Minors 5.8.14: B-Mets' Boyd drives in 4

May, 9, 2014
LAS VEGAS 16, SALT LAKE 4: Allan Dykstra, Zach Lutz, Taylor Teagarden and Brandon Allen homered in consecutive at-bats against Salt Lake's Jose Alvarez in a five-run fourth. Andrew Brown went deep an inning later, too, as Vegas pounded out 21 hits and improved to 24-10 on the season. Brown went 3-for-4 with two walks and scored five runs. Lutz went 3-for-5 with five RBIs. Campbell also had three hits and scored three runs. Starter Logan Verrett allowed four runs on 10 hits and a walk in five innings. Ex-Met Robert Carson was charged with five runs while recording only one out. Carson allowed a hit and walked four batters. Box

BINGHAMTON 12, HARRISBURG 6: Jayce Boyd collected four RBIs, including on a tiebreaking three-run homer in the fifth. Starter Darin Gorski (3-1) allowed two runs on

seven hits and struck out seven in six innings. He also had two hits at the plate. Michael Taylor launched Gorski’s first pitch of the game for a homer. However, Gorski helped his own cause and lifted the B-Mets into the lead in the second. Kevin Plawecki singled and Dustin Lawley and Wilfredo Tovar walked to load the bases. Gorski then jumped on Blake Schwartz’s first pitch, dumping it into shallow left-center. The single, his first hit since July 9, 2012, plated two and gave Binghamton a 2-1 lead. Ricky Hague's solo homer in the fifth briefly tied the score. But in the bottom half, Gorski doubled and Schwartz issued a two-out walk to Matt Reynolds. Boyd then produced his second homer of the season -- and his second homer in three days. Travis Taijeron tacked onto the lead with a solo shot against reliever Brian Dupra in the sixth. The Senators moved to within 6-4 with two runs in the seventh against John Church. The B-Mets responded with two of their own off Dupra in the bottom half. Reynolds supplied an RBI single after Darrell Ceciliani and Brian Burgamy opened the inning with hits. Plawecki made it an 8-4 score with a sacrifice fly. Binghamton added four runs in the eighth, highlighted by Reynolds' RBI triple and Boyd's run-scoring double. Box

ST. LUCIE 4, PALM BEACH 2: Aderlin Rodriguez broke a 2-all tie with a double that plated Cam Maron from first base in the eighth. Maikis De La Cruz then drove in Rodriguez with a

single for a two-run cushion. Beck Wheeler struck out two in a perfect ninth to record his fourth save. Starters Domingo Tapia and Joe Cuda traded zeroes through the first four innings. The Cardinals struck first in the fifth. Charlie Tilson and Bruce Caldwell singled with two outs and Nick Martini drove them in with a double against Tapia. The Mets evened the score at 2 in the bottom half. With the bases loaded and one out, Dilson Herrera sent a grounder to third base. Bruce Caldwell threw wide of catcher Casey Rasmus, allowing Robbie Shields and Phillip Evans to score. Seth Lugo pitched three relief scoreless innings after replacing Tapia. Lugo allowed one single and one walk and earned his second win. No Cardinal advanced past first base after the fifth inning. Tapia surrendered two runs on five hits in five innings. Rodriguez, T.J. Rivera, Shields and Gilbert Gomez each had multi-hit games. Box

SAVANNAH 5, WEST VIRGINIA 3: L.J. Mazzilli's RBI single in the fifth broke a 3-all tie and Victor Cruzado added a leadoff homer in the ninth. Although Gnats pitchers Dario Alvarez, Dawrin Frias, Tim Peterson and Robert Coles each logged 2 2/3 innings or fewer, the quartet combined to strike out 13 while allowing only one earned run. 2012 first-round pick Gavin Cecchini departed after doubling and scoring in the first inning, reportedly with a right-knee issue. Savannah (three) and West Virginia (four) each tied season-high error totals. Savannah (22-9) hopped on the scoreboard in the first inning when Dominic Smith delivered a two-run single against Power starter Dovydas Neverauskas with the bases loaded. Mazzilli then scored on a wild pitch to make it 3-0. In the third inning, West Virginia scored its only earned run. Reese McGuire singled against Alvarez to plate Harold Ramirez. Next, McGuire and Erich Weiss scored on a throwing error by Mazzilli, who had moved to shortstop in place of Cecchini. Alvarez tossed 2 2/3 innings, allowing three runs (one earned) on five hits while striking out three. It was Alvarez's first earned run allowed in 19 1/3 innings this season. Frias (2-0) worked around two walks to complete 2 1/3 hitless relief innings. Peterson then pitched 2 1/3 innings, striking out four. Coles cruised through the last five outs for his sixth save. Savannah has extended its divisional lead to 4 1/2 games. Box

ROUND ROCK 12, LAS VEGAS 6: Starter D.J. Mitchell surrendered six runs in 4 1/3 innings. Eric Campbell's fifth-inning solo homer evened the score at 6, but Round Rock produced six runs against the 51s' bullpen. Campbell had three hits and three RBIs. Kirk Nieuwenhuis went 3-for-5 in the loss. Box

