Mets Daily Farm Report, July 6, 2014: Wilmer powers up for fifth in three days amidst two frightening line scores

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

*All results from games played on Saturday, July 5, 2014

Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (52–38)______________________________________

Game 1


RHP Greg Peavey (credit: Gordon Donovan)

The Isotopes scored a quick five runs off of Greg Peavey in the bottom of the first inning and never looked back. Five more crossed in the bottom of the third and were added to Peavey's ledger, and this seven-inning game was pretty much out of reach. Wilmer Flores knocked in two with his ninth home run of the season, but other than that, the offense was pretty quiet. At least the 51s had a second game of the day to try to redeem themselves.

Game 2


Las Vegas doubled up Albuquerque in the nightcap as Andrew Brown hit his fifteenth home run of the season, and Wilmer Flores put this one out of reach in the top of the seventh with his fifth big fly in three days. Matthew Bowman started and struck out five in three-and-two-third innings, and Miguel Socolovich relieved Bowman to earn his second win of the season. The 51s will look to split their series with the Isotopes in the final game today, when Noah Syndergaard will face off against Red Patterson at 8:05 ET.

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (51–36)______________________________________

Game 1


INF Rylan Sandoval (credit: Gordon Donovan)

The B-Mets were down to their last potential batter before they managed to put a runner on base by way of a hit. The SeaWolves' Tommy Collier watched what he believed to be the final out off the bat of Darrell Ceciliani skip off of right fielder Steven Moya's glove for Binghamton's lone hit of the night. Steven Matz was excellent in his own right, striking out seven and walking only one in his full seven innings of work, but on a night when his team was nearly no-hit, it was not enough.

Game 2


Binghamton's bats redeemed themselves in the night-cap on Saturday, and they wasted no time as Brandon Nimmo stole second in the bottom of the first to set up the Brian Burgamy RBI single. The B-Mets added two more in the bottom of the third when both Dustin Lawley and Darrell Ceciliani collected RBI singles of their own, and Binghamton cruised to an easy victory on the commanding performance of Hansel Robles. Robles was excellent in his five innings, striking out six while allowing only two hits and a lone walk. Binghamton will look for the split today when they send Rainy Lara to the mound at 6:35 ET.
  • LF Brandon Nimmo: 1–2, 2 R, 2 BB, SB (1)
  • 2B Dilson Herrera: 1–3, R, BB, K
  • DH Brian Burgamy: 1–2, 2 RBI, 2 BB, K, SB (4)
  • 3B Dustin Lawley: 1–4, RBI, K
  • CF Darrell Ceciliani: 1–3, RBI
  • 1B Jayce Boyd: 1–3
  • RF Travis Taijeron: 2–3, 2B
  • SS Rylan Sandoval: 0–3, 2 K
  • Kai Gronauer: 1–3, R
  • RHP Hansel Robles: 5 IP, 0 ER, 2 H, 1 BB, 6 K (W, 6–6)
  • LHP Chase Huchingson: 1 IP, 0 ER, 1 H, 1 BB, 1 K (H, 1)
  • RHP Cody Satterwhite: 1 IP, 0 ER, 1 H, 0 BB, 2 K

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (52–32)______________________________________


OF Gilbert Gomez (credit: Bryan Green)

It was a tight one, but the Mets managed to rack up their eighth win in a row on Saturday to take their season's record to 20 games over .500. St. Lucie looked to be in the driver's seat when Cam Maron swatted a two-run single off of Hammerheads' reliever Brad Mincey. But Brad Lugo, in relief of John Lannan, allowed four to cross in the top of the fifth to make it a one-run game. The bullpen held from there, and the Mets managed to hang on and hand Jake Kuebler his second win of the season. St. Lucie goes for the sweep today as they send Michael Fulmer to the bump to to take on Austin Brice and the Hammerheads at 1:00 ET.

Low-A - Savannah Sand Gnats (57–26)______________________________________


LHP Dario Alvarez (credit: Chris McShane)

Dario Alvarez was dominant on Saturday as he limited the Crawdads to just one run on three hits and a walk over five-and-one-third innings of eight-strikeout baseball. A cavalcade of relievers followed up to keep Hickory's bats in check, and Akeel Morris entered in the bottom of the ninth to finish it off with a three-strikeout save. The victory pushes the Sand Gnats' record to an eye-popping 31 games over .500. They will look to sweep the Crawdads today when they send Robert Gsellman to face off against Ricardo Rodriguez at 5:00 ET.

Short-A - Brooklyn Cyclones (11–9)______________________________________


3B Jhoan Urena (credit: Bryan Green)

The Cyclones' pitching staff melted down on Saturday with starter Casey Meisner taking the brunt of the punishment. If there's a bright spot, it's that the staff as a whole managed to punch out ten IronBird batters and they didn't give up a single home run in the midst of the mess. Too bad they yielded eight doubles. Brooklyn will look to avoid the sweep today at 1:00 ET.

Rookie Appalachian League - Kingsport Mets (7–9)______________________________________


Rookie - Gulf Coast League Mets (7–5)______________________________________


For those so inclined, box scores for the DSL Mets1 and DSL Mets2.

Star of the Night
For his powerful three-day stretch and his 3–7 line accompanied by a pair of home runs and five RBI, Wilmer Flores gets to be the brightest star.

Goat of the Night
While Brooklyn gave up the most runs, the 51s' Greg Peavey produced the ugliest line of the night. That's quite an accomplishment when a team in your system managed to allow 18 runs to cross the plate. For that, you get the horns.
