In some ways, he could be called the forgotten Met prospect. With all the excitement of a young cadre of minor league pitchers, the yet unfulfilled promise of catching phenom Travis d’Arnaud, and the dizzying AA offensive numbers Cesar Puello is racking up in Binghamton, it is easy to get immersed into their storylines and bypass some others. All the while, Eric Campbell is putting together a decent season under the radar in Las Vegas as the forgotten man. Eric [...]
Last Night’s Quick Scores Las Vegas shut down Fresno, 8-0. Binghamton had the day off. St. Lucie dropped to Lakeland, 2-1. Savannah had the day off. Prospect Pipeline Travis d’Arnaud was seen yesterday at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York for follow up on his fractured toe. Travis was cleared to begin weight bearing rehabilitation, but will remain in a boot for the next week. After only two rehab appearances, Mets prospect Luis Mateo has [...]
Las Vegas 7, Omaha 3 Behind a staunch performance from the bullpen, the Las Vegas 51s snapped a three-game losing streak Friday night in Omaha, Neb. The 51s defeated the Storm Chasers 7-3 to even their four-game series at one win apiece. The game was tied 3-3 after five innings, when Las Vegas manager Wally Backman pulled starter Matt Fox and began to use his relievers. Omaha would only get one base runner the rest [...]
Omaha 5, Las Vegas 4 D.J. Mitchell struggled and allowed ten of of Omaha’s 11 hits over his five innings of work, which led to four earned runs crossing the plate. At the time of his departure from the ballgame, Las Vegas had scored three runs. Eric Campbell was responsible for all of them with an RBI single in the second and a two-run single in the third. Gonzalez Germen came on to start the [...]
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 4, Albuquerque 3 Last night I was at Cashman Field to witness the ace of the Las Vegas 51s and prized prospect Zack Wheeler on the mound. In many ways Wheeler lived up to the hype and pitched as expected. However, what I did NOT expect was the competitive spirit he displayed. His poise is more expected of a crafty veteran than a kid three weeks shy of turning 23. Wheeler pitched well, keeping Albuquerque [...]
Round Rock 12, Las Vegas 6 The Las Vegas 51s surrendered 20 hits Friday in a 12-6 loss to visiting Round Rock at Cashman Field in the final game of a four-game Pacific Coast League series.D.J.

Eric Campbell went 3-for-4 with a home run and three RBIs for Las Vegas, which also received two hits from Zach Lutz and Kirk Nieuwenhuis. [...]
Las Vegas 3, Round Rock 2 Collin McHugh took the mound tonight and pitched a heck of a game. He continued his tremendous start to the season tossing seven scoreless innings. The righty threw 90 pitches (59 strikes), allowed just five hits, struck out five, and left the game with a 1-0 lead. McHugh came into the game leading the 51s with a 3.57 ERA, but after tonight’s masterful performance, he lowered his ERA to 2.98. McHugh was [...]
Sacramento 11, Las Vegas 7 The Las Vegas 51s were defeated Saturday 11-7 at the Sacramento RiverCats, losing for the second straight day to open a four-game Pacific Coast League series. D.J. Mitchell took the mound for Las Vegas on Saturday night and was plagued by a pair of errors in the first frame, which led to seven runs crossing the plate against him in the first inning, but only three were earned. He settled [...]
