The Usual Suspects
AAA - Buffalo
- CF Jason Pridie: 2-4, RBI, BB, 2 K (.297/.345/.399); solid numbers on the season but the strikeout rate's been a little high
- SS Ruben Tejada: 2-4, R, K (.304/.351/.373)
- 3B Mike Hessman: 1-5, HR, R, 3 RBI, BB, K (.295/.355/.648)
- RF Jesus Feliciano: 3-4, R, RBI (.360/.400/.438); minor league veteran is swinging a hot bat
- SP Dillon Gee: 6.2 IP, 6 ER, 6 H, 3 BB, 2 K, 2 HR (3-1, 4.05 ERA, 41.0 IP, 41 H, 12 BB, 33 K, 4 HR); this makes three rough starts for Gee in his last four
AA - Binghamton
- CF Kirk Nieuwenhuis: 3-5 (.313/.349/.500)
- 1B Nick Evans: 0-3, 2 R, 2 BB, K (.304/.400/.549); Nick Evans scores both of Bingo's runs

- 3B Zach Lutz: 1-2, 2B, 2 BB (.279/.420/.541)
- SP Michael Antonini: 5.2 IP, 5 ER, 6 H, 0 BB, 5 K, 1 HR (3-3, 4.54 ERA, 39.2 IP, 38 H, 6 BB, 21 K, 5 HR); still showed off his control
Hi-A - St. Lucie
- 2B Reese Havens: 1-3, R, BB (.286/.375/.490)
- LF Eric Campbell: 3-4, HR(4), 2 R, 2 RBI, K, CS (.339/.416/.541); reigning FSL Player of the Week
- CF Sean Ratliff: 3-5, 2B, 2 R, RBI, K (.281/.328/.484)
- DH Josh Satin: 2-4, 2B, R, RBI, BB (.333/.435/.491)
- 1B Stefan Welch: 3-5, 2B, R, RBI, K (.323/.370/.492)
- SP Robert Carson: 5.1 IP, ER, 6 H, 2 BB, 2 K, 0 HR (1-3, 5.86 ERA, 27.2 IP, 40 H, 16 BB, 18 K, 3 HR); this makes two solid outings in a row for Carson, and he needs some momentum
- SS Wilmer Flores: 1-4, BB, K (.331/.382/.564)
- LF Juan Lagares: 3-5, 2 RBI, K (.295/.307/.527); he's starting to swing the bat well, but an utter lack of plate discipline will bury him
- DH Nick Santomauro: 2-5, RBI, 2 K (.143/.143/.190); one of those RBI came from a walk-off single
- 3B Jefrey Marte: 0-3, BB (.218/.330/.308)
- RF Cesar Puello: 0-4, K (.241/.323/.284)
- 2B Alonzo Harris: 0-4, 2 K (.252/.272/.378)
- Mark Cohoon: 7 IP, 2 ER, 6 H, 0 BB, 9 K, 1 HR (4-0, 1.76 ERA, 46.0 IP, 38 H, 10 BB, 40 K, 2 HR); I think I smell a Star of the Night
Star of the Night
I'm going with Mark Cohoon, who appears to be having a real "Notice me!" season. Cohoon didn't get the win, and he did give up two earned runs, but the nine strikeouts and no walks do catch the eye. As Rob mentioned the other day, Cohoon was drafted in the 12th round out of a Texas JuCo, and he's since shown excellent command and a good sinker. He doesn't have great velocity, however—the heater sits in the high-80s—nor does he have a great breaking pitch, which is really more of a slurve. But command and groundballs will get you places, and Cohoon's somebody to watch this season. Honorable mentions go to Mike Jacobs, Mike Hessman, Nick Santomauro, and almost the entire B-Mets team.
Goat of the Night: Alonso "The Goat" Harris, for going 0-4 with two more strikeouts. We should just name the prize after him at this point.
- Buffalo scored three in the ninth to avoid losing its third in a row to Louisville. Mike Jacobs brought home the winning run on a sacrifice fly. The Bisons banged out 15 hits, 12 of them singles. The exceptions were a pair of homeruns by Jacobs and Mike Hessman and a double by catcher Tony Maccani.
- I did a double take when looking at the boxscore to yesterday's game between Binghamton and Portland. For the second straight night, the B-Mets lost 7-2 and banged out 10 hits. Michael Antonini just didn't have it, and Josh Stinson wasn't any better in relief.
- St. Lucie scored 10 runs on their way to a 10-5 victory over Brevard County. They had 19 hits, and Robert Carson had a solid outing.
- Savannah beat Rome, 3-2, on a walk-off tenth-inning single by Nick Santomauro.
