*All results from games played on Monday, July 8th, 2013*

AAA - Las Vegas 51s (46-43)__________________________________


The 51s could only muster one run and the staff got knocked around as they fell to Salt Lake 7-1. Starter Giancarlo Alvarado lasted just 1.2 innings before leaving the game due to an apparent injury. He was replaced by the ineffective Greg Peavey. The staff as a whole issued 10 walks on the night and dug a hole the 51 bats could not climb out of.

AA - Binghamton Mets (53-33)_____________________________________


John Church and Pedro Feliciano combined to allow five runs in the bottom of the eighth which set the stage for a furious ninth inning rally that saw the B-Mets fall just short, losing 7-6. Darin Gorski--GORSKI!--was good in this one, going 4.2 IP, H, R, BB, 6 K. He came out after just 63 pitches but it seems this was due to a rain delay.

  • SS Danny Muno: 0-3, RBI, 3 K; Muno was named the Eastern League Player of the Week for the week ended July 7th. He hit .417/.517/.833 over six games with 3 HR, 12 RBI, 4 BB, and a SB. After a mediocre April and a poor May, Muno has rallied to bring his season line up to .243/.381/.393.
  • 2B Josh Rodriguez: 1-4, 2B
  • CF Darrell Ceciliani: 2-3, 2 R, 2 RBI, 2B, BB, HR (5), K
  • RF Cesar Puello: 1-3, R, BB (!); The B-Mets took in another award on Monday as Puello was named Eastern League Player of the Month for June. Puello hit .435/.458/.884 with 7 doubles, 8 home runs, and 24 RBI over 18 games.
  • DH Allan Dykstra: 2-4, R, RBI, K
  • LF Travis Taijeron: 0-3, BB, K
  • LHP Darin Gorski: 4.2 IP, H, ER, BB, 6 K
  • LHP Pedro Feliciano: 0.2 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 0 BB, 0 K

Hi-A - St. Lucie Mets (7-10 / 45-39)________________________________________


St. Lucie rallied late with two runs in the seventh and one in the eighth to beat Fort Myers 5-3. Recently promoted Kyle Johnson--acquired via trade for Colin Cowgill--made his FSL debut, going 3-4 with a walk and three runs scored. I was pretty happy when Sandy and Co. were able to get something of value in exchange for Cowgill. The 23-year-old Johnson seems to fit the mold this front office likes, specifically the ability to draw a walk and not strikeout too much. Rainy Lara had perhaps his worst start of the season, walking five while striking out just one over five innings.

Lo-A - Savannah Sand Gnats (5-9 / 50-36)__________________________________


Short-Season A - Brooklyn Cyclones (9-12)


Jared King drove home the winning run in the bottom of the 8th to lift Brooklyn to a 4-3 win over Lowell Monday night. John Gant was on the mound for the Cyclones and the results were good, giving up just two unearned runs over six innings. The peripherals were a bit mixed as he struck out seven but walked five. Through four starts Gant has struck out 32 and walked 9 over 22 innings.

INJURY UPDATE - The Cyclones have placed Gavin Cecchini on the seven-day DL with a sprained ankle. In 15 games the 19-year-old shortstop is batting .259/.305/.315 with zero home runs and two stolen bases. He has not played since July 3rd.

    Rk - Kingsport Mets (7-11)_____________________________


    Rk - GCL Mets (2-11)_____________________


    Rk - GCL Mets (3-11)_____________________


    • SS Luis Guillorme: 3-4, R, RBI
    • DH Leon Canelon: 3-4, R, 2B, 2 RBI
    • 1B Dominic Smith: 0-3, BB
    • RF Wuilmer Becerra: 0-3, RBI, K
    • LF Vicente Lupo: 1-2, R, K; Too small a sample size to draw any conclusions--that goes for all of the short season teams--but I was hoping for more from Lupo.
    • CF Ivan Wilson: 1-3
    • 2B Branden Kaupe: 1-2, R, BB; Early returns similar to last year--solid on-base skills and absolutely no power whatsoever.
    • RHP Yoryi Nuez: 4.2 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 ER, BB, 3 K
    • Star of the Night

      It hasn't been a great year for Darrell Ceciliani but on this night he gave us a star-worthy performance, going 2-3 with a double, a homer, and a walk while driving in and scoring two.

      Goat of the Night

      Jack Leathersich did not strike out a batter for a second consecutive outing--traid, obviously--allowing three runs on two hits and two walks before finally getting the out he needed to end the fifth. The Leather Rocket still has 19 strikeouts in 11 AAA innings, but his ERA has ballooned to 7.36.
