Last night on the farm Binghamton and St. Lucie got rained out, as did game one of Kingsport’s first round playoff series.  Ironically, Savannah was able to complete a double-header.  Let’s check out the games that were actually played:

 

Las Vegas 8, Tucson 6

With this win and Sacramento’s loss, Las Vegas officially clinched the PCL Pacific Southern Division and becomes the 4th Mets affiliate to clinch a playoff birth this season.  Chris Schwinden got pulled after 4 runs on 9 hits over 4.2 innings, but the bullpen allowed just 2 runs in the final 4.1 innings to close out the game.  Eric Campbell was 3 for 4 with a double.  Zach Lutz had 2 hits, including a triple.  Mike Baxter and Jamie Hoffman both had 2 hits, including a double.  Ruben Tejada and Francisco Pena both homered.

 

Savannah 4, Greenville 2 (Game 1, 7 innings)

Luis Cessa threw all 7 innings, allowing 2 runs on 5 hits with no walks and 7 strikeouts.  Stefan Sabol was 2 for 3 with a double, triple, and 3 RBI’s.  Maikis De La Cruz doubled.  Brandon Nimmo hit leadoff and was 1 for 3.

 

Savannah 6, Greenville 4 (Game 2, 7 innings)

Jake Kuebler allowed 2 runs over 5 innings with 4 strikeouts.  Beck Wheeler struck out 2 and recorded his 19th save.  Brandon Nimmo was 1 for 2 with a walk and 2 runs scored.  Eudy Pina and Jeff Reynolds had 2 hits each.  Stefan Sabol doubled and drove in 2 runs.  Dilson Herrera was 1 for 3 with 2 RBI’s.  It’s nice to see Savannah playing well and pitching well leading up to the playoffs; the addition of Herrera certainly helps their chances in the postseason.

 

Aberdeen 7, Brooklyn 0

The Cyclones came out flat in big game.  Akeel Morris took his first loss of the season, allowing 1 run on 3 hits over 5 innings, striking out 7.  Kevin McGowan allowed 4 runs in 3 innings to put the game out of reach.  Jared King and James Roche had 2 hits each.  Aberdeen now leads Brooklyn by a half game in the standings; the two teams play again tonight on Coney Island, in a must-win game for both teams.
