Mets Daily Farm Report - 5/18/13: Some Errors Are Good, But Others Are Bad

Catch up on the daily news news and notes throughout the Mets farm system!

*All results from games played on Friday, May 17th, 2013*

AAA - Las Vegas 51s (19-20)__________________________________

LAS VEGAS 7, OMAHA 3 (Box)

For the second night in a row, the 51s managed to strike out eleven times, but those whiffs and looks were offset by three home runs from Josh Satin, Landon Powell, and Collin Cowgill. Not to mention 51s pitching had thirteen K's of their own in Omaha last night. Matt Fox pitched five solid innings, and was able to procure the win as the 51s broke a 3-3 tie in the top of the sixth and would never relinquish the lead. The bullpen was stellar, pitching four innings of one-hit ball while striking out seven. Happy night for our Pacific Coast League heroes.

AA - Binghamton Mets (23-18)_____________________________________

BINGHAMTON 6, PORTLAND 3 (Box)

The B-Mets took advantage of three Sea Dog errors in the top of the ninth inning to break a three-all deadlock. Jeff Walters subsequently struck out the side to earn his Eastern League-leading eleventh save. Erik Goeddel pitched six solid innings in the no-decision, dueling rather admirably with Red Sox uber-prospect Matt Barnes. John Church earned the win pitching two scoreless innings of relief.

Hi-A - St. Lucie Mets (23-15)________________________________________

ST. LUCIE 4, BRADENTON 5 (Box)

Whoa, Jenrry Mejia got the start for the S-Mets last night and there were some good things (six strikeouts in three innings) and some not-so-good things (five hits and three walks on 61 pitches). I can live with that though. However, for the game, our Florida State League heroes would be felled in walk-off fashion on an RBI single from Willy Garcia off T.J. Chism, sending Marauder fans home happy and leaving me in a mild state of vexation. Dustin Lawley went yard for ninth time this season, and Aderlin Rodriguez did likewise, meriting his seventh unimpeded trot around this bases.

Lo-A - Savannah Sand Gnats (22-16)__________________________________

SAVANNAH 0, AUGUSTA 11 (Box)

Three Augusta pitchers combined to one-hit the Sand Gnats last night. Robert Gsellman wasn't terrible, but was hurt by chronic poor fielding, including a throwing error of his own. Welp.

Star of the Night

Welcome back, Jenrry. We've missed you so. Much love to Dustin Lawley, Jeff Walters, and #HailSatin.

Goat of the Night

Good grief, Savannah, you're usually the son that doesn't disappoint me when writing these reports. Oh, and welcome to the GotN section, Brandon Hicks.
