Mets Daily Farm Report- 9/1/13: Rain, another division title, and some more rain

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

*All results from games played on Saturday, August 31st 2013

AAA - Las Vegas 51's (81-61)______________________________________

LAS VEGAS 8, TUCSON 6 (Box)

It was a wild, back-and-forth affair in Sin City, but what else would you expect in the PCL? In the end, newest 51, Cory Wade nailed down the save in the ninth and Vegas clinched the division title, making them the fourth Mets affiliate to punch their playoff ticket this year. This is the first Triple-A playoff appearance for a Mets affiliate since the New Orleans Zephyrs made it in 2007. And if I were a more vindictive person, I would point out the that Bisons are a mere two games over .500 and have already been eliminated from the International League playoff race.

AA - Binghamton Mets (85-54)_____________________________________

BINGHAMTON VS. NEW HAMPSHIRE PPD (RAIN)

Just two games left for the B-Mets before they head to Trenton later this week for their first playoff series in nearly a decade.

    Hi-A - St. Lucie Mets (33-30 // 70-60)_______________________

    ST. LUCIE VS. JUPITER PPD (RAIN)

    Another day, another rain out in the so-called sunshine state.

    Lo-A - Savannah Sand Gnats (34-33 // 77-59)_____________

    GAME 1: SAVANNAH 4, GREENVILLE 2 (Box)

    GAME 2: SAVANNAH 6, GREENVILLE 4 (Box)

    Savannah is just paying out the string before they kick off their playoff series against Augusta later this week, but it's always nice to sweep a doubleheader. In Game One, Luis Cessa continued his breakout 2013 season, going the full seven innings, and in Game Two, the Gnats offense came out in force early to support Jake Kuebler. The Gnats scored all six of their runs in the first two innings, keyed by 2-RBI hits from Stefan Sabol and Dilson Herrera.

    SS-A Brooklyn Cyclones (37-34)_______________________________

    ABERDEEN 7, BROOKLYN 0 (Box)

    Brooklyn's bats went quiet against Cal's kids, and the Cyclones now find themselves a half game back of Aberdeen. Akeel Morris was very good in his five innings of work, but the Brooklyn pen surrendered six runs and the bats never got going in Aberdeen. The Cyclones get a rematch this evening at MCU Park in what is pretty close to a must-win game for Brooklyn's finest.

    • SS Gavin Cecchini: 1-4
    • 2B LJ Mazzilli: 0-4, 2K
    • CF Jared King: 2-4, 2B
    • RHP Akeel Morris: 5 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 2 BB, 7 K, 1 HR; I saw Bad Akeel last Sunday, so it was nice to see Good Akeel make an appearance this weekend. Just don't see a starter even in the short-term with that delivery.

    R - Kingsport Mets (40-27)_______________________________

    KINGSPORT @ GREENEVILLE PPD (RAIN)

    Game 1 of the K-Mets's Appy League playoff series was rained out. They will try again today with Chris Flexen on the mound against the flame-throwing Jandel Gustave.

    Star of the Night

    Three cheers for the entire 51s team!

    Goat of the Night

    Kevin McGown and Cameron Griffin gave up six runs in four innings of work and turned a tense Cyclones game into a laugher. Honorable mention to all that rain.
