Another Met game attending by moi, another win. Time to get season tix! The B-Mets were rained out, but other than that it was victory all around. Let’s take a look!
Buffalo 2, Columbus 1
Matt Tuiasasopo singled in Fred Lewis with the go ahead run, and then Val Pascucci scored on a groundout for insurance to give the Herd the win. Pedro Beato got the win in relief, going a scoreless inning. Matt Harvey started for Buffalo and had a pretty solid outing. In six innings, he gave up only one run on three hits and five strikeouts. The only blemish was the three walks he issued. That’s 26 in 59 innings. It would be nice to see that tick down a bit in the coming weeks.
St. Lucie 9, Palm Beach 1
Cory Mazzoni may be destined for the bullpen, but damn! Mazzoni stymied the Cardinals over seven innings, allowing a run on three hits and a walk against six strikeouts. His ERA for the year is now 3.10. Kyle Allen and Ryan Fraser each chucked a scoreless innings to close it out. Fortunately for the hurlers, the offense put this away early, so they could relax. Wilmer Flores was 3 for 4 with a two run homer, three RBI, and two runs scored, and former Cyclone teammates Cory Vaughn ((3 RBI) and Darrel Ceciliani (1 RBI, 2 runs) both went 3 for 5.
Savannah 12, Greenville 2
TJ Rivera (2 run), Charlie Thurber (3 run) and Travis Taijeron (3 run) all homered in the Sand Gnats nineteen (!) hit barrage. 1B Cole Frenzel was the lone starter without a hit. The pitching left a little to be desired, however, as evidenced by the thirteen (!) hits allowed. Domingo Tapia started and struggled a bit. He only gave up a run in four innings, but surrendered seven hits and three walk sin the process. That’ll get you out of a game early. Marcos Camarena got the win in relief, going two innings and allowing one run.
