Last Night on the Farm - 5/12/13
A few solid pitching performances and some lackluster offense highlight a Sunday afternoon on the farm. Let’s have a look: Las Vegas 4, Albuquerque 3Collin McHugh threw 7 good innings, giving up 1 run on 6 hits with 2 walks and 5 strikeouts. He now has a 2.74 ERA. Wilmer Flores and Omar Quintanilla both doubled. Juan Centeno drove in 2 runs. Flores played first base, allowing Reese havens to get the start at second base. Harrisburg 3, Binghamton 1 (Game 1, 7 innings)Mark Cohoon took the loss, giving up just 2 runs in 4.2 innings with 3 runs on 5 strikeouts. Just 5 hits for the B-Mets, although 4 were doubles. Josh Rodriguez had 2 doulbes, and Francisco Pena and Richard Lucas each had a double as well. Binghamton 9, Harrisburg 3 (Game 2, 7 innings)The B-Mets jumped on top early, scoring all 9 runs in the first 2 innings. On the mound, Cory Mazzoni was strong for 5.2 innings, allowing 1 run on 4 hits with no walks and 5 strikeouts. Josh Edgin got the final 4 outs of the game, but not before he let up 2 runs. Blake Forsythe, Joe Bonfe, and Mazzoni all had 2 hits. Bonfe, Mazzoni, and Cesar Puello had 2 RBI’s each. Bonfe and Forsythe both doubled. Rome 4, Savannah 1Matt Koch let up 2 runs (1 earned) on 5 hits with no walks and 4 strikeouts in 4 innings, but he took the loss nonetheless. Tim Peterson and Tyler Vanderheiden each threw a scoreless inning. Stefan Sabol hit a solo homer. Maikis De La Cruz and Kevin Plawecki each singled, but the Gnats had no other hits, as their offense has gone stagnant of late with the noticeable absence of Brandon Nimmo.
