Last night on the farm Matt Harvey had some success, Jenrry Mejia didn’t, the Lucies got back to doing what they do, and so did the Gnats. Let’s take a look:
Buffalo 6, Scranton Wilkes/Barre 2
Matt Harvey won his 5th straight decision with another good outing. He went 5.1 innings, giving up 2 runs on 4 hits. However, he only struck out 2 while walking 1. Elvin Ramirez continued his AAA dominance with 1.2 scoreless innings with 1 walk and 2 strikeouts. Ramirez has allowed 3 hits and 1 walk while striking out 12 in 10.2 innings in AAA. Omar Quintanilla led the Herd offensively with 3 hits and 3 RBI’s. Josh Satin, Jordany Valdespin, Lucas May, and Dustin Martin all had 2 hits each. Valdespin started the game at second base, where he’s expected to get most of his playing time for now.
New Britain 6, Binghamton 4
It wasn’t an ideal rehab start for Jenrry Mejia in his second appearance for the B-Mets. Mejia pitched 5 innings (75 pitches) and gave up 4 runs, including 3 in the 1st inning, on 5 hits, while walking 3 and striking out 5. His next start will be for Buffalo. Gonzalez Germen piggy backed for 3 innings and gave up 2 runs and took the loss. Matt Den Dekker started a new hit streak, going 3 for 5 with a homer. Raul Reyes and Eric Campbell both had 2 hits each. Reese Havens was 1 for 4 with a double.
St. Lucie 5, Daytona 2
Yohan Almonte put together a nice outing, going 5.2 innings and giving up just 1 run on 8 hits. Hamilton Bennett and Ryan Fraser took it the rest of the way. Wilmer Flores and Robbie Shields both had 3 hits each. Rylan Sandoval had 2 hits. Cory Vaughn belted a homer for the second straight day; he has 10, which eclipses the 9 he had the second half of the season last year for St. Lucie.
Augusta 3, Savannah 2 10 innings
Tyler Pill had another good outing, lasting for 7.1 innings, allowing 2 unearned runs on 5 hits, while striking out 5. Jeffrey Walters gave up a run in 1.1 innings and took the loss. Gilbert Gomez was 3 for 4 with a double and a walk. He’s played just 5 games since getting promoted from extended spring training, but he is off to a great start. Travis Taijeron had 2 hits including a double. Albert Cordero doubled, but is hitting a disappointing .176. Aderlin Rodriguez hit his 6th homer of the year to give the Gnats both their runs.
