Darin Gorski gave up four runs over his six innings of work. He struck out four and walked none. This was the fifth straight start in which Gorski (pictured) has given up multiple earned runs.
His last 5 starts: 4.80 ERA, 30 IP, 28 hits, 7 bb, 23 K. That is not exactly getting lit up, but he has become mortal recently.
Cory Mazzoni, the Mets 2nd round pick, pitched an inning of relief for St. Lucie. He allowed one hit and three ground ball outs. Mazzoni had made six appearances (6 IP, 5 h, o er, 2 bb, 10K) for Brooklyn before being moved to St. Lucie.
Wilmer Flores finished the night 3-5 with a double and an RBI. He also sacrificed Puello to second base in the 12th inning, setting the stage for Marte.
The Gnats scored five runs in the first and never looked back, as they defeated Charleston 10-5.
Juan Torres homered twice and drove in five to lead the Sand Gnats 14-hit attack.
