Day 3 on the farm was a rough one; let’s take a look:

 

Fresno 8, Las Vegas 6

 

Jacob deGrom was nothing short of fantastic allowing 1 unearned run on 3 hits and 1 walk over 6 innings, striking out 8.  However, Josh Edgin gave up 5 runs in the 9th, recording just 2 outs and Erik Goeddel gave up the final 2 runs to take the loss.  Cesar Puello and Taylor Teagarden both had 3 hits.  Danny Muno, Eric Campbell, and Kirk Nieuwenhuis had 2 hits each.  Campbell and Matt den Dekker both doubled.  Zach Lutz was 1 for 3 with 2 RBI’s.

 

Binghamton 6, Akron 3 (Game 1, 7 innings)

 

Rainy Lara was solid if unspectacular in his AA debut, allowing 3 runs on 8 hits over 5.1 innings with 1 walk and 3 strikeouts.  Adam Kolarek and Chasen Bradford combined for the final 5 outs to secure the win.  Kyle Johnson was 2 for 4 with a double and 2 runs scored.  Brian Burgamy, Matt Clark, and Jayce Boyd also doubled.  Boyd and Dustin Lawley each drove in 2 runs.

 

Akron 3, Binghamton 0 (Game 2, 7 innings)

 

Tyler Pill let up 3 runs on 6 hits and 3 walks over 4 innings, failing to strike anyone out.  John Church struck out 3 in 2 scoreless innings.  The B-Mets managed just 4 hits, including a double by Matt Reynolds, but that was it.

 

Palm Beach 8, St. Lucie 3

 

Michael Fulmer had a rough season debut, allowing 7 runs on 11 hits in 3.2 innings; the silver lining was no walks and 4 strikeouts.  Seth Lugo followed and gave up just 1 run in 4.1 innings.  Gilbert Gomez was 2 for 3 with a double and homer.  Brandon Nimmo was 1 for 3 with a walk and RBI.

 

Lakewood 6, Savannah 2

 

Chris Flexen didn’t have a great SAL debut, giving up 5 runs over 4.2 innings with 3 walks and 3 strikeouts.  Matt Oberste and Jeff McNeil both doubled.  L.J. Mazzilli had 2 hits.  Dominic Smith and Gavin Cecchini were both 0 for 4 with 2 strikeouts.
