While the Mets were getting rained out, here’s what happened down on the farm:
Sacramento 6, Las Vegas 5
Logan Verrett lasted 6 innings, allowing 4 runs (2 earned) on 5 hits, with no walks or strikeouts. The bullpen let up 2 runs in the 8th, costing the 51s the game. Matt den Dekker was 2 for 5 with a triple. Josh Satin was 2 for 4 with a homer and 2 RBI’s. Andrew Brown doubled. The 51s have lost 3 straight, but they retain a 10-game lead in the division.
Binghamton 3, New Britain 2
The B-Mets snapped their 5-game losing streak with a little help from Tyler Pill, who struck out 5 in 6 innings, allowing 1 run on 6 hits. Jon Velasquez cost Pill the chance to get the win, but a Kevin Plawecki homer gave the B-Mets the lead right back in the 8th and Chase Bradford struck out 2 in the 9th to pick up his 9th save of the season. Plawecki also doubled in the game and drove in 2 runs. He has 2 homers, 3 doubles, and 14 RBI’s over his last 10 games, and his line for the season is up to .318/.348/.465. Aside from a lack of walks, Plawecki is doing all right this season.
St. Lucie 6, Clearwater 2
Matt Koch allowed 2 runs over 6 innings, walking 1 and striking out 1. Koch is striking out many, but he has a 4-0 record and 1.44 ERA in May. Seth Lugo struck out 2 in 3 scoreless innings to pick up the save. Dilson Herrera was 2 for 3 with a walk and 2 runs scored. Brandon Nimmo was 2 for 4 with a double, RBI, and 2 runs scored. Phillip Evans doubled and drove in 2 runs.
Lexington 6, Savannah 5 (13 innings)
Robert Gsellman scattered 10 hits over 5.1 innings, allowing 5 runs and striking out 3. The bullpen threw 6 shutout innings until Robert Coles let up a run in the 13th. L.J. Mazzilli, Victor Cruzado, and Jeff Glenn had 2 hits each. Gavin Cecchini returned to the lineup and went 1 for 4 with a double, walk, and RBI. Dominic Smith was 1 for 6. The Gnats had just 9 hits in 13 innings.
