The RiverCats played some a-ball level defense which led to a five-run Vegas third inning that removed much of the suspense from this game early.
Notable offensive performances:
C Travis d’Arnaud: 1-for-2, 3 BB.
– The only statistical blemish in d’Arnaud’s performance in the last two years in AA and AAA has been his walk rate – under 7% last year in AAA, so it’s especially nice to see him being this patient early.
Game two in AAA is already Chris Schwinden time, and he was very Schwindeny: 5.2 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 0 BB, 1 K.
The B-Mets scored the go-ahead run in the seventh on a dropped popup.
For the second game in a row, Alonzo Harris lined up in CF, with Cory Vaughn in LF and Cesar Puello in RF. Harris was 1-for-4.
LHP Jack Leathersich fanned two and walked two in the ninth for his first AA save. His walk rate has climbed as he’s moved through the minors.
