Last night on the farm, St. Lucie swept a double-header, Brooklyn’s game was cut short by fog, and Brandon Nimmo continued his AA power surge. Let’s check it out:
Binghamton 11, Erie 4
Gabriel Ynoa had a decent start, scattering 9 hits over 5.2 innings, and allowing 2 runs with 5 strikeouts and no walks. Darrell Ceciliani homered twice and drove in 4 runs. Jayce Boyd was 3 for 5 with a double and 2 RBI’s. Kyle Johnson and Travis Taijeorn both had 2 hits. Dilson Herrera was 1 for 4 with a double, walk, and RBI. Brandon Nimmo was 1 for 5 with his 4th homer since his promotion to AA.
St. Lucie 3, Lakeland 2 (Game 1, 7 innings)
Rafael Montero made another rehab appearance, pitching 4 shutout innings, allowing 2 hits and 1 walk, striking out 4. Jeff McNeil, Aderlin Rodriguez, and Phillip Evans all had 2 hits. Evans homered, while McNeil and Cam Maron both doubled.
St. Lucie 6, Lakeland 1 (Game 2, 7 innings)
The good Domingo Tapia showed up and pitched 5.1 shutout innings, giving up 5 hits and 2 walks, striking out 7. Jared King, Maikis De La Cruz, and Eudy Pina all had 2 hits. Gavin Cecchini was 1 for 2 with a walk and 2 runs scored.
Connecticut 2, Brooklyn 0 (Stopped after 5 innings for Fog)
Marcos Molina was the losing pitcher, lasting just 4.2 innings and allowing 2 runs on 5 hits with 2 walks and 5 strikeouts. Jhoan Urena and Michael Katz had 2 hits each.
Kingsport 7, Bristol 7 (suspended by rain in the 7th)
In barely 6 innings of play, these 2 teams combined for 5 errors, which is why the K-Mets scored 7 runs on 4 hits, including a pair of solo homers by Wuilmer Becerra. Blake Taylor started, but lasted just 2.1 innings, allowing 4 runs on 6 hits.
GCL Mets 8, GCL Marlins 3
Eucebio Arias had a modest start, allowing 3 runs (1 earned) on 6 hits over 5.2 innings. Enmanuel Zabala, Darryl Knight, and Milton Ramos all had 2 hits. Ramos doubled and drove in 3 runs, while Knight and Taylor Teagarden also doubled; Teagarden also struck out twice and caught 5 innings.
