Minor League Player of The Night - Noah Syndergaard decided to show Matt Harvey how it's really done with a masterful, compler 7 inning shutout, holding the bad guys to 2 hits, walking not a batter, and striking out 9. Plenty of offensive support in the 51'S twin bill from Alex Castellanos, who is hotting like another outfielder of an earlier era: Joe Dimaggio: Alex's 3 for 5 night included his 8th double and 6th homer of the short season, giving him an OPS of 1.272!
Honorable Mention - Robert Gsellman for also tossing 2 hit ball, for St Lucie over 6 innings, followed by 3 innings of hitless relief. A special mention for the 3 guys who are tearing it up and fighting hard to make the bigs, Herrera, Reynolds, and Monell, who went 8 for 16 with 7 RBI. Reynolds now has 21 RBIs.
Vegas stomped Albuquerque, 8-0 and 3-2 in their twin bill.
AAA - Las Vegas - (11-8) vs. Albuquerque (9-10)
Game 1 - RHSP Noah Syndergaard - 7 IP, 2 H, 0 BB, 9 K, 2.45
Game 2 - RHSP Darin Gorski - 5 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2BB, 3 K, 5.68
Nice bounce back start by Gorski, and the 2nd game was secured when Castellanos homered to give the 51s their margin of victory.
AA - Binghamton - suspended due to rain - will complete today
A+ - St. Lucie (10-9) 7 - Jupiter (7-12) 1
1B Dominic Smith - I don't have the details but Smith has been seen in a walking boot and the assumption would be that he is unable to play or on the disabled list.
RHSP Robert Gsellman - 6.0-IP, 2-H, 1-R, 6-K, 1-BB, 2.14
DH Maikis de la Cruz - 2-4, HR, 2 RBIs, .319
Jeff McNeil continued his robust hitting with 2 more hits and a walk, and is up to .318. Akeel Morris threw a perfect 9th and fanned a batter.
A - Savannah - no game scheduled
No goats on a 3-0 night where the Mets farmhands outscored their opponents 18-3.
