Rowan Wick helps cap State College comeback, Casey Turgeon leads incredible Johnson City offensive showing

The Spikes once again came from behind to pick up their 5th win in a row, sweeping their series with the Jamestown Jammers. Rowan Wick picked up just one hit, but it was a single that scored a big insurance run in the 8th inning. Wick has now reached base in his last 14 games and collected a hit in 12 of those. During that streak, he’s hitting .450/.585/.900 with 5 HR, 17 RBI,...

MMO Game Recap: Mets 6, Rangers 5

In one of their longest nine inning games in franchise history, the New York Mets (38-48) beat the Texas Rangers (37-49) by a score of 6-5 tonight at Citi Field. From the start, the game looked like a nightmare in the making, as Jonathon Niese was knocked out of the game after less than an inning of work by a line drive after giving up a leadoff home run to Shin-Soo Choo. X-Rays...

Rowan Wick ties record but the low minors go 0-3

Did you know Rowan Wick is having a pretty fantastic start to the year? In the 6th inning of State College’s game tonight, Wick homered to center field to tie the Spikes’ single-season home run record with his 10th of the year. The Canadian right fielder has 59 games left in State College’s season to break David Washington’s record. I don’t think he lasts those other 59...

An early look at the top Mets trade candidates

As June comes to a close and the games start to matter, there is a question that lurks in the back of every front office: are we buyers or sellers? For some teams this question is easily answered. A team such as the Milwaukee Brewers or the Oakland A’s are already decided as buyers while the Chicago Cubs and San Diego Padres have probably picked the path of sellers. The Mets are...
