AAA - Buffalo Bisons (7-10)_______________________________________
LEHIGH VALLEY 7, BUFFALO 5 (Box) As I speculated in yesterday's report, OF Fernando Martinez returned to the active roster yesterday and did so with a bang, hitting his first homer on the season. However in a game full of longballs that wasn't enough as the Bisons 'pen surrendered four runs in the final three innings to hand this one to the Iron Pigs.
- CF Kirk Nieuwenhuis: 1-5, 2B, R, 2 K; Hit streak at 13
- RF Fernando Martinez: 1-1, HR(1);...You completely redeem yourself!
- 1B Nick Evans: 0-3, RBI, K, SF
- LF Lucas Duda: 0-3, BB, 2 K; Batting .161 over his last 10
- SS Ruben Tejada: 2-5, 2 RBI, 2 K, E(7); All these errors are really starting to get weird
- 2B Luis Hernandez: 1-4, K
- LHP Pat Misch: W, 5.2 IP, 3 ER, 5 H, 3 BB, 1 K, 1 HR; Back after clearing waivers for the second time in a month
- RHP Manny Alvarez: L, .2 IP, 2 ER, 1 H, 0 BB, 0 K, WP; This is going from an early season slump to a serious concern as his ERA climbs over 10
- LHP Mike O'Connor: 2 IP, 1 ER, 2 H, 0 BB 3 K, 1 HR
- INJURY UPDATE - The third member of the perpetually injured trio -- along with Havens and FMart -- 3B Zach Lutz was finally placed on the DL yesterday. This was another one that I'd speculated on for a while based on his partial playing time the last couple weeks. And I have to wonder why they continued to pinch hit and spot start a guy with a long history of injury, especially since hamstring issues almost always get worse if played through.
AA - Binghamton Mets (5-8)_____________________________________
- RAINED OUT
- INJURY UPDATE - OF Lorenzo Scott was re-instated from the disabled list yesterday
Hi-A St. Lucie Mets (15-2)________________________________________
ST. LUCIE 5, JUPITER 0 (Box) It seems that anything Harvey can do RHP Jeurys Familia wants to do better so following Harvey's six scoreless with seven K's Familia tossed seven scoreless with eight K's in this 5-0 St. Lucie victory. Five multi-hit efforts from the Mets lineup certainly helped the cause, as did a very nice 6-for-8 with RISP.
- SS Wilmer Flores: 2-4
- RF Cesar Puello: 2-5, 2B, R, 2 K
- CF Matt den Dekker: DNP
- 3B Jefry Marte: 0-4, K
- CF Juan Lagares: 3-4, 2B, R; I've always said he becomes a true prospect if he can actually play center
- LF Pedro Zapata: 2-5, 3 RBI, K, 2 SB(7)
- RHP Jeurys Familia: W, 7 IP, 0 ER, 3 H, 3 BB, 8 K, WP; Somehow this was only his first win
- RHP Eric Beaulac: 1 IP, 0 ER, 3 H, 0 BB, 1 K;Coming off offseason surgery it looks like they'll be using the pride of Troy, NY strictly out of relief for now
Lo-A Savannah Sand Gnats (7-8)__________________________________
LEXINGTON 8, SAVANNAH 7 (Box) Back and forth affair where the Gnats took the lead early, lost it thanks to starter RHP Greg Peavey scuffling in the middle innings, tied it back up in the seventh thanks to an error but ultimately gave it away with errors of their own late.
- 3B Aderlin Rodriguez: 2-5, HR(1), 2 RBI, 2 R, K; Nice to see that, hopefully many more to come
- PH Cory Vaughn: 0-1, K; Pinch Hit
- C Albert Cordero: DNP
- SS Wilfredo Tovar: 1-3, RBI, 2 R, 2 BB; Reached base in 9 of his last 12 pa's
- DH Robbie Shields: 1-5, K
- OF Javier Rodriguez: 0-4, K
- C Blake Forsythe: 1-4, 2B, RBI, E(1), PB
- RHP Greg Peavey: 5 IP, 5 ER, 9 H, 3 BB, 6 K, 1 HR
