Last night on the farm, the K-Mets came oh so close to winning, but fell just a little short. Let’s find out what happened:
Greeneville 7, Kingsport 3
Robert Whalen threw 6 scoreless innings while the K-Mets took a 2-0 lead. But in the 7th inning, Greeneville scored 2 runs charged to Whalen. Closer Ricardo Jacquez entered the game to get the K-Mets through the 7th and 8th inning. Jacquez started the 9th inning and brought the K-Mets within 1 strike of winning the game and series before allowing a bloop double to score the tying run and keep the game alive. Robert Coles entered the game after that and the floodgates opened, as Greeneville ended up scoring 5 runs in the top of the 9th to put the game out of reach. The K-Mets had just 5 hits and couldn’t take advantage of 4 Greeneville errors. It was a tough loss for the K-Mets, but a rather successful season for a team that had plenty of talented prospects that will be worth keeping an eye on in the years to come.
Tri-City 6, Brooklyn 3
John Gant got pounded in his final outing of the season, giving up 6 runs in 2 plus innings. The bullpen closed the door but the damage was already done. Matt Oberste was 2 for 4 with a homer. The Cyclones finish their season tonight.
Also on deck tonight, Las Vegas, Binghamton, and Savannah all begin their playoff series.
