Last Night on the Farm - 5/10/13
Last night on the farm was pretty ugly, keeping reading if you dare (although you probably should anyway): Round Rock 12, Las Vegas 6Vegas Pitchers gave up 20 total hits, in yet another ugly affair. D.J. Mitchell started and gave up 6 runs in 4.1 innings. Greg Peavey also had an egregious outing, allowing 4 runs in 1 inning of work. Kirk Nieuwenhuis was 3 for 5. Eric Campbell also had 3 hits, including a homer and 3 RBI’s. Wilmer Flores was 1 for 3 with an RBI. Zach Lutz was 2 for 4 with a double and an RBI. Collin Cowgill was 0 for 5 with 3 strikeouts. Binghamton 8, Harrisburg 4 (7 innings)Rain ended this game early and helped the B-Mets get a win and get above .500. Erik Goeddel wasn’t great, giving up 4 runs in 5 innings of work, with 3 walks and 6 strikeouts, but he got the win. Adam Kolarek struck out the side in the 6th, and then Jack Leathersich allowed 2 base runners but struck out 2 before the game was called with 2 outs in the 7th. Darrell Ceciliani was 3 for 3 with a triple and 2 RBI’s. Danny Muno and Allan Dykstra both homered and drove in 2 runs. Palm Beach 7, St. Lucie 3The Lucies suffered a rare loss, as Randy Fontanez gave up 3 runs in the 8th to break a tie. Angel Cuan started and gave up 3 runs in 6 plus innings. Dustin Lawley was 3 for 4 and a double shy of the cycle. The rest of the lineup combined for 1 hit, a single by Gilbert Gomez. Travis Taijeron was FSL player of the week last week, but last night he took home his second golden sombrero in three days. Domingo Tapia was scheduled to start, but was placed on the DL before the game after burning his non-pitching hand. Rome 3, Savannah 2Rainy Lara was good, allowing up 2 runs (1 earned) on 5 hits in 7 innings of work, striking out 8 without any walks; his ERA is 1.42.
