Star of the Night
It's gotta be Nick Evans, the Faceless One on a day with few standouts. If Nick Evans were an actor, he'd be one of those character actors who always does a serviceable job but whose name you never remember. Hell, one of those guys who's lucky if his own director keeps his name in mind over the course of a production. Unfortunately, I have a feeling Evans will be recognized by the Academy long before he's recognized by the Mets' organization with a promotion.
For the Goat, I'll pick Jeurys Familia. He's been quietly disappointing this season, and control's been the primary culprit. He's still getting ground balls at a pretty good pace, and he's striking out a batter per inning, but 21 walks in 34 innings is just too many.
- Buffalo scored three first-inning runs on an RBI groundout by Mike Hessman and a two-run home run by Mike Jacobs en route to a 4-1 victory over Syracuse. The win snapped a three-game losing streak for Buffalo and kept them just a game behind Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Pat Misch and Bobby Parnell dominated, striking out ten Sky Chiefs, walking none.
- Other than a pair of Nick Evans’ solo home runs, the B-Mets couldn’t generate any offense as they lost 7-2 to Bowie. Binghamton had trouble just getting wood on the ball, striking out 13 times over the course of the game. Chris Schwinden looked fine for the first four innings, but gave up three runs in the fifth and gave up two straight hits in the sixth before being taken out of the game.
- St. Lucie overcame a mediocre start by Jeurys Familia to win over Tampa, 8-6. Jordany Valdespin and Brahiam Maldonado each had two hits apiece (one of Maldonado’s was a home run), and Tampa helped them out some with sloppy play—two wild pitches and an error led to three of St. Lucie’s runs.
- There was a 14-inning gamein the Sally yesterday, and guess what? It had nothing to do with the Sand Gnats for a change. The Sand Gnats lost in regulation, 4-2, to Asheville instead. Savannah starter Collin McHugh gave up three runs over six innings of work, and the offense managed just one extra-base hit, a Kai Gronauer double.
