AAA - Buffalo Bisons (29-42)_______________________________________
BUFFALO 16, NORFOLK 2 (Box)
Nice to see this kind of bounceback from the Herd. Spring training legends Nick Evans and Luis Hernandez led the way for the Bison offense, belting 10 RBI's between them. Pat Misch threw all 7 innings in the shortened game for Buffalo, and was efficient if not overwhelming in the effort.
- 1B Nick Evans: 2-4, 2B, BB, 5 RBI, R
- 3B Zach Lutz: 1-3, 2 BB, K, 3 R
- 2B Luis Hernandez: 3-5, 2B, 5 RBI, R
- LHP Pat Misch: 7 IP, 4 H, 2 ER, 2 BB, 2 K
AA - Binghamton Mets (23-44)_____________________________________
BINGHAMTON 8, TRENTON 10 (Box)
Binghamton continues to be confusing to me. One night they have a great pitching performance with no offense, the next they get the bats out and the pitcher gets lit up. Last night was the latter, with Erik Turgeon getting beat up on the mound. The defense wasn't much help either, as 6 of his 7 runs were unearned.
- 2B Reese Havens: 1-4, BB, 2K, RBI
- SS Jordany Valdespin: 1-4, 2 R, 2 RBI
- LF Eric Campbell: 2-5, RBI
- IF Josh Satin: 3-5, 2B, K, 2 RBI, R
- 1B Allan Dykstra: 1-4, BB, K, R
- RHP Tobi Stoner: 6 IP, 4 H, 3 ER, 6 K, BB, HR
- LHP Eric Niesen: 1 IP, H, 2 BB, K
Lo-A Savannah Sand Gnats (39-30)__________________________________
SAVANNAH 1, GREENVILLE 12 (Box)
Darrel Ceciliani and Aderlin Rodriguez were pretty solid last night, but that's about it for bright spots from Savannah. The pitching wasn't very good and there were not many other batters pulling their weight, that type of performance often leads to an 11 run defeat.
- 3B Aderlin Rodriguez: 2-4, 2B, 2 K
- CF Darrell Ceciliani: 2-4, 2 K
- RF Cory Vaughn: 0-4, 3 K
- 2B Wilfredo Tovar: 0-4
- LHP Angel Cuan: 3 IP, 5 H, 4 ER, 3 K, HR
- RHP Gonzalez Germen: 2 IP, 3 H, 4 ER, 2 BB, K, HR
Short Season A - Brooklyn Cyclones (1-1)_______________________________________
BROOKLYN 5, STATEN ISLAND 3 (Box)
It must have been a treat for many of the Brooklyn hitter last night. They were playing their second game of the season (and in many cases career) and got to face off against Phil Hughes making a rehab start. As you would expect, Hughes struck out quite a few batters in his 4.1 innings last night. All in all, it was a very nice showing for Brooklyn.
Star of the Night
I was tempted to give it to Eric Niesen for not giving up a run, but he still wasn't very impressive last night. I think we'll go with Luis Hernandez for pacing the Bisons suddenly explosive offense against former Mets affiliate Norfolk.
