The Usual Suspects
AAA - Buffalo (33-31)
- CF Fernando Martinez: 3-3, R, 2B, BB (.280/.333/.452); nice to see him have a second straight good game

- 1B Mike Jacobs: 0-4 (.265/.302/.503)

AA - Binghamton (30-33)
- CF Kirk Nieuwenhuis: DNP (.282/.322/.468); left yesterday's game after an apparent shoulder injury making a catch, severity still not known
- 2B Reese Havens: DNP (.338/.400/.662); looks like he really re-aggravated the oblique strain from earlier this year

- 3B Eric Campbell: 3-4, R, 2B, HR, 2 RBI (.336/.389/.481); knocked in both of Bingo’s runs

- RP Brad Holt: 1.1 IP, 6 ER, 4 H, 3 BB, 0 K, 0 HR (1-5, 10.20 ERA, 30.0 IP, 43 H, 23 BB, 25 K, 2 HR); yuck
Star of the Night
This is an easy one. Eric Campbell went 3-for-4 with a double and a home run and was responsible for both of Binghamton’s runs in an embarrassing loss to Trenton. While Campbell had been hitting well in Binghamton, it had largely been fueled by his batting average; both his isolated power and his isolated discipline numbers had fallen off since being promoted from St. Lucie. And what had made him such an intriguing prospect down there had been his strong secondary skills combined with some great contact numbers. So it’s very nice to see him add those two extra-base hits. I think what I like the best is that he’s only struck out 25 times across both levels this year. No matter what happens the rest of the way, he’s already jumped significantly up the organization’s top prospects list
Goat of the Night:
Dear Brad Holt,
I know you don’t have a great breaking ball. But that hasn’t been your problem this year, or at least not the problem that’s harmed you the most. Throw some god-damned strikes already.
Your adoring fan,
- Former Met Nelson Figueroa shut down the Bisons, who lost 10-1 to Lehigh Valley on Sunday, thanks to another poor outing from Dillon Gee. Buffalo did manage nine hits, including three by Fernando Martinez, two more by Josh Thole, and a pair of doubles by Justin Turner. The recently promoted Marshall Hubbard also knocked his first hit as a Bison.
- John Maine made his first rehab start and threw four scoreless innings, but Brad Holt took over and promptly allowed six runs over an inning and a third. Clint Everts gave up four more, and Trenton won, 10-2. Eric Campbell’s outstanding performance should not be ignored: the young third baseman had a double and a home run.
- St. Lucie had the day off.
- Savannah also had the day off.
