Mets Lower Minors: Kingsport Gives Me A Reason To Be Happy
Charlotte 9, St. Lucie 8
The St. Lucie bullpen just could not hold a lead in this game as they allowed five runs in the last two innings.
Alonzo Harris – 1 for 4, HR, 2 RBI, 3 R
Richard Lucas – 3 for 4, 2B, 2 RBI, R
Danny Muno – 2 for 4, RBI, BB
Jacob Degrom – 3 IP: 2 H, ER, K
Three errors led to two unearned runs on the evening, including one in the ninth.
Player Of The Game: Adrian Rosario for being the best pitcher on the day: 1.2 perfect innings while totaling three strikeouts. He lowered his ERA to 1.11.
Hickory 12, Savannah 5
Savannah got blown out on Saturday in a 12-5 loss to the Hickory Crawdads.
Camden Maron – 1 for 1, 2B, 2 R, 3 BB
Brian Harrison – 1 for 4, HR, 3 RBI
Greg Pron – 1 for 4, HR, RBI
Yohan Almonte – 3.1 IP, 5 H (3 HR), 4 BB, 6 ER
Player Of The Game: Tip of the hat to Harrison for his three-run shot. Tough day for Almonte, who was making his first start in Savannah after being in St. Lucie all season. Keep your head up, man.
Vermont 4, Brooklyn 1
There just was not enough offense to back a decent outing by Luis Mateo,
Julio Concepcion – 0 for 3, RBI
Juan Carlos Gamboa – 2 for 4, R
Luis Mateo – 5 IP: 5 H, 2 ER, BB, 4 K
Paul Sewald – 2 IP, 3 H, 2 ER, 3 K (First two earned runs this season. He now holds a ridiculous 0.79 ERA in 22.2 IP.)
Player Of The Game: Mateo, for providing a pretty good start as he continues to improve.
Special Notes: I hope David Wynn does not feel like I am not giving him credit – because he allowed no earned runs in his inning pitched and dropped his ERA to 1.86. 1.86 and 0.79 are pretty wicked ERAs, guys.
Kingsport 8, Elizabethton 4
A week from my last look at Kingsport – Akeel Morris still rocks and Maikis De La Cruz drove in 3 in a Kingsport victory.
Maikis De La Cruz – 2 for 5, 3 RBI
Yeixon Ruiz – 3 for 4, 2B, 2 R, 2 RBI
Akeel Morris – 3 IP, H, BB, 0 ER, 5 K
Jeyckol De Leon/Branden Kaupe/Alex Machillanada: Each of them had a hit and an RBI.
Player Of The Game: A split between Akeel Morris and Maikis De La Cruz.
Kingsport Notes: Steven Matz was placed on the 7-day DL on August 17th. However, it is nothing to be worried about. Our own Petey Pete got to ask Matz himself right here.
