Mets Minors: Smith Hits First Professional Homer, Muno Wallops Two Homers In Seven RBI Game

Miami Marlins v New York Mets

Welcome to MMN Storylines, where you get a quick wrap-up of last night’s top performers..

  • Our first-round pick in the ’13 Draft, Dominic Smith, hit his first professional home run last night. It was part of a three hit game, where he went 3-for-5 with 3 RBIs. Smith and Wuilmer Becerra both had nice games, with Becerra going 2-for-4 with two doubles.
  • Daniel Muno probably went ahead and had the best game for all Mets Minor League players last night, as he burst on the scene with seven RBIs — his entire team’s offense — and propelled them to victory. Muno slammed a grand slam to tie the game in Binghamton, and he added a three-run shot later on for good measure. Muno has been swinging the hot stick lately, with a .344 average over his last ten games and three long balls.
  • Pedro Perez of the Kingsport Roster also had a two home-run game with seven RBIs yesterday — how unlikely! Speaking of Kingsport, they dropped a 20-run bomb on the scoreboard last night with a ton of players having multi-hit and RBI games. Champ Stuarthad the nicest game outside of Perez, with two hits and four RBIs.
  • Your injury updates: Ruben Tejada went 0-for-5 with a strike out in Las Vegas, Pedro Feliciano tossed a scoreless frame for Binghamton, and Hansel Robles returned to St. Lucie with a so-so start yesterday.
  • James Roche had the best night in defeat for Brooklyn, going 1-for-3 with a double, run scored, and stolen base.
