DOWN UNDER: Mets Minor League Update 9/6/15
Losses in all 5 minor league games, plus the NY Mets loss, made this one awful day for the organization.
STAR OF THE DAY: Matt Reynolds
HONORABLE MENTION: Akeel Morris
Las Vegas (77-66) 3 - Tacoma 6
Binghamton (76-64) 1 - Altoona 4
St Lucie (68-70) 2- Bradenton 6
Savannah (83-53) 4 - Greenville 5
Brooklyn (33-42) 2 - Staten Island 4
Now Here's the Scoop:
Las Vegas went with Logan Verrett in hopes of making the playoffs in the final 2 days of the season. Hopes dimmed as Logan Verrett allowed 5 runs in the 6th and lost. El Paso won in extra innings to cinch it. No playoffs for Vegas.
Matt Reynolds showed signs of life, going 4-4 (.270) with 2 doubles (32). Dilson Herrera 2-5 (.331). Call DH up.
Binghamton rolled with Gabe Ynoa, hoping to win his 10th in what has to been a disappointing season.
Binghamton has lost a bunch of its best offensive players and runs are harder to come by e.g., tonite's 4-1 loss.
Ynoa pitched 6 innings, allowing 2 runs, 5 hits and rang up 6 K's. He finished the regular season at 9-9, 3.90. Akeel Morris fanned 3 in his one inning of work. Smoker allowed 2 runs in his inning.
Duda had a hit and walk in 4 plate appearances. Bring him back ASAP. No other real B Met offense to speak of.
St Lucie went with Kyle Regnault (4-4, 1.94 in 38 relief appearances) as its starter today. He was good, but Kelly Secrest allowed 5 runs. Matt Oberste (.301) and Colton Plaia (.285) had 2 hits apiece in the loss.
Savannah gave Casey Delgado (8-3, 2.91) the nod. He fell to 8-4, allowing all 5 runs in a 5-4 loss. Montgomery and Paez each threw effective innings. Paez has been very effective in relief in 2015, 4-2, 2.14.
Brooklyn looked to play its final 2 games at home against the Staten Island Yanks today and on Labor Day. Today a 10 inning loss Conlon allowed two runs in the 10th, but both were unearned, leaving him with a 0.00 ERA.
