Colorado Springs 11, Las Vegas 6
In a game where the two teams combined for thirty hits, the Las Vegas 51s dropped this one to the Colorado Springs Sky Sox 11-6.
It was trouble out of the gate for Vegas in this one, as designated starter Darin Gorski was only able to last two innings in this late-night affair. Gorski struggled from the start, and faced all nine hitters in the Colorado Springs lineup in the first inning, where he allowed three runs. He allowed back-to-back RBI doubles in the second inning, and although he got out of the jam, he was lifted for a pinch-hitter in the bottom half of the inning. Gonzalez German was brought on, and he pitched the next three frames while allowing two runs in the top of the fourth.
Robert Carson allowed an inherited runner from Dylan Owen to score in the seventh on a wild pitch, but had an overall line of an inning and two-thirds pitched without allowing a hit and striking out three. Justin Hampson struggled in his inning, allowing five hits...

What a masterful performance by Mets right hander Matt Harvey today as the Mets won their second straight game against the Minnesota Twins by the score of 4-2 at frigid Target Field.
Harvey thrilled Mets fans as he took a no-hitter into the seventh inning until Twins first baseman Justin Morneau ruined it when he cranked a towering shot off Harvey that just barely hit the foul...

Fans who attended Opening Night at Cashman Field Friday were treated to a dominant performance — just not from the home team.
Behind seven strikeouts and only one earned run from former second-round pick Tyler Chatwood, the Colorado Springs Sky Sox downed the Las Vegas 51s, 6-1, in the team’s home opener.
The 51s’ bats were non-existent for most of the night, including the...
New Hampshire 6, Binghamton 1
The B-Met pitching staff issued nine walks on the way to a 6-1 loss to the New Hampshire Fisher Cats Saturday afternoon at NYSEG Stadium.
Starting pitcher Erik Goeddel walked four hitters in 4.1 innings before being removed from the game. Manager Pedro Lopez then looked to the bullpen, but they fared no better.
After allowing the inherited runner to...
Matt Harvey almost made history on Saturday for the Mets, coming within seven outs of pitching the franchise’s second no-hitter. Although he didn’t keep the Twins hitless, he did keep them behind the Mets all day en route to his third consecutive victory to start the season.
Given the weather forecasts for Minneapolis today and Denver during the week, the Mets might have to...
The New York Mets were hoping that Johan Santana and Shaun Marcum would be occupying spots in the starting rotation for the majority of the 2013 season. Unfortunately, here we are in the middle of April, and neither one has thrown a regular season pitch. Santana is lost for the year after re-tearing his shoulder capsule, while Marcum has been on the disabled list since March 22nd...
The other day I noticed my kid was reading this book that I recognized from when I was around his age. Jonathan Livingston Seagull, by Richard Bach. The short novel about the transcendent ascension of a seagull who refused to be confined by the boundaries of his own defining limitations. He flew higher, faster, until he became a kind of zen master of flight and was even able to teleport...
I was one to caution Met fans not to get too excited about Matt Harvey only because he hasn’t face the rest of the National League east yet. I am still saying please be cautious but, I am going to say this… Matt Harvey reminds me of Tom Seaver and I do not say this lightly. I am a huge Tom Seaver fan from back when Seaver was in his prime. I cried the night he was traded to the...
As snowflakes swirled over Target Field, John Buck drove another ball deep into the air to join them.
Buck and the New York Mets sure didn't let the wintry Minnesota night slow down their swings.
Buck kept up his powerful start with a grand slam, his fourth home run in the last four games, and the Mets beat the Twins 16-5 on Friday.
''You're almost starting to...
It's to to figure out which is more amazing — the New York Mets 16-5 thumping of the Minnesota Twins or that the game was even played at all.
Shortly before the teams took the field for batting practice Friday, an exhausted head groundskeeper, Larry DiVito, looked around at an empty and snow-free Target Field and gave himself a pat on his back. A little more than 24 hours...
The opponent and city may change, but the weather continues to be an additional hurdle for the New York Mets.
Troy Tulowitzki and the Colorado Rockies have been challenging enough.
After rain and snow postponed their latest scheduled contest, the Mets will need to contend with the elements again as they try to solve Tulowitzki and end a four-game skid to the Rockies on Monday night...
