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

INDIANAPOLIS 8, BUFFALO 6: Two ninth-inning errors were the deciding factor. Oswaldo Navarro, who replaced starting shortstop Omar Quintanilla in the ninth, attempted to retire Starling Marte at first base, but the throw was wide left. The error put Marte at second with no outs. After a perfectly placed sacrifice bunt by Alex Presley, catcher Lucas May fired a throw to first to try to get Presley, but the throw was offline. Josh Edgin then hit Matt Hague with a pitch, setting up Jordy Mercer to line the decisive two-run single. The Bisons have committed nine errors in the past three games. Trailing 6-3 in the seventh, Corey Wimberly and Fred Lewis had back-to-back singles with one out. After Josh Satin walked, Wimberly scored on Jose Morales' passed ball to cut the deficit to 6-4. Valentino Pascucci's sacrifice fly then pulled Buffalo within a run. Navarro doubled in the eighth to bring in Dustin Martin to tie the score at 6. Satin is 6-for-11 in his past four games, with six walks. Box

NEW BRITAIN 10, BINGHAMTON 7: The B-Mets scored five runs in the ninth inning, but could not overcome an early deficit. After waiting through a 74-minute rain delay to start the game, the Rock Cats grabbed an early lead with two unearned runs in the first. New Britain took advantage of a throwing error from shortstop Sean Kazmar. Binghamton answered against New Britain starter Steve Hirschfeld in the fourth. After three consecutive singles loaded the bases, Juan Centeno got the B-Mets on the board with a sac fly. It was the only run they scratched out against Hirschfeld (3-4). The righty went five innings in his first win since mid-April. The Rock Cats tagged B-Mets starter Mark Cohoon for seven runs on eight hits, plating two in the fourth and three more in the fifth. Evan Bigley’s two-run single gave the Rock Cats a 7-1 lead and chased the southpaw from the game. Cohoon (2-5) walked two and struck out two. After the B-Mets plated a run in the eighth on a sac fly from Juan Lagares, the Rock Cats stretched their lead to eight runs with a three-run frame. New Britain pounded out five hits, including three doubles against Armando Rodriguez. The inning proved vital as the B-Mets put up five runs in the ninth against reliever Daniel Turpen. Josh Rodriguez tripled two runs home and scored on a groundout. After Jefry Marte singled, Raul Reyes crushed a two-run homer to cut the deficit to three. Turpen ended the game by inducing Lagares to ground out. Box

DAYTONA 4, ST. LUCIE 3: Daytona scored three-runs in the bottom of the ninth for the walk-off win, spoiling five scoreless innings from starter Erik Goeddel. Working a second inning of relief, Adam Kolarek started the final frame and surrendered two singles and a walk. Taylor Whitenton entered and surrendered a single and hit a batter before allowing a game-ending sacrifice fly to Greg Rohan. Box

CHARLESTON 5, SAVANNAH 3 (11 innings): In the 11th, the Dogs scored the go-ahead run on an RBI double from DH Kelvin De Leon off Gnats reliever Jeffrey Walters. Immediately thereafter, Gnats pitching coach Frank Viola was ejected by plate umpire Junior Valentine for arguing balls and strikes. Charleston added the fifth run on a sacrifice fly by Mason Williams. The earned runs allowed by Walters were his first of 2012. The Gnats had taken a 2-1 lead with two runs in the bottom of the first. T.J. Rivera singled and scored on Dustin Lawley’s double to deep right-center. Lawley scored on an RBI single by Brian Harrison. The Gnats added a run for a 3-1 lead in the second on a Rivera sacrifice fly. Savannah starter Jacob deGrom allowed his first earned run of the year, in his third start. He was charged with three runs (two earned) in 5 2/3 innings, striking out six and walking one. Box
