Minor League Player of The Night - Gabe Ynoa's near-perfection
Honorable Mention - Alex Castellanos, Pat Mazelka, Ali Sanchez, Ranfi Adon, killer Cyclone relief.
AAA - Las Vegas - (46-35) 12 - Tacoma (40-41) 2
LHSP Darin Gorski - 7 IP, 7 H, 2 R, 1 BB, 3 K, 5.11
A BUTT WHIPPING of the laddies from Tacoma.
Castellanos had a homer and 3 hits, cracking the .300 plateau and is now up to 43 XBHs in 70 games.
Kirk is hitting .340 with 7 dingers in just 50 ABs. He does 8 Ks in the last 5 games, though. Gorski continues to plug along, only allowing 2 sixth inning runs.
AA - Binghamton - (40-38) 5 - Erie (30-48) 0
RHSP Gabriel Ynoa - 9.0-IP, CG, 1-H, 0-R, 6-K, 0-BB, 4.12
Gabe was 1 third inning double away from a perfect game. He only needed 103 pitches for his third career shut out.
Aderlyn Rodriguez had a two-run homer, his 8th, is hitting .242. Conforto 1 for 4, 2 RBI, .327.
A+ - St. Lucie - (39-39) 4 - Jupiter (39-39) 10
RHSP Logan Taylor - 4.1-IP, 12-H, 7-R, 3-K, 1-BB, 5.07
Logan's Heroes was not the theme song last night. Taylor has been unimpressive in 2015. Victor Cruzado (.250) hit his 2nd homer of 2015. Dominic Smith was 2-5, with his 48th RBI, and is hitting .300.
A - Savannah - Postponed - Rain
I thought it never rains in Savannah (where's my umbrella, dude?)
Low-A - Brooklyn - (9-4) 2 - Hudson Valley 1
RHSP Gaby Almonte - 6.0-IP, 5-H, 1-R, 7-K, 1-BB, 3.71
In a tight affair, the Cyclones scratch out two 7th inning runs with hits from David Thompson (.375), Jeff Diehl ( .387), and Zabala. SS Alfredo Reyes breathed a huge sigh of relief with 2 hits, raising his average to .125.
Christian Montgomery struck out the side in the 7th for the win - so far in 2015, he is 5.1 IP, 2 H, 0 BB, 9 K. Super.
Alex Palsha got his 3rd save with 2 hitless innings, 4 Ks, and like Montgomery, has yet to allow a run in 2015. 2B Vince Sienna got on base twice and is still hitting .400.
Rookie - Kingsport - (5-5) 4 - Burlington (6-4) 6
RHSP Darwin Ramos - 5.0-IP, 5-H, 4-R, 5-K, 3-BB, 3.27
Pat Mazelka has two hits, including a homer, and 3 RBIs, and is hitting .306.
Rookie - GCL - Mets (5-4) 2 - Nats (5-5) 0
RHSP Ronald Guedez - 6.0-IP, 3-H, 0-R, 1-K, 1-BB, 0.82
Ali Sanchez hitting .520 with 3 more hits. W...O...W.
High draft pick Max Wotell explodes out of the gate by fanning the side in his first pro inning. Awesome.
Ivan Wilson has not changed his evil K ways, fanning all 4 times to the plate in his first game of 2015.
Rookie - DSL 1 Mets (16-13) 0 - Dodgers (14-15) 1
LHSP Daniel Guzman - 6.0-IP, 3-H, 1-R, 5-K, 1-BB, 3.42
Guzman gets a valuable lesson...in the Mets organization, even allowing one run can spell doom.
Rookie - DSL 2 - Mets (16-13) 9 - Rangers (16-13) 2
In the "what a relief" department, 2 struggling hombres had big offensive nights. Ranfi Adon (.235) had a fine 2 innings, with a 3 run homer (3), and a 2 run triple in the 4th. Danny Cedeno (.217) had 3 hits and RBIs.
GOAT: Ivan Wilson, Logan Taylora
