Mets 2 - 11-9.  Four in the 8th for a comeback win.

Merandy Gonzalez tosses a 7 inning NO HITTER in the 2nd game,walking just 1 and fanning 6.  Congratulations. NO HITTERS are rare in Met Land.

The first game, completion of a suspended game, resulted in a come-from-behind win by the Marlins.

Luis Cessa started game 1 and was superb, allowing no earned runs in 5.2 IP.  Alex Castellanos went 3-3, with 2 doubIes. Danny Muno hit a solo shot.

Logan Verrett took to the hill in the nightcap and was spectacular, tossing 6 shutout innings. Casstellanos again was the main offensive cog, with a double (32), single, and his 52nd RBI.  

ALEX ALERT: in his last 32 games, Castellanos is hitting .395 with 23 extra base hits. Call him up.

Michael Fulmer dominant again.  Seven IP, no earned runs, 7 Ks.  Fulmer has allowed just 2 earned runs over his last 6 starts spanning 36.1 innings.  ERA drops to 2.06. Awesome.

Cecchini & Nimmo each 1-4, Conforto 0-3 with a BB.

St Lucie had back-to-back 3 run innings late in the game to win going away. Sabol, Cruzado, and Evans each plated 2 runs. Kelly Secrest moved to 6-2, 2.7 in relief.

Savannah split the twin bill.   Eudor Garcia (7) and Tomas Nido (4) both had a homer and 3 RBIs, as Savannah scored 7 on just 4 hits in game 1.  Scarlyn Reyes did not have his best outing but still improved to 9-4.

In contrast, game 2 produced no runs and just 3 hits. Michael Gibbons pitched well in the loss.

Brooklyn wins 1-0 in a rain-shortened 7 inning affair.  Blake Taylor and Andrew Church each threw 3 dominant innings in the win, as the Cyclones moved to 14-5. The team's ERA dropped to 2.22.

Kingsport lost in the 11th.  2015 draftee Thomas Mcilrath fanned 5 and walked 4 in 2.2 IP. Kingsport's ERA (4.88) is more than twice that of Brooklyn's.

GOAT: Kingsport pitching

Check out the production of Castellanos. AAA illusion, or worth a call up?

Verrett was a SP until this year, and excelled in the pen this season in Queens.His return to SP in Vegas is off to a bright start.Because of the 4-day ASG break, the Mets won't need a 6th SP until Wednesday the 22nd, giving Logan time for 2 more starts.It could be he instead of Gee who replaces Matz in the rotation. He also has the advantage of being on the 40-man. Gee is not.

Interesting...I forgot Gee is not on 40 man. He could easily get passed over then. We need some Logan Slogans to help get him back here.
