The GCL Mets crushed the GCL Nationals 11-1 Monday and are now 1/2 game out of 1st place in the GCL East. 4 2009 draftees participated. RF Cody Holliday was 0 for 4. OF ZeErika Hall got hit by a pitch as a pinch hitter in the 7th inning, stayed in the game as LF and had an RBI single in the 8th to finish 1 for 1. In the 3rd inning, my current reason for living C Nelfi Zapata, who acted as DH for this game, hit a bases loaded triple and finished the day 1 for 3 with those 3 RBI. 1 of the 3 runners Zapata drove in with that triple was RF Kurt Steinhauer who was on base after an RBI single. In the 8th inning Steinhauer hit a triple of his own, driving in 2 runs, and he wound up 2 for 5 with 2 runs scored and 3 RBI. For more check out the box score and recap.
