Upper Levels Monday: How About the Top of the Binghamton Batting Order?

AAA: Las Vegas 51s 4, @ Fresno Grizzlies (SF) 3 

d'arnaud Vegas HeadSomething good: C Travis d’Arnaud (pictured): 1-3 with a double and a walk. That’s three doubles and six walks in four games in AAA so far.
Something bad: LHP Darin Gorski’s control. Gorski walked four and threw two wild pitches in five innings of work while throwing 55% of his pitches (43 of 78) for strikes. In his five innings of work, he allowed three runs, two earned, while striking out three. Gorski can succeed with velocity in the upper 80s. He can’t while throwing under 60% of his pitches strikes.
Something good: Josh Satin was 3-for-4 with a double and an RBI. He doubled in a tie game in the ninth and scored the winning run on a Jamie Hoffman single.

 


AA: Binghamton Mets 7, @ Erie Seawolves (DET) 2

The top two hitters in the B-Mets’ order, DH Alonzo Harris and CF Darrell Ceciliani combined on five of the team’s eight hits. Harris was 3-for-5 with a double and a homer. The 24-year old has hit safely in each of his five games with three doubles and a homer for a .364/.391/.636 line. At 1 BB/6 K, that’s obviously unsustainable, but yeah, that’s a good first week. Ceciliani, who is a year and a half younger – he’ll be 23 in June, has three straight two-hit games with two doubles and a triple.

Erik Goeddel was ok over six innings: 8 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 0 BB, 5 K.
Jack Leathersich fanned two in his two innings of work. More importantly, he did not walk a batter and threw 67% of his pitches (16 of 24) for strikes.
