Last night on the farm, there were four games that didn’t require 8 inches of snow removal beforehand, although the results weren’t all that great. Sacramento 2, Las Vegas 1Collin McHugh let up an unearned run (Wilmer Flores error) in the 1st inning, but then settled in for 5.2 innings giving up 7 hits and 3 walks with 3 strikeouts. Robert Carson threw a shutout inning and Gonzalez Germen took the loss. Juan Lagares had 3 hits, but the rest of his team combined for just 2. Binghamton 7, Portland 3This one had a delay for rain, not snow. Logan Verrett had a nice outing, lasting 6.2 innings and only allowing 2 runs on 4 hits, giving up 3 walks and striking out 6. Jack Leathersich got 3 outs, all Ks, and gave up 2 hits. Jeffrey Walters gave up a run but got the final 4 outs, including 3 Ks. Cory Vaughn was 3 for 4 with an RBI. Francisco Pena was 2 for 3 with a double and 2 RBI’s. Josh Rodriguez also had 2 hits, including a double. Cesar Puello was 1 for 3 with a triple, a walk, an RBI, a stolen base (his 5th of the season), and 2 runs scored. St. Lucie 13, Charlotte 3Hansel Robles was solid, pitching 6 innings and allowing 3 runs on 4 hits with 2 walks and 3 strikeouts. Estarlin Morel and Wanel Mesa combined for 3 shutout innings out of the bullpen. Cam Maron was 3 for 5 with a triple and 3 RBI’s. Aderlin Rodriguez was 2 for 5 and hit his first homer of the season. Dustin Lawley hit a grand slam. All 9 starters had at least 1 hit. Gilbert Gomez had just 1 hit, breaking a string of 5 multi-hit games, as he’s quietly hitting .333/.415/.361 at the bottom of the order. Greensboro 9, Savannah 8Luis Cessa let up 4 runs (1 earned) on 3 hits in 5 innings of work, striking out 4. Jake Kuebler pitched 2 scoreless innings, but then gave up 2 runs in the 8th, blowing the Gnats lead. Savannah scored 3 runs in the top of the 9th to retake the lead, but Julian Hilario allowed 3 straights hits in the bottom of the 9th, the 3rd hit being a 3-run homer as the Grasshoppers had a “hop-off” win (pun intented). Brandon Nimmo was in the leadoff spot again and went 3 for 5 with a strikeout; he’s hitting .447/.518/.574. Jayce Boyd and Jeffrey Glenn had 2 hits each. Kevin Plawecki and Jeff Reynolds both homered. The only starter not to get at least 1 hit was Phillip Evans. Of course, Evans was at a disadvantage because he only had 2 at bats before being ejected.
