Last night on the farm, the B-Mets were off, but the other 3 teams had more than enough pitching to make up for it. Let’s take a look:
Las Vegas 9, Tacoma 4
Joel Carreno made the spot start and let up 3 runs over 5.2 innings, striking out 5. Miguel Socolovich gave up 1 run over 2.1 innings to earn his 6th hold of the year. Zack Thornton pitched a scoreless 9th inning. Allan Dykstra homered and drove in 3 runs. Matt den Dekker was 2 for 5 with a homer. Cesar Puello was 2 for 3 with a double. Omar Quintanilla was 2 for 4 with a double and 3 RBI’s. Josh Satin had 2 hits; he and Quintanilla were the starting middle infielders.
St. Lucie 3, Tampa 2
The Mets also won this matchup with the Yankees after Gabriel Ynoa allowed just 2 unearned runs over 5 innings, giving up 6 hits and no walks, while striking out 6. After an April to forget, Ynoa has had two nice outings in May. Ryan Fraser, Jake Keubler, and Randy Fontanez combined for 4 shutout innings, allowing 1 hit to close out the game, including Fontanez striking out the side in the 9th. Dilson Herrera was 2 for 4 with a double. Eudy Pina was 2 for 3 with a triple and RBI. Aderlin Rodriguez doubled. Brandon Nimmo was 1 for 4.
Charleston 1, Savannah 0 (10 innings)
Kevin McGowan struck out 6 in 6 shutout innings, allowing just 3 hits and 2 walks. Akeel Morris struck out 4 in 2 perfect innings; if you’re keeping track at home, that’s 20.2 shutout innings for Morris this season. John Mincone let up a run in the 10th to lose the game. Jeff McNeil had 3 of the Gnats’ 4 hits.
