Robert Carson was good: 6 IP, 5 hits, 2 er, 0 bb, 4 k (7GB/5FO)
The bullpen was not good: 3 IP, 8 hits, 7 runs, 3 er, bb, 4 k.
Not much offensively for the B-Mets, which has been the story of their season. Brahiam Maldonado hit his team leading sixth home run of the season, a two-run shot in the fifth. Maldonado is now hitting .150/.188/.413 for the season.
Matt Harvey bounced back from his worst outing of the season, with a dominant performance. Harvey pitched 6 1/3 innings, allowing just three batters to reach base safely, one on a hit and two via the walk. He also punched out nine Bradenton hitters. It shows a lot for Harvey to dominate the team tonight, that hit him hard in his last start.
Errors by Rylan Sandoval and Pedro Zapata allowed Bradenton to score five unearned runs in the top of the seventh inning. Rhiner Cruz was the recipient of the loss, as he gave up the five unearned runs.
Jefry Marte continues to impress, going 1-2, with a triple and two walks. For the season Marte is hitting .326/.409/.568 on the season. Equally impressive is that Marte has walked 12 times already this year, and is looking more like a forgotten prospect who has found it. Lets hope this continues.
A: Savannah Sand Gnats (10-15)- OFF
