Last Night on the Farm - 4/13/13
Last night on the farm both Noah Synergaard and Steven Matz took the mound, one star prospect got plunked twice, and we had our first ejection of the season. Let’s take a closer look: Colorado Springs 11, Las Vegas 6Darin Gorski got roughed up, giving up 5 runs in 2 innings, with 4 walks and no strikeouts. Gonzalez Germen gave up 2 more in 3 innings of work and Justin Hampson gave up 3 more. On the bright side, Robert Carson threw 1.2 hitless innings with 3 strikeouts and Jeurys Familia threw a hitless inning with 1 walk and 2 strikeouts. Wilmer Flores and Travis d’Arnaud were both 2 for 5 with 2 doubles each. Josh Satin was 2 for 2 with a homer, 3 RBI’s, and 3 walks. Juan Lagares, Brian Bixler, and Andrew Brown had 2 hits each. New Hampshire 6, Binghamton 1The B-Mets dropped a matinee on a cold, rainy day in upstate New York. Erik Goeddel lasted 4.1 innings, striking out 7 and only giving up 1 hit, but he walked 4, threw a wild pitch and gave up 2 runs. Adrian Rosario followed and gave up 3 runs, putting the game out of reach. Richard Lucas had 2 of the B-Mets 5 hits. Lucas drove in Alonzo Harris after he singled and stole second base for the only run of the game. Darrell Ceciliani was ejected mid at-bat in the 6th inning, presumably for arguing balls and strikes. He threw his helmet on the field following the ejection. Bradenton 4, St. Lucie 3The Lucies are the victim as Bradenton finally got its first win of the season after 8 straight losses. Noah Syndergaard gave up 2 runs on 4 hits in 5 innings, but struggled with his control, walking 4 while striking out 8. Estarlin Morel took the loss after giving up 2 runs in 2 innings. T.J. Rivera and Gilbert Gomez had 2 hits each. Matt Reynolds was 1 for 4 with a double. Aderlin Rodriguez was 0 for 4 and is now hitting .139. Savannah 8, Rome 6Steven Matz had a rather excellent night, pitching 5 innings and giving up 1 unearned run on 4 hits and a walk while striking out 7. Tim Peterson tried to give the game away by allowing 4 runs, but Julian Hilario and Hunter Carnevale did enough damage control to give the Gnats a win. Jayce Boyd was 1 for 4 with a 3-run homer and 4 RBI’s. Yucary De La Cruz, Kevin Plawecki, Jeffrey Glenn, and Cole Frenzel all had doubles. Brandon Nimmo was 0 for 1 with an RBI and 2 runs scored after getting hit by the pitch twice. Phillip Evans was 0 for 4 with 2 errors, one throwing and one fielding.
