R: Kingsport Mets (23-15) @ Elizabethton Twins (19-18) Wednesday 7:00 ET – LHP Yoan Gonzalez (2-3, 4.03) vs. RHP Yorman Landa (3-1, 1.20)
Yoan Gonzalez shutout Bristol for 7 IP in his last start, allowing 3 hits, walking 4 and striking out 5. Walks have been an issue as he has 11 in 23 IP.
Yorman Landa took a tough loss to the K-Mets six days ago. He did walk 4 and allow 4 hits over 5 IP, but he struck out five and limited the damage to 2 runs (1 ER) but it was still enough to end up with the L.
Chris Schwinden allowed his 20th homer of the year in his last start, is letting PCL batters hit .312 overall, and has struck out 68 to 36 walks over 109 IP. After limiting walks in May and June he is up to 10 BB and 13 K in July.
In a crazy DSL game yesterday the DSL Mets2 squad scored a walk off win after blowing a 7 run lead. Hidden in the craziness is another nice outing from Jose Medina a 16 year old lefty, listed at 6'2", who has pitched to a 0.41 ERA over 10 starts, striking out 40 and allowing just 5 walks and 30 hits over 44 IP this year. Will be interesting to see how they handle him stateside next year.
