Last Night on the Farm - 5/26/11
A couple of real good pitching performances, but not from anybody who can actually help the Mets this year:The Bisons got rained out; they will play 2 against Gwinnett tonight.New Britain 7, Binghamton 3Yesterday’s win snapped an 8-game losing streak, but the B-Mets quickly got back to their losing ways. Robert Carson wasn’t bad, but he wasn’t that good either pitching 6 innings, giving up 3 runs on 6 hits, but only had 1 strikeout. Carson now has a 1-6 record. Roy Merritt and Eric Niesen let up 4 more runs in the 7th to put the game out of reach. Allan Dykstra had a big day with 3 hits, including a double and a solo homerun, but the rest of the B-Mets could not do much, as 5 guys ended the day with an average of .200 or below, including the #3 and 4 hitters.St. Lucie 5, Dunedin 1Darrin Gorski was flat-out fantastic! He went for 7.2 innings, giving up 1 run on 3 hits, walking 1 and striking out 13. Nick Carr finished the job for Gorski, striking out 2 in 1.1 innings. A slumping Matt Den Dekker started to regain his old form with 2 hits: a double and a triple. Stefan Welch had 3 hits, including a pair of doubles and 2 RBI’s. Pedro Zapata also had 2 hits, including a triple.Savannah 6, Augusta 0Greg Peavey picked up his 4th win of the year after pitching 7 shutout innings, scattering 6 hits and striking out 4. Angel Cuan faced just 7 batters in the final 2 innings, striking out 5 of them. Robbie Shields had 2 more hits, continuing his onslaught of the Sally this month. But he was outdone by Cory Vaughn, who was 4-4 with a double and a solo homerun, his 4th of the year and 3rd in the last 10 days.
