Minors 6.28.16: Harol Gonzalez's 10 Ks lift Cyclones past Spikes

SACRAMENTO 14, LAS VEGAS 10: Gabriel Ynoa allowed nine runs (six earned) on 11 hits in five innings. Eric Campbell reached base five times (3-for-4, walk, HBP). Travis Taijeron was 3-for-6 with a double and two RBIs. Roger Bernadina was 3-for-5 with a double and RBI. Michael Conforto went 2-for-5 with a walk and two runs scored. Box

ALTOONA 8, BINGHAMTON 7: Jose Reyes went 0-for-4 and played six innings at third base as his tune-up moved to the Eastern League. Juan Lagares went 1-for-4 with a strikeout and a run scored in the first game of his rehab assignment. Lagares played seven innings in center field. He is trying to demonstrate he can play with a partially torn ligament in his left thumb and can avoid in-season surgery. With the B-Mets clinging to a 7-6 lead entering the bottom of the ninth, Beck Wheeler allowed a leadoff single to Edwin Espinal, who took second on an error. Erich Weiss worked a one-out walk. Harold Ramirez then bounced a grounder to short. Amed Rosario got the forceout at second, but the turn from L.J. Mazzilli went wide of first, allowing Ramirez to take second. Pinch runner Chris Diaz scored on the play to even the game at 7. One batter later, Jose Osuna doubled, scoring Ramirez for the walk-off win. Wheeler (0-2) blew his first save of the season. Dominic Smith hit his third homer in the past five games and established a career high with seven long balls on the season. Box

CHARLOTTE 11, ST. LUCIE 9: St. Lucie squandered an 8-0 lead. The Mets committed four errors that led to five unearned runs. Errors by shortstop Luis Guillorme and second baseman Vinny Siena in the eighth resulted in three runs that turned the Crabs' one-run deficit into a two-run lead. The Mets had jumped on Charlotte starter Chris Pike, tallying eight runs and 10 hits in the opening three innings. In that span, the Mets got a two-run double from Jhoan Urena and a two-run single from Siena. Mets starter Andrew Church needed only 14 pitches, all strikes, to retire the first seven batters he faced. However, he threw 33 more pitches in the third inning while recording just one more out. The Stone Crabs tagged him for four runs in the frame to make it 8-4. Box

HICKORY 4, COLUMBIA 1; COLUMBIA 10, HICKORY 9: In the resumption of Monday's suspended game, Hickory broke a 1-all tie with three eighth-inning runs against Johnny Magliozzi. Magliozzi had allowed only one earned run in 16 2/3 innings over his previous nine appearances. In the regularly scheduled game, David Thompson returned from the disabled list with a three-run homer in the eighth that rallied the Fireflies from a 9-7 deficit. Box 1, Box 2

KINGSPORT 6, PULASKI 4; PULASKI 7, KINGSPORT 1: Dionis Rodriguez went 3-for-3 with three RBIs in the opener, while Jose Miguel Medina scored three times. In Game 2, Darwin Ramos and Ronald Guedez combined to allow seven runs, but only three earned. Box 1, Box 2

BROOKLYN 6, STATE COLLEGE 2: Cyclones starter Harol Gonzalez struck out 10 while limiting the Spikes to one run on three hits and a walk in six innings. Blake Tiberi's run-scoring groundout with the bases loaded in the first opened the scoring. An inning later, Arnadlo Berrios doubled and scored on Brandon Brosher's single. After Brosher was erased on the basepaths, Dale Burdick singled, stole second and scored on shortstop Jose Martinez's throwing error for a 3-0 lead. Burdick, who opened the season 1-for-29, collected his third hit of the night with an RBI single that made it 4-1 in the eighth. Gene Cone and Jay Jabs each worked bases-loaded walks later in the frame for a five-run lead. Logan Taylor contributed two scoreless relief innings. Box

GCL MARLINS 9, GCL METS 2: Kenny Hernandez went 3-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored in the loss. Box
