AKRON 4, BINGHAMTON 3 (11 innings): The B-Mets erased a three-run deficit, only to fall in the 11th when Giovanny Urshela singled in the game-winning run against Armando Rodriguez (2-3). Binghamton took a chunk out of a 3-0 deficit in the fourth, facing Brett Brach. Batting second in the lineup for the first time this season, Wilfredo Tovar walked, stole second and took third on a groundout. With two outs, Travis Taijeron laced an RBI single and Blake Forsythe bounced an RBI double off the right-field wall, cutting Akron’s lead to one. B-Mets starter Erik Goeddel capped his night with three scoreless innings. The righty worked around a two-out double in the fourth, used a double play to post a scoreless fifth and sidestepped a leadoff single in a scoreless sixth. Brach countered with three shutout innings of his own, but stumbled in the eighth. Binghamton’s game-tying rally started with a one-out walk to Danny Muno. Muno stole second and Tovar brought him home by bouncing a single up the middle, knotting the game at 3. Jeff Johnson took over for Brach and collected the final two outs of the inning, stranding the potential go-ahead run at third base. B-Mets reliever Chase Huchingson preserved the tie with a perfect eighth. Chasen Bradford worked around leadoff walks in the ninth and 10th innings to add two scoreless frames. Box

Verrett has thrown at least eight innings three times this season. Box

ST. LUCIE 4, DUNEDIN 2: In the resumption of a suspended game, St. Lucie scored two runs in the bottom of the seventh for the walk-off win. Yucarybert De La Cruz had a game-tying RBI double and Kyle Johnson contributed a game-ending sacrifice fly. Rainy Lara allowed two runs in four innings and earned the win.

Oberste then laced a double into center field. In the bottom half, right-hander Tim Peterson out of the University of Kentucky tossed a scoreless frame, issuing one walk, to collect his first save. Johnny Magliozzi had failed to hold the two-run lead in the ninth. After allowing a leadoff single and a walk, the ex-Florida Gator seemed like he would be able to wiggle free, recording two outs.

Facing rehabbing Yankee Michael Pineda, Danny Muno walked and Cesar Puello blasted a two-run homer into the railyard in left field. In the second, Pineda surrendered a leadoff single to Richard Lucas, walked Blake Forsythe and plunked Joe Bonfe to load the bases. Two batters later, Pineda walked Muno to force in a run. Pineda struck out the next four batters, but the stretch abruptly ended when Lucas hit a towering solo homer. Pineda allowed four runs, four hits and walked four in three innings.

B-Mets reliever Jim Fuller surrendered a three-run homer to Francisco Arcia in the sixth, tying the score at 4.

After Yucarybert De La Cruz popped up a bunt attempt, Brandon Nimmo blooped a single into shallow left field. Newly acquired Kyle Johnson then was hit by a pitch, loading the bases with one out. Stefan Sabol struck out, but Frenzel then poked his game-winner past shortstop Jose Peraza. The Braves had scored the game’s opening run in the seventh when Chase Anselment homered against Gnats starter Luis Cessa. Cessa went 6 2/3 innings, allowing one run on seven hits and a walk. The Gnats (5-5/48-31) evened the score at 1 in the eighth. Nimmo singled, stole second and scored on Johnson’s single.

Heiker Meneses answered for the Sea Dogs in the second against Mark Cohoon with a two-out RBI triple. Meneses scored when Cohoon uncorked his first wild pitch of the season. Spring launched a two-run homer in the fourth to give Portland a 4-2 lead. A half-inning later, Josh Rodriguez cut the B-Mets' deficit to one with an RBI single. He then scored on a throwing error by Spring. Portland retook the lead in the sixth against reliever Chase Huchingson. The southpaw paid for hitting Derrik Gibson with an 0-2 pitch when Peter Hissey ripped a tiebreaking triple. Thomas added a solo homer in the seventh. Trailing by two, Binghamton rallied against Brock Huntzinger. With the score 6-5 in the eighth, Huntzinger rebounded to get two outs. But with runners at second and third, Tovar then sent a roller to shortstop. Gibson booted the grounder, allowing the tying and go-ahead runs to score. Shawn Teufel preserved the lead with a scoreless eighth before Walters (0-1) faltered.

Minors 5.17.13: Satin HR, Brown 1B for 51s

May, 17, 2013
LAS VEGAS 7, OMAHA 3: Designated hitter Josh Satin had a three-run homer against Will Smith in the third inning to give the 51s (19-20) an early lead. Right-hander Matt Fox,

making his organization debut after being signed out of Somerset in the independent Atlantic League, allowed three runs on six hits, including a pair of homers, while striking out six in five innings. Fox earned the win. In positioning that may bear watching given Ike Davis' struggles, Andrew Brown started at first base for the first time this season. Brown had played in 239 minor league games at first base -- more than any other position -- before joining the Mets. Brown went 2-for-5 to improve his Pacific Coast League average to .366. Satin went 2-for-4 and scored twice and is now hitting .303. Josh Edgin struck out three and walked one in a scoreless ninth in his second appearance since joining Las Vegas from Binghamton. Catcher Juan Centeno left the game with a hamstring strain. Box

