St. Lucie was rained out, but the GCL team had its season opener (ironically they play in the same place, yet one team played and one was rained out), so we had six teams in action last night. Let’s check it out:
Las Vegas 5, Nashville 4
The 51s scored 4 runs in the bottom of the 9th to earn a comeback win. Travis d’Arnaud was 3 for 4; he’s hitting .458 in triple-A. Andrew Brown and Josh Satin both doubled. Giancarlo Alvarado allowed 4 runs (2 earned) over 6.1 innings. Zack Thornton, Scott Rice, and Ryan Reid combined for 2.2 innings out of the bullpen.
Binghamton 12, Bowie 4
Hansel Robles got the win, allowing 3 runs on 5 hits over 5 innings, walking 3 and striking out 3. Dilson Herrera was 3 for 5 with 2 RBI’s. Brian Burgamy, Dustin Lawley, and Xorge Carrillo all had 2 hits. Lawley and Carrillo both homered, with Carrillo driving in 4 runs. Brandon Nimmo was 1 for 4 with a walk and 2 runs scored.
Greenville 21, Savannah 1
John Gant lasted 4 plus innings and allowed 11 runs on 8 hits, but only 1 run was earned because of 4 errors, all by third baseman Jonathan Leroux. Tyler Vanderheiden and John Mincone both allowed 5 runs in relief. Leroux and Colton Plaia both doubled, but the Gnats had just 3 total hits.
