EL AA: Binghamton 2/8/0, Akron 3/6/1

Brad Holt had massive control issues tonight, walking 6 in 6 innings while also allowing 3 hits, leading to 3 runs against him, resulting in his 5th EL loss. Emary Frederick, Roy Merritt and Connor Robertson each followed with a scoreless inning of relief, allowing the Mets to work themselves back into the game with a 2 run 7th, but they could not push across the tying run.

The Mets gathered 8 hits and drew 3 walks, but were just 1 for 9 (.111) with RISP, and left 9 on base. Lucas Duda (3), and Mark Kiger (2) had multi hit games, while Emmanuel Garcia (0 for 3, RBI, BB, 3 Ks, .254), Ike Davis (0 for 4, 2 Ks, .301), Caleb Stewart (0 for 4, 3 Ks, .202), and Jon Malo (0 for 3, .249) took 0-fers.

FSL A+: St. Lucie 12/24/2, Lakeland 11/14/2

For most of this game, the Mets were on cruise control, building themselves a 7-3 lead after 5 innings, and 11-3 after a 4 run 7th, but in horrifying fashion, Nick Waechter and Manuel Olivares combined to allow 8 runs in the top of the 9th, blowing the game for Scott Moviel. Stephen Clyne came in with the bases loaded and 2 down, and proceeded to allow all 3 runs to score, but escaped the inning with a tie. Brahiam Maldonado’s 4 hit in the bottom of the 9th completed the narrow avoidance of disaster. Moviel started, and pitched a meh game, giving up 5 hits and 3 runs (2 earned) with 2 walks and 3 HBP. Clyne picked up the win, his 2nd in the FSL.

The Mets offense exploded today, registering one of the highest hit totals of the season (24), and alwo drawing a pair of walks while going 10 for 18 (.556) with RISP, thought they did leave a small army (15) on base. Every starter except Stefan Welch (0 for 6, run, K, .323) had a multi hit game, four players had 4 hit games.

SAL A: Savannah 3/4/0, Bowling Green 1/6/1 in 5.5 innings

Robert Carson, coming off two horrific starts (4.2 innings, 21.21 era), had a good one today in a rain shortened game, going the distance, giving up just a run on 6 hits, generating 11 groundball outs.

The Gnats had 4 hits and a walk, while going 1 for 6 with RISP, but they put up 3 runs, enough on this day for the win. Raul Reyes (1 for 3, run, 2b, 2 RBI, .248), Josh Satin (1 for 2, 2b, .299), Jose Jimenez (1 for 2, run, .107) and Luis Alen (1 for 2, run, 2b, .152) had the hits for the Gnats, everyone else took 0-fers.

Justin Garber (2), Luis Rivera (2) and Dock Doyle (2) had multi hit games, while Jake Eigsti (0 for 5, K, .091), Sam Honeck (0 for 4, .301), Nick Santomauro (0 for 3, BB, K, .222) and Robbie Shields (0 for 3, run, BB, .153) all took 0-fers.

APPY R: Kingsport 6/9/1, Greeneville 4/9/2

Jhonathan Torres’ 5th Appy start was arguably his “best”, as he gave up a run on 5 hits in 4.1 innings, with 7 Ks. Samuel Taveras blew the save by giving up 3 runs in the 8th, and Travis Babin stranded one of Taveras’ runners, keeping it a 1 run deficit at 4-3, and allowing the Mets time to regroup and rally for 3 in the 9th for the win. The 4 runs Kingsport gave up is the lowest run total against them since July 20th, when they gave up a run in an eventual 4-1 victory.

The Mets had 9 hits and drew 7 walks, while going 3 for 12 with RISP, and leaving 11 on base. RJ Harris (2) and Gered Mochizuki (2) had multi hit games, while Cesar Puello (0 for 5, 3 Ks, .280) and Tyler Howe (0 for 1, run, RBI, 3 BBs, K, .250) took 0-fers.
