While you were out binging on tacos and tequila to celebrate Cinco de Mayo (don’t tell me that was just me), this happened on the farm:
Las Vegas 7, Tacoma 5 (7 innings, completed after suspended on Sunday)
Vic Black struck out 1 in a perfect inning to finish off Sunday’s game before the 51s played their regularly scheduled game Monday night.
Tacoma 3, Las Vegas 2
Noah Syndergaard struck out 8 in 5.2 innings, giving up 1 run and scattering 7 hits and 3 walks. Protecting a 2-1 lead in the bottom of the 9th, Jeff Walters faced 5 batters and allowed to reach base on 3 hits and 2 walks. Taylor Teagarden hit his 7th homerun of the season, but other than that the 51s managed just 4 singles.
New Hampshire 5, Binghamton 0
Tyler Pill falls to 0-5 on the season, although he was a little better, giving up 3 runs over 5 innings, striking out 3. Matt Reynolds was 2 for 3 with a walk, but the B-Mets managed just 6 total hits.
St. Lucie 5, Charlotte 2
Gabriel Ynoa was better after a rough April, throwing 6 innings and giving up 2 runs on 6 hits, walking 2 and striking out 3. Paul Seward threw a scoreless inning, and Beck Wheeler struck out 4 in 2 shutout innings to pick up the save. Jairo Perez was 2 for 3 with a double and triple. Aderlin Rodriguez was 2 for 4 with an RBI. Brandon Nimmo was 0 for 3 with 2 walks.
Savannah 5, Rome 1
Kevin McGowan continues to quietly put together a nice season, allowing just 1 unearned run over 5.2 innings on 6 hits and 4 walks with 5 strikeouts. Akeel Morris walked 2 and struck out 2 in 1.2 scoreless innings. Robert Coles also threw 1.2 scoreless innings. Neither Morris nor Coles has allowed a run this season in 16.1 and 13.1 innings respectively. Stefan Sabol was 2 for 3 with his 5th homer of the season. Dominic Smith was 2 for 3 with a walk, as he has 6 two-hit games over the last 10 games, with 5 doubles over that span. Gavin Cecchini was back in the lineup after he was removed from Sunday’s game for not running out a groundball; he went 1 for 5 with a double, extending his hitting streak to 8 games.
