Double-A - Binghamton Mets (76-63)_____________________________________

READING LEADS SERIES 1-0

READING 9, BINGHAMTON 4 (Box)

The B-Mets didn't really put up much of a fight in the first game of their series with Reading. Tyler Pill gave up four runs in the first inning, and three more in the fifth, putting Binghamton in a major hole fairly early on. It didn't help much that Zach Eflin, the Fightin Phils starter was on point, pitching seven innings of one run ball. His one mistake came in the second, when Vince Belnome blasted a solo home run. Beck Wheeler gave up a pair of runs in the sixth, but the triumvirate of Adam Kolarek, Josh Smoker, and Akeel Morris combined to throw three scoreless innings in the seventh, eighth, and ninth, respectively. The offense was able to make it a somewhat respectable score, plating one in the seventh and two in the eighth to make it a 9-4 ballgame, but ultimately fell short.

Down one game to none, Binghamton will look to get things back on track tonight. Jake Thompson (11-7, 3.73 ERA) is slated to pitch for Reading, while Binghamton will send Rob Gsellman (13-7, 2.89 ERA) to the mound.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (68-70 / 33-35)_____________________________________

Low-A - Savannah Sand Gnats (84-53 / 45-22)__________________________________

ASHEVILLE LEADS SERIES 1-0

ASHEVILLE 5, SAVANNAH 1 (Box)

Asheville went hitless the first time through the order, but had much more success against Martires Arias the second time around. With a man on in the fourth, Arias served up a home run to second baseman Forrest Wall, giving the Tourists a 2-0 lead. After striking out the next two batters, he served up another home run, this time to first baseman Roberto Ramos, making it a 3-0 game.

Savannah got on the board in the sixth, when Eudor Garcia hit a line drive into center that scored South Atlantic League MVP Luis Guillorme, but the run hardly when Asheville added two more of their own in the bottom of the inning. Ben Griset, Tim Peterson, and Paul Paez all kept the Tourists off the board late in the game, but the offense was unable to plate another run off of starter Jesus Tinoco, who went seven and a third, or Jerry Vasto, who finished up the ballgame.

The Sand Gnats will head home for game two of the series on Friday. Ricky Knapp (8-3, 2.60 ERA) will be getting the start for them, while the Tourists will be sending Carlos Polanco (9-10, 3.90

On a final note, if this is the last Mets Daily Prospect Report I write for the 2015 season, I just want to say thank you for everyone who reads, and everyone that comments and debates the Mets' minor league system.