BINGHAMTON 8, HARRISBURG 4 (seven innings): One night after being no-hit, the B-Mets scored eight runs in the first two innings en route to a rain-shortened victory. After Harrisburg scored a run on an Anthony Rendon double in the top half of the first, Binghamton came out swinging against Harrisburg starter Caleb Clay. Darrell Ceciliani led off with a single and Danny Muno followed with a two-run homer. Josh Rodriguez then was hit by a pitch. Rodriguez moved to third on Allan Dykstra’s single and scored on a double play. Binghamton batted around in the second, scoring five more times. Ceciliani had a two-run triple. After Rodriguez singled him home, reliever Matt Swynenberg entered. Dykstra welcomed him with a two-run homer to push the lead to 8-1. B-Mets starter Erik Goeddel ran into trouble in the fourth. He gave up consecutive doubles to Ricky Hague and Swynenberg as Harrisburg cut the deficit to 8-4. Goeddel’s night ended after five innings. He allowed four runs on six hits and picked up his third victory. Adam Kolarek threw a perfect sixth. Jack Leathersich recorded two outs in the seventh before the rain came and ended the game. Box

PALM BEACH 7, ST. LUCIE 3: Dustin Lawley went 3-for-4, scored twice and had two RBIs,

but the Mets had their six-game winning streak snapped. Angel Cuan, starting in place of Domingo Tapia, allowed three runs and six hits over six innings. Tapia (2.23 ERA) landed on the DL after burning his non-pitching hand. Lawley had three of the five hits for the Mets, including a two-out, go-ahead two-run homer in the sixth. The Cardinals tied the score in the seventh on Ronny Gil’s RBI double against reliever Estarlin Morel. Jonathan Rodriguez had a go-ahead RBI double in a three-run eighth for the Cardinals against Randy Fontanez. Wanel Mesa allowed a solo homer to Stephen Piscotty in the ninth. Jennry Mejia will start Saturday’s series finale. It will mark his first official minor league game since a spring-training shutdown with forearm tendinitis. Box

ROME 3, SAVANNAH 2: Beck Wheeler (0-1) surrendered the tiebreaking run in the eighth as Jose Peraza singled with two outs, stole second and scored on Levi Hyams’ single. Hyams’ slow bouncer up the middle squirted off the glove of Savannah second baseman Yucarybert De La Cruz and into center field. The Braves (19-13) moved within a game of the Gnats (20-12) for first place in the Southern Division. Savannah never led. In the third, Jayce Boyd doubled home De La Cruz to even the score at 1. In the sixth, Kevin Plawecki doubled up the left-center gap to score Boyd and even the score at 2. Savannah starter Rainy Lara allowed two runs (one earned) in seven innings with eight strikeouts and no walks. Box

May, 9, 2013

HARRISBURG 6, BINGHAMTON 1: Paul Demny and Ian Krol combined to throw the first no-hitter against the B-Mets since Aug. 13 , 2001. Demny hit a batter and walked another in the first inning, but escaped unscathed. He retired seven in a row until walking Allan Dykstra in the fourth. His night ended at 113 pitches after eight innings. Krol threw a

perfect ninth. Cesar Puello went 0-for-3, ending his 15-game hitting streak, which had been the longest active in Double-A. Binghamton scored its lone run in the seventh. After Dykstra led off with his third walk of the game, he moved to third base on a throwing error by Demny. With runners on the corners, Francisco Pena grounded into a run-scoring 3-6-1 double-play. Harrisburg got its offense going right away against B-Mets starter Jacob deGrom. After a throwing error by the catcher Pena on a bunt attempt in the first inning, Anthony Rendon doubled in a run. He came around to score when Jerad Head singled. Harrisburg scored another unearned run in the second, on Dykstra's throwing error. In the sixth, the Senators busted the game open. After Jimmy Van Ostrand doubled and Sandy Leon was intentionally walked, Ricky Hague doubled down the left-field line to knock in both runners. He then scored a batter later when Demny helped himself out with an RBI double. DeGrom’s night ended after 5 2/3 innings. He gave up six runs on nine hits. He is now 0-4 in five Double-A starts. In deGrom’s outings, Binghamton has scored a total of five runs. Box

ST. LUCIE 17, PALM BEACH 1: Noah Syndergaard matched a career high by logging seven innings and struck out seven and Matt Reynolds had three hits and five RBIs as St.

Lucie produced its sixth straight win in a rout. Syndergaard (2-1) retired 15 consecutive batters after allowing a leadoff double in the first. He allowed just two baserunners through six innings.

SAVANNAH 3, ROME 1: Down 1-0 in the sixth, South Atlantic League batting-average leader Kevin Plawecki drew a walk to begin what ended up being a three-run frame. A hit-by-pitch and then a single loaded the bases. Plawecki scored on a wild pitch by Braves starter Rafael Briceno to even the score at 1. Greg Pron followed with a walk to reload the bases and chase Briceno. Facing reliever Alex Wilson in his Rome debut, Jeff Glenn lifted a sacrifice fly, scoring Cole Frenzel. The other runners, Maikis De La Cruz and Pron, also tagged. Braves third baseman Carlos Franco's throw to second, in his attempt on Pron, sailed into right field, allowing De La Cruz to score the Gnats' third run. De La Cruz, who was added to the Gnats' roster on Thursday, was 2-for-4. The Braves scored the game's first run on a solo homer by Casey Kalenkosky in the second against left-hander Steven Matz. Matz (2-0, 1.85 ERA) completed six innings for the first time this season. He allowed one run on six hits with four strikeouts and one walk. The Gnats turned double plays behind him in the fifth and sixth innings to help him out of jams. 2011 first-round pick Brandon Nimmo (hand) has landed on the DL. Box
