Post-game recap: The Mets used a balanced offensive attack and another strong FSL start from Gant to win their 4th straight Tuesday night. The Mets jumped out to a commanding 4-0 lead in the 3rd, sparked by a leadoff double from Glenn. There were 3 RBI hits in the inning: Nimmo singled home Glenn Smith singled home Nimmo, and Rosario singled home De La Cruz (isn’t that beautiful?). An error by the Clearwater SS gave the Mets a scoring opportunity in the 6th, and Maikis came through with a two out RBI single. John Gant was cruising for most of the start, hitting 93 MPH with his fastball at times throughout (per the Clearwater radio), and keeping the Threshers scoreless until the 6th. He’d retire the first two batters in the frame, but then everything started going wrong, with the next four batters picking up hits off of him – single, single, RBI single, RBI double – before he walked the final batter he’d face on the night. Edioglis Villasmil came into a bases loaded situation and induced a groundout to Smith to end the frame. He’d stay in for two more innings and allow only a HBP (and the base runner was erased on a double play). Although there were 4 errors in the game – 3 by Rosario – the Clearwater announcers made a point to spend some time raving about the team’s defense, particularly Smith, who they said has likely saved multiple errors with picks at 1B.

vs. Asheville (29-35) at 7:05 PM
Yesterday: L 4-1 (Savannah)

Post-game recap: Casey Delgado continued an excellent start to his minors’ career in the opener against Asheville, reaching a double-digit strikeout total for the first time, while throwing 78% strikes. The Gnats jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the 3rd when Luis Guillorme doubled down the LF line to bring home JC from 2B. Delgado had retired the first 12 batters of the game (6 via the strikeout), but ran into trouble right away in the 5th, allowing a single to each of the first two batters. After a sac bunt advanced the runners, the tying run would come home on a groundout to 2B. However, the Tourists were not done, as they’d score another run in the frame on two more singles. The only other hits allowed by Delgado came with two outs in the 6th, and a base runner was erased trying to go to 3B on the second hit anyway, so he didn’t face any other real threats. Becerra started the 7th inning rally that tied the game with a leadoff single grounded back up the middle, and he’d score on Tomas Nido’s first RBI hit of the night. A fielding error by JC extended the 8th, so Jose Leger brought in Jimmy Duff for the final out of the frame, which he got on a pop out to 2B. Then Savannah took charge, with Guillorme’s second double of the night (and 4th in the last week) sparking a big rally in the bottom of the 8th. Guillorme would score on a bases loaded walk to Jon Leroux, and then Nido and JC followed with RBI singles for a 5-2 lead. A sac fly to CF from Tyler Moore brought home Leroux for the 4th run of the inning, providing more than enough padding for the BOOM, who worked a 1-2-3 inning. The victory, combined with a Greenville loss, has them tied for first with Greenville as the first-half comes to a close - the first-half division winners clinch a spot in the postseason, so expect some promotions after the SAL ASB.

Nice catch from Wuilmer Becerra





Minors MVP of the Day – Guillorme’s doubles were key for the Gnats victory, as the first one led to a run, and the second one sparked the game-winning rally.

Minors Cy of the Day – Casey Delgado had his best start yet, reaching a double-digit strikeout total in just his fourth minor league start – not bad for a guy who thought he’d spend the summer pitching in an Independent League. Delgado now has a 27.1 K%: 3.1 BB% ratio, with only 19 hits allowed in 24.2 IP for Savannah.
