Wednesday in A-Ball: St. Lucie Survives the Rain; A New High for Aderlin Rodriguez

A+: Jupiter Hammerheads (MIA) 4, @ St. Lucie Mets 1
@ St. Lucie Mets 7, Jupiter Hammerheads 4 (7 innings)

Game one was the resumption of Tuesday’s suspended game. The Hammerheads scored the go-ahead run off Jeurys Familia, making his second rehab appearance with St. Lucie, in the seventh inning.

In game two, the Mets scored four in the first and never led by fewer than three runs the rest of the way.

After going 4-for-6 in the two games, “3B” Aderlin Rodriguez is up to .269/.295/.477 in 49 games this season. This is the highest his OBP has been after any single game in 2013.  The 21-year-old has hit .350/.380/.600 in 25 games in May. He also committed an error in game two, his ninth of the year, and his second in three games. The bat is real, but I really think it’ll have to play at first.

SS Matt Reynolds was 0-for-3 in game two with a pair of errors. After a quick start, he’s down to .249/.333/.362 in his 48 contests.

LHP Alex Panteliodis (2-1, 2.03) was ok: 5 IP, 4 H, 3 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 1 K.


A: @ Greenville Drive (BOS) 5, Savannah Sand Gnats 1 

Robert Gsellman: 6 IP, 10 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 1 BB, 2 K, 1 HR. I wrote about the 19-year-old after his last start in Savannah, where he worked nearly exclusively off his fastball and changeup.

The combination of CF Brandon Nimmo, DH Jayce Boyd and C Kevin Plawecki were 1-for-10 with two walks (both by Nimmo) and six strikeouts.

Before this game, the Gnats placed Steven Matz, who left his Tuesday start with a blister problem, on the seven-day DL.
