It’s last night on the farm playoff edition! (except for Brooklyn, who finished its regular season on a winning note).  Let’s get to it:

 

Salt Lake 4, Las Vegas 2

Matt Fox got the game 1 start and gave up 2 runs over 5.2 innings and left with a chance to get the win.  Vegas carried a 3-2 lead into the 8th inning but Seann Henn allowed a base runner and Robert Carson allowed him to score the tying run.  Carson came back out for the 9th inning and allowed a walk-off homer, giving Salt Lake the game 1 win.  Mike Baxter was 2 for 4 with a triple.  Juan Centeno and Brandon Hicks both doubled.  Dustin Lawley drove in 2 runs.  Rafael Montero gets the start in game 2 tonight.

 

Trenton 6, Binghamton 5 (10 innings)

Noah Syndergaard gave up a couple first inning runs, but settled in after that, allowing 3 runs on 7 hits over 6 innings, striking out 8.  Frank Francisco threw a scoreless inning and Chasen Bradford threw 2 shutout frames, sending the game into extra innings.  The B-Mets scored 2 runs in the 10th off a sac fly by Wilfredo Tovar and single by Josh Rodriguez.  Jeff Walters recorded the first 2 outs of the 10th inning, but Trenton rallied and scored 3 runs to win the game.  Danny Muno was 3 for 4 with 2 doubles.  Darrell Ceciliani also had 3 hits.  Josh Rodriguez and Wilfredo Tovar had 2 hits each.  The B-Mets wasted a good start by Syndergaard, and will look to even up the series tonight with Darin Gorski getting the start.

 

Savannah 10, Augusta 2

The Gnats scored 1 run in the 3rd inning and then put up a 6-spot in the 5th inning, which was more than enough for Gabriel Ynoa, who cruised.  The 15-game winner threw 7.2 innings, allowing 2 runs on 7 hits with 4 strikeouts.  Paul Sewald allowed 2 hits but struck out 4 in the final 1.1 innings.  Stefan Sabol was 3 for 5 with a double and 4 RBI’s.  Maikis De La Cruz was 3 for 5 with a double and 2 RBI’s.  Eudy Pina, Brandon Nimmo, Jeff Reynolds, and Albert Cordero all had 2 hits each.  Philllip Evans hit a solo homer.  Today is an off day in the series, as the teams make the long 2.5 hour drive from Augusta back to Savannah, where game 2 (and possibly 3) will be played.  Steven Matz will start Friday for the Gnats, and if there’s a game 3, it’ll be Luis Cessa Saturday night.

 

Brooklyn 4, Tri-City 2

Jeurys Familia started the game and gave up an unearned run in his only inning of work.  Miller Diaz followed for 4 innings, striking out 5 and allowing 1 run.  The Brooklyn bullpen combined for 4 scoreless innings after that.  The Cyclones won the game on just 3 hits, including a solo homer by Juan Carlos Gamboa.  The win gave Brooklyn a 38-37 record, avoiding the first losing season in franchise history.
