Albuquerque 8, Las Vegas 5
It was a tough night for Chris Schwinden, who was knocked around for four runs in the first inning, and this left the 51s in a defecit that they would never look back from. Schwinden would be on the hook for five earned runs in his five innings of action. Greg Peavey had no more luck than he did in his two innings of work, as he allowed two earned runs...
Colorado Springs 19, Las Vegas 5
Ouch. The Colorado Spring Sky Sox destroyed the Las Vegas 51s in Monday’s night affair, 19-5.
Chris Schwinden got the start and struggled mightily – although it was not completely his fault. His final line says it all – 3.2 innings pitched with seven hits (two home runs) and four walks allowed. This all added up to eight runs allowed – although...
Fresno Grizzlies 6, Las Vegas 51s 3
The 51s (4-3) dropped a game to the Grizzlies on Wednesday night after Chris Schwinden was rocked for six runs.
Schwinden got the start for Las Vegas and struggled to keep the ball in within the confines of the stadium, as he was taken deep three times over his mere four innings of work. He allowed eight hits overall – but he did manage not...

I like Chris Schwinden and think with patience he could be a back-end starter or AAAA backup for most teams. However if the Mets are going to try and stay relevant in the NL East and in the 2012 season they cannot continue to toss Chris out there every 5th day… at least not with the general quality of our other four starters. So is there a solution externally or internally...
Do you miss Mike Pelfrey yet?
After two less-than stellar outings by Chris Schwinden, the Mets are looking more and more vulnerable and are now amidst a three-game losing streak after being swept in Houston by the Astros.
Of course, Schwinden didn’t pitch in every game and is not at most fault, but his two starts have been a major buzzkill. So far in two starts, Schwinden has only...
Chris Schwinden struggled in yet another start, and the offense couldn’t put anything together in their 8-1 loss to the Houston Astros
The Chris Schwinden experiment had another rough day, with the final outcome being five runs on six hits in four innings, striking out one and walking two. Schwinden allowed two more home runs and has looked overmatched in his two starts...
Chris Schwinden made his 2012 MLB debut this past Friday. With <a href=”http://www.baseball-reference.com/players/p/pelfrmi01.shtml”>Mike Pelfrey being shelved for the year… it’s likely to not be Schwinden’s last start with the big ballclub. The question that Met fans are puzzling is, “Can our team win with this guy on the mound?”
The answer is difficult...
