Last night on the farm, there were two rather unusual walk-off wins. Let’s take a look:
Las Vegas 8, Round Rock 3
Noah Syndergaard had a good outing, allowing 1 run on 7 hits and 1 walk over 6.2 innings while striking out 9. Kevin Plawecki went 4 for 4 with 2 homers and 3 RBI’s. Matt Reynolds, Josh Satin, Andrew Brown, Taylor Teagarden, and Anthony Seratelli all had doubles.
New Britain 11, Binghamton 7 (11 innings)
Tyler Pill struck out 7 while allowing 2 runs over 5 innings. But the bullpen did not fair well, including Adam Kolarek, who allowed 5 runs in the 11th and took the loss. Brandon Nimmo was 3 for 6 with 2 doubles. Jayce Boyd and Travis Taijeron were both 3 for 5 with 2 RBI’s. Wilfredo Tovar was 3 for 6. Dilson Herrera was 1 for 6.
St. Lucie 4, Charlotte 3
Domingo Tapia only lasted 3 innings, but they were 3 shutout innings. The bullpen faired well for St. Lucie, who won on a walk-off error in the 9th. Gavin Cecchini was 3 for 5 with a double and RBI.
Augusta 5, Savannah 4
Octavio Acosta let up 5 runs over 6 innings and took the loss. Yeixon Ruiz was 3 for 5. Dominic Smith was 0 for 4 with 2 strikeouts. Champ Stuart was 1 for 4.
Brooklyn 3, Staten Island 2 (11 innings)
Amed Rosario was hit by the pitch with the bases loaded to give the Cyclones the walk-off win. Rosario ended the game 0 for 5. Michael Conforto was 4 for 5 with 2 doubles. Tucker Tharp was 3 for 5 and scored the game-winning run. Pedro Perez and Alfredo Reyes had 2 hits each. Scarlyn Reyes struck out 7 in 7 innings, allowing just 2 runs on 3 hits. Brad Wieck got the win after striking out 2 in a scoreless inning. Brooklyn’s wild card lead holds at 2 games, while their magic number falls to 4.
Elizabethton 9, Kingsport 8 (10 innings)
Andrew Church lasted 3 innings, giving up 4 runs on 7 hits and striking out 2. Ty Williams gave up a walk-off win in the 10th.
