.’

“There were several times where he would go out to use and he would call me on the phone and just say, ‘I’m done. I can't do it anymore. I can't get well. I just -- there's no hope for a person like me. I’m tryin’ everything. Nothin’s enough. Love is not enough.’ He said, ‘I’m gonna use tonight until I die.’

“I’m running out and I’m banging down crack-house doors and I’m pulling him outta places that I used to be in.”

The future Mrs. Strawberry resolved at that point to leave Florida and head to her native St. Louis. Recalling how she told her parents, she said: “I call them halfway into the drive, ‘Mom and Dad, I'm coming home.’ And they're ecstatic. They're happy. They're crying. And, ‘By the way … I’m bringing Darryl Strawberry with me.’”

• Noah Syndergaard allowed two homers and five runs in 6 2/3 innings with Las Vegas. Steven Matz allowed five runs in 5 2/3 innings in his Double-A debut, but the B-Mets rallied for a 7-6 win against Bowie. Michael Fulmer was struck with a line drive on the left forearm and departed after three pitches in Game 1 of a doubleheader. St. Lucie lost the opener, but rebounded for a 2-0 win against Fort Myers in Game 2 behind Matt Koch’s 5 2/3 scoreless innings.

Champ Stuart stole the show in the 11th as Savannah beat Greenville, 7-6. Brandon Brosher had two homers in Kingsport’s 9-5 win against Danville.

Cory Mazzoni (lat) and Luis Mateo (elbow) both pitched in their first official games since suffering injuries as the GCL Mets were blanked by the GCL Nats, 8-0. Read the full minor-league recap here.

• Outfielder Luke Bonfield, the Mets’ 21st-round pick, tweeted he will attend the University of Arkansas rather than sign with the Mets. Dale Burdick, the 40th-round pick, tweeted he will sign with the Mets. Fifteenth-round pick Gabriel Llanes, a prep right-hander from California, signed entering the weekend, he tweeted.

Burdick, a high school shortstop selected in the final round, will receive a $150,000 signing bonus to lure him away from attending Mississippi State, Chip Cirillo writes in the Tennessean. Burdick told the newspaper the Mets originally offered $100,000, but decided to give him an extra $50,000 since they had the sum remaining after agreeing to the monetary terms with first-round pick Michael Conforto. An agreement with Conforto has not yet been announced.
