Triple-A - Las Vegas 51's (8-8)_______________________________________
LAS VEGAS 12, RENO 0 (Box)
Steven Matz had a no-hitter through six-and-two-thirds and ended up with as many hits of his own as he gave up in the contest. Dilson Herrera and Matt Reynolds stayed hot as the 51s offered more than enough offensive support.
- 2B Dilson Herrera: 2-6, R, 2 RBI; I wonder how long the Mets let Murphy struggle before giving Herrera a shot.
- 3B Wilfredo Tovar: 1-6, R, RBI
- SS Matt Reynolds: 2-4, HR, 3 RBI, BB, K
- OF Travis Taijeron: 0-3, 2 R, RBI, BB, 3 K
- C Dan Rohlfing: 1-5, R, RBI
- LHP Steven Matz: 7 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 5 K; also went 2-3 at the plate
- LHP Jack Leathersich: 1 IP, 0 BB, 2 K; another walkless outing for Leathersich, who has his BB/9 at 2.57 through 8.1 innings
Double-A - Binghamton Mets (8-7)_____________________________________
NEW HAMPSHIRE 10, BINGHAMTON 5 (Box)
Gabriel Ynoa got beat up in this one, allowing six runs in four-and-two-third innings. Jared King homered and Brandon Nimmo had a good day at the plate, but Binghamton was unable to pull this one back. Gavin Cecchini missed another game dealing with a groin issue.
Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (8-8)_____________________________________
ST. LUCIE 4, FORT MYERS 3 (Box)
A 17-inning marathon ended with a Maikis De La Cruz sacrifice fly to score Champ Stuart. Michael Conforto went hitless but walked three times, and youngsters Amed Rosario and Jhoan Urena had two hits a piece. Dominic Smith left the game with a leg injury in the bottom of the second inning.
- CF Champ Stuart: 1-6, R, BB, 4 K; a golden sombrero for Champ, who still needs to improve his contact if his 80 speed is ever going to make the majors
- LF Michael Conforto: 0-5, 3 BB; all three walks were intentional, not surprising given the mockery Conforto has made of High-A (172 wRC+)
- RF Maiks De La Cruz: 1-7, R, RBI, 2 K
- 1B Dominic Smith: 1-1, R; left the game with an injury
- 2B Jeff McNeil: 3-7, K
- SS Amed Rosario: 2-7, 2 K
- 3B Jhoan Urena: 2-7, 2B, 2 RBI, K
- RHP Logan Taylor: 7 IP, 2 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 6 K, HR
- RHP Akeel Morris: 2 IP, 3 K
Low-A - Savannah Sand Gnats (5-10)__________________________________
CHARLESTON 1, SAVANNAH 0 (Box)
The Sand Gnats continued to struggle, getting shut out Friday night by the Charleston RiverDogs. Casey Meisner pitched very well, allowing only one run in six innings, but Savannah could only muster three hits in the game.
- RF Wuilmer Becerra: 0-4, 2 K
- CF John Mora: 0-4
- SS Luis Guillorme: 0-3, BB, 2 K
- C Tomas Nido: 1-3, BB, K
- RHP Casey Meisner: 6 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 5 K; Meisner is off to a fast start with a 2.12 ERA and a strikeout per inning over his first three outings
Star of the Night
Steven Matz, for taking a no-hitter into the seventh and slashing two hits of his own.
Goat of the Night
The Sand Gnats offense was pretty bad, but this has to go to Gabriel Ynoa for getting shelled in New Hampshire yesterday.
