Yikes. Who’s up for recaps of well played minor league baseball games? Better go elsewhere. The rest of you? Don’t say you weren’t warned….
Pawtucket 15, Buffalo 1
Oh good Lord, where to start? Zach Lutz went 2 for 3! Fernando Martinez is hitting .313. Reuben Tejada is hitting .316. Casey Fossum, on the other hand, got scathed for 7 runs on 8 hits in just 4.1 innings. His ERA is 14.31. Dylan Owen also gave up 7 runs in an inning and a third, but only two of his were earned, bringing his ERA down to a scant 13.50
Erie 7, Binghamton 3
Raoul Reyes went 2 for 3 and is hitting .293, while Kai Gronauer went 1 for 3 with a solo homer run. Other than that the B-Mets offense is pretty anemic. That’s not good news for the pitching staff, which was walking the tightrope until the 7th inning. Brandon Moore started and labored through 4.1 innings, giving up 3 runs on 4 hits with one BB and 3 K’s. In the 7th, however, Eric Niesen and Erik Turgeon gave up 4 runs which, with this offense, was more than the Sea Wolves needed.
St. Lucie 9, Fort Myers 2
It’s a miracle! Actually, it wasn’t the Miracle’s night as the PSL Mets were the only farm affiliate to win yesterday, and they had their hittin’ shoes on. Australian Stefan Welch was 2 for 4 with 3 RBI’s, and Jefry Marte was 2 for 4 as well, with 2 runs scored. Also, former Cyclone great Juan Centeno chipped in a 3 for 5 effort. Colin McHugh allowed a lot of base runners (6 hits and 3 walks in 5 innings), but danced through the proverbial raindrops to earn his first win of the season.
Hickory 9, Savannah 1
Enjoy that last entry? Good. Because it’s back to the drubbings. Eric Goeddel got tagged for 4 runs on 6 hits in 4 innings, and thing just got worse form there. Angel Cuan went 3.2 innings, allowing 5 runs on 7 hits. Offensively, best to just move along. Sand Gnats could muster only three hits on the night, though Javier Rodriguez did belt a solo home run.
