Las Vegas 3, Round Rock 2
Collin McHugh took the mound tonight and pitched a heck of a game. He continued his tremendous start to the season tossing seven scoreless innings. The righty threw 90 pitches (59 strikes), allowed just five hits, struck out five, and left the game with a 1-0 lead. McHugh came into the game leading the 51s with a 3.57 ERA, but after tonight’s masterful performance, he lowered his ERA to 2.98.
McHugh was in line for the win when he left the game heading into the eighth inning, but the combination of Gonzalez Germen and Justin Hampson squandered the lead allowing the tying run to score. Greg Burke took the ball in the top of the ninth up 2-1, but was unable to nail down the save. He allowed a double followed by an RBI single, and saw his ERA balloon to 5.19.
The Vegas offense was held to just three hits on the night, but was highlighted by Josh Satin hitting his fifth home run of the season, and an RBI single by Juan Centeno. Eric Campbell had a very patient ...

Ever since Lucas Duda burst into our consciousness in 2010, nobody has been satisfied with his plate approach. Too many strikeouts and not enough walks, I frequently wrote. He gives away too many at-bats. He tries to pull too much and doesn’t use the entire field.
All valid in the early Duda critique.
DUDA: Has the right approach (AP).
Now, unbelievably, he’s become too selective...
Among the highs and lows to already come out of the first month of this season, the continued improvement of Daniel Murphy has certainly been one of the brighter spots to this point so far.
Playing out of his natural position, Murphy has slowly made the proper adjustments on both sides of the diamond. After being jostled all over both the infield and outfield, Murphy has finally...
Once upon a time, not so long ago, the Mets had a top ten prospect named Zack Wheeler who was deemed the heir apparent to their oft-maligned rotation. It had to be Wheeler, who would assume the role of staff ace. Especially with the controversial trade of surprising knuckleballer, RA Dickey. It seemed unanimous that Wheeler, his high nineties fastball, and array of formidable...

Las Vegas had their game suspended due to rain.
Binghamton dropped to Trenton, 5-0.
St. Lucie topped Daytona, 6-2.
Savannah dropped two games to Hickory, 4-3 and 5-3.
Welcome back T.J. Rivera. We haven’t mentioned Rivera in the Minors Report for a couple of weeks and he was tired of being ignored, so he went out and got five...
Matt Harvey, who pitches for the Mets, was very dialed in on Tuesday night as his Mets took on the Chicago White Sox. The 24-year-old flamethrower was so dialed in that he didn’t even realize that his nose was bleeding. The bloody nose definitely didn’t bother Harvey as he pitched a perfect first inning and had a strikeout.

The Mets held the White Sox to one hit over 10 innings last night. It was the second 10-inning one-hitter in team history. Terry Leach hurled a 10-inning one hitter on October 1, 1982 at Philadelphia in a game the Mets won, 1-0. Luis Aguayo had a fifth-inning triple in that game. The last 10-inning one-hitter in the majors was May 28, 2011 when the...
Round Rock 9, Las Vegas 5
I am not a mean-spirited guy when it comes to baseball, honestly, but why is Carlos Torres on our AAA team? He was lit up again on Wednesday night for a grand total of nine earned runs over 4+ innings and it was just a really rough performance. He allowed five of those runs in the top of the first alone, capped off by a three-run homer by Jim Adduci....

The CEO for the Omaha Storm Chasers and lifelong Mets fan was chosen to throw out the ceremonial first pitch last night before the New York Mets contest with the Chicago White Sox. It is probably a safe bet that Gary Green will not be invited back for any pre-game festivities after Green sailed the pitch over the head of John Buck smashing the TV camera protective glass behind home...
I'll be completely honest with you. I was at the Rangers game tonight. I don't have quite as good a record as Matt Harvey does at Ranger games, but it was a very workmanlike performance by me as the Rangers tied up their series against the Caps 4-3.
(And by workmanlike performance, I mean ... I did nothing to help.)
And I really had the best of intentions to come...
It’s pretty rare that you hype a pitchers duel and it actually happens. It did yesterday. A few dopey Hurdle decisions and maybe the outcome is different. What’s done is done though. Did you hear that Pitt is going to host Penn State in basketball next season? This is awesome news for a formerly huge…
