AAA - Buffalo Bisons (35-46)_______________________________________
BUFFALO 7, LEHIGH VALLEY 5 (Box)
Pat Misch wasn't very good, allowing 12 baserunners and 3 homeruns despite earning the victory today. Nick Evans was fantastic, going 5-5 on the day off of former teammate Tim Redding and the Lehigh bullpen. In his last 19 games Evans is mashing the ball, batting .513 with 11 doubles and a trio of homers. Something tells me he won't clear waivers for a third time if we expose him again this season.
- RF Fernando Martinez: 1-5, R, 2 RBI, 3 K (.266/.322/.418)- Still healthy...
- 1B Nick Evans: 5-5, 2B, R (.328/.376/.503)- Has now hit in 19 straight games
- 2B Michael Fisher: 0-4, BB, R, 2 K (.273/.348/.392)
- LHP Pat Misch: 5.2 IP, 8 H, 5 ER, 4 BB, 8 K, 3 HR
AA - Binghamton Mets (28-49)_____________________________________
ERIE 9, BINGHAMTON 3 (Box)
Binghamton stayed in this one through the fifth, but it was all downhill from there as they conceded six runs in the last five innings. Allan Dykstra and Brahiam Maldonado were the shining stars in this one, with Maldonado hitting his 15th HR of the season. It's now been an entire trip through the rotation since the B-Mets had a starter last 5 innings, so hopefully we see that trend change real soon.
- IF Josh Satin:2-4, RBI, R (.317/.413/.521) - Quietly having a monster year
- 3B Eric Campbell: 0-4 (.193/.305/.256)
- CF Matt Den Dekker: 0-3, BB, R
- 1B Allan Dykstra: 2-3, BB, 2B, RBI (.264/.390/.433) - Still not Eddie Kunz...If he starts to show a little more power we could really be looking at a potential contributor
- SS Jordany Valdespin: 0-1 (.282/.332/.448)
- RHP Colin McHugh: 3.1 IP, 5 H, 3 ER, 5 BB, 3 K (28.1 IP, 4.13 ERA, 23 K, 14 BB, 2 HR)
Hi-A St. Lucie Mets (3-2)________________________________________
Lo-A Savannah Sand Gnats (6-1)__________________________________
SAVANNNAH 5, ROME 2 (Box)
The Gnats were tied heading into the 8th, but for the fifth consecutive game managed to take the lead with runs in the 8th or 9th to secure the win. Yohan Almonte had a very solid if unspectacular outing for the Gnats, and Aderlin Rodriguez pitched in with a pair of hits. The Gnats will look for the sweep of the four game set tomorrow night.
- CF Darrell Ceciliani: 1-4, K (.245/.342/.367)
- 3B Aderlin Rodriguez: 2-4, K, 2 R (.224/.274/.369)
- 2B Wilfredo Tovar: 1-4, RBI (.235/.292/.287)
- C Blake Forsythe: 0-3, BB, K (.209/.296/.330)
- RHP Yohan Almonte: 7 IP, 3 H, 2 ER, 3 K, 1 BB, 2 HR (55.2 IP, 3.72 ERA, 31 K, 8 BB, 10 HR)
Short Season A- Brooklyn Cyclones (8-5)_______________________________________
HUDSON VALLEY 1, BROOKLYN 0 (Box)
This probably wasn't a game most AL fans would have loved, as there were only 11 hits in total. Four Brooklyn pitchers combined to allow only eight baserunners on the evening, but a Chris Winder homer to lead off the eighth proved to be the difference in this one.
- CF Tillman Pugh: 1-4, HR, BB, RBI, 2 R
- LF Julio Concepcion: 1-4
- OF Gregory Pron: 1-3, BB, RBI, R
- 1B Alexander Sanchez: 1-4
- C Jeffrey Glenn: 2-3, HR, BB, RBI, 2 R
- RHP Akeel Morris: 5 IP, 3 R (2 ER), 8 K, 3 BB
