Last Night on the Farm - 4/8/13
St. Lucie had the night off, but the Mets affiliates got two wins, while the third team blew a lead. Let’s take a look: Las Vegas 4, Fresno 3Josh Satin doubled and Jamie Hoffman singled him home in the top of the 9th to give the 51s the lead, and Jeurys Familia pitched a scoreless bottom of the 9th to get the save. Darin Gorski started and let up 3 runs (2 earned) in 5 innings, although he walked 4 and struck out 3. Greg Peavey pitched 2 scoreless innings and Justin Hampson pitched 1 to get to Familia. Satin had 3 hits; Juan Lagares was 2 for 5; and Travis d’Arnaud was 1 for 3 with a double. Starting for Fresno was Boof Bonser, who made one start for the AAA Mets in 2011. Ramon Ramirez, of the 2012 Mets, gave up the winning run and took the loss. Reese Havens played a few innings of third base. Binghamton 7, Erie 2One of my favorite prospects Erik Goeddel had a solid first outing of the season, pitching 6 innings and allowing 2 runs on 8 hits and no walks with 5 strikeouts. Jack Leathersich struck out 2 in 2 scoreless frames and Jeffrey Walters, who saw some Grapefruit League action with the big league club this spring, allowed 3 base runners but pitched a scoreless 9th inning. Alonzo Harris was 3 for 5 and was a triple shy of the cycle; he’s hitting .364/.391/.636 from the leadoff spot early on. Darrell Ceciliani had 2 hits for the 3rd consecutive game. Augusta 6, Savannah 5Logan Taylor started and threw 5 shutout innings, with 4 hits, no walks, and 5 strikeouts. But then Louisville alum Matthew Koch gave up 6 runs in the 7th inning, giving the game away. Chad Zurcher and Brandon Nimmo were both 2 for 4. Zurcher and Jayce Boyd both drove in 2 runs. Phillip Evans and Kevin Plawecki were both hitless, although Plawecki is still hitting .389.
