The Thunder scored six runs in the first two innings against Mark Cohoon, an advantage too great for the B-Mets to overcome. Cohoon's ERA rose to 4.60 after a performance in which he gave up eight runs, six earned on 10 hits in five innings. That's bad, but irrelevant to the Mets' big league future.
Don't worry, there was good, and again it came from the B-Mets' outfield.
RF Cesar Puello was 2-for-4 with a homer, a walk and three RBI, his second straight game with a homerun. The 22-year-old is up to .316/.395/.571 with 13 walks against 42 strikeouts in 48 games. After a slow start, Puello has hit .327/.400/.605 with 21 extra-base hits, including nine homers, in his last 165 plate appearances in 39 games. Fun fact, he's had just four PA all year against pitchers who are younger than he is. That is a monster month from one of the youngest players in the Eastern League. Despite what others say, at this point, I believe he's a big leaguer. The question is what kind of big leaguer.
LF Darrell Ceciliani was 3-for-5 with a double to push his season line to .273/.324/.395 while going 14-for-15 stealing bases. He's picked it up after a slow start and had a .786 OPS since May 1 entering Wednesday. That's nice, but his only chance to be an everyday guy is to be a centerfielder and he's mostly played in left.
