*All results from games played on Sunday, June 5th 2011
BUFFALO 5, GWINNETT 7 (Box)
Mark Cohoon made his second start at triple A, and it wasn't very impressive. Buffalo did absolutely nothing to help him through the first eight innings of the game, and their 5 run ninth inning rally came up just short as a result. It's no surprise that the run explosion happened to coincide with Mike Minor being removed from the game, as he was excellent on the evening and never let the Herd get going.
- RF Fernando Martinez: 0-1, RBI
- CF Kirk Nieuwenhuis: 1-4, R, K
- LF Lucas Duda: 1-4, R, RBI, 2 K
- SS Chin-Lung Hu: 0-1, K
- LHP Mark Cohoon: 5 IP, 8 H, 6 ER, 2 BB, 3 K, 2 HR
- LHP Mike O'Connor: 1 IP, 2 H, ER, HR
BINGHAMTON 3, AKRON 6 (Box)
Binghamton wasn't really very good last night. Collin McHugh made a very unimpressive start, allowing 12 baserunners in 4 1/3 innings of work. The Mets offense didn't bail him out, as they failed to get on the scoreboard until the 7th inning in this one. After showing signs of life in the 7th, the B-Mets offense went back to sleep for the 8th and 9th as Akron managed to avoid being swept.
- 2B Reese Havens: 0-3, BB, R
- LF Eric Campbell: 0-3
- IF Josh Satin: 0-4, K, RBI
- 1B Allan Dykstra: 1-3, RBI
- RHP Collin McHugh: 4.1 IP, 9 H, 4 ER, 3 BB, K
ST. LUCIE 2, PALM BEACH 3 (Box)
The Mets lost this one in walk off infield hit style, as Wilmer Flores made a nifty diving stop on a Xavier Scruggs grounder but was late with his throw going home. Quiet night for the St. Lucie offense, but the pitching was good enough to keep it a low scoring affair. At 29-28, St. Lucie remain tied for the division lead.
- SS Wilmer Flores: 0-4, K
- RF Cesar Puello: 0-2
- CF Matt den Dekker: 0-2, 2 BB, K
- 3B Jefry Marte: 0-4, K
- LF Juan Lagares: 1-3, RBI, BB
- 2B Rylan Sandoval: 0-4
- C Francisco Pena: 0-4, 2 K
- RHP Nick Carr: 2 IP, K
SAVANNAH 8, ASHEVILLE 5 (Box)
It wasn't a great outing for Greg Peavey, but the Gnats offense did enough to win the ballgame anyway. Savannah jumped out to an early lead, but after pitching four scoreless innings Peavy allowed 5 runs to cross the plate in the 5th and 6th innings. Darrell Ceciliani's homer in the Eighth broke the tie, and allowed the Gnats to improve on their organization best record and remain comfortably in first.
- 3B Aderlin Rodriguez: 2-5, 2B, RBI, K
- CF Darrell Ceciliani: 3-5, HR, 2 R, 2 RBI, K

- 2B Wilfredo Tovar: 2-4, 2B, R ,RBI
- SS Robbie Shields: 0-4, R, BB, 2 K
- C Blake Forsythe: 1-5, 2B, R
- RHP Greg Peavey: 6 IP, 8 H, 5 ER, 3 K, BB, 2 HR
- LHP Angel Cuan: 1.1 IP, 3 H, 2 BB
- LHP Josh Edgin: 1.2 IP, 4 K, BB
Star of the Night
Darrell Ceciliani has to be the star of last night, hitting a clutch home run to allow the Gnats to extend their division lead. A few nice plays in the field never hurt your cause either.
