Las Vegas started Dillon Gee, 6-3, 5.53 coming into the contest and happy to be pitching at sea level. And he showed it, pitching 7 shutout innings. He and 2 relievers combined on a 10 hit shutout.
Allen (16) and Ceciliani (9) went deep, and Eric Campbell had 3 hits.
Binghamton's two starters were Kevin McGowan (1st AA start) and Adam Kolarek!
Adam has been brilliant in relief in July and August, having allowed just 1 earned run in his last 24 outings and 26.2 innings, and has 45 relief-only outings in 2015. Interesting. How'd they do?
In game 1, McGowan got hammered...3.1 innings, 9 hits, 5 runs. Akeel Morris retired all hitters he faced in 2.2 IP, with three Ks. Hitters managed only 1 run, so a loss in Game 1.
Kolarek started great in Game 2. Only allowed 1 run in the 4th (allowed by Walters). Sadly, it was enough to lose, as B Mets scored only once.
St Lucie rolled out Jake Keubler, 4-0 1.23 coming in. Scoreless thru 4, Lucie picked up 4 in the 5th, but Charlotte came right back with 3 in the bottom half, pushing Jake's ERA to 2.03.
4-4 tie in 9th was untied by a 2 run Matt Oberste (.297) single for the winning margin. Go, Matt!
Savannah goes with Ricky Knapp, coming in a terrific 7-2, 2.43. But they finally lost for the first time in 3 weeks, 4-1.
Brooklyn was involved in another low scoring game. Brooklyn scored in the 7th to break a scoreless tie, then added 2 more in the 8th. Nine hits in all (2 each for Siena, Garcia (.305), and Rojas).
Kevin Canelon (now 5-4, 3.31) was brilliant tonight. 8 one hit shutout innings, just a 4th inning lined single.
Alex Palsha (0.38) a perfect 9th with 2 Ks for the save (13).
Kingsport's Tom McIlraith (4-1, 2.05) hoped to keep his fine season rollin'. He sure did. Seven shutout innings to move to 5-1, 1.76.
Arnarldo Berrios hit a 2 run shot. Dash Winningham had his 17th two bagger, 49th RBI. Kaczmarski drove in 2 more with his 14th double.
The GCL Mets squandered a late 3 run lead and lost in extra innings. Walter Rasquin (3-4, .284) had all but 2 of the Mets' hits, having slowly faded as a team to .230.
