Robles Shaky, St. Lucie Can’t Complete Comeback In 6-5 Loss


Brevard County 6, St. Lucie 5

Hansel Robles did not look like himself out there at all for the St. Lucie Mets on Monday, but he was able to keep his posture and bend, not break over the course of five innings. He walked four batters, allowed four hits, and made an errant throw on a pick-off and he still allowed only two runs.

The Mets put a few runs on the board for Robles while he was on the mound, via an RBI triple by Dustin Lawley in the first and an Aderlin Rodriguez RBI single in the third.

Dustin Lawley and Travis Taijeron both went deep in the bottom of the fifth to give St. Lucie a temporary 4-2 lead. It all got shot to hell in the top of the seventh, however, where Chasen Bradford allowed four runs off five hits in the frame, with four of them going for extra bases.

St. Lucie did bang out twelve hits overall, though, including a last-ditch few in the ninth that led to a run.
