The Highlights:

Pitchers

Noah Syndergaard – 5 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 3 BB, 8 SO, HR, HBP, 96 Pitches (55 Strikes), 4 FO

Batters

Matt Reynolds – 2-4
Allan Dykstra – 1-3, BB, SO

Recap:


            Noah Syndergaard was a little shaky Sunday afternoon in Omaha, but battled to keep Las Vegas close over his five innings of work. Unfortunately, the 51s offense could not get anything going for him, leaving Thor to be the “tough-luck” loser. Syndergaard struggled with efficiency (85 pitches through 4 IP) and command of his curveball (only 31% strikes on the curve), but was mostly able to limit hard contact for the 51s. Omaha clean-up hitter Carlos Peguera provided most of the Storm Chasers offense when hit a couple of long homeruns to CF in consecutive at bats, one off of Thor in the 4th and the second off of Jack Leathersich in the 6th.

MiLB.com Boxscore


The Highlights:

Pitchers

Steven Matz – 7 IP, 6 H, R, 2 BB, 4 SO, 101 Pitches (58 Strikes), 7 GO: 5 FO
Hansel Robles (4.73 ERA) – 1 IP, H, 1 GO: 2 FO
Hoby Milner – 9 IP, 3 H, 5 SO, 99 Pitches (71 Strikes) 9 GO: 8 FO

Batters

T.J. Rivera – 1-3, SB (1)
Juan Centeno – 1-3
Kyle Johnson – 1-3, 2B (23)

Recap:


            Dueling southpaws stole the show Sunday afternoon in baseball town, Pa., and it was Reading starter Hoby Milner who came out on top, needing just 99 pitches to shutout the Binghamton Mets. Steven Matz overcame poor command to look very strong over 7 IP, but one run allowed was enough to earn him the loss on this day. Albert Cartwright, who went 3-3 against Matz Sunday, led off the 4th with well-stroked double to CF. After Matz retired the next two batters, Jake Fox singled to RF to drive Cartwright in, although he’d be thrown out trying to advance to 2B after the run scored. And that was the game.

Mets Series in Review: vs. Cubs



Dates: August 15-18
Results:
 W 3-2, W 7-3, L 2-1, L 4-1
Current Record: 59-67, 12.5 GB in NL East, 7.5 GB in Wild Card

Recaps:


MVMet: The Mets starting pitchers were great this series – at least something was! Well, winning the first two games was pretty great too.
LVMet: The Mets offense averaged three runs on four hits per game, which is TERRIBLE! No player had more than two hits, so how can I choose just one?

Recap:


            The Binghamton Mets offense was clicking all game Monday night, helping the Mets roll to an 11-4 victory over the Erie Sea Wolves in game one of a three-game set. Mets starter Greg Peavey continued to be too good for AA over his 5.1 strong innings, although he has generally been good for six innings with Binghamton. He ran into a little trouble in the 4th and was bailed out by Chase Huchingson in the 6th, but, otherwise, Peavey was in typical AA form. Sea Wolves starter Jeff Ferrell was knocked out during a rough 3rd inning, forcing the Erie bullpen into extended duty early in this series. Jayce Boyd, T.J. Rivera, and Travis Taijeron combined for ten of the fifteen Mets hits, and four of the five Mets extra base hits. Chase would bridge the gap from Peavey to the 9th inning, when Dario Alvarez came in and worked around two-out single for a scoreless frame, picking up two extra base hits along the way. The Mets will look to clinch a series win Tuesday night behind Angel Cuan.

Recap:


            A combination of poor pitching and defense in the 1st inning put the Las Vegas 51s in a hole too big to climb out of Monday night as they dropped their third straight to Omaha. After winning three out of four games in Iowa to start this road trip, the 51s now must win tomorrow night behind Cory Mazzoni to salvage a .500 road trip. Lannan was hit hard from the start, allowing eight runs off ten hits in just four innings of work. The 51s bullpen fared much better, although Erik Goeddel allowed a run to score in his inning of work, putting the 51s behind 9-2 at the time. The 51s offense had a hit in every inning except the 6th and 8th, so they had chances to score, but you can’t expect a team to score on every opportunity. Five 51s players managed multi-hit performances, but the team had only two doubles among their twelve hits, making the offense work station-to-station all night.
