Minor League Player of The Night - starters, especially Casey Meisner. All 7 starters tossed well.
Honorable Mention - Anthony Recker lowered the boom, and Rafael Ramirez with a dramatic walk off triple.
AAA - Las Vegas - (44-32) 7 - Sacramento (32-44) 1
LHSP Darin Gorski - 5.2 IP,4 H, 1 R, 3 BB, 4 K, 1 HR, 5.35
It was the Recker the Wrecker show in Vegas, with Anthony going 4 for 4 with 2 homers and 3 RBIs. Taijeron had 2 hits, including a triple and RBI # 40, and clocks in at .303.
Gorski pitched well as did 3 relievers. Vic Black tossed .1 innings and walked 1.
AA - Binghamton - (37-36) 0 - Akron (40-35) 3
RHSP Gabriel Ynoa - 8.0-IP, 8-H, 3-R, 5-K, 0-BB, 4.60
Cool the Confortojets just a bit. He (and Nimmo) went 0-4, and are hitting .326 and .310, respectively. A very solid start for Gabe Ynoa, but a loss nonetheless.
3 errors (2 by Dustin Lawley,who has made 13, and is hitting .205) made 2 of Gabe's 3 runs allowed of the earned variety.
Oupitched by Adam Plutko of the Duckies who was terrific.
A+ - St Lucie - ( 37-36) 3 - Tampa (34-38) 1
RHSP Casey Meisner - 7.0-IP, 3-H, 1-R, 6-K, 1-BB, 1.29
With Casey Meisner excelling in his Lucie debut, and the support of the law firm of Murphy and McNeil (2 hits each, and 2 RBIs for Murph, and Jeff up to.339), and a fine 2 inning save by Josh Smoker (1.96), St Lucie showed how it is done.
Casey's only run allowed came in the 7th.
A - Savannah - postponed - rain
Low-A - Brooklyn - Postponed - rain
Rookie - Kingsport - (3-2) 5 - Bluefield (3-2) 4
RHSP Darwin Ramos - 6.0-IP, 1-H, 0-R, 5-K, 1-BB, 0.00
Darwin evolved from struggling full season reliever to fine short season ball starter tonight, allowing just 1 hit over 6.
A 1-0 squeaker through 8, but the Mets allowed 4 in the 9th. Game over? Heck, no, they scored 4 in the bottom half for a stunning walk off win. Quite an inning.
With Haggard sputtered in his debut, allowing 4 runs and 4 walk. and a wild pitch in 0.2 IP. Shake it off, buddy.
LF Kevin Kaczmarski had 2 double and 2 RBIs. Speedy Rafael Ramirez had a bad night up until the 9th, but his bases clearing, walk off triple shows hope spring eternal.
Rookie - GCL - (1-4) 1 - Nationals (3-3) 4
RHSP Jeff Walters - 1.0-IP, 0-H, 0-R, 2-K, 0-BB, 0.00
The GCL boys are hitting .179 thru 5 games. Kenny Bautista (.333) homered for one of their 2 hits.
Rookie - DSL 1 - Mets (13-12) -5 - Red Sox (7-18) 2
In one inning, Mets scored 5, Sox 2. Rest of the game involved goose eggs for both sides.
Luis Mateo allowed 2 6th inning runs. Wuender Fernandez tossed 3.1 innings of scoreless relief.
Rookie - DSL 2 - Mets (16-9) 8 - Marlins (8-17) 3
LHSP Aneury Olivo - 5.0-IP, 3-H, 3-R, 4-K, 2-BB, 1.95
In one inning, Mets scored 5, Marlins 2. Sounds familiar.
Rest of game low scoring.
Grabiel Jimenez (.337) with his 7th double and 3rd triple. Yanfi Adon hit his 2nd homer. Boris Sanchez with 4 shutout innings in relief.
GOAT: Binghamton's slumbering bats. Witt Haggard.
