New York Mets Daily Farm Report - 9/11/2011

*Results from games played Saturday, September 10th 2011


FLORIDA STATE LEAGUE CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES____________________________________________

ST. LUCIE 4, DAYTONA 10 (Box) RHP Scott Moviel got the start in this one...and that was the problem. The monumental righty has been too damn hittable all season (see: .340 opp. avg.) and that continued tonight. Now there was some shaky defense behind him as two of the Mets youngest players -- outfielders Cesar Puello and Gilbert Gomez -- both made costly errors. However, Moviel himself made a costly one as well and by keeping the bases clogged with runners he didn't do himself any favors.

St. Lucie found their initial 4-0 hole after three innings rough, the 10-1 deficit after seven even rougher, but both pale in comparison to the 2-0 series deficit they face as they head home for today's make or break affair.

SS Wilmer Flores: 1-4, BB, K

CF Cesar Puello: 1-4, R, E; Batting .111 in the playoffs

3B Jefry Marte: 2-4, HR

RF Gilbert Gomez: 0-3, R, BB, 3 K, E; After forcing his way into the starting lineup with a dynamite Hi-A debut, 19-year old is just 2-for-18 with 7 K's in the playoffs

RHP Scott Moviel: L, 3 IP, 2 ER (2 unearned), 5 H, 0 BB, 0 K, HR, WP

Daytona leads St. Lucie in best of five series, 2-0


AUGUSTA 1, SAVANNAH 3 (Box) Two words: Erik Goeddel. Savannah's starter was a beast in this game, showing off all his high level potential by shutting out of the GreenJackets over five tremendous innings. He scattered three singles over three separate innings and aside from three more pesky walks he was great. Starter RHP Ryan Fraser relieved him with two innings of hitless, scoreless relief. RHP Brandon Sage and minor league Rule 5 draftee RHP Ronny Morla provided two more innings of scoreless relief on the back end. In total, the Gnats staff allowed just five hits -- all singles -- and of their outs, 14 of them were ground outs, versus just three fly balls.

On the other side, the Sand Gnats offense wasn't exactly clicking on all cylinders but with scores in three of the first four innings, they managed. In fact, Savannah batters went a hollow 0-for-9 with RISP as all three of their runs crossed from sacrifices or errors. Smallball, son. Not really any standout performances on the offensive side, but you can't be too upset with OF Darrell Ceciliani's 2-for-3 with a triple.

Either way, the Gnats' 'win or go home' victory carried them into the SAL Championship against the Greensboro Grasshoppers, scheduled to begin in Savannah on Thursday. Savannah was 3-5 in their meetings with Greensboro this season.

CF Darrell Ceciliani: 2-3, 3B, R, BB, E, PO; Batting .545 in the playoffs

C Albert Cordero:0-4, 2 K, PB

3B Aderlin Rodriguez: 1-3, 2B, R, BB

SS Wilfredo Tovar: 0-3, RBI; Still hitless since the regular season ended

DH Blake Forsythe: 1-3, 2B, HBP

LF Alonzo Harris: 0-3, RBI

RHP Erik Goeddel: W, 5 IP, 0 ER, 3 H, 3 BB, 4 K, WP; Tremendous 9:1 GB-to-FB rate in this one

RHP Ryan Fraser: 2 IP, 0 ER, 0 H, 0 BB, 1 K

Savannah defeats Augusta in best of three semi-final series, 2-1


NEW YORK-PENN LEAGUE SEMI-FINALS SERIES______________________________________________

BROOKLYN 0, STATEN ISLAND 1 (Box) This was one the kind of absolute nail-biter that you'd expect in such a showdown of rivals. However, when the dust settled in this Battle of the Boroughs, unfortunately the Cyclones from Brooklyn found themselves on the wrong side of the ledger, which is always a tough pill to swallow on the last day of the season no matter how epic the battle. They fought valiantly. For the second time in his last three starts slight Mexican lefty Carlos Vazquez tossed six masterfully scoreless innings. Twelve maddening times the 'Clones offense was able to put a man in scoring position.

But they just didn't seem to have it with men on base. In the fourth, the runner from first didn't score on a double. In the fifth, a man from second stopped at third on a single. In neither case was the ball particularly stung but both cases would loom large in the end as the Brooklyn lineup didn't have it tonight, collecting just four hits. In their two losses in this series Cyclones hitters managed just six hits total.

For the second consecutive year the Cyclones fell short in their quest for a title. However, for the second consecutive year, it was a damn fine season in Brooklyn.

SS Danny Muno: 1-4, K; After winning the NYPL BA Title with a .355 mark, Muno batted just .182 in the playoffs...

CF Travis Taijeron: 0-3, BB, 2 K;...bested only by the Taijeron-asaurus Rex and his .091 mark

LF Javier Rodriguez: 2-4, 2B

3B Brian Harrison: 1-3, BB

3B Richard Lucas: 0-4, 2 K

1B Cole Frenzel: 0-4, 2 K

LHP Carlos Vazquez: 6 IP, 0 ER, 2 H, 1 BB, 6 K, PO

LHP TJ Chism: L, 2 IP, 1 ER, 2 H, 1 BB, 2 K

Staten Island defeats Brooklyn in best of three semi-final series, 2-1
