Last Night On The Farm 6/27
The rain continued to plague things, with both the B-Mets and GCL Mets getting rained out, but the rest of the farm system was in action, and here’s what happened: Tacoma 2, Las Vegas 0Chris Schwinden was surprisingly decent, but took the loss after giving up 2 runs in 7 innings. Brian Bixler and Wilmer Flores doubled, to account for 2 of the 51s 3 hits. Ike Davis was 0 for 4 with 1 strikeout. Palm Beach 10, St. Lucie 6Angel Cuan got knocked around for 9 runs (6 earned) in 5.1 innings. Bret Mitchell struck out 3 in 2 scoreless & hitless innings. T.J. Rivera and Dustin Lawley had 3 hits each. Jayce Boyd was 2 for 5 with a double and 3-run homer. The homer is his 2nd since his promotion, and now it’ll be interesting to see if he can increase his power now that he’s no longer playing in historic Grayson Stadium. Kevin Plawecki left the game in the 6th inning. Adam Rubin later tweeted: “He shifted over behind plate on breaking pitch and looked in pain”. Savannah 10, Rome 3Logan Taylor started, but came out after 1.2 scoreless innings. Julian Hilario followed with 3.1 scoreless innings. Cole Frenzel and Nelfi Zapata had 3 hits each. Phillip Evans doubled twice, bringing his average over .200, and drove in 3 runs. Frenzel, Zapata, and Albert Cordero drove in 3 runs each. Stefan Sabol and Chad Zurcher had 2 hits each. Brandon Nimmo was 1 for 3 with 2 walks, 2 strikeouts, and 2 runs scored, so that’s progress. Eudy Pina walked away with a golden sombrero. Aberdeen 7, Brooklyn 5Carlos Valdez let up 4 runs in 4.1 innings, and David Wynn took the loss after giving up 2 more before getting out of the 5th inning. Akeel Morris struck out 4 and allowed 1 hit in 2 scoreless innings. Morris has picked up where he left off last year, pitching lights out as a reliever. Gavin Cecchini was 2 for 5 with a double and RBI. Jorge Rivero and Matt Overste had 2 hits each. Juan Carlos Gamboa doubled and drove in 2 runs. Greeneville 8, Kingsport 0Yoan Gonzalez let up 1 run and struck out 4, but he took the loss after lasting just 3 innings. Corey Oswalt struck out 3 and gave up 1 run in 4 innings of work. Singles by Yeixon Ruiz and Joe Tuschak were the only hits of the game for the K-Mets, who struck out 14 times. For a team that has a nice collection of talent, the K-Mets are quite bad. DSL Mets1 2, DSL Cardinals 118-year old lefty Adrian Almeida worked around 5 walks and let up just 1 run in 5 innings to continue his solid campaign. John Mora kept it going with 2 hits. DSL Mets2 6, DSL Rockies 116-year old lefty Jose Medina threw 5 shutout innings; after 5 starts his ERA is 0.41. Jose Figuera and Gregory Valencia had 2 hits each.
