Mets prospect LHP Anthony Kay tossed a masterpiece for the Double-A Binghamton Rumble Ponies in Game 1 of the doubleheader on Tuesday night.
Kay threw a shutout with three hits with eight strikeouts and one walk over seven innings of work. He also threw 87 pitches, 60 of which went for strikes.
Kay kept the dominance going and had his longest outing of the season on May 7, allowing one run in 7.0 innings while walking one and striking out four. He has been utterly brilliant this season, with a 1.47 ERA and 0.93 WHIP with 37 strikeouts in 36.2 innings -- while allowing just 19 hits.
The 24-year-old Kay has moved up the ladder along with David Peterson. And like Peterson, he profiles as a mid-rotation starter.
Kay could potentially help the Mets later this season, and was recently profiled by SNY contributor Joe DeMayo here.
