Top Mets pitching prospect Zack Wheeler followed up a solid start last week with an even better one today as the Las Vegas 51s beat the Sacramento River Cats 6-2. Wheeler tossed six scoreless innings and allowed just three hits and a walk while striking out four. What stood out was that he tossed 90 pitches (55 strikes, 36 balls) and left the game looking he had plenty left in the tank. He picks up his second win of the season and while he hand command issues through the first two innings (15 strikes, 11 balls, walk) he got into a groove and dominated the rest of the way. According to Toby Hyde of MetsMinorLeagueBlog.com, “he rediscovered the breaking ball that had been missing during his first five starts this year, and his velocity was also outstanding, hitting the mid to upper 90′s with his fastball.” That’s two good starts in a row for Wheeler who made an adjustment to his delivery before his last start and so far things have turned around since a rocky start to the season.
