Last Night on the Farm - 4/9/13
Last night on the farm both Zack Wheeler and Rafael Montero took the mound, St. Lucie stayed undefeated, and Savannah’s first baseman continued to be red hot. Let’s have a looksy: Fresno 4, Las Vegas 1Zack Wheeler gave up 4 runs, but only 1 was earned because of errors by himself and Brian Bixler. He lasted 5.1 innings allowing 8 hits and 3 walks, while striking out 6. The bullpen pitched 2.1 scoreless innings. Juan Lagares, Andrew Brown, and Josh Satin all had 2 hits each. Satin homered to provide the only run of the game, and is now hitting .480. Reese Havens started at second base and was 1 for 4, as Wilmer Flores had the day off. Erie 2, Binghamton 1Rafael Montero had another great outing, allowing 1 run on 6 hits over 6 innings, with 7 strikeouts and no walks. Unfortunately, John Church gave up a run in the 7th inning that was the difference in the game. Cesar Puello had 2 hits and Richard Lucas had 3 hits, but the B-Mets couldn’t push more than 1 run across the plate. St. Lucie 4, Palm Beach 0The Lucies remained perfect on the season, as Luis Mateo threw 6.2 scoreless innings, striking out 9 while allowing just 4 hits and 2 walks. Randy Fontanez and T.J. Chism finished the final 2.1 innings without giving up a run. Aderlin Rodriguez and Dustin Lawley had 2 hits each. Charley Thurber drove in 2 runs. Savannah 7, Augusta 2Luis Cessa pitched 6.2 innings, giving up 2 runs (1 earned) on 7 hits, striking out 5. Julian Hilario threw 2 scoreless innings to finish the game. The Gnats batters faced Jose Reyes (a different one I’m assuming) and knocked him out after 3 innings. Jayce Boyd was 3 for 5 with a double and an RBI; he is now hitting .545/.643/.727. Kevin Plawecki and Cole Frenzel had 2 hits each. Plawecki doubled once and drove in 2 runs while Frenzel doubled twice and drove in 1 run. Brandon Nimmo was 0 for 3 with a walk, RBI, and 2 runs scored.