BINGHAMTON 6, PORTLAND 3: The B-Mets (23-18) cashed in on three Portland errors in a three-run ninth to stretch their season-best winning streak to five games and move within one game of first-place Portland in the Eastern Division. Richard Lucas led off the ninth against reliever Keith Couch with a slow roller to third. Michael Almanzar barehanded the grounder and fired an errant throw to first as Lucas moved to second. With Lucas as the

go-ahead run, Alonzo Harris pushed a bunt to the mound. Travis Shaw charged from first and fielded it cleanly, but fell to the ground before getting off a throw. Danny Muno followed with a chopper to third. Alamanzar attempted to nab Lucas at the plate, but lost his grip and the B-Mets took the lead. Darrell Ceciliani added an RBI single and Muno scored the final run by scampering home after a throwing error by shortstop Xander Bogaerts. Staked to a three-run lead, Jeff Walters struck out three in a scoreless ninth for his league-leading 11th save. Muno had opened the game by doubling against Portland starter Matt Barnes. Ceciliani pushed Muno to third with a sacrifice bunt. Cesar Puello brought him home with a single. Portland evened the score at 1 in the third against B-Mets starter Erik Goeddel. Peter Hissey’s chopper glanced off Goeddel’s glove and rolled into right field for a single. Tony Thomas then doubled with two outs. After fighting off a B-Mets threat in the second, Barnes settled down and retired 11 consecutive batters. His streak ended in the sixth when he walked Ceciliani. Puello then had an RBI double. Allan Dykstra followed with an RBI double. Binghamton’s 3-1 lead did not last long. After Travis Shaw beat out a bunt single, Michael Almanzar blasted a two-run homer against Goeddel, who allowed three runs on six hits in six innings. B-Mets reliever John Church (2-3) posted two scoreless innings. Box

BRADENTON 5, ST. LUCIE 4: Jenrry Mejia allowed two runs and five hits over three innings with three walks and six strikeouts in his first start on a major league rehab

assignment with St. Lucie (23-16). Willy Garcia drilled a bases-loaded walk-off single against reliever T.J. Chism. Chism allowed a leadoff single to Benji Gonzalez in the ninth and then served up a double to Gregory Polanco. After an intentional walk to Jose Osuna, Chism struck out Dan Gamache. Garcia followed with a line-drive single to score Gonzalez with the winning run. The Mets trailed 3-1 entering the eighth, but rallied for three runs with two outs. Matt Reynolds drew a four-pitch walk. Dustin Lawley then ripped an RBI triple to center and scored the tying run on an errant throw into the dugout by shortstop Alen Hanson. Aderlin Rodriguez launched his seventh homer of the season, a go-ahead solo shot to right-center to give the Mets a 4-3 lead. Garcia hit a game-tying homer off Mets reliever Chasen Bradford in the eighth. Jim Fuller allowed one run over three innings in relief and Bradford allowed one run over two innings. Lawley had two hits and two RBIs, including a solo homer in the sixth. The Pirates' Chase d'Arnaud, the rehabbing brother of Mets prospect Travis d'Arnaud, went 2-for-3 with a triple, walk, RBI and two runs scored for Bradenton while playing shortstop. Box

AUGUSTA 11, SAVANNAH 0: Robert Gsellman was charged with seven runs (two earned) on nine hits and a walk in 4 2/3 innings. The Gnats (22-17) mustered only one hit -- a game-opening single by Yucarybert De La Cruz -- as well as three walks. Box

Cesar Puello rounded out the B-Mets' scoring in the sixth with a solo homer, his team-leading fifth long ball. B-Mets starter Rafael Montero settled down after falling behind early. A one-out, first-inning double by Carlos Moncrief gave Akron a 1-0 lead. The Aeroes tacked on their final run in the third, when Justin Toole hit a seeing-eye single past diving shortstop Wilfredo Tovar and into center.

With losses by Augusta and Asheville, the Gnats are alone in first place for the first time all season. The Gnats took a 4-3 lead in the sixth. Jayce Boyd led off with a sharp one-hopper that shortstop Jean Almanzar booted. Kevin Plawecki drove in Boyd with a double -- his league-leading 16th two-bagger of the year. Trailing 3-0, Savannah had evened the score with a three-run fourth. Eudy Pina and Yucarybert De La Cruz singled to begin the frame. Boyd plated both with his 10th double this season. Boyd scored the tying run on a wild pitch by Kannapolis starter Myles Jaye. The Intimidators built a 3-0 lead through three innings against Savannah starter Gabriel Ynoa, who nonetheless hung in though seven innings for his third win. The Intimidators used a pair of solo homers -- by Brett Tanner leading off the second inning and by Kale Kiser with one out in the third -- to hurt Ynoa. However, the 19-year-old hurler steadied himself and faced the minimum over his final four innings. He struck out eight and did not walk a batter. 2011 first-round pick Brandon Nimmo sat out for a second straight game with mild hand soreness. Box
