Gavin Cecchini Records First MLB Hit and RBI


In Saturday’s 10-8 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies, Gavin Cecchini recorded his first major league hit and RBI.

Cecchini entered into the game at shortstop for Asdrubal Cabrera as the Mets trailed by a score of 10-0 at the time. The Mets prized prospect had a successful night at the plate, going 2-for-3 with two doubles and two RBI.

“You’re always trying to win regardless of what the score is,” Cecchini said. “When we were put in, the score was 10-0. We’re not going out there and just going through the motions. We’re trying to put together good at bats and get back into the game.”

It was a night to remember for Cecchini, getting his first taste of success at the big league level. The 22-year-old showed his ability to hit the ball with some authority Sunday night, smashing both doubles.

Cecchini is now 2-for-5 since making his MLB debut on September 11. Before being promoted to the Mets, Cecchini hit to a .325/.390/.448 slash line with eight homers, 27 doubles and 55 RBI while also helping to produce 71 runs for AAA Las Vegas.
