Much like the Mets, there was a profound lack of offense on the farm last night.  Let’s have a look at just how bad it was.


Omaha 4, Las Vegas 0


Noah Syndergaard struck out 8 over 5 innings, but took the loss after allowing 2 runs on 3 hits and 3 walks.  Jack Leathersich let up 2 runs in 1 inning of work.  Matt Reynolds was 2 for 4, but the 51s managed just 4 singles the whole game.  Bobby Abreu was 0 for 4 as the DH.  The 51s magic number for a playoff spot is at 5.


Reading 1, Binghamton 0


Steven Matz took the loss, despite giving up just 1 run over 7 innings, striking out 4.  The B-Mets had 3 total hits.  The B-Mets now sit 1.5 games behind first place Portland, but their magic number to clinch a playoff spot is down to 4.


Bradenton 3, St. Lucie 0


Seth Lugo allowed 2 runs on 5 hits over 7 innings, striking out 4, but took the loss.  L.J. Mazzilli was 2 for 3, but those were the team’s only hits.


Savannah 3, Greenville 2


John Gant struck out 9 over 5 innings, giving up 2 runs on 3 hits, and 4 different relievers all threw a scoreless inning to finish the game.  Champ Stuart was 2 for 4 with 2 runs scored.  Dominic Smith and Matt Oberste were both 1 for 4 with a double.  With 5 straight wins, the Gnats are just 2 games back of first place Ashville, although they have already clinched a playoff spot by winning the first half division title. 


Brooklyn 7, Vermont 3


Casey Meisner struck out 10 over 6.2 innings, allowing 3 runs (1 earned) on 6 hits.  Jhoan Urena was 2 for 4 with a double and 2 RBI’s.  Tyler Moore was 2 for 4 with an RBI.  Amed Rosario was 1 for 3 with a walk and 2 runs scored.  Michael Conforto was 1 for 3 with 2 RBI’s.  With 5 straight wins, the Cyclones hold a 1 game lead over Connecticut in the wild card race.


Kingsport 4, Greeneville 3 (12 innings)


Gaby Almonte threw 4 shutout innings, while the bullpen allowed 3 runs over 8 innings to get the win for the K-Mets.  Vicente Lupo, Wuilmer Becerra, and Jose Garcia had 2 hits each.  The K-Mets have now won 6 in a row and have a 1 game lead for the final playoff spot.
