Last Night on the Farm - 8/13/13
The Mets had some problems winning games last night, but there was plenty of interesting stuff going on down on the farm, let’s take a look:Las Vegas 4, New Orleans 3Jacob deGrom threw 6 scoreless innings, but ran into trouble in the 7th, ultimately pitching 6.2 innings, allowing 3 runs on 9 hits, with 1 walk and 6 strikeouts. deGrom also homered in the game; he's hitting .308. Eric Campbell was 2 for 4 with a double and RBI. Travis d'Arnaud was 0 for 2 with 2 walks; in 17 AAA games this year, d'Arnaud has walked 18 times.Reading 7, Binghamton 6Erik Goeddel allowed 4 runs on 8 hits over 5.2 innings, walking 2 and striking out 4. Jeff Walters gave up 2 runs in the bottom of the 9th; just his 3rd blown save of the season. Allan Dykstra hit a 3-run homer. Cory Vaughn had 2 hits and 1 RBI. St. Lucie 5, Fort Myers 4Rainy Lara let up 4 runs on 6 hits over 6 innings, with no walks and 5 strikeouts. Cody Satterwhite and T.J. Chism combined for 3 shutout innings to secure the win for the Lucies. Kyle Johnson, T.J. Rivera, Kevin Plawecki, Matt Reynolds, and Charley Thurber all had 2 hits each. Plawecki hit a 2-run homer, his second since his promotion to St. Lucie. Rome 2, Savannah 1Gabriel Ynoa allowed just 1 run on 3 hits over 6 innings, with no walks and 4 strikeouts, but Wanel Mesa let up the game-winning run in the 8th. Brandon Nimmo was 1 for 2 with 2 walks. Princeton 2, Kingsport 0 (Game 1, 7 innings)Martires Arias took the loss after giving up just 2 runs over 6 innings. The K-Mets were held scoreless on just 6 hits. Princeton 6, Kingsport 2 (Game 2, 7 innings)Yoan Gonzalez gave up 4 runs (2 earned) over 3 innings to take the loss. Zach Dotson gave up 2 runs in 1 inning of work. Dotson has pitched just 1.2 innings over the past 2 seasons, but he was a big over slot signing in the 13th round in 2009. Heading into the 2011 season, he was 20th on my top prospect list, but he has been long since forgotten. Richie Rodriguez had 2 hits, including a homer. Pedro Perez doubled, as the 18-year old Colombian continues to have a solid season. GCL Marlins 2, GCL Mets 1Third round pick Casey Meisner gave up 1 unearned run over 6 innings, allowing 4 hits and 3 walks, striking out 3. Dominic Smith was 2 for 4. Oswald Caraballo was 2 for 4 with a double. NYPL All-Star Game: AL 4, NL 3The Cyclones sent 5 players to the All-Star Game. Miller Diaz started and gave up 1 run in the 1st inning. Robert Gsellman struck out 2 in a scoreless 5th inning. John Mincone blew the save and took the loss after giving up 2 runs in the 9th. John Gant made the team but did not make an appearance. L.J. Mazzilli was 0 for 1, subbing in at second d base midway through the game.
