Colorado Springs (34-29) 6, Las Vegas (27-39) 2 Box Score
- Kevin Kaczmarski RF: 1-4, K, .375/.415/.500
- Phillip Evans SS: 1-3, BB, .253/.337/.525
- Zach Borenstein LF: 1-4, 2 RBI, 2 K, .240/.336/.455
- Cody Asche 3B: 1-2, 2 BB, .230/.307/.511
The 51s collected eight hits, all of which were singles, and each starting position player had exactly one each. The only runs came on a two-out, two-run single by Borenstein in the sixth. They scattered the eight hits around along with three walks, but could never get much of a rally together.
- RHP Cody Martin (L, 0-2, 5.40 ERA): 5.0 IP, 5 H, 3 R, 4 BB, 4 K
- RHP Kevin McGowan (2-1, 4.93 ERA): 1.0 IP, 3 H, 3 R, 2 BB, K
- RHP Joshua Torres (0-0, 8.10 ERA): 1.0 IP, 0 H, 0 R, BB, 3 K
- LHP Matt Purke (1-0, 4.94 ERA): 1.0 IP, H, 0 R, 0 BB, K
Martin’s control was not great, as he walked four and threw only six more strikes than balls, but he got through five decent innings with only three runs allowed. McGowan struggled, allowing five baserunners and three runs. Torres had a much better second Triple-A outing, striking out the side. Purke continues to have better and better outings, and has a 1.59 ERA so far in 5.2 June innings. However, he still is allowing too many baserunners, including both hits and walks.
Altoona 7 (32-28), Binghamton 2 (34-30) BOX SCORE
- Peter Alonso 1B: 3-4, 2 2B, RBI (.315/.442/.574)
- Tim Tebow LF: 1-4, 2B (.241/.330/.371)
- John Mora CF: 2-4 (.240/.316/.372)
- Jeff McNeil 2B: 0-2, 2 BB (.329/.405/.633)
The Rumble Ponies did not have much go their way on Wednesday. Only three players recorded a hit, only four reached base in general. Jeff McNeil raised his OBP with a pair of walks. Peter Alonso took his first step towards breaking out of his slump with a three-hit performance. His average went back up to .315, and his OPS stayed over 1.000. Tim Tebow doubled in the eighth, but it was too little too late. John Mora also singled twice. As a team, they went 0-for-5 with RISP and stranded six on the bases.
- RHP Scott Copeland: 5 IP, 6 R, 10 H, BB, 4 K (4-1, 4.32)
- RHP Corey Taylor: 2 IP, H, 2 K ( 1-1, 3.12)
- RHP David Roseboom: 2 IP, 3 H, R, BB, 2 K ( 1-0, 1.93)
Scott Copeland struggled straight out of the gate on Wednesday. He allowed four in the first on a grand-slam. He settled in for the next three innings, but never was able to really be effective. Corey Taylor continues to be impressive in AA, with two more shutout innings. David Roseboom allowed a rare run when he gave up a solo home run in the eighth.
Daytona 6 (35-28), St. Lucie 1 (26-36) Box Score
- Wilmer Flores 3B: 2-3, RBI (.500/.500/.667)
- Ian Strom RF: 1-3 (.227/.298/.313)
- Dan Rizzie C: 1-3, RBI (.233/.283/.272)
Flores continued his rehab assignment on Wednesday with a two for three performance. He singled in a run in the sixth, the Mets’ only of the game. He also played seven innings at first base. Strom and Rizzie accounted for the only other hits on the game. Top Prospect Andres Giminez took an 0-for last night, although he did walk.
- RHP Josh Prevost: 4.2 IP, 12 H, 6 R, 4 ER, BB, 5 K ( 5-2, 3.84)
- RHP Stephen Nogosek: 1.1 IP, 2 BB, K (1-1, 2.84)
- RHP Matt Pobereyko: 1.2 IP, H, K (2-1, 2.22)
- RHP Joseph Zanghi: 1.1 IP, 2 H, K (2-0, 1.27)
Josh Prevost did himself no favors by letting 13 batters reach base and letting four runs score, the other two being unearned and assisted by errrors. The bullpen turned in more than four clean innings, but it was too late at that point. Zanghi, Pobereyko, and Nogosek all continued strong campaigns.
