Deolis Guerra report

Deolis Guerra, the Mets' fifth-best prospect according to Baseball America, started the game and picked up where he left off last season when he thrived at low-Class A Hagerstown (Md.).

Guerra pitched five stellar innings to secure the win, allowing two hits and striking out five on about 65 pitches. Guerra, who turns 18 this month, dominated the Devil Rays with his changeup. Three of his five strikeouts came on three pitches, and he didn't walk a batter.

"His being 17 years old kind of opens your eyes," manager Frank Cacciatore said. "He does that a lot, he's not going to be around here much longer."
