Despite a few good pitching performances, the Mets’ bats fell silent on the farm last night, with Brandon Nimmo being the lone exception.  Let’s take a look:

 

Reno 3, Las Vegas 0

 

Dana Eveland struck out 8 and allowed 1 run on 5.2 innings.  Vic Black walked 2 and allowed an unearned run in 1 inning of work.  Erik Goeddel struck out the side in his only inning of work.  Juan Lagares was 1 for 4 with a strikeout and played all 9 innings in centerfield.  Andrew Brown doubled, but Vegas only had 5 total hits.  Wilmer Flores didn't start, but he did have a pinch-hitting appearance after jamming his finger over the weekend.

 

Akron 4, Binghamton 0

 

Tyler Pill was finally good, but the B-Mets’ bats provided little support.  Pill gave up 1 run on 3 hits over 5 innings, striking out 4 and walking 2.  After T.J. Chism threw 2 shutout innings, Adam Kolarek gave up 3 unearned runs in the 8th after back-to-back errors to start the inning, putting the game out of reach.  The B-Mets had just 4 hits, with 3 of them coming from Matt Reynolds.  Of course, Reynolds also committed 2 of the team’s 3 errors.

 

St. Lucie 7, Charlotte 3

 

Matt Koch was solid, giving up 2 runs on 4 hits over 6 innings, walking 2 and striking out 5.  Jake Kuebler threw 2 shutout innings in relief.  Brandon Nimmo was 4 for 4 with a double, homer, and 2 RBI’s.  Jairo Perez, Aderlin Rodriguez, and Eudy Pina also homered.  T.J. Rivera was 2 for 4 with a double.
