Last Night’s Quick Scores

Prospect Pipeline

  • Noah Syndergaard tossed five innings, allowing two runs (1 earned) on five hits, walking two and struck out eight. Even though Thor threw a dominating game, he did not earn the victory. Miguel Socolovich gave up three runs (2 earned) in the top of the 7th inning, to temporarily put the Bees in the lead.
  • Matt Reynolds launched a three-run shot over the left field fence in the 7th inning to put the 51s in the lead for good. Reynolds hit his first Triple A home run on Saturday, making it two straight days.
  • T.J. Rivera singled on Sunday to extend his current hit streak to five games.  In his last ten games, Rivera is batting .395 (15 for 38), with two doubles and seven RBI’s.
  • Rainy Lara (5-4, 4.98) gave up seven runs on 11 hits, giving up two home runs and only struck out one batter.  Lara has not won a decision since June 30, which dates back five starts including Sunday’s loss. In his last ten starts, he is 3-3, with a 5.68 ERA.
  • Jeremy Hefner pitches three innings, allowing three runs on three hits, walking four and striking out four. This was Hefner’s first start with St. Lucie on his comeback trail from Tommy John surgery. He pitched in three games with the Gulf Coast Mets prior to Sunday’s start.
  • Wilfredo Tovar started for St. Lucie in the doubleheader, is first two games with St. Lucie since coming off the DL, and a combined 1 for 7, with an RBI.
  •  Dario Alvarez suffered his first blown save and loss on the same night as he gave up three earned runs in the eighth inning.
  • Michael Conforto goes 2 for 4 to extend his current hit streak to nine games. What a start to his pro career, as he has at least one hit in each of his first nine games.
  • Amed Rosario went 2 for 6 and extended his current hitting streak to ten games. He is batting .383, (18 for 47), with 10 runs scored and eight RBI’s in that span.
  • Cyclone outfielder Michael Bernal went 4 for 4 with Four RBI’s in the victory.
  • Wuilmer Becerra finished 2 for 5, and has three straight multi-hit games. In his last ten games, Becerra is batting .366 (14 for 41), with two home runs.

Prospect Injury Update

  • Kevin Plawecki still has not returned to the 51s and hasn’t played since July 17th. Plawecki has been sidelined with a mild case of vertigo. According to Robert Brender, he caught in the bullpen yesterday for the 51s, a sign that he could be close to returning.
