A+ Florida State League: St. Lucie 6/12/1 vs Jupiter 8/11/2 in 10 innings

This one was a back and forth affair from the getgo, after the Mets jumped Jupiter’s Jake Esch for 4 in the first, Jupiter responded by knocking St. Lucie’s Gabriel Ynoa out of the game in the 3rd inning. From there, the bullpens restored order, but single runs in the 4th and 9th sent the game to extra innings, where Randy Fontanez gave up 2 runs in the top of the 10th to lose the game. Ynoa got smoked, giving up 6 runs on 8 hits and 3 walks in 2.2 innings. Paul Sewald, Julian Hilario and Bret Mitchell followed with 6.1 innings of hitless relief, walking 2 between them and giving the Mets ample opportunity to tie it, which they eventually did. However, following an intentional walk to TJ Rivera, Aderlin Rodriguez struck out and Cam Maron flew out to center, stranding the bases loaded in the bottom of the 9th, sending the game to extras.

Dilson Herrera and Brandon Nimmo have routinely been getting on base multiple times per game recently, and tonight was no exception, they combined to reach base 6 times, scoring three runs. Aderlin and Maron, the culprits in the failed walkoff attempt in the 9th, nonetheless were instrumental in the scoring, both grabbing 2 hits, and combining for 3 RBI.

A South Atlantic League: Savannah 4/5/1 @ Augusta 1/5/2

The combination of Rob Whalen (1 run in 5 innings) and Miller Diaz (no runs in 4 innings) held the GreenJackets at bay tonight, and Gavin Cecchini’s big day out of the leadoff spot (single, double, walk, 2 runs scored) propelled the Gnats to victory. Whalen got the start, his first in full season ball after relieving in his first SAL action 6 days ago, and he was magnificant, firing 5 innings and allowing just an UER on 2 hits while striking out 6 for the win. Miller Diaz allowed just 3 hits in 4 shutout innings for his first save of the season.

The Mets scored early and often, scoring in 6 of their 8 offensive innings, never more than 3 runs, but just pecking away at Jupiter pitching. Six Mets had multi hit games, four Mets drove in multiple runs. Every Met from 1 thru 8 reached based at least twice and scored a run. Matt Koch got roughed up, giving up 5 runs on 7 hits in 5.2 innings, he got a ND.

The Greenjackets scored first upon resumption of the game, but the Gnats scored last, putting up 2 in the 6th and one in the 7th to win it 3-1. Dario Alvarez picked up for Kevin McGowan, allowing 2 hits and 2 walks in 4.2 innings to notch the win.

Joel Carreno, Josh Edgin and Jeff Walters fired 4 shutout innings out of the Vegas bullpen. Edgin, however, lowered his ERA to 10.38.

Greg Peavey got rocked again, giving up 5 runs on 2 hits but 4 walks in 5.1 innings for his first loss of the season. His ERA is 6.75 through 2 starts. Adam Kolarek allowed 3 runs on 4 hits and a walk in 1.2 innings to somehow take a blown save. Peavey is fast pitching his way to “release” territory, in my opinion.

A+ Florida State League: St. Lucie 3/13/0 vs Jupiter 12/15/1

A 7th inning bullpen implosion turned a winnable 3-1 game into a 12-1 rout, damage occured against Julian Hilario and Bret Mitchell, who combined to give up 10 runs over 1.2 innings of relief. Luis Cessa started and was ok, giving up 2 runs on 6 hits and 2 walks in 5 innings. The Mets offense hammered out 13 hits but were just 2 for 10 with RISP and left 8 on base. Brandon Nimmo had the lone multi hit game among prospects.

Note: For the purposes of MPH, I do not consider TJ Rivera, Aderlin Rodriguez, or Cam Maron to be prospects. If anyone objects, I will rethink my position.

A South Atlantic League: Savannah 0/0/0 @ Augusta 0/2/1

This game was suspended in the bottom of the 5th with Kevin McGowan on the mound. His opposite number was throwing a no hitter. The game will be resumed tomorrow.
