It wasn’t pretty, but the Mets farmhands found a way to pick up a few wins on Sunday. Let’s see how it happened:
Las Vegas 5, Fresno 4
Logan Verrett got the win after pitching 5 plus innings, allowing 3 runs on 8 hits. Ryan Reid earned his 2nd save of the season. Cory Vaughn was 3 for 4 with a 2-run homer. Brandon Allen and Kai Groanuer both doubled.
Binghamton 7, New Britain 3
Tyler Pill was solid, giving up 2 runs over 5 innings, walking 4 and striking out 5. T.J. Chsim gave up the lead, but Cody Satterwhite and Chase Bradford both threw a scoreless inning in relief. Kevin Plawecki was 2 for 3 with a double. Travis Taijeron doubled twice.
Palm Beach 4, St. Lucie 3
Michael Fulmer had another so-so outing, allowing 4 runs on 8 hits over 5 innings, walking 1 but striking out just 3. Fulmer now has a 2-6 record on the season. Seth Lugo struck out 4 in 4 shutout innings out of the bullpen, but a 9th inning rally fell short. Aderlin Rodriguez hit a 2-nhomer in that 9th inning, but offense was sparse for St. Lucie otherwise. Brandon Nimmo was once again out of the lineup.
Savannah 11, Charleston 6
Chris Flexen continued to turn things around, pitching 5 innings and giving up 3 runs (2 earned) on 5 hits. Akeel Morris struck out 3 in 1.1 hitless innings to lower his ERS to 0.28. L.J. Mazzilli was 3 for 5 with a double and 2 RBI’s. Dominic Smith was 2 for 4 with a double and 3 RBI’s. Amed Rosario was 1 for 5 with 2 RBI’s. Champ Stuart had 2 hits. Jeff McNeil doubled and drove in 3 runs. Patrick Biondi had 3 hits. Gavin Cecchini was 1 for 3 with a double, RBI, and 2 walks.
