The struggles in Mets land continue, including most of the farm.  Let’s check out the games from Saturday night:

 

Fresno 7, Las Vegas 2

 

Joel Carreno let up 6 runs in 6 innings, including 4 runs in the first inning.  Allan Dykstra was 3 for 3 with a solo homer.  Josh Satin had 2 hits and an RBI.

 

New Britain 6, Binghamton 4

 

Greg Peavey got hit around for 4 runs on 9 hits over 4.2 innings.  Jack Leathersich gave up 2 runs on 4 hits over 2.1 innings, although he walked 1 and struck out 3.  The B-Mets had 8 hits by 8 different players, including a homer by Jayce Boyd.  Travis Taijeron doubled and drove in 2 runs.

 

Dunedin 4, St. Lucie 2

 

Steven Matz took the loss after allowing 4 runs on 8 hits over 6 innings, walking 2 and striking out 5.  Gonzalez Germen walked 2 and struck out 2 while allowing 1 hit in a scoreless inning of relief.  Dilson Herrera, Cam Maron, Cole Frenzel, and Maikis De La Cruz all doubled.  The x-rays were negative on Brandon Nimmo after being HBP near the wrist in Friday night, although he was not in the lineup.  St. Lucie remains 2 games back in the loss column with time running out in the first half of the season.

 

Savannah 4, Charleston 0

 

John Gant threw 7 shutout innings, allowing 3 hits and 1 walk while striking out 5.  L.J. Mazzilli was 3 for 4 with 2 RBI’s.  Patrick Biondi, Jeff McNeil, and Dominic Smith had 2 hits each.  Gavin Cecchini was 1 for 5 with a double.  Amed Rosario was 0 for 3 with a walk.  Savannah is now 21 games over .500, with a magic number of 5 to clinch the first half title and a playoff spot, which is almost inevitable at this point.
