DOWN UNDER: Mets Minor League Results 9/4/15
STAR OF THE DAY: Brandon Nimmo, Logan Taylor
HONORABLE MENTION: Dillon Gee, Dilson Herrera
Las Vegas (76-65) 9 - Tacoma 4
Binghamton (75-63) 0 - Altoona 8
St Lucie (68-68) 4 - Bradenton 1
Savannah (78-49) - Greenville RAINED OUT - AGAIN
Brooklyn (33-40) 3 - Connecticut 4
Kingsport 2- Greeneville 6 Playoff loss - series tied 1-1.
Now Here's the Scoop:
Las Vegas went with 7-3, 4.87 Dillon Gee, and he was superb in this Vegas victory. He went 7 innings, 4 hits and 1 run, and 7 Ks, while moving to 8-3. Just 4 earned runs in his last 4 starts,,,September call up, perhaps?
Brandon Nimmo had 4 hits including another HR. Dilson Herrera hit his 10th, and Josh Rodriguez drove in 3 runs.
Binghamton was never in this one, losing 8-0 in Rob Gsellman's worst game of the year (4 IP, 10 H, 6 R, 3 BB, 2K). Bingo could do nothing offensively vs. 9-3 Steve Brault.
St Lucie went with Logan Taylor who, for the 2nd time in his last 3 starts, allowed just 1 hit, moving to 8-8,3.69 . Vinny Siena knocked in 2 runs with a double. FSL MVP Dominic Smith did not play.
Savannah either wins or gets rained out. Tonight, all wet.
Brooklyn scored 3 in the 6th on a bases loaded double by Brandon Brosher (.179). Unfortunately, that was it for the offense,,,and Cyclone pitchers allowed 4 runs. Do the math, dear reader - another Cyclone defeat.
Kingsport's starter Nabil Crismatt was not bad, but allowed 2 homers and 4 runs over 7 innings. The K Mets scored only 2 runs, so after tonight's loss, tied 1-1 in the best of 3 playoff series.
GOAT: Rob Gsellman
