RHP Akeel Morris had a sweet line to earn the win in relief: 3.2 iP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 7 K.
We discussed this a little in the comment section the other day, but while this Brooklyn pitching staff looks less exciting than say, last year's, the lineup should be more productive.
SS Amed Rosario had two of the K-Mets' six hits in a 2-for-4 evening. He also committed one of the K-Mets' four errors. He's 2-for-9 after two games.
Rob Whalen was undone by his defense: 5.1 IP, 4 H, 4 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 6 K
R (GCL): @ GCL Nationals 4, GCL Mets 3
Hansel Robles made a rehab start from a back strain. It was ok: 4.2 IP, 4 H, 4 R, 3 ER, 1 BB, 3 K.
RF Wuilmer Becerra was 3-for-4 with an RBI. He played just 11 games in the GCL last year before his season ended with injury. I wonder if he rolls through that league if the 18-year-old can earn a promotion to Kingsport or whether the difference really matters that much.
