Last night on the farm, we saw plenty of quality pitching performances, especially in the upper levels.  Let’s have a look:


New Orleans 4, Las Vegas 0


Matthew Bowman was the losing pitcher, despite allowing just 1 run on 4 hits over 7 innings, walking 1 and striking out 9.  Danny Muno had 3 of the 51s 7 hits, all singles.  The 51s magic number stands at 3.


Binghamton 8, Erie 5


Gabriel Ynoa tossed 7 innings, allowing just 1 run on 5 hits, walking 2 and striking out 4.  Dilson Herrera, Darrell Ceciliani, T.J. Rivera, and Dustin Lawley all had 3 hits.  Lawley was a homer shy of the cycle, driving in 3 runs.  New Britain won, so the B-Mets magic number is at 1; they have today off, but they can clinch a playoff spot if New Britain loses to Richmond


St. Lucie 6, Charlotte 2


Matt Koch was good for a change, allowing 2 runs on 6 hits over 7 innings, striking out 6 without a walk.  Phillip Evans was 3 for 4.  Jeff McNeil and L.J. Mazzilli had 2 hits each; Mazzilli tripled and drove in 2 runs.  Gavin Cecchini was 0 for 3 with 2 walks and 2 strikeouts.


Rome 6, Savannah 3


Octavio Acosta took the loss, allowing 4 runs on 8 hits over 5.2 innings.  Matt Oberste and Victor Cruzado had 2 hits each.  Champ Stuart was 1 for 4 with a triple.  Dominic Smith had the day off.


Staten Island 14, Brooklyn 4


Scarlyn Reyes lasted just 3.1 innings, allowing 6 runs (3 earned), and the bullpen didn’t fair much better.  Michael Conforto, Tyler Moore, and Pedro Perez had 2 hits each.  Adrian Abreu had 3 hits and 2 RBI’s.  Amed Rosario was 0 for 4.  The Cyclones remain 1 game up in the wild card race.


GCL Mets 4, GCL Cardinals 0


Tyler Badamo struck out 4 in 5 shutout innings, and Adonis Uceta followed with 5 strikeouts in 4 scoreless innings.  Jairo Perez was 3 for 3 with a double.  Manuel Hilario and Alvin Maracaro had 2 hits each.
