Last night on the farm, the Mets got a handful of great pitching performances. Let’s check ‘em out:
Las Vegas 2, Fresno 1
Matt Fox struck out 9 while giving up 1 run over 7 innings. Rob Carson and Greg Burke each threw a scoreless inning. Zach Lutz was 2 for 4 with a double. Ruben Tejada and Brian Bixler also doubled. This was the 51s 7th straight win, giving them a 3-game cushion for the division lead.
Binghamton 10, Akron 2
Darin Gorski struck out 7 in 7.2 innings, allowing 2 runs on 3 hits. Gorski has an ERA in AA just above 2 and could be a big factor for the B-Mets in the postseason. Josh Rodriguez, Cory Vaughn, Allan Dykstra, Xorge Carrillo, Wilfredo Tovar, and Richard Lucas all had 2 hits each. Both Vaughn and Carrillo had 3 RBI’s each.
West Virginia 6, Savannah 3 (Game 1, 9 innings)
Tim Peterson got the spot start and allowed 3 runs on 4 hits over 3 innings, surrendering 2 homers. Jake Kuebler followed for 4.1 scoreless innings, but Beck Wheeler got hit hard for 3 runs in 1 inning of work and took the loss. Brandon Nimmo was 1 for 2 with 2 walks.
Savannah 6, West Virginia 1 (Game 2, 7 innings)
Steven Matz allowed 1 run on 4 hits over 5.1 innings, with 2 walks and 7 strikeouts. Brandon Nimmo was 1 for 3 with a double and 2 RBI’s.

Bluefield 6, Kingsport 1
Persio Reyes struck out 8 in 4.2 innings, but got knocked around for 6 runs. Zach Dotson made another appearance and struck out 2 in a scoreless inning. Pedro Perez and Champ Stuart both doubled, but the K-Mets managed just 4 hits.
