Last night was a rough night on the farm, save for a nice outing from Matt Harvey and another win by the Cyclones over the hated Yankees. Let’s take a look.
Buffalo 6, Norfolk 1
Matt Harvey had another good outing, allowing 1 run on 6 hits in 6 innings while walking 2 and striking out 7. He ran into some trouble in the first couple innings but was able to work his way out of it. Jenrry Mejia pitched 2 innings allowing just 1 hit and striking out 2. Rob Johnson was 2 for 4 with a double. Matt Den Dekker was 1 for 4 with a triple. Ronny Cedeno was 1 for 5 with an RBI while playing shortstop.
Akron 6, Binghamton 4 (10 innings)

Akron 4, Binghamton 2 (7 innings)
Mark Cohoon pitched all 6 innings giving up 4 runs on 7 hits and striking out 5. Josh Rodriguez had 2 of the B-Mets 5 hits, including a homerun. Reese Havens, Dustin Martin, and Juan Centeno had the other 3 hits.
Bradenton 7, St. Lucie 0
The Lucies struggled on the mound and at the plate in an ugly loss. Erik Goeddel let up 3 runs (2 earned) on 4 hits and 3 walks through 5.1 innings, but he did strike out 7. Jack Leathersich and John Church also gave up 2 runs each. Alonzo Harris and Blake Forsythe both singled to give St. Lucie their only hits of the game. Ruben Tejada was 0 for 4 with a strikeout; he’s 1 for 9 on rehab thus far.
Brooklyn 4, Staten Island 1

John Mincone pitched 2.1 scoreless innings in relief and Jeremy Gould struck out the side in the 9th to earn the save. Cole Frenzel led the way offensively going 3 for 5 with an RBI and 2 runs scored. Alexander Sanchez was 2 for 5. Brandon Nimmo was 1 for 3 with 2 walks.
Princeton 8, Kingsport 4
Akeel Morris did not have a season debut, lasting 3 plus innings and allowing 6 runs (4 earned) on 6 hits. On the plus side he only walked 1, but he also only struck out 2.

SAL North 3, SAL South 2
The Sand Gnats all-star trio was on the losing side of things. T.J. Chism pitched the 8th and gave up a run that would ultimately be the difference in the game. T.J. Rivera was 1 for 2. Travis Taijeron was 0 for 2 with a strikeout. Taijeron failed to hit a homerun in the finals of the SAL homerun derby.
