Last night on the farm, Brooklyn played a double header, Savannah finished off the first half of the season, and Vegas continued to bring out the best in Travis d’Arnaud.  Let’s take a look:

 

Oklahoma City 13, Las Vegas 9

 

Giancarlo Alvarado let up 8 runs in 4 innings, and Erik Goeddel followed with 4 runs in 2.2 innings.  Travis d’Arnaud continues to tear it up, going 2 for 5 with a double and a 3-run homer.  Kirk Nieuwenhuis was 2 for 4 with a double and homer.  Omar Quintanilla, Brandon Allen, and Danny Muno all doubled as well.

 

Erie 5, Binghamton 3

 

Angel Cuan took the loss after giving up 4 runs (3 earned) over 6 innings.  Eric Young played 7 innings in left field, going 0 for 3 with a walk and run scored.  Brian Burgamy was 3 for 4 with a double.  Dustin Lawley was 2 for 3 with a homer.  Kevin Plawecki and Jayce Boyd both doubled.

 

Augusta 4, Savannah 2

 

Chris Flexen had another nice outing; he only lasted 4 innings, but gave up just 1 unearned run on 3 hits and 3 walks, striking out 3.  Ricky Knapp allowed 3 unearned runs in 4 innings of work and took the loss.  Gavin Cecchini was 1 for 4 with an RBI double, but that was 1 of 3 hits for the Gnats.  Dominic Smith was 0 for 3 with 2 strikeouts while celebrating his 19th birthday.  That concludes the first half of the season for Savannah, who finishes with a record of 44-22, champions of the South Division.  The Gnats will have 7 players going to the SAL all-star game Tuesday night in Hickory, NC before mid-year promotions start to happen, with a majority of the pitching staff deserving a promotion after putting up a team ERA of 2.65.

 

Staten Island 2, Brooklyn 1 (Game 1, 9 innings)

 

Casey Meisner started and allowed 1 unearned run on 2 hits over 4.1 innings; he walked 3 and struck out 1.  Mike Hepple threw 3.2 shutout innings, but Edioglis Villasmil walked 4 and gave up the game-winning run on a walk-off walk in the bottom of the 9th.  Amed Rosario was 2 for 5.  Michael Katz doubled and drove in a run, but the Cyclones managed just 5 hits.

 

Brooklyn 3, Staten Island 2 (Game 2, 7 innings)

 

Marcos Molina struck out 7 in 6 innings, allowing 2 runs (1 earned) on 3 hits and 1 walk.  Juan Urbina pitched a scoreless 7th to get the save.  Amed Rosario was 2 for 4 with a triple.  Michael Katz and Michael Bernal both doubled.
