Rodriguez And Lawley Homer, Robles Rocks In St. Lucie Win
St. Lucie 13, Charlotte 3
Twas a good night for those following St. Lucie as the Met offense down south backed up some strong pitching from Hansel Robles for a commanding 13-3 victory.
Hansel Robles continued a string of solid work so far in St. Lucie with a good start on Tuesday night, going six innings while allowing three runs off four hits and three walks. He struck out three batters and allowed a two-run home run in the sixth inning. His only run was allowed on a sacrifice fly in the fourth, right after he allowed a runner to advance due to a wild pitch. All in all, it was a good night for Robles – even if he met the bare minimum for a quality start.
The real story of the game, of course, was the St. Lucie offense. Cam Maron did the early damage with a two-run triple in the third inning, but the best was yet to come. A five-run fourth inning was sparked with a lead-off home run by Aderlin Rodriguez, and followed by RBIs from the likes of Cam Maron (again), Matt Reynolds, TJ Rivera, and Brian Harrison. Rivera walked home a run, Maron and Reynolds singled, and Harrison lifted a sacrifice fly.
The sixth inning was even huger for the Mets, which was capped off by a Dustin Lawley grand slam. St. Lucie banged out thirteen hits in this game overall, so it was a great night. Every starter picked up at least one hit.
Cam Maron: 3-for-5, 1 3B, 3 RBI, 1 R
Aderlin Rodriguez: 2-for-5, 1 HR, 2 RBI, 2 R
Dustin Lawley: 1-for-5, 1 HR, 4 RBI, 1 R
Gilbert Gomez: 1-for-3, 2 R, 2 BB
Hansel Robles: 6.0 IP, 4 H, 1 HR, 2 BB, 3 ER, 3 K
Estarlin Morel: 2.0 IP, 2 H, 1 K, 0 ER
Wanel Mesa: 1.0 IP, 0 ER
