Mets Daily Farm Report - 6/6/13: Featuring 100% More Cesar Puello, and Not Much Else

I also rate Cesar's performance a thumbs up - USA TODAY Sports

Catch up on all of yesterday’s minor league action from around the Mets farm system!

*All results from games played on Tuesday, June 4th, 2013*

AAA - Las Vegas 51s (31-26)__________________________________


AA - Binghamton Mets (34-25)_____________________________________


This game was closer than the final score suggests. Trenton jumped out to a commanding 6-0 lead in the 2nd inning, and scored another two in the 5th, giving them an 8-0 lead with the game more than half over. Suffice to say, Mark Cohoon did not have a good night. In the bottom of the 5th, the B-Mets rallied back, putting up a six spot. I don't know if it was a coincidence that manager Pedro Lopez was ejected from the game right before the rally began, but whatever sparked it, it worked. The bottom of the order scattered a few hits, when the line-up flipped back to the top, the hits continued, and then Cesar Puello and Allan Dykstra hit back-to-back home runs, their tenth and seventh, respectively. Now, down only by two with four innings to go, we had ourselves a ballgame again. Unfortunately, the Thunder were the first, and only team to score in late innings, driving in two runs in the 7th inning off of Ryan Fraser.

Hi-A - St. Lucie Mets (30-27)________________________________________


St. Lucie once again lost to Lakeland, creating even more separation between the two teams in the standings. Rainy Lara got another start for St. Lucie, but this once was not as impressive as his 8 inning outing last time- the youngster was pulled after five plus innings. He allowed only one earned run, but gave up three unearned ones, stemming from errors he himself and Cam Maron committed. St. Lucie actually got on the board first, scoring two runs in the 1st inning, and held the lead for most of the game, until Lara's "meltdown" in the 6th inning. Drew VerHagen and the Flying Tigers bullpen kept the offense quiet after that, and once trailing, St. Lucie stood no chance.

Lo-A - Savannah Sand Gnats (35-23)__________________________________


Lexington Legend pitcher Alec Mills blanked the Sand Gnats for seven innings, and two relief arms competed the "bullpen-assisted shutout". Savannah's starter, Robert Gsellman, wasn't bad, but he didn't shut out Lexington, and as such, stood no chance of getting the victory.

      Star of the Night

      Not much else to say here, except Cesar Puello is playing baseball at a really high level (relatively speaking) right now.

      Goat of the Night

      There really isn't anything good to take out of Mark Cohoon's start. Ten hits in five innings? Two walks to one strikeout? Six earned runs? A wild pitch? Yuck.
