Minor League Player of The Night - Akeel Morris promoted to the friggin' Mets!
Honorable Mention - Dominic Smith awesome. Conforto walks off like a man.
AAA - Las Vegas (35-29) 8 - Reno (26-37) 7
RHSP Logan Verrett - 7.2-IP, 6-H, 2-R, 5-K, 0-BB, 3.00
3B-LF Alex Castellanos - 3-4, 2-R, 2-doubles, 1-RBI, .273
C Dan Rohlfing - 3-4, 1-R, 1-HR (2), 3-RBI, .233
The bullpen tried to give this one away, as Verrett left with an 8-1 lead.
AA - Binghamton (32-30) 6 - New Britian (35-27) 5
RHSP Seth Lugo - 6.0-IP, 7-H, 4-R, 5-K, 1-BB, 3.72
C Xorge Carillo - 2-4, 1-R, .253
3B Josh Rodriguez - 2-2, 1-R, double, 2-RBI, .277
Decent game from Lugo. Bingo rallies from 2 down in the 9th, freakin' Conforto with another walk off hit. Love this guy!
A+ - St. Lucie (32-31) 5 - Palm Beach (29-34) 2
RHSP Kevin McGowan - 8.0-IP, 4-H, 2-R, 4-K, 0-BB, 4.26
RHRP Akeel Morris - 1.0-IP, 1-H, 0-R, 2-K, 0-BB, 13-save, 1.69
1B Dominic Smith - 4-4, double, 2-RBI, .298
Akeel and Dominic Smith - cream rises to the top. Akeel goes straight to the Mets after another stellar outing, and Smith is too hot for words. Average up 155 points in 30 games or so.
Very nice start by Mr. McGowan.
A - Savannah - (34-29) 1 - Hickory (40-22) 8
RHSP Ricky Knapp - 5 IP, 4 H, 0 BB, 0 R, 1.69 (in Savannah).
Darwin Fries gets smoked again in relief. ERA of nearly 9.
Guy who beat the Gnats (Ariel Jurado) is an amazing 17-1 in his career, 9-0 this year. Vicente Lupo heating up, now at .219.
Rookie - DSL 1 - no game scheduled
Rookie - DSL 2 - no game scheduled
GOAT: Vegas and Gnat bullpens were awful last night.
