Last night on the farm, I was in Richmond to see the B-Mets, while Gavin Cecchini stayed hot and the Sand Gnats swept a double-header.
Binghamton 5, Richmond 1
Greg Peavey tossed 6.2 shutout innings, allowing 3 hits and 3 walks. Chase Huchingson relieved him in the 7th, hit a batter to load the bases, struck out a batter to end the inning, and was then ejected for arguing with the umpire. Brian Burgamy and Dustin Lawley both homered, while pitcher Tyler Pill hit a pinch-hit double late in the game. Dilson Herrera was 1 for 4, but appeared to injure his hand while sliding into second on a failed stolen base attempt. It didn’t appear too serious, but he was in obvious discomfort while walking off the field. Brandon Nimmo didn’t play and his being listed as day to day.
St. Lucie 6, Fort Myers 5
Jeremy Hefner pitched one inning in a rehab performance, giving up 3 runs on 3 hits, walking 2. Seth Lugo gave up 2 more runs in 5 innings of work, while Julian Hilario and Beck Wheeler combined for 3 shutout innings. Gavin Cecchini was 3 for 3 with a walk; he has 11 hits in his last 8 games. Maikis De La Cruz, L.J. Mazzilli, and Gilbert Gomez all had 2 hits.
Savannah 2, Charleston 0 (Game 1, 7 innings)
Robart Whalen threw 5.1 shutout innings, striking out 3 while allowing 4 hits and 3 walks. Akeel Morris got the final 5 outs, striking out 4. Doubles by Yeixon Ruiz and Dominic Smith were the only hits of the game for Savannah.
Savannah 5, Charleston 3 (Game 2, 7 innings)
Stefan Sabol homered twice, driving in 4 runs, including a walk-off homer in the 7th. Octavio Acosta struck out 7 and allowed 2 runs (1 earned) over 5 innings in his Savannah debut.
Mahoning Valley 2, Brooklyn 1 (12 innings)
Scarlyn Reyes threw 6 shutout innings, allowing 2 hits and 1 walk, striking out 4. Luis Rengel ultimately gave up the walk-off run in the 12th. Michael Conforto was 0 for 5. Amed Rosario was 1 for 5. John Mora doubled and tripled. Tyler Moore was 3 for 4 with 2 doubles.
GCL Marlins 8, GCL Mets 1
Jose Celas struck out 6 over 4.2 innings, giving up 2 runs on 6 hits. The Mets had just 2 hits.
