Last night on the farm Brooklyn won, as they chase a playoff berth, while the rest of the organization lost.
Scranton W/B 7, Buffalo 5
The roving Yankees got the best of Chris Schwinden, who gave up 4 runs, including 2 homeruns, despite 8 strikeouts. C.J. Nitkowski gave up a couple runs, the first he’s surrendered since being signed by the Mets. The Herd pounded out 10 hits, including 2 each by Fred Lewis, Josh Satin, and Matt Den Dekker (who’s all the way up to .219). Lucas Duda and Zach Lutz both went 0 for 4.
New Hampshire 3, Binghamton 2
Darin Gorski threw 7 good innings, allowing 3 runs (2 earned) on 4 hits and 4 walks while striking out 9, but he took the loss. Ryan Fraser had 2 scoreless innings out of the bullpen with 2 strikeouts. Juan Lagares was 2 for 4. Wilmer Flores and Allan Dykstra each hit a double. After 51 games in AA Flores is hitting .289/.336/.418, which is an identical average and OBP that he had in St. Lucie this year, but the slugging is 45 points fewer in AA.
Asheville 5, Savannah 2
Alex Panteliodis let up 3 runs on 9 hits and took the loss. Matt Reynolds hit his 3rd homer of the season, giving the Gnats their only runs of the game.
Brooklyn 6, Vermont 2
Julian Hilario threw 6 shutout innings, striking out 4. Logan Taylor and Tyler Vanderheiden took it the rest of the way, both surrendering an unearned run. Taylor struck out 4 in 2 innings and Vanderheiden struck out 2 in 1 inning. Phillip Evans led the way offensively going 3 for 4. Alexander Sanchez was 2 for 5. Stefan Sabol and Eudy Pina both homered. Pina’s homer was a 3-run shot that was part of a 4-run 2nd inning. Brandon Nimmo was 1 for 3 with 2 walks and 2 runs scored.
Burlington 5, Kingsport 4 (12 innings)
This was supposed to be a double header, but game 2 got cancelled, so they decided to make game 1 last 12 innings. After taking the lead in the 11th, the K-Mets gave up the lead in the bottom half of the inning before losing in the 12th. John Gant continued to pitch well, going 5.1 innings and giving up just 1 run while striking out 5. Jorge Rivero was 3 for 4 with a homer. Jonathan Leroux also homered. The K-Mets will play a double header each of the next 2 days.
