Last Night on the Farm - 7/1/13
There was more rain up and down the east coast, as St. Lucie was rained out, as were the B-Mets nearly completed a full inning, with Danny Muno doubling and Erik Goeddel striking out the side (except for a walk) in the 1st inning. Now onto the games that were actually played: Fresno 14, Las Vegas 6Rafael Montero let up 4 runs on 7 hits over 5 innings, with 2 walks and 4 strikeouts. D.J.

The Gnats managed just 3 hits and 2 walks. Brandon Nimmo was 0 for 4 with 2 strikeouts.

GCL Cardinals 4, GCL Mets 2Michael Fulmer got hit a little bit in his second rehab start, allowing 4 runs on 6 hits over 6 innings, but he also walked none and struck out 7 for a bit of a silver lining.
