St. Lucie 4, Palm Beach 5

St. Lucie fell behind 5-1 after 8, then rallied for 3 in the 9th, but could not push the tying run across, with Francisco Pena flying out, stranding Stefan Welch on second to end the game. Welch and Greg Veloz had multi hit games, while Kirk Nieuwenhuis (0 for 5, run, RBI, 4 Ks, .241), and Pena (0 for 5, K, .232) took 0-fers. The Mets had 9 hits and drew 6 walks, and were a stellar 6 for 18 with RISP, but left 11 on base.

Savannah 0, Kannapolis 2

Chris Schwinden scattered 10 hits over 8 innings, but allowed a pair of runs (2nd, 3rd innings), and that was enough for the loss tonight, as the Gnats had just 4 hits and 2 walks, and were 0 for 3 with RISP, and left 3 on base. Jefry Marte (1 for 4, 2b, 3 Ks, .239, E (34)), Sean Ratliff (1 for 3, K, .270), Joey August (1 for 3, .115), and Imbewer Alvarez (1 for 3, 2 Ks, .192) had the hits, everyone else took 0-fers.

Brooklyn 1, Williamsport 3

Afrer starting the year with 3 straight shutout efforts (6, 7, 6 innings), Jim Fuller’s gone 6 innings in each of his last 2 starts, giving up 3 (last outing) and 2 (today) runs, both resulting in losses. Today, he pitched 6 innings, allowed 2 runs on 3 hits, striking out 9, but still picked up his second loss of the season.

The Conies offense was limited to just an UER on 4 hits and 2 walks, and they were just 1 for 6 (.167) with RISP, leaving 5 on base. Justin Garber (2 for 4, .429), had the only multi hit game for the Cyclones, he, Andy Green (1 for 3, BB, .263) and Robbie Shields (1 for 2, K, .125 – first pro hit) had the only hits today.

Kingsport 9, Princeton 12

Yeah, another night of, to be quite frank, simply apocolyptically abysmally massive fail pitching from Kingsport. Through 23 games, the Mets have given up 178 runs, for an average of 7.74 runs against. Tonight it was Jhonathan Torres in his Kingsport debut, he gave up 10 runs, but inexplicably, only 1 earned run, as a 2 out error in the 2nd opened the floodgates for 8 runs.

The Mets offense certainly did well enough to win, as they do most nights, they had 10 hits and 3 walks while going 3 for 11 (.273) with RISP, leaving 7 on base. Darrell Ceciliani (2), Tyler Vaughn (2), and Pedro Zapata (2) had multi hit games, while Alonzo Harris (0 for 5, 2 Ks, .271), and John Freeman (0 for 5, 2 Ks, .164) took 0-fers.
