The minor league season is in its final week.  Let’s see how the Mets short-season teams faired in their fight for the playoffs last night.


Las Vegas 9, Round Rock 5


Logan Verrett won his 11th game of the season, allowing 2 runs on 4 hits over 5 innings, striking out 5.  Anthony Seratelli was 1 for 2 with 5 RBI’s, including a grand slam.  Matt Reynolds and Allan Dykstra both doubled.


New Britain 5, Binghamton 1 (Game 1, 7 innings)


Gabriel Ynoa pitched all 7 innings, allowing 5 runs on 6 hits, but walking 1 and striking out 7.  Brandon Nimmo and Dilson Herrera were a combined 1 for 8; the B-Mets had 5 total hits.


Binghamton 3, New Britain 2 (Game 2, 7 innings)


Hansel Robles made the spot start and went 3.2 innings, allowing 1 run and striking out 6.  Paul Sewald made his double-A debut and gave up a run in 1.1 innings, but got the win.  Dario Alvarez got the final 4 outs, striking out 3 to get the save.  Brandon Nimmo and Dilson Herrera were both 1 for 3.


St. Lucie 5, Charlotte 2


Matt Koch was good again, allowing 2 runs on 8 hits over 7.2 innings, striking out 8 and walking 2.  Maikis De La Cruz, Cam Maron, and Cole Frenzel had 2 hits each.  Maron was named to the FSL all-star team.  Eudy Pina doubled and drove in 3 runs.  Gavin Cecchini and L.J. Mazzilli were both 0 for 4.


Augusta 5, Savannah 3


Robert Whalen struck out 7 over 6.2 innings, allowing 3 runs on 5 hits.  John Mincone took the loss after allowing 2 runs on 7 hits over 2.1 innings.  Dominic Smith was 1 for 3 with a walk and a triple.  Jonathan Leroux homered.  Champ Stuart was 1 for 5 with 3 strikeouts.


Brooklyn 8, Staten Island 2


Casey Meisner struck out 11 over 6 innings, giving up just 1 run on 4 hits and 1 walk.  Amed Rosario returned to the lineup and went 3 for 5 with 2 RBI’s.  Alfredo Reyes also had 3 hits.  Michael Conforto was 2 for 5.  Jhoan Urena was 2 for 5 with a triple and 2 RBI’s.  Brooklyn’s lead holds at 2 games, as their magic number lowers to 5.


Johnson City 3, Kingsport 2


Yori Nuez allowed 3 runs (1 earned) over 5 innings to take the loss.  Luis Guillorme and Eudo Garcia had 3 hits each.  The K-Mets now fall 2 games behind Johnson City for the final playoff spot with 3 games to play, so they’ll need to win out and hoping Johnson City loses its final 3 games.


GCL Cardinals 2, GCL Mets 1


Tyler Badamo threw 4 shutout innings, but the bullpen gave up a couple of late runs to lose the game.  Miguel Leal was 2 for 2 with a double.  Milton Ramos also doubled and Dash Winningham hit his 5th homer of the season.
