Last night on the farm, runs were hard to come by down in A-ball with some dominating pitching outings by Mets starters; meanwhile, Vegas kicked off an east coast road trip in Omaha (east cost by PCL standards anyway). Let’s get to it: Omaha 5, Las Vegas 4D.J. Mitchell took the loss after giving up 4 runs on 10 hits in 5 innings. Gonzalez Germen threw 2 scoreless and hitless innings, striking out 2, and Josh Edgin gave up a run in his 1 inning of work, which ended up being the difference in the game. Kirk Nieuwenhuis returned to the lineup, going 1 for 6 with 2 strikeouts. Josh Satin, Andrew Brown, and Zach Lutz all had 2 hits each. Eric Campbell was 3 for 3 with 2 RBI’s. Wilmer Flores was 1 for 5 with 2 RBI’s. Brevard County 3, St. Lucie 2Noah Syndergaard was on top of his game, giving up 2 runs on 7 hits over 6.2 innings, doing so with no walks and 10 strikeouts. Unfortunately, the bullpen let the game get away in the bottom of the 9th. Rylan Sandoval had 2 hits, including a double and 2 RBI’s. T.J. Rivera and Gilbert Gomez each doubled. Savannah 6, Augusta 0 (11 innings)This game was scoreless until the Gnats put up a 6-spot in the top of the 11th to break a 4 game skid and pull within a half game of first place in the SAL Southern Division. Rainy Lara threw 8 scoreless innings, allowing 2 hits and 1 walk while striking out 9. In his last 4 starts, Lara has gone 7 innings or longer and given up a total of 3 runs (1 earned). WOW! Also, 32 strikeouts and 2 walks over those 4 games. WOW AGAIN! Bret Mitchell struck out 3 in 2 scoreless innings to get the win and Beck Wheeler threw a scoreless frame in the 11th in a non-save situation. Jayce Boyd was 2 for 4 with a walk. Kevin Plawecki was 0 for 3 wit 2 walks. Eudy Pina tripled for the only extra-base hit of the game. Maikis De La Cruz had a pinch-hit single, driving in 2 runs. Of the 6 runs scored, only 2 were earned.
