St. Lucie 10, Palm Beach 0

Tim Stronach had the game of his life this afternoon, taking a perfect game into the 8th, and a no hitter into the 9th, losing the perfecto on a HBP in the 8th, and losing the no hitter with 1 down in the 9th on a triple. Stronach only struck out 1, getting his other 24 outs via groundball (14), and flyball (10). Stronach is a fringy prospect at 23 1/2 years old, but that doesn’t take away from his masterpiece today. He lowered his ERA by 2.9 runs with his effort, and earned his first win of the season.

The Mets scored early and often, with 4 in the first getting them off on the right foot. They hammered out 15 hits and drew 3 walks, while going 6 for 12 with RISP, leaving 7 on base. The 456 hitters (Guzman, Welch, Pena) each had a homer and 3 hits in the game, every regular had at least one hit.

Savannah 3, Kannapolis 1

Jeurys Familia carried a no hitter into the 6th, before allowing a run in the inning, but he picked up his 7th win of the season, despite not receiving much offensive support (4 hits, 2 walks, 3 runs, 1 earned). Familia allowed just a run on 1 hit and a walk in 6 innings. Rhiner Cruz pitched around 2 hits in the 9th for save #17. The Gnats were just 1 for 7 (.149) with RISP, and left 6 men on base. Jefry Marte (1 for 3, run, K, .239 – left the game after tripping over a bat (more funny then concerning…), Wilmer Flores (1 for 4, run, 3b, .281) and Sean Ratliff (2 for 4, run, 2b, 3b, 2 RBI, .270) had the only hits for the Gnats.

Brooklyn 4, Williamsport 3

Brandon Moore had another fantastic outing tonight, giving up just 2 runs on 4 hits with 9 strikeouts in 8 innings for his 4th win, and despite putting a scare into people, Michael Powers picked up his 4th save, allowing a run on 2 hits in the 9th.

The Cyclones offense had 9 hits and 2 walks, while going 4 for 13 (.308) with RISP, leaving 8 on base. Sam Honeck returned to the lineup after missing the last 5 days with the Cyclones only multi hit game. Luis Rivera (0 for 3, BB, K, .342) took the only 0-fer.

Kingsport 4, Princeton 10

Damn those smart kids can hit! Or it could be that Mets pitching is just deplorable. Actually, it’s probably the latter. Guillaume LeDuc took up that mantle tonight, getting absolutely oblierated, giving up 9 hits (including a homer) and 9 runs (8 earned) in 4 innings for his 2nd loss of the season.

The Mets offense had 7 hits, including 2 homers, but it wasn’t close to enough, as they went 1 for 4 with RISP and left 5 on base. Tyler Vaughn had the only multi hit game (2) while Jeff Flagg (0 for 3, 2 Ks, .369), Ryan Mollica (0 for 4, K, .276), RJ Harris (0 for 4, 2 Ks, .250), Juan Torres (0 for 3, run, K, .222) and Gerad Mochizuki (0 for 4, run, 2 Ks, .237) all took 0-fers.
