Wedneday 4:00 ET –
RHP Anthony DeSclafani (4-1, 1.32) vs. RHP Noah Syndergaard (2-2, 2.86)
Wednesday 6:30 ET – RHP Jake Esch (0-2, 1.50) vs. RHP Jenrry Mejia (0-0, 4.50)
The resumption of yesterdays game in being delayed by even more rain. If they do get underway Alex Panteliodis (1-1, 2.49) would be a likely candidate to pick up the extra innings available today. He hasn’t pitched since the 21st, a day before Noah. The first game will be played to its regular completion, while the second game will be a 7 inning contest. Weather permitting.
Jenrry Mejia worked 5 inning in his last rehab start, striking out 8 and walking 1, while allowing 3 runs on 5 hits.
Jake Esch and Jared Rogers (1-2, 2.68) have often worked in tandem this year, but with two games its likely they each start one. Seven days ago Esch gave up 5 runs in 2 IP and Rogers followed with 5 IP of 2 run relief. Five days earlier Rogers started and Esch relieved.
Elite prospect Jameson Taillon has struck out 63 and walked 22 in 55.2 IP this year. He’s put up a 4.50 ERA in 4 road starts.
Mark Cohoon struck out 7 while allowing 1 run on 6 hits and a walk over 8 IP. As a starter he’s struck out 28 and walked 6 over 26.2 IP and put up a 2.36 ERA. Josh Rodriguez extended his hitting streak to 14 games last night. Binghamton has won four straight and reached 30 win before June 1st for the first time since 2004 (that squad highlighted by a young third baseman from Virginia) and have moved into first place with last nights win.
Robert Gsellman allowed 1 run on 3 hits and 1 walk while striking out 3 over 7 IP. What might be most impressive about this start is that six days earlier against the same Augusta team Gsellman had allowed 9 hits over 4.2 IP and was able to make an adjustment.
In his last start Justin Haley limited Charleston to 1 run on 5 hits and 2 walks while striking out a season high 8. He was walked 34 and struck out 43 in 36.2 IP on the year.
Zeke Spruill faced the 51s back on May 2nd, allowing 1 unearned run on 4 hits and 4 walks over 5.2 IP in his PCL debut. He has walked 11 and struck out 12 in 5 starts with the Aces.
Carlos Torres picked up a win against Reno on May 1st giving up 3 runs (1 ER) on 7 hits and 2 walks, with 4 K over 5.1 IP. In his last start he went 7 IP for the first time this year, allowing 2 runs (1 ER) on 7 hits and no walks while striking out a season high 10, and getting 9 ground outs.
