In a minor move made Sunday, the Mets traded catcher Blake Forsythe to Oakland for future considerations. Forsythe was a 3rd round pick in 2010, but despite some decent power he’s never hit for a high average and has struck out a lot. He’s yet to play this season, as the Mets have more important catching prospects in the upper levels that need at bats. Now onto Sunday’s games:
Las Vegas 10, Fresno 4
Rafael Montero had a no-hitter going through 5 innings then ended up going 6.1 innings, giving up 2 runs on 2 hits and 2 walks, striking out 4. Chris Young led off the game with a homer and then went 5 for 5 with a double, 2 homers, and 5 RBI’s. Eric Campbell and Matt den Dekker both doubled. Wilmer Flores committed his 3rd fielding error of the season at shortstop.
Binghamton 6, New Hampshire 0
Hansel Robles threw 5 shutout innings, giving up 4 hits and 2 walks while striking out 6. Cody Satterwhite threw 2 shutout innings and John Church and Jon Velasquez each threw a shutout inning, combining for 5 strike outs to complete the shutout. Darrell Ceciliani and Wilfredo Tovar had 2 hits each. Dustin Lawley and Cory Vaughn both doubled and drove in a run.
St. Lucie 6, Fort Myers 2
Domingo Tapia threw 5 no-hit innings, striking out 2 and walking 2. Seth Lugo gave up 2 runs in 3.2 innings and got into trouble in the 9th, forcing Randy Fontanez to record the final out, picking up the save. Dilson Herrera was 4 for 5 with a double. Brandon Nimmo and Aderlin Rodriguez also doubled. Gilbert Gomez was 2 for 2 with a homer, 2 RBI’s, and 2 walks.
