Binghamton was rained out last night, but Savannah was able to complete its game from the previous night and play its regularly scheduled game, so it’s kind of a wash. Let’s take a look:
Las Vegas 6, Fresno 3
Jacob deGrom threw 7 shutout innings, allowing 3 hits and 1 walk while striking out 4. Ryan Reid gave up 3 runs in the 8th but Josh Edgin threw a scoreless 9th to pick up the save. The lineup faced by deGrom and the others included Mike Jacobs and Nick Evans, as well as Cody Ross and possible future Mets shortstop Didi Gregorius. Eric Campbell, Wilmer Flores, Allan Dykstra, Matt den Dekker, and Juan Centeno all had 2 hits. Flores doubled and homered. Dykstra, den Dekker, and Centeno all doubled. Chris Young was 1 for 4 with a double in his final rehab game.

Savannah 3, Augusta 1 (started Monday)
Dario Alvarez took over for Kevin McGowan and after allowing an inherited runner to score he threw 4.2 scoreless innings, striking out 6 and getting the win. Gavin Cecchini hit a solo homer while L.J. Mazzilli and Colton Plaia both doubled, and those were the only 3 hits of the game for the Gnats.
Augusta 2, Savannah 1 (8 innings)
This game was played like the back end of a double header, but was tied after 7. Ricky Knapp struck out 8 in 7.1 innings but took the loss after John Mincone allowed an inherited runner to score in the bottom of the 8th. Jeff McNeil and Jared King had 2 hits each. Gavin Cecchini was ejected after arguing a called 3rd strike in the 8th inning. In 10 games this season, Cecchini is hitting .238/.304/.405. with 2 homers, 1 double, and 7 RBI’s.
