News & Notes____________________
Jason Parks (@ProfessorParks) of Baseball Prospectus seems rather taken with Cyclones star outfielder Brandon Nimmo in a recent tweet:
Love to hear that.
AAA - Buffalo Bisons (64-74)_______________________________________
ROCHESTER 6, BUFFALO 1 (Box)
Jenrry Mejia struggled a bit with his command, and Rochester was finding holes when they made contact with runners on. Those two things combined with very little in the way of offense will usually lead to a loss.
- CF Matt Den Dekker: 0-4
- 3B Zach Lutz: 3-4, 2 2B, R
- 1B/2B Josh Satin: 1-4
- 2B Brad Emaus: 0-3, BB, K
- RHP Jenrry Mejia: 6 IP, 4 H, 5 ER, 3 K, 4 BB
AA - Binghamton Mets (65-70)_____________________________________
READING 4, BINGHAMTON 1 (Box)
Mark Cohoon was very hitable. Trevor May was not. Binghamton were probably a bit lucky that the scoreline was as flattering as it was.
- LF Juan Lagares: 0-4, 2 K
- 3B Jefry Marte: 0-3
- 2B Reese Havens: 0-4, 3 K
- 1B Wilmer Flores: 2-3, HR, RBI, R
- LF Eric Campbell: 0-3, K
- LHP Mark Cohoon: 5 IP, 10 H, 4 ER, 2 K, BB, HR
Hi-A - St. Lucie Mets (30-30)________________________________________
St. Lucie got an unexpected day off when the weather didn't cooperate.
Lo-A - Savannah Sand Gnats (25-37)__________________________________
Savannah had the scheduled day off.
- CF Brandon Nimmo: 0-5, K
- SS Philip Evans: 0-4, 2 K
- C Kevin Plawecki: 0-4
- 1B Jayce Boyd: 1-3, HR, BB, K, RBI, R
- RHP Rainy Lara: 6 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, 4 K, BB
Short Season A - Brooklyn Cyclones (40-27)__________________________________
BROOKLYN 2, ABERDEEN 1 (Box)
Brooklyn just kept on pushing towards the playoffs, as another win put them another step closer to the wild card. Rainy Lara had another fantastic start, and Jayce Boyd chipped in with a homerun in this one.
Appalachian League (R) - Kingsport Mets (23-42)__________________________________
PULASKI 5, KINGSPORT 4 (Box)
Kingsport had a comfortable 4 run lead heading into the 8th inning, but they've apparently got a little bit of the Mets in them as the bullpen allowed 5 runs over the next 2 innings for the loss.
★ Star of the Night ★
Rainy Lara was fantastic in leading the Brooklyn playoff push. Gold star for him.
Goat of the Night
Mark Cohoon looks an awful long way removed from the guy who looked like a fringe Major Leaguer a few years ago. Ugh.
