Albuquerque 8, Las Vegas 5 It was a tough night for Chris Schwinden, who was knocked around for four runs in the first inning, and this left the 51s in a defecit that they would never look back from. Schwinden would be on the hook for five earned runs in his five innings of action. Greg Peavey had no more luck than he did in his two innings of work, as he allowed two earned [...]
Las Vegas 6, Round Rock 5 Zach Lutz and Wilmer Flores hit solo home runs Thursday for the Las Vegas 51s, helping them take down visiting Round Rock, 6-5. Lutz, who also homered Wednesday, started the scoring in the second inning with a home run to right-center field. The 51s scored two more runs in the frame, on an RBI single from Juan Centeno and another when Eric Campbell scored on a wild pitch. Flores homered [...]
Sacramento 3, Las Vegas 0 Sometimes…you just have those games where nothing goes right for you on offense – even in the PCL. This was one of those games for Las Vegas, who mustered only three hits as a team, and they were all singles. Jamie Hoffmann, Juan Centeno, and Zach Lutz were the men who provided the singles, yet Sacramento induced double plays after two of those singles to erase most of the 51s’ [...]
Tacoma 5, Las Vegas 3 As has been the case all season for the major league level of the Mets franchise, the Las Vegas 51s bullpen was unable to maintain a slim lead as they went on to fall to the Tacoma Rainiers 5-3. The well traveled Chris Schwinden got the nod for the 51s who were attempting to avoid a four-game sweep from the Rainiers. Schwinden had gotten off to a horrible beginning [...]
Las Vegas 10, Colorado Springs 6 Chris Schwinden held Colorado Springs over the first three innings and the Las Vegas dropped a 10-spot overall on the scoreboard to claim first blood in a four-game series against Colorado Springs. Zach Lutz got the scoring started early with an RBI single that drove home Reese Havens, and Jamie Hoffman followed that with a ringing double to drive home Lutz and Andrew Brown. The 51s would strike again [...]

Colorado Springs 19, Las Vegas 5 Ouch. The Colorado Spring Sky Sox destroyed the Las Vegas 51s in Monday’s night affair, 19-5. Chris Schwinden got the start and struggled mightily – although it was not completely his fault. His final line says it all – 3.2 innings pitched with seven hits (two home runs) and four walks allowed. This all added up to eight runs allowed – although only four of them were earned. Schwinden [...]
Four of the Mets minor league affiliates opened up their seasons last Thursday, and with almost a week of game play in the books, it is a great time to bust out the first Who’s Hot and Who’s Not for the 2013 minor league season. Who’s Hot Josh Satin 1B, Las Vegas – Josh Satin has been scalding hot to begin the AAA season, with a .483 average (14-for-29) and a 1.378 OPS so far. He [...]
Last night, the Bisons beat the Rochester Red Wings in Buffalo by a score of 5-3 behind a solid pitching performance by Chris Schwinden. Schwinden took the mound looking for his eighth Triple-A win this season and looked to improve off his last start, when he allowed four runs in five innings. Last night was definitely an improvement for him. He allowed one run in the second on an RBI-single, giving the Red Wings a [...]
In last night’s pitching duel in Buffalo between the Bisons and Syracuse Chiefs, the Bisons prevailed 1-0. Chris Schwinden got the start for Buffalo, looking to build off his dominant performance on Wednesday night, when he tossed seven innings and allowed only one run on three hits. Schwinden didn’t dominate last night, but he scattered hits very well. He got into trouble on quite a few occasions, including a bases-loaded jam with one out in [...]
