Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (4-5)_______________________________________
FRESNO 11, LAS VEGAS 10 (Box)
Ah, the first proper PCL game of the season really.The 51s battled back from an 8-3 deficit with a six-run sixth, only to see Duane Below give it back in the seventh with a pair of bombs. The teams combined for 30 hits, 11 extra-base hits, and five home runs. Viva Las Vegas!
- CF Darrell Ceciliani: 0-6
- 2B Dilson Herrera: 2-6, K
- C Kevin Plawecki: 3-5, RBI
- 3B Wilfredo Tovar: 1-5, 2B, R, RBI, 2 E (2)
- SS Matt Reynolds:2-5, 2B, 2 R, 3 RBI, K, E (1); This ship has sailed, but Matt Reynolds was such a good college third baseman, the Mets moved him to shortstop as a pro.
- RHP Tyler Pill: 1.2 IP, 6 H, 6 R, 6 ER, 1 BB, 0 K, 1 HR; Vegas has messed a bit with good prospects' numbers, but it has absolutely obliterated the org guys'
- LHP Jack Leathersich 0.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 0 K; 7 K and 0 BB in 3 IP this year. Meaningful? Probably not, but something worth monitoring.
- RHP Chasen Bradford: 1.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 1 K
Double-A - Binghamton Mets (6-3)_____________________________________
BINGHAMTON 8, HARRISBURG 7 (Box)
It was fireworks night at NYSEG stadium, and the B-Mets started the show early with a walkoff win. A three-run double from Jayce Boyd in the ninth bailed out a poor pitching performance from Gabriel Ynoa and the Binghamton bullpen. Other highlights include Aderlin Rodriguez's second home run of the year, which I assume went a very, very long way.
Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (5-4)_____________________________________
FORT MYERS 7, ST. LUCIE 0 (Box)
Chih-Wei Hu outdueled Marcos Molina, and the less said about this game, the better.
- CF Champ Stuart: 0-4, 4 K; The BP hot sheet jinx is in full effect
- LF Michael Conforto: 0-4, 2 K
- 1B Dominic Smith: 1-3, K, E (1)
- SS Amed Rosario: 1-3, K
- 3B Jhoan Urena: 0-3
- RHP Marcos Molina: 5 IP, 5 H, 6 R, 2 ER, 3 BB, 6 K, 1 HR, E (1); Didn't anyone tell Molina and Ynoa I was on farm report duty today?
- LHP Kyle Regnault: 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 3 K, Balk; Indy ball signing was reportedly up to 95 from the left side. Hope that bird dog got a raise.
Low-A - Savannah Sand Gnats (3-5)__________________________________
- RF Wuilmer Becerra: 0-4, 2 K
- CF John Mora: 0-3, 2 K
- DH Vicente Lupo: 1-3, RBI, K; I have a soft spot for Lupo, but DH is probably his natural position.
- SS Luis Guillorme: 2-4, R; The only Savannah regular not to strike out, Guillorme is posting a 4:7 K:BB ratio in the very, very early going. Toby Hyde had more on Guillorme this week in his Top 41.
- 3B Pedro Perez: 0-3, R, BB, 2 K, E (1)
- C Tomas Nido: 1-4, 2B, R, K
- LHP Brad Wieck: 4 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 4 BB, 3 K
- RHP Jimmy Duff: 3 IP, 1 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 5 K; No idea why Duff isn't in the rotation, wonder if he eventually transitions into some sort of a piggyback role.
CHARLESTON 4, SAVANNAH 3 (Box)
The Sand Gnats struck out 12 times against only six hits, that does not usually lead to offensive success.
Star of the Night
Jayce Boyd and his walk-off heroics
Goat of the Night
Very few rules around this place, but the golden sombrero gets you put down here, Champ Stuart.
