AKRON 10, BINGHAMTON 2: Hansel Robles loaded the bases in the first inning but limited the damage to one run, on a fielder’s choice by Tony Wolters. Robles settled down after his bumpy start and held the RubberDucks hitless over the next three innings. That success ended in the fifth when he walked Jordan Smith and surrendered a two-run homer to Tyler Naquin for a 3-0 lead. RubberDucks starter Duke von Schamann silenced the B-Mets through five scoreless innings. Following a walk to open his start, he retired 10 straight B-Mets until Kevin Plawecki singled. Binghamton finally got to the 6-foot-5 righty in the sixth. After Kyle Johnson was thrown out attempting to steal second, von Schamann reopened the door by walking Brian Burgamy with two outs. Plawecki followed with a run-scoring double. Dustin Lawley cut Akron’s lead to 3-2 in the seventh by launching his fifth homer of the season. Akron answered in the bottom half against Chase Huchingson, who was making his first Double-A appearance since before last season's 50-game suspension for a drug of abuse. Jordan Smith reached on an error. Ollie Linton followed with a single. Smith raced from first to third and dashed home when Travis Taijeron’s throw from right bounced off his back and rolled away. Francisco Lindor capped the inning with an RBI single. The RubberDucks then produced a five-run eighth. Wolters launched a two-run homer against Huchingson and Linton tacked on a two-run double against Adam Kolarek. Robles (3-4) was tagged for three runs on three hits over six innings. B-Mets manager Pedro Lopez was ejected in the sixth by home plate umpire Alex Tosi for arguing a foul-ball call. Plawecki notched his team-leading 20th multi-hit game. Box
PALM BEACH 9, ST. LUCIE 5: Domingo Tapia and Hunter Carnevale each surrendered three-run homers. Tapia (2-6) allowed four runs and seven hits in 5 2/3 innings. All four runs he gave up came with two outs in the third. Breyvic Valera drove in a run on a comebacker that deflected off Tapia . Two batters later, Alex Mejia clubbed a three-run homer to put the Cardinals up 4-3. That score held until the seventh. Carnevale gave up a hit and walked two to load the bases with no outs. Mejia drove in a run with a groundout. Bruce Caldwell then launched his three-run homer for an 8-3 lead. Mejia added his fifth RBI in the eighth on a single against Alex Panteliodis. The Mets got a couple of runs back against Kyle Barraclough in their half of the eighth. Aderlin Rodriguez drove in T.J. Rivera with a double. Cole Frenzel made it a perfect 4-for-4 night when his single brought in Rodriguez. However, Barraclough got Eudy Pina to pop out to end the threat. In the ninth, Danny Miranda induced a game-ending double-play ball off the bat of Rivera. The Mets scored the first three runs in the second on RBI doubles by Frenzel and Maikis De La Cruz and a run-scoring single by Yeixon Ruiz. However, Ruiz was caught in a rundown and tagged out and Gilbert Gomez grounded out to put the brakes on the inning. Rehabbing Gonzalez Germen entered with two outs and two runners on in the sixth and retired the lone batter he faced. Box
