A whole lotta hitting goin' on at the Mets' 4 minor league active affiliates. 38 runs in 4 contests, all wins, by a total margin of 22 runs. VERY NICE.
Minor League Player of The Night -
T J RIVERA, who with 4 hits and a walk is now at .500. He is a veritable hit machine, and is forcing his way into consideration. If you don't know T J, check out his career stats. You'll come away impressed. 172 hits and .358 since the beginning of 2014.
Honorable Mention -
The other hitters. Way to many to mention. Read on and see for yourself, folks.
AAA - Las Vegas - (4-4) 7 - Sacramento (5-3) 4
LHSP Darin Gorski - 5 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 1BB, 3 K, 1.80
RHRP Hansel Robles 1.2 IP, 1 H, 4 K, 0.00
3B Danny Muno - 0-2, .211, CALLED UP
SS Matt Reynolds - 2-4, 2R, 3 RUN HR, .226
2B Dilson Herrera - 2-4, R, .269
RF Alex Castellanos - 2-4, 2R, HR, 2 RBI, .346
CF Darrell Ceciliani - 2-4, 2 R, 2B, .294
Gorski improves to 2-0 with a solid outing. Reynolds' 3 run shot turned a 2-1 deficit into a 4-2 lead. Alex Castellanos continued his strong start with a late 2 run shot to cap the 51's scoring. Lots of 2 for 4's, and encouraging to see Reynolds and Herrera now HOT.
President Obama describes the 51s as "the Mets' LV team."
AA - Binghamton (5-3) 9 - Harrisburg (3-5) 3
RHSP Rainy Lara - 5.0-IP, 6-H, 3-R, 2-K, 2-BB, 2.31
1B Josh Rodriguez - 2-5, 1-R, 1-HR (1), .211
2B T.J. Rivera - 4-4, 3-R, double, 3-RBI, .500
3B Dustin Lawley - 2-5, 3-RBI, .318
Blow out, led by hitting wunderkind T J Rivera, and Dustin Lawley is hot and knocking the boys in. Boyd heating up too.
Always a rainy night when Lara pitches, as the Rain Man secures the win in a lopsided victory.
A+ - St. Lucie - (5-3) 14 - Brevard County (3-4) 6
RHSP Kevin McGowan - 3.2-IP, 7-H, 2-ER, 4-K, 3-BB, 1.80
1B Dominic Smith - 3-5, 1-R, 3-RBI, .188
C Colton Plaia - 3-5, 1-R, 2-doubles, 1-RBI, .450
RP Jake Kuebler - 2.1-IP, 0-R, 2-K, 1-BB, 0.00
Destruction rained from St Lucie Mets bats, as they pounded away for 14 runs and 18 hits. Dominic Smith silenced all the worry warts for a night (me included) with a breakout 3-5 night with 3 rib eyes. Champ Stuart on 3 more times with 2 more steals...now on base an astounding 20 times in 8 games, and 7 steals already. Whoosh!
A - Savannah - (3-4) 8 - Charleston (4-4) 3
RHSP Corey Oswalt - 5.0-IP, 7-H, 3-R, 5-K, 2-BB, 4.22
1B Stefan Sabol - 1-3, 1-R, 1-HR (2), 2-RBI, ,313
3B Pedro Perez - 2-4, 1-R, 1-HR (1), 1-RBI, .182
RF Wuilmer Becerra - 2-4, 1-R, 1-HR (2), 2-RBI, .269
Good to see life in Gnats' bats. Someone asked how Becerra is doing yesterday. Are you satisfied with Becerra's answer? He spoke loudly with 2 hits and a 2 run blast.
Ozzie Oswalt tossed a solid outing for the win.
Smashing Mets minors night. Certainly not the last one.
