Mets Minor League Playoff Report: September 12, 2014.


Mets Minor League Player of the Day: Binghamton LHSP Steven Matz.



Binghamton (3-0) pinches Richmond (0-3) 2-1 and sweeps the series.

A pinch hit double by Jayce Boyd scored pinch runner, Gavin Cecchini, for a walk-off win and series sweep over E.L. West Division Champ Richmond .

We witnessed Matz the Magnificent tonight, in rare form: 7.1 IP, R, 2 H, 2 BB, 11 K. Matz took a no hitter into the 8th inning, and left the game with a 1-0 lead and runners on 1st and 2nd with 1 out.
Hansel Robles: (BS, 1) 0.2 IP, 0 R, H, 0 BB, K. After getting the 2nd out, Robles allowed a run scoring single. With the inherited runner scoring, Matz earned a no-decision.
Cody Satterwhite (W, 2-0) shut down the Flying Squirrels in the 9th: 1.0 IP, 0 R, H, 0 BB, K.

Travis Taijeron: 1-4, R. (Taijeron also had an outfield assist, throwing out the runner trying to go from 1st to 3rd on the game tying single in the 8th inning. That put out may have saved the game for the Mets.)
Xorge Carrrillo: 1-4, HR, 2B, 2 RBI, R. (Carrillo batted in the 1st run of the game, scoring Taijeron from 3rd on a sac fly. He later got a single in the 9th and Gavin Cecchini was called in to pinch run.)
Jayce Boyd, pinch hitting for Cody Satterwhite, promptly doubled to center field, bringing home Cecchini with the winning run.)

Huge congrats for our AA boys. Matz has to have the Mets hierarchy wondering whether to trade Niese in the offseason and just plop Matz in the rotation,

Congrats to Carillo on always playing well and showing it with the MVP. And kudos to Boyd for a very clutch hit from a very fine hitter.

Herb, thank you for all your hard work this year staying up late for the Vegas games.

Your post each night was a wonderful addition and let's you and I figure out an easier way to add the Vegas info later on in the day

Herb's updates on the minors were a must-read for me every day on the train (weekends too)...great job.

With Matz so brilliant, how about a starting 5 of Harvey, deGrom, Thor, Wheeler and Matz next April? Throw caution to the wind.

Hey Thomas, I guess the only possible concern for that dream rotation would be the innings limits on Thor and Matz (I think I read that Harvey supposedly gonna have chance to pitch normal 200 innings). So, that would make things interesting if Mets are in playoff contention. .........
However, I guess my humble idea for a solution would be to have Montero, Gee, Torres or whoever in the bullpen next year, and then step into rotation if needed.
