Last Night’s Quick Scores Las Vegas dropped to Omaha 5-4. Binghamton had the night off. St. Lucie lost to Brevard County in the bottom of the ninth, 3-2. Savannah topped Augusta in eleven innings, 6-0. Prospect Pipeline Rainy Lara — the name Rainy is fitting considering the fact that opposing teams are probably hoping for rain every time this kid steps on the mound. Last night’s stat line is utterly ridiculous, as he pitched eight complete [...]
Savannah 6, Augusta 0 If you like a good pitcher’s duel, you might have found yourself in heaven if you could have watched this Savannah game. Rainy Lara was absolutely incredible in his performance over eight innings where he allowed no runs, two hits, and a walk. He struck out nine in perhaps the best pitching performance of his career. Currently, his ERA stands at 1.17, his opposing average is .192, and his BB:K ratio [...]
Last Night’s Quick Scores Las Vegas defeated Albuquerque, 4-3. Binghamton was rained out. St. Lucie was also rained out. Savannah took down Rome, 3-2. Prospect Pipeline Well…he did it again. I’ve been hesistant with Zack Wheeler since the beginning of the 2013 season, but I can hold nothing else against the young man. He is pitching like an ace – with veteran like poise on the mound and in a hitter’s league, no less. I had [...]
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 [...]
Savannah 9, Hickory 2 Kevin Plawecki is an absolute monster and Rainy Lara pitched an excellent game. Should I go on? Lara started the game for the Sand Gnats with the organizational ERA lead – and spoiler alert, he kept that title by the end of the game. He allowed merely an unearned run over seven spectacular innings, where he allowed just four hits and struck out six. Eudy Pina botched a play to allow [...]
Last Night’s Quick Scores Las Vegas got rocked by Tacoma, 8-2. Binghamton defeated Akron, 7-2. St. Lucie blew out Bradenton, 13-5. Savannah edged out West Virginia, 1-0. Prospect Pipeline I strongly urge you to click the above link leading to the Binghamton recap, which features a wonderful analysis of Logan Verrett‘s most recent start on Saturday afternoon. I remember writing on Verrett months ago and noting that he came into our system at 21 with [...]
Savannah 1, West Virginia 0 Rainy Lara and Bret Mitchell combined on a six-hit shutout to propel the Gnats to their fifth straight win, a 1-0 shutout of the West Virginia Power in front of 2,969 fans at Historic Grayson Stadium Saturday night. The shutout was third of the season for the Gnats (14-8). In his fourth start, Lara became the first Gnats’ starter to work into the eighth inning in 2013. He threw first-pitch [...]
Mike Newman of ROTOscouting posted an article on FanGraphs regarding some of the Mets’ exciting Dominican arms who he says ranks among the top-15 prospects in the organization. I mentioned one of them in our Minor League report today, Gabriel Ynoa, about whom he writes: Against Savannah, Ynoa sat 91-92 with his fastball, touching 93 mph. With sink and a sling shot delivery, Ynoa is deceptive and his length gives the impression of the ball exploding on [...]
Savannah 6, Lakewood 4 Jayce Boyd had a great offensive night and the Sand Gnats received a questionable call from the umpires down in Lakewood en route to a 6-4 victory on Saturday night. It was Rainy Lara who got the start for Savannah in this one, and he was shaky at best, allowing 11 hits and a walk. This resulted in four earned runs and it could have actually been worse, because the [...]
Rome 2, Savannah 1 On Sunday afternoon at Historic Grayson Stadium in Savannah, the Rome Braves edged the Sand Gnats 2-1 to gain a split of the two game set. Savannah (5-5) scored their lone run in the bottom of the third inning on an RBI fielders choice by right-fielder Eudy Pina. Sand Gnats hurler Rainy Lara was perfect through the first four innings while striking out five – but he allowed a lead-off [...]
Savannah Sand Gnats, 4 Rome Braves 0 It was raining goose eggs in Rome all day Sunday as Sand Gnats righty Rainy Lara baffled Braves hitters with six innings of two-hit scoreless baseball, and the Gnats defeated the Rome Braves 4-0 to split the four game set to open the season. Rainy Lara (1-0) handled the first six innings with absolute expertise as he allowed just two hits and a walk, while striking out six. He was relieved [...]
