Last Night on the Farm - 7/29/12
Last night on the farm the Bisons and B-Mets pitched well and won while Brandon Nimmo and the Cyclones hit well and also won. Let’s check out the deets: Buffalo 3, Indianapolis 2 Chris Schwinden was surprisingly effective, giving up 1 run on just 3 hits over 7 innings. Robert Carson got the final 4 outs, striking out 2 and allowing 1 hit as he earned his first AAA save. Lucas May was 2 for 4 with a double and all 3 RBI’s. Matt Den Dekker was 1 for 3 with a double and 2 runs scored. Lucas Duda had the day off. Binghamton 6, Portland 2 Mark Cohoon got his 6th win of the year letting up just 2 runs over 5.2 innings, as he finished off a very good July. Frank Francisco gave up a bunt single, but pitched a scoreless 7th inning. Dustin Martin and Juan Centeno each had 2 RBI’s. Sean Kazmar homered. Juan Lagares, Wilmer Flores, and Jefry Marte each had a single. Lakeland 6, St. Lucie 4 Logan Verrett made his St. Lucie debut and pitched 6.1 innings, allowing 2 runs on 8 hits with no walks and 4 strikeouts. Both Hamilton Bennett and Jeffrey Walters gave up 2 runs out of the bullpen, costing St. Lucie the game. The Lucies scored 4 runs on just 2 hits: a single by T.J. Rivera and a double by Alonzo Harris. Harris also stole his 27th base of the season, which is good for 4th in the FSL. Rome 6, Savannah 2 Marcos Camaerna filled in for the recently promoted Logan Verrett and let in 5 runs on 10 hits, including 2 homeruns. The sputtering Gnats offense managed just 4 hits, with Charley Thurber drove in both runs. Brooklyn 10, Mahoning Valley 5 Brandon Nimmo had a huge game going 4 for 6 with a double, homer, and 2 RBI’s. Phillip Evans and Julio Concepcion also homered and had 3 hits each. Evans ended up with 4 RBI’s although his season line is just .232/.315/.341. Julian Hilario started but only lasted 3 innings. Beck Wheeler pitched the next 3 innings, striking out 6 and getting the win. Johnson City 6, Kingsport 2 Chris Flexen was decent, giving up 3 runs over 6 innings, but he took the loss. The K-Mets offense had 4 hits and 10 strikeouts. Gavin Cecchini and Brad Marquez each had a single.
