PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (April 13, 2019) - Jeremy Vasquez broke out of an early season slump to lead the St. Lucie Mets offense in an 11-1 romping of the Florida Fire Frogs on Saturday at First Data Field.

Mets starter Tommy Wilson picked up his first win. He did not allow an earned run over 5.2 innings. He did not walk a batter and struck out six.

Relievers Carlos Hernandez and Ryley Gilliam combined to blank the Fire Frogs over the final 3.1 innings. Neither reliever has allowed a run this season.

Todd Frazier played in his eighth rehab game. He went 1 for 3 with a RBI while playing third base for five innings.

Catcher Mitch Ghelfi went 2 for 4 and scored twice.

Quinn Brodey, Cody Bohanek and Tiberi each hit a RBI sac fly.
