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.

 

Savannah 6, Rome 2

 

Chris Flexen was much improved in his second start of the season, lasting 6.1 innings, giving up 2 runs on 6 hits, striking out 4.  Akeel Morris struck out 3 in 2.2 scoreless innings, allowing 1 hit and 1 walk.  Gavin Cecchini was 2 for 5 with a double and 2 RBI’s.  Patrick Biondi was 2 for 3 with a triple.  Stefan Sabol doubled and drove in 2 runs.  Jeff McNeil hit a 2-run homer.
