Triple-A - Las Vegas 51's (3-2)_______________________________________


  • 2B Dilson Herrera: 1-4, R, RBI, BB, K
  • SS Matt Reynolds: 2-4, 2 R, 3B, RBI, BB, K
  • 1B Eric Campbell: 3-5, R, HR, RBI
  • 3B Alex Castellanos: 1-4, R, BB
  • LF Cory Vaughn: 1-5
  • RF Travis Taijeron: 2-3, R, HR, 2 RBI
  • Kevin Plawecki: 0-5, K
  • CF Kyle Johnson: 3-4, R; Watched a bit of the game last and found out that Johnson is REALLY fast.
  • RHP Noah Syndergaard: 4 IP, 7 H, 3 R, 2 ER, BB, 2 K; Syndergaard pitched okay in the innings he was allowed. The only velocity reading I heard was a 95 MPH fastball, which sounds about right. It was mostly fastballs all night and when you combine that with the 60 pitch limit, the forearm stiffness, and the MRI, it's a bit disconcerting.

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (3-1)_____________________________________


Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (3-2)_____________________________________


The St. Lucie Mets couldn't get much going offensively last night and, despite this being the most exciting affiliate in the organization, I have a feeling there are going to be a lot of these nights to come. Aggressive assignments coupled with the inevitable promotion of Michael Conforto could mean a lot of low scoring nights. The challenge will be to not get discouraged if some of these guys get off to slow starts.

  • CF Champ Stuart: 0-3, BB, 2 K
  • 2B Jeff McNeil: 0-3, R, BB, K
  • LF Michael Conforto: 0-4
  • 1B Matt Oberste: 1-4, 3B, RBI
  • DH Dominic Smith: 0-3
  • SS Amed Rosario: 1-3, 2B, CS; I'll admit to being shocked when I saw Rosario assigned to St. Lucie, especially because my only lasting memory of him in Savannah last year was his five-strikeout debut. (Apparently he had 30 at-bats and hit a home run in low-A last year. I have no memory of this.) I think it's encouraging that the front office thinks he's ready for this kind of challenge.
  • 3B Jhoan Urena: 0-3, K
  • RF Victor Cruzado: 1-3, 2B, K
  • RHP Rob Whalen: 6 IP, 8 H, 2 R, 2 ER, BB, K

Low-A - Savannah Sand Gnats (2-3)__________________________________

SAVANNAH 5, ROME 2 (Box) Final/5 innings

You know it's minor league season when it's raining in the Sally and it did just that last night but not before Gnats squeezed in the fifth inning to make it an official game and chalk one up in the W column. Jon Leroux and Tomas Nido led the way offensively, combing for a couple of doubles and driving in all five runs. Martires Arias, all 6'7" of him, settled in after some early troubles to strike out six over his five innings to earn the win.

Star of the Night

Eric Campbell.

Goat of the Night

Kevin Plawecki.
