Slow night, with only 2 of the 4 teams playing baseball. Two wins, though.
Minor League Player of The Night -
Savannah 2B Jean Rodriguez. J ROD #1
Honorable Mention -
Binghamton 3B Josh Rodriguez. J ROD #2
AAA - Las Vegas - no game scheduled
Only way to cool down the Vegas bats is to give them the night off. 6.7 runs per game, boys and girls. Impressive.
AA - Binghamton (12-8) 8 - Portland (7-13) 3
RHSP Rainy Lara - 4.0-IP, 6-H, 3-R, 2-K, 2-BB, 2.91
3B Josh Rodriguez - 2-4, 2-R, HR (3), 4-RBI, .298
1B Aderlin Rodriguez - 1-5, 1-R, HR (3), 2-RBI, .206
2B Jairo Perez - 2-4, 1-R, HR (1), 2-RBI, .333
DH Dustin Lawley - 0-4, 2-K, .246
CF Brandon Nimmo - 2-4, 2B, 3B, BB, .284. Now hitting.
Mack - there's been a fair amount of Mets weenies (minor league fans) that have had big hopes for the power generated by Lawley (2013: 26-HRs, 96/RBI at St. Lucie... 2014: 20-HR, 69-RBI at AA-Binghamton), but it always was the high strikeouts (111 in 469 in 2013 and 134/447 in 2014). Well, the strikeouts are down this year (13 in 61-AB) but so is the pop (3-HR, 10-RBI). Add to that the fact that he's playing 2015 as a 26-year old (repeating AA) and his prospect days are over.
A+ - St. Lucie - no game scheduled
A - Savannah (7-12) 7 - Delmarva (11-8) 5
RHSP Corey Oswalt - 6.0-IP, 7-H, 3-R, 4-K, 1-BB, 4.84
2B Jean Rodriguez - 3-4, 1-R, 1-RBI, .288
CF John Mora - 2-4, 2-R, double, 2-RBI, .286
SSw Luis SSwllorme - 2-4, BB, R, .306
A couple of their top hitters lead the Gnats to a much needed win. Came from behind in the 7th after being down 4-2.
