It’s been a few rough days in Mets land, but there was an organizational sweep on Tuesday, which could be a sign that things are back on the up and up:

 

Las Vegas 9, Colorado Springs 3

 

Giancarlo Alvarado pitched 6 innings, giving up 2 runs on 2 hits, striking out 5.  Omar Quintanilla was 3 for 5 with 5 RBI’s and was a single shy of the cycle.  Zach Lutz, Josh Satin, and Travis d’Arnaud all had 2 hits.  Satin, Allan Dykstra, and Cesar Puello all doubled.  Adam Rubin is reporting that Lutz is on his way to play in Japan.

 

Binghamton 8, Akron 1 (Game 1, 7 innings)

 

Angel Cuan went the distance, allowing just 1 run on 5 hits over 7 innings.  Darrell Ceciliani homered twice.  Kyle Johnson also homered.  Kevin Plawecki, Matt Clark, and Jayce Boyd had 2 hits each.  Dustin Lawley doubled and drove in 3 runs.

 

Binghamton 10, Akron 5 (Game 2, 7 innings)

 

Hamilton Bennett made the spot start, and gave up 3 runs in 3 innings.  T.J. Chism got the win after 2 shutout innings.  Kevin Plawecki was 2 for 4 with 2 RBI’s.  Dustin Lawley was 2 for 4 with a homer.  Travis Taijeron was 2 for 4 with a double and 2 RBI’s.  Xorge Carrillo was 2 for 3 with a homer and 3 RBI’s.  Darrell Ceciliani tripled.

 

St. Lucie 6, Jupiter 3

 

Luis Cessa got the win after giving up 3 runs on 7 hits over 5 innings, walking 3 and striking out 3.  Jake Kuebler and Randy Fontanez both threw 2 shutout innings.  T.J. Rivera and Cam Maron both had 3 hits.  Gilbert Gomez, Jairo Perez, and Maikis de la Cruz had 2 hits.  Brandon Nimmo was out again; no Dilson Herrera for the second straight game; and Phillip Evans has been added to the DL, so St. Lucie is without several key guys heading down the stretch of the first half.

 

Savannah 3, Kannapolis 2

 

Ricky Knapp allowed 1 run on 5 hits over 7 innings of work, walking 3 and striking out 4.  Robert Coles allowed a run on 3 hits, but notched his 11th save of the season.  Gavin Cecchini was 2 for 4.  Amed Rosario was 1 for 4 with a triple and RBI.  Savannah’s magic number is down to 2; they can win the SAL Southern Division Championship and clinch a postseason birth with a win Wednesday, if Ashville loses at least one of its games in a double-header.
