Logan Verrett Twirls Another Gem In B-Mets Victory

Verrett2Rafael Montero has been the name uttered by most when talking about the Binghamton Mets this season, but Logan Verrett has had just a good of a year. In fact, when you stack their numbers up against each other, they are neck and neck in a number of categories (strikeouts, WHIP, ERA).

Verrett twirled another gem tonight, pitching seven complete innings, scattering three hits, two runs (one earned), while striking out nine. Verrett had no walks on the night. At one point in the game, he had struck out five Portland batters in a row, on his way to a no decision.

Get this — over Verrett’s past two starts, he has pitched 13 innings, striking out nineteen batters and walking none. That’s completely ridiculous.

Binghamton would go onto the tie the game in the bottom of the eighth off a Josh Rodriguez home run – and won the game in the bottom of the tenth when Daniel Muno scored on a fielding error.

Saturday’s act by Verrett will be a tough one to follow — good thing Rafael Montero takes the hill for the B-Mets Sunday.

    I love that Verrett has flown under the radar. Guys like him who perform and “sneak” up on everyone tend to become fan favorites. I like fan favorites and have loved seeing him dominate in Binghamton this season.

    It’s guys like Verrett that could be very useful trade chips too. I was thinking the other day that the Mets should talk to the Dodgers about a trade for Scott VanSlyke and/or Joc Pedersen (both OFers). Maybe they could build something around Murphy + Lutz/Valdespin/Verrett/Lara (not all of them, just the type of players).
