Herrera Gets Gamer, St. Lucie Wins In 11

by Ed Tsunoda on May 20, 2014

Dilson Herrera, Brandon Nimmo, and TJ Rivera continue to be a force at the top of the St. Lucie lineup, going a combined 7-16 with 2 2Bs last night good for 2 runs scored and 3 RBI, including Herrera’s game winner in the 11th inning.


The Mets took three out of four games against Lakeland and moved 0.5 games ahead of the Fort Myers Miracle for first place in the Florida State League South Division.

Herrera went 3 for 6 in the game. He now has nine multi hit games in his last 10 contests. His winning double came off of Tyler Clark with no outs. Maikis De La Cruz, who led off the frame with a single, scored easily to break the tie.

Wheeler struck out the side in the 10th and struck out two more in the 11th to earn the win. Three Mets pitchers – starter Steven Matz, Seth Lugo and Wheeler – combined for 19 strikeouts, a season high for the St. Lucie staff.
