There was a profound lack of offense on the farm last night. Let’s reluctantly take a look:
Sacramento 7, Las Vegas 5 (11 innings)
Noah Syndergaard had an uneven start, giving up 5 runs on 5 hits over 4 innings, walking 3 and striking out 4. Zack Thornton struck out 3 in 3 hitless innings, while Erik Goeddel and Ryan Reid combined for 3 shutout innings, but Buddy Carlyle gave up a 2-run homer in the 11th. Kevin Plawecki was 1 for 4 with a solo homer in his AAA debut. Matt den Dekker, Matt Reynolds, and Cory Vaughn all had 2 hits each.
Altoona 3, Binghamton 1
Hansel Robles lasted just 4.2 innings, giving up 3 runs on 5 hits with 3 walks and 5 strikeouts. Jack Leathersich struck out 2 in a perfect inning in relief. Brandon Nimmo was 1 for 3 with a double, which was 1 of just 3 total hits for the B-Mets.
Charleston 9, Savannah 0
John Gant took the loss after allowing 6 runs on 7 hits over 5 innings, walking 4 and striking out 2. The Gnats had just 2 hits.
Brooklyn 6, Aberdeen 2
Casey Meisner had a nice outing, allowing 2 runs, both on solo homers, over 6 innings, striking out 7 and walking 1. Tucker Tharp, Michael Katz, and Jeff Diehl had 2 hits each. Jhoan Urena doubled and drove in a run. Amed Rosario was 1 for 5 with an RBI.
Kingsport 5, Princeton 4 (17 innings)
Gaby Almonte was strong, giving up 3 runs over 7 innings, striking out 5. The bullpen then threw 9 shutout innings before giving up a run in the bottom of the 17th. Luis Guillorme was 3 for 8 with a double and RBI. Oswald Caraballo, Eudo Garcia, and Brandon Brosher all had 2 hits. Garcia and Zach Mathieu homered.
GCL Cardinals 3, GCL Mets 0
Audry German started and threw 4 shutout innings, but Jose Medina gave up 3 runs in 2 innings of work to take the loss. John Mora was 2 for 3 with a walk, but the Mets had just 6 hits, all singles.
