Two tight wins, an amazing streak ends, and a blow out loss.
Brad Wieck, with a fine 6 2/3 innings of shutout baseball, with 8 Ks, giving him 43 in his last 28 innings, is our Minor League Player of The Night.
Honorable Mention - Michael Conforto, with 2 hits including his 7th homer, and Luis Guillorme with a 3 single night, raising his batting average to .320.
AAA - Las Vegas - no games scheduled
AA - Harrisbrug (16-22) 10 - Binghamton (22-17) 1
RHSP Gabriel Ynoa - 5.0-IP, 6-H, 5-R, 3-K, 3-BB, 4.25
LF Jayce Boyd - 2-4, 1-R, double, .311
C Albert Cordero - 2-3, .213
An outcome closely resembling a Met-Cardinal game. Pitching was weak. Jayce Boyd's 15th double of the season so far, which is impressive. Could he be being groomed to replace John Mayberry in 2016?
A+ - St. Lucie - (18-22) 4 - Palm Beach (20-20) 3
RHSP Logan Taylor - 6.2-IP, 7-H, 3-R, 7-K, 1-BB, 5.75
LF Michael Conforto - 2-5, 2-R, 1-HR (7), 1-RBI, .288
1B Dominic Smith - 1-3, double, 1-RBI, .212
Conforto broke a 3 all tie in the top of the 9th with his blast into the seats.
Akeel Morris got the save, but made an error to start the 9th, then after a sac bunt to 2nd, allowed a line single to center. The runner was gunned down at the plate, and Morris retired the final batter for the save. Morris' streak of outs without allowing a hit ended at 38. Congrats on an amazing streak.
A - Savannah (16-22) 2 - Augusta (17-21) 0
LHSP Brad Weick - 6.2-IP, 3-H, 0-R, 8-K, 2-BB, 3.41
SS Luis Guillorme - 3-4, 1-RBI, .320
DH Jonathan Johnson - 2-2, 1-RBI, .333
Brad is beginning to dominate, and he has been a strikeout machine this year and last. Despite solid starts this year, Wieck picked up just his first win against 4 losses. Luis and Jonathan are doing a great job setting the tables for the rest of the hitters on this team.
GOATS: The Binghamton pitchers, including starter Gabe Ynoa, who has been mostly disappointing this year.
