9/7 Minor League Report! NIESEN!!!

An article by posted on September 7, 2009

Well, another minor league season has come to an end. Full of ups (the Savannah quartet, Davis, the late surge of Nieuwenhuis/Guzman/Maldonado/Havens) and downs (Kunz, Evans, more Rustich injuries). Those of you reading this on MMO and NYFS – this will be my final post to your respective eyes until I come back for 2010 (maybe, I actually haven’t decided if I want to post off MPH anymore). You can check in on MPH (http://metsprospecthub.blogspot.com) for daily updates of Cyclones playoff games, and for winter league updates, as well as final top prospect lists for 2009 and whatever else I feel like doing.

Eric Beaulac’s final outing of the 2009 was only 1 inning long, but no reason was given for it, so whether it was planned or not…we don’t know yet. John Church concluded his miserable season by taking his 4th loss of the season, giving up 2 runs in 2.1 innings (7th and 9th).

The Gnats hammered out 10 hits and drew 3 walks, while going 4 for 11 (.364) with RISP and leaving 8 on base. Juan Lagares (2), Nick Giarraputo (2), and Kai Gronauer (2) had multi hit games, while Wilmer Flores and Raul Reyes (0 for 4, BB, K, .253) took 0-fers.
