Five different Binghamton Mets homered in a 12-4 win over the Jacksonville Suns in a spring training game on Wednesday afternoon at the New York Mets facility. Amed Rosario, Michael Conforto, LJ Mazzilli, Dominic Smith and Victor Cruzado all went deep for the B-Mets in their second win of the spring.
Conforto, a 22-year-old outfielder out of Oregon State University, was selected by the Mets in the first round of last year’s draft. The Washington native drove in three runs against the Suns. Conforto made his pro debut with the Brooklyn Cyclones (SS-A), hitting .331 over 42 games in 2014.
Smith, a first-round pick in 2013, compiled a multiple-hit game while Rosario tripled in addition to his home run.
On the mound, 2014 B-Met Gabriel Ynoa allowed two runs over four innings. Domingo Tapia added two scoreless innings of relief.
The B-Mets venture to Jupiter, Florida on Thursday afternoon to take on the Springfield Cardinals.
