Minors 6.22.15: Matt Blackham tosses seven scoreless for 'Clones

BINGHAMTON 5, NEW HAMPSHIRE 2: Albert Cordero delivered a tiebreaking solo homer in the seventh. The B-Mets opened a three-run cushion on Brock Peterson's two-run double in the ninth. Paul Sewald earned his 12th save. Starter Gabriel Ynoa (4-4) allowed two runs on four hits and two walks in 6 2/3 innings. Box

JUPITER 4, ST. LUCIE 1: Jose Fernandez was dominant in his fourth rehab start as he works back from Tommy John surgery. The Marlins ace allowed one run on four hits and a walk and struck out nine in seven innings. The lone run against him came in the sixth when Jeff McNeil tripled down the left-field line and scored a wild pitch. The Hammerheads jumped to a 2-0 lead in the first against Kevin McGowan. Don Kelly grounded out to bring a run home. First baseman Dominic Smith then made an errant throw to third base looking to catch Austin Dean off the bag. The throw sailed high and Dean trotted home. Yefri Perez singled to bring home Blake Barber in the fourth to make it 3-0. After McNeil scored to cut the deficit to 3-1, the Hammerheads got the run back in the seventh as Avery Romero’s single against Kelly Secrest plated J.T. Riddle. The Mets put runners on first and second with one out in the ninth, but Tyler Kinley struck out Victor Cruzado and Colton Plaia popped out to end the game. McGowan allowed three runs (two earned) on seven hits in four innings. Smith had the only multi-hit game for the Mets. He twice singled against Fernandez. Box

BROOKLYN 14, TRI-CITY 0: Matt Blackham tossed seven scoreless innings. He allowed three hits and one walk while striking out seven. Tucker Tharp went 4-for-4 with a walk and scored five runs. Michael Bernal had a two-run homer and finished with four RBIs. Christian Montgomery and Corey Taylor each tossed a scoreless frame to complete the Cyclones' four-hit shutout. Box

GCL MARLINS 2, GCL METS 1: Former Binghamton closer Jeff Walters tossed a perfect first inning in his first official game since undergoing Tommy John surgery. Merandy Gonzalez followed with five flawless innings and the Mets carried a perfect-game bid into the eighth inning in their season opener. In his second inning of work, Luis Carreno allowed the first baserunner on a one-out single in the eighth to Pablo Garcia. Carreno eventually surrendered a two-run homer to Erwin Almonte in that frame to sink the Mets. Box
