Rehabbing righthanders Vic Black and Bobby Parnell each pitched an inning for the Mets' Single-A Advanced affiliate, St. Lucie, during a 14-6 win over Brevard County on Thursday.

Black pitched a perfect eighth. Parnell allowed two hits, two runs and a walk in the ninth. Neither pitcher struck out a batter.

Centerfielder Champ Stuart was 2-for-4 with a walk, two stolen bases and four runs scored.

Stuart's seven stolen bases and nine walks so far this season lead the Florida State League. He's been caught just once. His .423 average and nine runs scored are both second in the league.

Leftfielder Michael Conforto, the Mets' top pick in the 2014 draft, was 2-for-4 with a double. Dominic Smith, the Mets' top pick in 2013, went 3-for-5 for St. Lucie (5-3).

Elsewhere in the minors


Shortstop Matt Reynolds was 2-for-4 with a home run, and second baseman Dilson Herrera went 2-for-4 with a stolen base as the 51s beat Sacramento, 7-4. Following an 0-for-11 start to his season, Reynolds is hitting .350 (7-for-20) with two doubles, a triple and a home run. Herrera started the season 0-for-8 but is 7-for-18 (.388) in his last five games. He has yet to record an extra-base hit, however.


Second baseman T.J. Rivera was 4-for-4 with a double and a walk, leftfielder Jayce Boyd went 3-for-4 with a walk and first baseman Josh Rodriguez was 2-for-5 with a home run as the Mets beat Harrisburg, 9-3. Centerfielder Brandon Nimmo was 2-for-5 with a double and shortstop Gavin Cecchini went 2-for-4 with a double.


First baseman Stefan Sabol, rightfielder Wuilmer Becerra and third baseman Pedro Perez each homered in the Sand Gnats' 8-3 win over Yankees affiliate Charleston.
