Last Night on the Farm - 4/7/13
It was a nice Sunday afternoon on the farm. There were two shutouts in A-ball and anything but shutouts in the upper levels. Let’s take a look: Sacramento 8, Las Vegas 4Carlos Torres started and gave up 2 runs in 5.2 innings, but then Dylan Owen came in and the flood gates opened, as he got 2 outs and let up 5 runs, including 2 homeruns. Offensively, Juan Lagares and Josh Satin were both 2 for 4 with a double. Reese Havens, Wilmer Flores, and Brian Bixler all had 1 hit and 1 RBI. Travis d’Arnaud got the day off. Akron 13, Binghamton 3The B-Mets won’t be going undefeated, as Tyler Pill gave up 5 runs in 5 innings. Mark Cohoon gave up 5 more runs, and just for kicks Adrian Rosario allowed 3 more. Darrell Ceciliani was 2 for 5 with a double and 2 RBI’s. Richard Lucas and Wilfredo Tovar also had 2 hits each. Tovar, Blake Forsythe, and Allan Dykstra each doubled as well. St. Lucie 1, Jupiter 0Noah Syndergaard made his Mets debut, pitching 4 shutout innings, allowing just 3 hit and a walk while striking out 5. He’s not quite stretched out, which is why he only threw 4 innings. Angel Cuan got the win after throwing 3.2 scoreless innings. Just 4 hits for the Lucies, including an RBI double by Cam Maron, which scored Aderlin Rodriguez from first. Maron was also involved in a collision at the plate, but he held onto the ball to record the final out of the game. Savannah 4, Rome 0Rainy Lara was dominant, pitching 6 shutout innings and yielding 2 hits and a walk while striking out 6. Bret Mitchell and Hunter Carnevale combined for 3 shutout innings, with 1 hit and 4 strikeouts. Brandon Nimmo, Phillip Evans, and Jayce Boyd hit 1-2-3 in the order, and all of them had 3 hits.
