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.
