Mets Minor League Games - 5-23-15

Two wins, two losses, and a ton of Lucie offense.

Minor League Player of The Night - Jeff McNeil, with a double, HR, and 2 singles to pace St Lucie.  Don't misunderestimate this guy, President Bush warned.

Honorable Mention - Michael Conforto and Gavin Cecchini both hit like first rounders should.  Fellow firstie Dom Smith did well too.

AAA - Las Vegas - (27-16) 4- OKC (28-13) 6

    RHSP Matt Bowman - six runs surrendered (4 earned) in another sub-par Bowman outing. A four run 7th was his undoing, but in fairness, 2 runs came in after he left the game.  And like most Vegas starters, he got a hit.

 Three hits for T J Rivera, 2 run shot from Brandon Allen, Matt Reynolds only 7 for 41 in his last 10 games, and Travis had a Taijeron Special (1-4, 3 Ks).

AA - Binghamton (24-18) 5 - Akron (18-24) 4

    RHSP John Gant -  3.2-IP, 6-H, 4-R, 1-K, 4-BB, 4.75

    SS Gavin Cecchini -   3-5, 1-R, double, 1-HR (4), 2-RBI, .303

    RHRP Vic Black - 1.0-IP, 1-H, 0-R, 2-K, 0-BB, 0.00

Binghamton rallied from 4-1 down, adding a run in the 8th and 2 in the ninth for the final margin. Gavin Cecchini continues to impress with the stick. Gil Gomez also on 3 times, with a homer thrown in. 

 Vic Black, Hutchingon, and Wheeler struck out 10 in 5 1/3 scoreless innings.  Yay, Vic.

A+ - St. Lucie (20-23) 14  -  Dunedin (19-24) 2

    RHSP Kevin McGowan -  5.0-IP, 5-H, 2-R, 5-K, 3-BB, 5.11

    3B Jeff McNeil -    4-6, 4-R, 1-HR (1), 1-RBI, .338

    LF Michael Conforto - 3-5, 2-R, double, 3-RBI, .298

The Michael and Jeff Show. Lusty hitting from the two hombres. 

But besides them, SIX other St Lucie hitters had 2 hits apiece in a 19 hit bludgeoning.  Dom Smith has 2 RBIs and C Colton Plaia had 4.  Whoo-whee.

Akeel Morris tossed (what else) a hitless inning in relief.  The movie is coming out, Hitless in St Lucie.

A - Rome (18-24) 9  - Savannah (19-23) 5

    RHSP Martires Arias -   3.1-IP, 2-H, 4-R, 3-K, 4-BB, 3.51

    RF Wuilmer Buccera -   2-5, 1-R, 1-HR (5), 1-RBI, .259

    SS Luis Guillorme -  2-4, 1-R, .324
Arias had an off starting night, made much worse by the Gnat pen.  Wuilmer Becerra continues to show you can in fact hit homers as a member of the Gnats, and Luis G continues his singles assault.  

Three errors, bad pitching, a loss.

GOAT: Savannah  relief pitching fueled the Gnats' loss.
