More rain cancelled Savannah’s double-header, stopped St. Lucie 3 innings into their double-header, and limited Kingsport to just 1 game of their double-header. Needless to say, we were light on games Sunday: Binghamton 4, Portland 0Erik Goeddel threw 6 scoreless innings, allowing 4 hits and 3 walks while striking out 3. Ryan Fraser, Pedro Feliciano, and Adam Kolarek all threw a scoreless inning in relief. Josh Rodriguez had 3 hits and Wilfredo Tovar had 2 hits, as the B-Mets won without any extra-base hits. Connecticut 6, Brooklyn 4John Gant continues to strike out batters at a high rate, setting down 9 in 5.2 innings while giving up 3 runs on 6 hits and 2 walks. Paul Paez took the loss after giving up 2 runs in 2.1 innings. L.J. Mazzilli was 3 for 4 with a double. James Roche doubled twice. Alex Sanchez doubled and drove in a run. Matt Oberste had 2 RBI’s. Kingsport 6, Burlington 4Persio Reyes was good for a change, allowing 2 runs in 6.1 innings. Robert Coles struck out 2 in a scoreless inning to earn his 3rd save. Victor Cruzado had 3 hits. Yeixon Ruiz had 2 hits and 2 RBI’s. Joe Tuschak homered. Brandon Nimmo went 0 for 2 in the futures game, but the pitchers stood out. Noah Syndergaard retired the first 2 batters with ease and then allowed a single, only to have that runner thrown out trying to steal to end the inning. Syndergaard showed off how powerful his fastball can be, and while he didn’t really throw his breaking ball for strikes, he threw it in the dirt, which can be a nasty out pitch if he can purposely do that when ahead in the count. Rafael Montero threw an easy 1-2-3 inning. I’m not sure if the radar gun was hot, but it was nice to see him hit 94 regularly. I don’t want to make too much of one inning, but it does make me think that the PCL is inflating his stats just a bit; that and the less than stellar defense behind him, since he usually pitches to contact.
