Now Here's the Scoop:
Las Vegas handed the ball to Princeton's finest, Matt Bowman. He wasn't so fine, allowing 4 runs in 4.2 IP. Torres and Alvarez each went a scoreless inning, with 2 Ks apiece. Only 2 hits each by Kirk and Reynolds on a quiet hitting night. Sea level is TOUGH!
TJ Rivera brought the lumber, going 4-4 (.343). Looking more and more major league ready. Binghamton went with Zany Rainy Lara. He threw a great 6, and Goeddel, Walters, and Wheeler tossed 3 hitless innings to seal the blow out.
St Lucie pitched Blue Ribbon Michael Gibbons tonite. He was solid, but Dave Roseboom got hammered, surrendering 5 runs.
Savannah has the day off, folks.
Brooklyn's Ty Badamo was hoping for offensive support tonight. Th was great, but Nicco Blank surrendered 3 relief runs to absorb the loss, leaving with a blank look. The Cyclones managed just 2 runs.
Kingsport's Dandy Merandy Gonzalez started for the K Mets in Game 1, and Harol Gonzalez in Game 2.
Merandy truly was dandy, tossing 6 shutout innings, only 2 hits, 6 Ks. Kaczmarski reached base 4 times In game 1.
In game 2, 13 hits could not overcome 3 homers allowed by the other Gonzalez, Harol, and 3 unearned runs He allowed. A split.
GCL Mets went to a paint store and got shellacked today, 15-5.
Their 2 run 9th inning rally fell 10 runs short. Nothing else to say.
GOAT: GCL pitching, or lack thereof; Harol Gonzalez
