Outside of Las Vegas and Binghamton, there was a profound lack of offense in Mets land last night. Let’s check out the damage:
Las Vegas 9, Reno 4
Tyler Pill made his triple-A debut, giving up 4 runs on 6 hits over 4.2 innings, walking 3 and striking out 4. Gonzalez Germen struck out 5 in 2 scoreless innings to get the win. Brandon Allen was 3 for 5 with 5 RBIs, going a triple shy of the cycle. Matt den Dekker was 3 for 4 with a double and 3 runs scored. Juan Centeno was 2 for 4 with a double. Wilmer Flores drove in 2 runs.
Binghamton 13, Portland 3
Steven Matz looked good, but ran into some trouble in the 6th, and ended up giving up 3 runs on 4 hits over 5.1 innings, walking 1 and striking out 5. Jack Leathersich followed for 1.2 scoreless innings, striking out 3. Cody Satterwhite struck out the side in the 9th. Travis Taijeron was 2 for 4 with a double, homer, and 4 RBI’s. Darrell Ceciliani was 2 for 5 with a triple and 2 RBI’s. Xorge Carrillo was 2 for 4 with a double and 2 RBI’s. Dilson Herrera and Brandon Nimmo were both 1 for 4. The win finished off a 4-game sweep of first-lace Portland, bringing the B-Mets within 4 games of first and giving them a firm hold on a playoff spot.
Bradenton 4, St. Lucie 1
John Lannan made another start, allowing just 1 run over 4.1 innings, but he didn’t strike out anybody and took the loss. L.J. Mazzilli and Maikis De La Cruz had 2 hits each. Gavin Cecchini was 0 for 4, dropping his average to .188.
Savannah 4, Charleston 1 (7 innings, Rain)
Ricky Knapp got the rain-shortened complete game, giving up 1 run over 7 innings. Cole Frenzel had 3 hits and Colton Plaia drove in 2 runs. Champ Stuart walked twice, stole a base, and scored a run. Dominic Smith was 0 for 2 with an RBI.
State College 4, Brooklyn 1
Casey Meisner had another short outing, giving up 3 runs on 6 hits over 4.2 innings, walking 2 and striking out 6. Tyler Moore tripled, and was singled home by Tomas Nido, but those were Brooklyn’s only 2 hits.
Elizabethton 4, Kingsport 2
Yoan Gonzalez took the loss, allowing 3 runs on 6 hits over 4 innings. Pedro Perez stayed hot, hitting a 2-run homer, but the K-Mets managed just 6 hits and struck out 13 times.
GCL Nationals 7, GCL Mets 5 (Game 1, 12 innings)
Jose Medina got the bulk of the work, allowing 4 runs (2 earned) on 5 hits over 4 innings, with no walks and 4 strikeouts. Kevin Canelon gave up 2 runs in the 12th to take the loss. Recent draftees Dash Winningham and Milton Ramos both had 2 hits, including a double and triple.
GCL Nationals 6, GCL Mets 4 (Game 2, 7 innings)
Audry German let up 6 runs on 6 hits over 5.2 innings. Darryl Knight had 2 hits and 2 RBI’s.
