Last night on the farm, Vegas continued its struggles while the other two teams in actions both pitched shutouts.  Let’s have a look:

 

Sacramento 9, Las Vegas 5

 

Greg Peavey got knocked around for 6 runs in 4.1 innings.  Zack Thornton also struggled, giving up 2 runs in 1 inning of work.  Andrew Brown hit a 2-run homer and Kirk Nieuwenhuis hit a 3-run homer to prove all of the offense for the 51s, who have now lost 6 straight.

 

Binghamton 5, New Britain 0

 

Darin Gorski threw a gem, pitching a complete game 2 hitter, walking 1 and striking out 6.  Kevin Plawecki was 2 for 4 with a double.  Darrell Ceciliani and Wilfredo Tovar also doubled.  Dustin Lawley hit a 2-run homer.  Travis d’Arnaud was 0 for 4 as the DH; he’s expected to catch 9 innings today and then the Mets will consider activating him from the DL.

 

Savannah 2, Augusta 0 (ended after 7 plus innings due to rain)

 

Kevin McGowan gets credit for the complete game shutout, allowing just 3 hits and 1 walk over 7 innings, striking out 2.  Jeff McNeil had 2 hits and scored both runs.  L.J. Mazzilli tripled and drove in a run.  Gavin Cecchini was 0 for 4.  Dominic Smith was 1 for 3.
