Star of the Night

I gave it to him yesterday, but there’s no way I can avoid making Zach Lutz the star again, not with three hits, eight total bases, and a walk. Back-to-back stars? Sure doesn’t look rusty after returning from that injury.

The Goat is Bret Mitchell in Kingsport for allowing seven runs to have his third consecutive poor outing. And right as I had been feeling good about him.

System Roundup

  • Lucas Duda hit yet another home run and every starter in the lineup except Ruben Tejada and JR House had hits, but it wasn’t enough as Buffalo lost to Columbus, 6-4. Dillon Gee was just too hittable, allowing ten hits and four runs over five innings of work, and Jose de la Torre sank the Bisons for good by allowing two runs in the seventh. Boxscore
  • For the second straight night, the Binghamton offense really showed up. Unfortunately, so did Portland’s, as the Sea Dogs took the game, 11-9. Zach Lutz had an outstanding day once again, going 3-for-4 with two doubles and a homer, and Sean Ratliff also contributed a pinch-hit three-run homer. But Mark Cohoon continued to struggle since his promotion to Double-A, allowing seven runs in less than three innings. Boxscore
  • Seton Hall product Danl Merklinger did a good job shutting down the St. Lucie Mets, who lost to Brevard County, 5-1. Merklinger threw six innings of one-run ball, striking out 13. Brad Holt, on the other hand, was not very good despite only allowing two runs in five-plus innings of work. He was wild once again, walking five hitters. Boxscore
  • Savannah had the night off. Boxscore
  • AJ Pinera and Wes Wrenn combined to throw eight innings of two-run ball, while the lineup produced five doubles and a triple to give Brooklyn the 7-2 win over Aberdeen. Catcher Juan Centeno had three hits, and Darrell Ceciliani provided the triple. Boxscore
  • Kingsport lost to Princeton, 11-2. Starter Brett Mitchell gave up seven runs, and though the Mets had ten hits, only two batters crossed the plate. On the bright side, outfielder Charles Hinojosa hit his first home run of the season. Boxscore
  • Luke Montz and Donnie Tabb had two hits each for the GCL Mets in a 3-1 victory over the GCL Cardinals. But most importantly, Jenrry Mejia made his first rehab start, allowing one run over three innings on four hits and a walk while striking out three.  Akeel Morris relieved him and was even better allowing no runs over four innings of 1-hit ball.  Boxscore
