AA - Binghamton (54-58)

  • CF Sean Ratliff: 3-4 (.332/.360/.582); back home in center with Captain Kirk gone

  • 3B Zach Lutz: DNP (.297/.417/.645)

Hi-A - St. Lucie (57-53)

  • CF Pedro Zapata: 3-6, 3 K (.280/.308/.360); three hits are nice, but Zapata is striking out a ton since his promotion

SS-A Brooklyn (31-15)

  • CF Darrell Ceciliani: 3-5, 3 R, 2B, HR, 4 RBI, BB, K (.382/.434/.559); pretty good day, I guess

  • SS Rylan Sandoval: 3-5, 2 R, 2 K (.337/.409/.564)
  • C Blake Forsythe: 3-4, 2 R, 2B, 2 RBI, BB, K (.295/.373/.455)

RK Kingsport (19-23)

  • LF-CF ZeErika McQueen: 1-5, 2 R, 3 K (.273/.320/.358)
  • CF Chase Greene: 0-2, 2 K (.274/.318/.387); left the game early, no idea why
  • 3B Aderlin Rodriguez: 0-1 (.287/.333/.530); ditto
  • C Nelfi Zapata: 1-4, 2 RBI (.250/.311/.323)
  • RF Javier Rodriguez: DNP (.325/.360/.523); sat after being struck on the hand with a pitch the other day

  • LF Julio Concepcion: 1-4, R, K (.300/.344/.517)

  • REHAB ALERT: 3B Eric Campbell: 2-4, R, K
  • If you didn't hear, 2009 overslot draftee LHP Zack Dotson was suspended this week for PED usage.  Shame, the kid has great stuff but apparently he's a dope.

Star of the Night

The Star is Darrell Ceciliani. Ceciliani went 3-for-5 with a double, a homer, three runs scored, and four RBI. Not a bad day’s work. For the most part this season, his offensive successes have been tied up in his batting average, so it is nice to see him knock his first ball out of the park.

I’m going with Josh Satin as the Goat. Satin went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts. The whiffs have been a problem (he’s striking out just under 20% of the time) and are an obstacle preventing him from becoming a legitimately good prospect.

System Roundup

  • Let it not be said that Buffalo does anything half-way. Down 4-2 in the bottom of the eighth inning, Buffalo took the lead and then some. They scored nine runs, giving them an 11-4 victory over Columbus. Justin Turner led off the inning with a solo shot and then doubled home three more when he came around to bat again later on in the inning. Boxscore
  • Binghamton lost to Harrisburg 7-1. The B-Mets found themselves unable to score after a leadoff homer from Jose Coronado, who continues to thrive—three more hits on Thursday—out of the leadoff spot. And as the offense struggled, so did Chris Schwinden, who allowed five runs before being removed with no out in the fifth. Boxscore
  • St. Lucie lost one of those games that just saps everything you have right out of you. Down 8-3 to Tampa in the ninth inning, St. Lucie scored five runs—including three on Joey August’s game-tying homer—to send the affair into extra innings. But in the eleventh Brant Rustich was wild and allowed Jose Pirela to score the winning run on a Melky Mesa single to give Tampa the game, 9-8. Boxscore
  • Savannah found themselves on the wrong side of a pitcher’s duel, losing 1-0 to Rome. The game’s lone run scored when pitcher Collin McHugh threw a ball away while fielding a bunt. Cesar Puello had three of Savannah’s seven hits, while R.J. Harris had two. Boxscore
  • The offense was out in Brooklyn yet again, as the Cyclones rolled to a 14-4 victory over Batavia. Every starting player had a hit, and four had three. The final tally was 20 hits, seven for extra bases. Cory Vaughn hit his 11th homer, Darrell Ceciliani his first. Boxscore
  • Kingsport had a similar day to Buffalo. Tied at four in the bottom of the eighth, the bats jumped awake, scoring eight runs to put Kingsport ahead over Dansville, 12-4. Three Mets hit homers yesterday: Charles Shinojosa, Luke Stewart, and Albert Cordero. Boxscore
  • The GCL Mets scored four runs in the fifth and two in the eighth to win their game against the GCL Marlins, 6-1. Juan Urbina pitched well into the sixth inning, and Matt den Dekker and Eric Campbell each had two hits. Boxscore
