I made the lovely drive from Savannah, GA to Johnson City, TN to see the Kingsport Mets. (This is not a joke. Driving through the Southern Appalachian mountains is gorgeous.) I saw the KMets score 16 runs in the final four innings on their way to a season-high 20 tallies and a 20-4 win ?that finished in the rain with the Johnson City catcher on the mound mopping up in relief.
3B Pedro Perez had the game of his (brief) professional life, going 3-for-5 with a double and two three-run homers and seven RBI. The second homer was funny - he got a fastball in and yanked it down the leftfield line. The 18-year-old started a few steps out of the box, wasn't sure it would stay fair, stopped, and then waited for it to straighten out and stay fair. Perez kept it fair, because he said, "I stayed close, and [used] quick hands." (We will have video of this on the blog as well.)
