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.
