Mets Lower Minors: Extra Innings And Errors Doom Kingsport, Offensive Explosion For Cyclones
St. Lucie Rained Out
The St. Lucie Mets were scheduled to face the Fort Myers Miracle on Sunday afternoon, but the game was rained out. The Miracle and the Mets are not scheduled to play each other again, so the game was officially cancelled. The Mets will take on the Palm Beach Cardinals on Tuesday evening at 6:30 in St.Lucie. Chase Huchingson (7-7, 4.47) will toe the rubber for the Mets, while the Cardinals will throw out Kyle Hald (3-2, 3.56).
Just a note, in the last lower MiLB post, KyMets asked what happened to our A-Rod, Aderlin Rodriguez. To be honest, I have not seen a thing about it, but he has not played since August 8th where he drilled his sixth HR in St. Lucie, and his 22nd overall on the year.
The Savannah Sand Gnats had a scheduled day off on Sunday. They return to action on Monday evening against the Lexington Legends with the starting pitcher yet to be announced on their official website.
Brooklyn 10, Vermont 5
It was quite an offensive display for Brooklyn on Sunday, led by Dimas Ponce’s first HR in a calendar year.
Dimas Ponce – 3 for 5, HR, 3 R, 2 RBI
Alexander Sanchez – 3 for 4, 3 RBI, R
Kevin Plawecki – 3 for 4, 2 R, RBI
Rainy Lara – 5 IP: 7 H, 4 ER, 6 K, BB, W( 7 – 1 )
Player Of The Game: Dimas Ponce, for providing a HR for the first time since August 14th, 2011.
Special Notes: The Brooklyn Cyclones have now won seven straight home games. With just 22 games remaining in the regular season, the Cyclones have a six-game lead in the Wild Card and are now one game back of the Hudson Valley Renegades for a share of first place in the McNamara Division. This is just the second time this year that Rainy Lara has given up more than three earned runs, as his ERA moves up slightly to a respectable 3.02.
Danville 6, Kingsport 5
A 13-inning affair ended in a loss for Kingsport even after Yilman’s work from Akeel Morris, as six errors led to three unearned runs.
Gavin Cecchini – 3 for 7, 2 RBI
Jorge Rivero – 2 for 6, RBI
Miller Diaz – 6 IP, 5 R (2 ER), 3 BB, 6 K
Akeel Morris – 5 IP, 2 H, 2 BB, 0 ER, 9 K
Anthony Chavez/Branden Kaupe: 2 errors each.
Player Of The Game: Akeel Morris for an impressive performance in relief.
