DOWN UNDER: Mets Minor League Update 9/3/15
STAR OF THE DAY: Brooklyn bats
HONORABLE MENTION: K Mets win!
Las Vegas (75-65) 1 - El Paso 10
Binghamton (75-62) 1 - Reading 2
St Lucie (67-68) 2 - Bradenton 4
Savannah (82-51) 5 - Greenville 6
Brooklyn (33-39) 5 - Connecticut 3
Kingsport (37-27) - Greeneville: Playoff game 2-1 win
Now Here's the Scoop:
Las Vegas yelled " It's Seth Lugo Time!" At least, that's how I picture it :)
I don't care where you go, I go for Lugo. Especially since he left Bingo.
Anyway, after all that build up, Lugo gave up 3 runs in 4 IP. Matt Bowman gave up 4 runs in laughing, and Thornto 3 runs. The 51s offense did zip. El Paso passed the 51s by a half game.
Binghamton rolled with knucklballin' Mickey Jannis. He was great, but he lost as Bingo hitters managed just 2 hits and a run. TJ Rivera homered (.350).
St Lucie went with Scarlyn Reyes who allowed 2 runs over 6 innings. Lucie did not hit, and lost.
Savannah got washed out last night, but they're far from washed up. 75-34 in their past 109 games, actually.
Josh Prevost hoped to keep the Big Gnat Machine rolling tonight. But despite a 5-2 lead, four late runs coughed up this game. Becerra 3 RBI game gave him 62.
Brooklyn (32-39 coming in) hoped to avoid 40 loss humiliation tonight. And so they did. Timely hitting today.
Kingsport's playoff push starts tonight, after an incredibly hot last 25 games. And game 1 went well, with a 2-1 win..
GOAT: Matt Bowman and Zach Thornton
