Last night was the opening of the minor league season!  All four Mets affiliates were in action so let’s just cut to the chase and get to the games: Las Vegas 10, Sacramento 5Zack Wheeler had some control issues and ended up throwing 86 pitches in 3.1 innings, allowing 2 runs on 3 hits with 3 walks, 3 strikeouts, and a wild pitch.  Armando Rodriguez let up 3 runs in the 8th, but the rest of the bullpen was good, including Robert Carson, who picked a scoreless 9th.  The 51’s scored early and often in this one.  Wilmer Flores was 3 for 3 with a double, a walk, and 2 RBI’s.  Travis d’Arnaud was 2 for 3 with 2 doubles, 2 walks, an RBI, and 4 runs scored.  Andrew Brown and Zach Lutz also doubled; Brown drove in 4 runs.  Josh Satin had a 2-hit game and Omar Quintanilla tripled. Binghamton 2, Akron 1The B-Mets got off to a great start thanks to a brilliant performance by Rafael Montero.  Montero lasted 5.2 innings, allowing 2 hits and no walks while striking out 8.  Adam Kolarek and Jeffrey Walters finished the final 3.1 innings without giving up a run.  Binghamton managed just 5 hits, including a homer by Josh Rodriguez and a double by Alonzo Harris. St. Lucie 7, Jupiter 2Hansel Robles (of the Mets 40 man roster) started and lasted just 3.1 innings, allowing 2 runs, both on solo homers, but struck out 6 with no walks.  Robles was forced to leave after a pick-off attempt, possibly hurting a side muscle.  He threw a couple warm up pitches with the trainer watching, but then left the game.  Jim Fuller and T.J.
