Mets Minor League Games - 5-20-15


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.

Conforto's homer, his first since April 26, was to the opposite field with 2 outs and 2 strikes in the 9th. Nice to see that kind of clutch at bat from a guy we hope is a future mainstay.

Yeixon Ruiz also deserved special mention. The slight, 24 year old had played almost all outfield this year after an error-filled run in the infield.

Besides his 3 hits last night, he channeled his inner Juan Lagares in CF to cut down whatxwould have been the tying runner at the plate in the 9th.
