Monday in A-Ball: Taijeron on a Tear

Lakeland Flying Tigers (DET) 2, @ St. Lucie Mets 1

Taijeron St. Lucie HeadNoah Syndergaard was just fine: 5 IP, 6 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 0 BB, 5 K. Adam Rubin had him hitting 94 on the stadium gun. Want something nice? In his last 19.1 innings, Thor has walked just two batters, while fanning 21. Yum.

At the plate, RF Travis Taijeron just keeps getting hotter. Named the FSL Player of the Week earlier in the day, he celebrated by going 3-for-4 with a homer to extend his hitting streak to eight straight games. He’s homered four times in his last three games and five times in his last five while hitting .471/.500/1.029 in his last 10 to push his season line to .313/.405/.582 in 53 games. At 24, he’s old for the FSL, and he’s repeating the circuit, but this is still awfully impressive.

 

The Gants, who start a three-game series at home on Tuesday, were off.
