Last Night’s Quick Scores Las Vegas got blanked by Iowa, 4-0. Binghamton was shutout by New Britain, 1-0. Savannah slid by Augusta, 3-1. St. Lucie defeated Dunedin, 8-5. Prospect Pipeline Jenrry Mejia made his second rehab start last night in St. Lucie and impressed with eight strikeouts over five innings. We were all curious as to how he would come back in terms of velocity, command, and the break on his pitches. Six of his [...]
Harrisburg 3, Binghamton 1 Mark Cohoon didn’t have his best stuff yet turned in a gritty performance which was good enough to win, but good fortune simply didn’t come his way. Cohoon is a thinking pitcher who maximizes his stuff to out smart opposing hitters. Pitch location is a huge part of the winning Cohoon pitching formula, but the B-Met lefty had difficulty spotting his pitches early in the contest. Even so, Cohoon carried [...]
Binghamton 6, Erie 5 The Binghamton Mets blew a pair of two-run leads, but prevailed on Tuesday night, defeating the Erie SeaWolves, 6-5, at NYSEG Stadium. Danny Muno capped a three-hit game with a go-ahead RBI single in the eighth inning. For the second straight night, the B-Mets plated the eventual game-winning run in their last turn at bat. Blake Forsythe started the rally by blasting a leadoff double to right against reliever Blaine [...]
Binghamton 6, New Hampshire 3 The B-Mets used the support of two home runs, including a three-run shot from Cory Vaughn, to beat the New Hampshire Fisher Cats 6-3 at NYSEG Stadium on Sunday afternoon. Binghamton got the offense started right away against RHP Austin Bibens-Dirkx. With the bases loaded in the bottom of the first, Allan Dykstra hit a sacrifice fly to centerfield, scoring Darrell Ceciliani. Blake Forsythe tallied another run the second as [...]
Colorado Springs 6, Las Vegas 1 Fans who attended Opening Night at Cashman Field Friday were treated to a dominant performance — just not from the home team. Behind seven strikeouts and only one earned run from former second-round pick Tyler Chatwood, the Colorado Springs Sky Sox downed the Las Vegas 51s, 6-1, in the team’s home opener. The 51s’ bats were non-existent for most of the night, including the first four innings. It wasn’t [...]
Adam Rubin of ESPN New York took to Twitter a short while ago and began posting his projections for the Mets Triple-A roster. Included in his Las Vegas 51′s rotation he has: Zack Wheeler, Aaron Laffey, Collin McHugh, Chris Schwinden and Carlos Torres. A month ago I projected the rotation as follows: Zack Wheeler Collin McHugh Mark Cohoon Darin Gorski Aaron Laffey That was what I had once I removed Mejia, who has been shutdown [...]

Last week, I posted about Mets pitching prospect Mark Cohoon who currently heads the starting rotation for the Savannah Sand Gnats. At the time, Cohoon had thrown his second consecutive shutout allowing just three hits and a walk over nine innings while striking out five. I ended that post with the following, Keep an eye on this one, because he is ripe for a promotion to Binghamton and could advance through the minors quickly. At [...]

Starting pitcher Mark Cohoon tossed his second consecutive complete game shutout on Thursday night to beat the Greensboro Grasshoppers 7-0. Cohoon allowed just three hits and a walk over nine innings while striking out five. He currently leads the SAL league with a 1.44 ERA and in [...]
