Upper Minors Wednesday: Juan Lagares Leads B-Mets to W

AA: Binghamton Mets 6, @ Reading Phillies 2

RF/CF Juan Lagares was 3-for-5 with a double. Lagares is hitting .300/.343/.444 after the AA All-Star Break in an Eastern League that hits .260/.330/.392 overall. Note that most of Lagares’ distance from League average is driven by batting average. He needs to hit for a high average to have value.

The Phillies slowed down 2B Wilmer Flores, who was 0-for-5 with two strikeouts.

RHP Gonzalez Germen (8-11, 4.42) was solid: 7.2 IP, 7 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 6 K. Germen now has allowed 121 hits in 114 innings in double-A this year.

 


The Bisons were off Wednesday and finish up with five games on the road: two in Rochester and then three in Lehigh Valley over the weekend.
