Upper Levels Friday: Kirk Nieuwenhuis Makes Ridiculous Catch; Cesar Puello Has a 10-Game Hitting Streak

AAA: @ Sacramento RiverCats (OAK) 3, Las Vegas 51s 0


On a night when the 51s were outhit 12-3, this Kirk Nieuwenhuis catch about the only thing you want to know about.


AA: @ Harrisburg Senators (WAS) 3, Binghamton Mets 1

I hoped for more from Jacob deGrom: 6 IP, 7 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 2 BB, 1 K, bk. LHP Jack Leathersich struck out the side in the 8th.

The B-Mets did not score until the ninth when RF Cesar Puello homered, his first of the year. Puello’s now on a 10-game hitting streak, tied for the longest active in the Eastern League while hitting .333/.368/.583 on his streak. The 22-year old is up to .290/.353/.452 in 18 games this year.
