Mets Minor League Games - 5-19-15


2 shutouts, a nailbiter, and an umbrella.

Minor League Player of The Night - Duane Below

Duane who?  Please see Below.

Honorable Mention - Gavin Cecchini and Travis Taijeron, both of whom had 2 hits including a round tripper last night.

AAA - Las Vegas (26-14) 2 -  Tacoma (17-23) 0

    LHSP Duane Below - 9.0-IP, CG, 4-H, 0-R, 2-K, 1-BB, 2.51

    LF-1B Alex Castellanos - 1-4, double, 1-RBI, .299

    SS Matt Reynolds -  1-4, double, .290

    RF Travis Taijeron - 2-3, HR (7), RBI, .346

Duane Below, who has over 70 major league innings in his dossier of work, was masterful, taking a low pitch 2 hit shutout into the 9th. Despite 2 hits that inning, he persisted for the rare 9 inning shutout. Best lefty starter in Vegas not named Matz. BTW, Tacoma is roughly at sea level, and it was a low scoring few games there so far for the 51s. Altitude does help the hitters.

AA - Binghamton (22-16) 7  - Harrisburg (15-22) 6

    RHSP Rainy Lara -  2.0-IP, 6-H, 4-R, 1-K, 0-BB, 3.41

    SS Gavin Cecchini - 2-5, 2-R, double, HR (3), 2-RBI, .292 

    LF Jayce Boyd -  2-4, 1-R, double, .305

Bingo rallied for 4 in the latter innings. Save #6 for Paul Sewald, who surrendered an unearned 9th inning run to make their fans sweat.  Better than losing 10-2, though!  Boyd still looking for his first dinger, but is racking up doubles.

A+ - Palm Beach (20-19) 3  -  St. Lucie (17-22) 0

    RHSP Miller Diaz -   5.1-IP, 8-H, 2-R, 5-K, 3-BB, 3.06 

    LF Michael Conforto  -  2-5, . 285

Dominic Smith also doubled on a quiet offensive night by the Lucindas.  Kyle Regnault struck out 4 in 1.2 innings of relief.    

A - Savannah - game delayed due to rain

    RHSP Corey Owalt - tossed 4 innings of shutout ball, surrendering 5 hits and striking out 4 without a walk.  Oswalt has been solid but is surrendering more than a hit per inning this season.

Sorry folks....

I'm off to a late start today. Major accident had me stuck on the highway during the drive in this morning.

Putting together the Morning Report now.
