Last Night’s Quick Scores Las Vegas defeated Omaha, 7-3. Binghamton took down Portland, 6-3. St. Lucie was edged by Bradenton, 5-4. Savannah was one-hit by Augusta, 11-0. Prospect Pipeline Jenrry Mejia made his first “real” rehab start in St. Lucie last night where he lasted three innings. He threw only 61 pitches, and threw 41 of them for strikes, which was a good sign. He allowed five hits and three walks, which led to two [...]
Augusta 11, Savannah 0 To sum this one up quickly, the Sand Gnats allowed 11 runs to cross the plate for Augusta, but only six of them were earned. Savannah only mustered one hit and three walks as a team on offense against that offensive onslaught, so it was a really tough game all around. Robert Gsellman made the start and lasted four-and-two-thirds innings, and was on the hook for the first seven runs. Only [...]
Mets Minors Report 5/15: Wheeler Update, Bowman/Ynoa/Verrett All Effective, De La Cruz On A Hot Streak
Last Night’s Quick Scores Las Vegas dropped a game to Albuquerque, 8-5. Binghamton took down Akron, 7-3. St. Lucie one-hit Brevard County, 4-0. Savannah lost via walk-off, 4-3. Prospect Pipeline Zack Wheeler‘s MRI is not worrying me as much as it should. Mitch detailed some concerns with the inverted W delivery that he employs yesterday and how it can weaken a shoulder – but I think I’m just hoping for the best here. Wheeler has [...]
Charleston 3, Savannah 2 The Savannah Sand Gnats lost their third straight game, falling to the Charleston RiverDogs 3-2 on Tuesday night at Riley Park. Kelvin De Leon’s sacrifice fly in the bottom of the ninth inning brought home Peter O’Brien with the winning run. O’Brien led off the inning with a single and went to third on Yeicok Calderon’s single. Savannah reliever Beck Wheeler intentionally walked Reymond Nunez to load the bases and set up [...]
Charleston 5, Savannah 3 It was an up and down night for Luis Cessa, who managed to battle his way through six innings while allowing only three earned runs. He did serve up two home runs, with one being a two-run homer, that accounted for the runs charged to him. Overall, he allowed five hits and four walks, so he was dancing out of trouble all night. Cessa did not factor into the decision, [...]

Both teams had 7 hits and Savannah won 3-2. The Sand Gnats scored 2 runs in the fourth inning. Leading off the inning, Eudy Piña singled and moved to third on a double by Kevin [...]
Ike Davis frustrates me. Unlike Lucas Duda who was drafted much later in the draft, expectations have always been really high for the first-round first baseman and for the most part I’ve wanted more from him than what he’s shown thus far. I gave Davis a pass during last season’s first half, what with the Valley Fever and that whole ankle debacle, but what’s his excuse this time? How long can we afford to continue [...]
Rome 3, Savannah 2 Game two of the four game series between the Savannah Sand Gnats and the Rome Braves was played Friday evening in front of 2,535 fans at Historic Grayson Stadium. Rome scored in the 8th inning to break a 2-2 tie and win the game by the final score of 3-2. Rome scored a run in the first inning when ss Jose Peraza singled, stole second and scored on a single by [...]
The draft is slowly creeping up on us, and is now less than a month away. It’s do or die time for scouts, and for some draft hopefuls, coming down to the wire to show that they deserve a shot to call baseball their profession. On June 6, everyone is expecting the Houston Astros to take Stanford Pitcher, Mark Appel, with the first pick in the draft. After that, it’s really anyone’s guess. The Mets [...]
