Las Vegas sent Luis Cessa to toe the rubber tonight. He struggled again...AAA is tough. Travis Taijeron hit 2 bombs tonight (16 and 17) but the Vegas pen folded late. Travis must have picked up on last night's Citifield vibe.
Binghamton's Rainy Lara (5-2, 3.60) was tabbed to pitch in sunny Trenton. Just one bad inning, a 3 run 6th. Three more runs than he could afford to give up, as the B Mets only managed two hits (Cecchini and d'Arnaud).
St Lucie pitched Logan Taylor in completing a suspended game, 5-1. Increasingly tough, Taylor tossed 5 shutout innings. Matt Oberste had 3 hits, 3 RBIs.
Miller Diaz started game 2 and he was spotted a 4 run lead in the first; not enough, as he surrendered 6. Oberste? After his fine first game, an encore? Yep, more hits and RBIs (.273). Taylor Brennan (no relation) hit the go-ahead 2 run homer for Brevard County to avoid the sweep.
Savannah sent Ricky Knapp to the mound a night after the Gnats mercilessly pounded their opponents. The ball was flying out, with Knapp surrendering 3 homers and the Gnats' Michael Katz and Tyler Moore going deep. The Gnats scored the last 4, but they needed 5. Hence the loss.
Brooklyn's Gabe Almonte went 6 scoreless for the win. The Sigh-Clones (.222) managed a mere two hits, but pushed 2 across the plate for the 2-1 win.
Kingsport's Darwin Ramos started and was not good, and the hitters did little. That spells "5-3 loss".
GCL Mets - yep, Desmond Lindsay finally got to get to the dish, and his first 2 times up, a hit and a walk. While 2 strikeouts followed , welcome aboard. Stop gap reliever Marvin Monitjo came and surrendered 3 late runs for the loss. Monitjo has allowed 16 runs in 15 innings this year.
In game 2, Ronald Guedez came in with an ERA barely above 2.00. Catching phenom Ali Sanchez singled to drive in a first inning run. But that was the end of the good news. Guedez wasn't very Gued.
DSL METS 1: one in the 9th to tie, one in the 10th to walk off. The walk off hit was brought to you by our favorite 16 year old, Kenny Hernandez (now up to .171).
ERRORS...Whoops, I did it again. Ahh, the foibles of youth. May they learn the errors of their ways. And that, dear friends, ends today's sermon...err...recap.
This is a non-power league. In 96 games, the Mets' 2 teams have 22 HRs. The White Sox have a team that in 48 games has hit 1 homer. One!
GOAT: Marvin Monitjo, Miller Diaz
