It was yet another sluggish night on the farm for Mets hitters, leading to more losses than wins. Let’s have a look:
Reno 7, Las Vegas 5
Rafael Montero as a bit off, allowing 5 runs (3 earned) in 4 innings, allowing 3 hits and 4 walks and striking out 3. Joel Carreno struck out 3 in 2 scoreless innings, as he continues to the 51s best reliever. Erik Goeddel and Jeff Walters each threw a scoreless inning. Wilmer Flores was 2 for 5 with a double, 2 RBI’s, and 3 strikeouts while playing first base. Eric Campbell also had 2 hits. Juan Lagares didn’t start, but he did have a pinch-hit double. He’s expected to start tonight and then be activated from the DL.
Akron 4, Binghamton 3
Hansel Robles was solid if unspectacular, allowing 3 runs on 8 hits over 5.2 innings, walking 1 and striking out 2. Jack Leathersich took the loss after allowing 1 run in an inning of work, despite striking out 2. Wilfredo Tovar hit a 2-run homer. Matt Clark and Xorge Carrillo had 2 hits each.
Charlotte 11, St. Lucie 2
Gabriel Ynoa got knocked around to the tune of 7 runs on 9 hits over 4.2 innings. He walked 3 and struck out 3. Seth Lugo struck out 5 in 3.1 innings, but he also gave up another 3 runs. Dilson Herrera was 2 for 5. Aderlin Rodriguez hit a solo homer, his 4th of the season. Brandon Nimmo was 0 for 4 with a walk.
Savannah 4, Delmarva 0
Kevin McGowan pitched a gem, striking out 7 in 6.2 innings, allowing just 3 hits and 2 walks. Robert Coles pitched 2.1 scoreless innings to close out the game; Coles has thrown 10.2 shutout innings to begin the season, striking out 14 and walking 3. Gavin Cecchini was 1 for 3 with a walk and strikeout. Jared King tripled and drove in a run. Dominic Smith was 0 for 3 with a strikeout, dropping his average to an even .200.
