The Usual Suspects

AAA - Buffalo

  • LF Fernando Martinez: 0-1 (.244/.300/.378); Left game running out grounder in 1st, no word yet on how serious...this is getting unbelievable
  • SS Ruben Tejada: 2-4, 2B, BB, E(3) (.278/.333/.356)
  • C Josh Thole: 3-4, 3B, 3 RBI, K, BB (.203/.270/.329) Heating up perhaps?

  • 3B Mike Hessman: 1-4, 2B, 2 R (.294/.355/.633)
  • Just had to note the rough day for Indy C Erik Kratz who got on base 4 times and was picked off or caught stealing every time. Ouch.

Star of the Night

Sgdeieq9_medium

How can I not go with Savannah RF Juan Lagares (pictured, thanks to Fred Devyatkin for the great shot) and his 5 hit, 4 RBI night?  Despite the 12-11 extra-inning loss, Lagares raised his AVG by 23 points in the game.  This former shortstop, current outfielder is actually in his 3rd Sally League stint due to some horrible organizational judgment (incredibly, he started his pro career as a Gnat to unsurprisingly awful results).  Like most of the players in Savannah, he has good raw tools but little to no plate discipline.  The position switch (though likely just a temporary deferral for Wilmer) doesn't help his prospect status but his emerging power does (4 HRs this season, 5 total HRs in 3 previous seasons).  Either way, he's just not that great a hitter so he's going to have to learn to take a walk if he ever wants to be considered a serious prospect.  Honorable Mention to Savannah 2B Alonzo Harris on his 4-7 night, heating up in the last few days going 9 for his last 20 (.450).

Goat of the Night: Just like a 5-7 makes you an automatic star, an 0-7 makes you an automatic goat.  Savannah 1B Jeff Flagg took the collar with a brutal 0-7 and 4 K's.  That's the kind of day that even a mother couldn't love.

System Roundup

Very weird Mother's Day around the system:  Buffalo drops the 4-game series with Indianapolis in a 5-4 loss where they strand a season-high 15 men on base and (once again) lose Fernando Martinez to an injury.  Powered by their 7-8-9 hitters, Binghamton took the rubber game of their weekend series with Shawn Bowman and the NH Fisher Cats 5-3.  And in yet another extra-inning game in Savannah, the Gnats dropped a wild one 12-11 in 15 innings; a big offensive day couldn't overcome a rare off day for the Sand Gnat pitching staff (only 1 of the 6 Savannah pitchers did not allow a run).
