Last Night on the Farm - 5/19/13
Rather odd Sunday afternoon on the farm, as the Lucies struggled on the mound, the Gnats won a shootout, and some rarely heard names were the stars on offense. Let’s have a look: Omaha 4, Las Vegas 3Chris Schwinden gave up 2 runs in 4 innings and then got bounced. Armando Rodriguez ends up wit the loss, giving up 2 runs on 4 hits in 2 innings of work. Wilmer Flores was 1 for 4 with his 4th homer of the season. Zach Lutz was 2 for 4. Andrew Brown left the game with an oblique strain after starting to get work at first base. Josh Satin has played a lot of first base for Vegas this year; Eric Campbell could be a sleeper, as he plays all four corner positions and is hitting .311/.416/.541 this year. Binghamton 8, Portland 5Cory Mazzoni got the win, but allowed 5 runs on 10 hits in 6.1 innings, striking out 4 and walking 1. Jack Leathersich picked up his second save of the season. The offense bailed out Mazzoni, wit Joe Bonfe getting 4 hits and 3 RBI’s. Cesar Puello was 3 for 5 with his 9th stolen base of the year. Danny Muno and Cory Vaughn had 2 hits each. Muno and Darrell Ceciliani doubled. Bradenton 8, St. Lucie 1Hansel Robles had a brief day, giving up 4 runs in 4 innings, on 4 hits and 3 walks with 6 strikeouts. Wanel Mesa gave up 4 more runs. Matt Reynolds was 2 for 3 with a double and a walk. Dustin Lawley also doubled, but the Lucies managed just 5 hits. Savannah 12, Augusta 10This game was quite the aberration with 22 total runs being scored. Luis Cessa gave up 6 runs on 11 hits in 5 innings of work. Tyler Vanderheiden gave up 1 run in 2 innings, but ended up with the win. Beck Wheeler earned his 3rd save of the season with a scoreless 9th inning. Nelfi Zapata was 2 for 3 with a homer and 5 RBI’s in his first appearance of the season. Jeff Reynolds was 4 for 4 with a double and 2 RBI’s. Eudy Pina doubled and drove in 3 runs. Maikis De La Cruz, Cole Frenzel, and Stefan Sabol all had 2 hits. This was all done without Kevin Plawecki and with Jayce Boyd going 1 for 6 with 2 strikeouts.
