Last night was an off night on the farm, salvaged by a strong performance by the team’s top prospect. Let’s take a look:
Las Vegas 5, Fresno 2
Noah Syndergaard struck out 5 in 5 innings, allowing 2 runs on 5 hits. Joel Carreno threw 2 scoreless innings, and Josh Edgin and Jeff Walters each threw a scoreless frame. Chris Young was 2 for 3 with 2 walks. Matt den Dekker was 2 for 4 with a double and RBI. Cesar Puello also doubled. Eric Campbell’s 10-game hitting streak came to an end.
Portland 9, Binghamton 4
Greg Peavey struck out 7 on 5.1 innings, but he also walked 4, which led to 5 runs on just 2 hits. Adam Kolarek didn’t fair much better, giving up 3 runs in 1.2 innings. Jack Leathersich threw an inning and gave up 1 run on 3 hits, with 1 walk and 1 strikeout. Brian Burgamy and Matt Clark both hit their 4th homer of the season. Meanwhile, the B-Mets real prospects continued to struggle, as Jayce Boyd, Dustin Lawley, and Cory Vaughn are all hitting under .200. On the bright side, Kevin Plawecki and Matt Reynolds both doubled, and both are hitting a solid .286.
Jupiter 12, St. Lucie 3
Luis Cessa took the loss after giving up 2 runs on 6 hits over 5 innings, walking 2 and striking out 2. The St. Lucie bullpen kept the game out of reach, as Julian Hilario and Brett Mitchell each gave up 5 runs. Despite 13 hits, the Lucies only managed to score 3 runs. Brandon Nimmo, T.J. Rivera, Aderlin Rodriguez, Robbie Shields, and Maikis De La Cruz all had 2 hits each. De La Cruz doubled and homered. Dilson Herrera also doubled.
Savannah 0, Augusta 0 (Suspended in 5th inning)
Kevin McGowan threw 4.1 scoreless innings when the game was suspended. It will be finished today before the regularly scheduled game between the two teams. The Savannah offense was held hitless through the first 5 innings before the game was suspended.
