Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (29-20)_______________________________________


Darin Gorski survived four innings, only giving up two runs despite a 2:3 K:BB ratio, and the 51s bullpen held Nashville scoreless for the rest of the game. Unfortunately, the Las Vegas offense took the night off, scoring only one run on a Brandon Allen sac fly in the top of the fourth.

  • SS Matt Reynolds: 2-4, R, 2K; nice bounce back by Reynolds, but the strikeouts are way too high
  • RF Alex Castellanos: 2-4, K
  • DH Jayce Boyd: 0-3, K
  • 2B TJ Rivera: 0-4, K
  • SP Darin Gorski: 4 IP , 3 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 3 BB, 2 K
  • RP Logan Verrett: 3 IP, 2 BB, 2 K
  • RP Zach Thornton: IP, K

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (25-23)_____________________________________


Altoona starter Angel Sanchez stymied the Mets for seven innings, limiting the scoring to a solo home run from Josh Rodriguez. Michael Fulmer pitched a decent six innings with too many walks, but only gave up one run. Rehabbing Bobby Parnell allowed the deciding run to score in the seventh. Recent promotion Michael Conforto did not make his debut, hopefully we'll get our first glimpse of the Mets' 2014 first-round pick in Double-A over the weekend.

  • SS Gavin Cecchini: 2-4, K; average up to .303
  • 3B Josh Rodriguez: 1-4, HR, RBI
  • SP Michael Fulmer: 6 IP, 5 H, R, ER, 4 BB, 5 K; hit 96 on one pitch
  • REHAB ALERT - RP Bobby Parnell: 1 IP, H, R, BB, K; velocity around 92

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (6-3)_____________________________________


St. Lucie scored six runs in the bottom of the third inning to carry the day, with hot hitters Amed Rosario and Dominic Smith contributing an RBI apiece. Kevin McGowan pitched an acceptable game, and Akeel Morris locked down the save with two shutout innings.

  • SS Amed Rosario: 1-4, R, RBI, K; average up to .276 as the youngest player in the league
  • 1B Dominic Smith:1-4, R, 2B , RBI; yet another double for Smith, who has his average up to .250 and his wRC+ up to 95 after a putrid start
  • OF Champ Stuart: 2-5, R, 3K; all he does is K, K, K no matter what
  • 2B Jeff McNeil: 2-4, R
  • DH Matt Oberste: 1-4, R, 2B, 3 RBI, K
  • SP Kevin McGowan: 5.1 IP, 6 H, 3 R, ER, 2 BB, 3 K
  • RP Akeel Morris: 2 IP, H, RR, 3 K, SV

Low-A - Savannah Sand Gnats (23-25)__________________________________


Apparently the Sand Gnats thought they were playing in Vegas last night, surviving a slugfest with Charleston and moving within two games of .500. Wuilmer Becerra had a perfect night at the plate, drove in three, and walked once. Catcher Thomas Nido contributed with three RBIs of his own.

  • DH Wuilmer Becerra: 4-4, 3 R, 3B , 3 RBI, BB; big night for Becerra, improving raising his OBP back over .300
  • SS Luis Guillorme: 1-4, R
  • C Thomas Nido: 3-5, R, 2B, 3 RBI
  • 2B Jonathan Johnson: 2-5, 2R, BB, K
  • SP Martires Arias: 5.2 IP, 3 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 2 BB, 8 K

Star of the Night

Wuilmer Becerra, Dickey be praised.

Goat of the Night

The entirety of the 51s' offense, for failing to put up more than one run in the most run-friendly league in baseball.
