DOWN UNDER: Mets Minor League Update 9/7/15
2015 REGULAR MINORS SEASON ARE OVER, FOLKS.
The seven teams were over .500 by a combined 50 games.
STAR OF THE DAY: Brock Peterson
HONORABLE MENTION: Joe Belnome, Corey Oswalt
Las Vegas (77-67) 0 - Tacoma 5. HEADED HOME.
Binghamton (77-64) 8 - Altoona 6. ON TO THE PLAYOFFS
St Lucie - season is over - 68-70. HEADED HOME.
Savannah (84-53) 4 - Greenville 2. ON TO THE PLAYOFFS
Brooklyn (33-43) 2 - Staten Island 4. HEADED HOME.
Kingsport: season and playoffs over: 40-28, lost playoffs 2-1
Now Here's the Scoop:
Las Vegas plays a meaningless game # 144, thanks to a late-season swoon, with 4-0 Tim Stauffer starting.
Stauffer was off his game and took the loss. Vegas hitters managed just 2 hits...season over, 10 games over for the year, swooned late so heading home. Happy winter, boys.
Binghamton hoped to head into its playoffs battle with Reading with a win in their final regular season game. Mickey Jannis started today for a team whose current 25 man roster looks very little like what Bingo started the season with.
Savannah sought to finish 31 games over .500. Done.
Savannah's Corey Oswalt went 6 scoreless innings for his 11th win. Chris Flexen allowed 2 runs in his 3rd inning of work, but the Gnats win anyway, go 31 over, and are playoff-bound. They are Gnaturals.
Brooklyn took its .221 team average into its final contest, hoping to finish with a win and many hits. Nope and nope.
Brooklyn went scoreless for 6 innings, scored two in the 7th, and lost 4-2. A lackluster season has come to an end. 19-38 over the last 57.
GOATS: Brooklyn, St Lucie, and Vegas - no playoffs (sniff).
