After a long stretch of wins, last night was a down night on the farm. Of course, it doesn’t seem like anything can slow down Vegas. Let’s have a look:
Las Vegas 11, Tacoma 3
Jacob deGrom pitched the first 5 innings, giving up 2 runs on 7 hits, walking 3 and striking out 2. Joel Carreno threw 3 shutout innings; he has a 1.74 ERA. Vic Black also threw a scoreless frame; he’s yet to allow a run this season, but he’s averaging a walk per inning. Matt den Dekker was 2 for 4 with 2 RBI’s. Taylor Teagarden hit 2 homers and drove in 5 runs. Andrew Brown also homered. Eric Campbell played shortstop and went 2 for 5; he’s hitting .351.
