Last Night on the Farm - 5/20/13
Last night on the farm there was a rain out and a whole lot of strikeouts. Let’s explore. Rafael Montero was scheduled to make a spot start for Las Vegas, but the game in Iowa was postponed by rain. They will try to play 2 games today. Montero should pitch one of the games, and as of now the plan is to send him back to Binghamton afterwards. Binghamton 6, New Britain 3Logan Verrett struck out 10 in 6 innings and got his 6th win of the season, despite allowing 3 runs on 9 hits.
