New York Mets Daily Farm System Report - 7/16
*All results from games played on Friday, July 15th 2011
AAA - Buffalo Bisons (40-53)_______________________________________
BUFFALO 8, ROCHESTER 4 (Box)
Make it two in a row of the all-star break for the Bisons as the offense provided LHP Pat Misch with plenty of support, make no mischtake about it. Buffalo wasted no time in this one, loading the bases in the first and then unloading them, via a three-run double by DH Valentino Pascucci off of the rehabbing Kevin Slowey. Neither the Pascucci or the Bisons stopped there. Valentino added a solo home run in the fifth, and 2B Luis Hernandez chipped in with a 3 RBI game. Yes, that Luis Hernandez
- RF Fernando Martinez: 0-3, R, BB, K
- 1B Zach Lutz: 2-5, 2 R, K
- 3B Michael Fisher: 2-5, 2 R; After his hot start in AAA, just a .521 OPS this month.
AA - Binghamton Mets (36-57)_____________________________________
NEW HAMPSHIRE 4, BINGHAMTON 2 (Box)
Binghamton feel to the Fisher Cats in a brisk, unremarkable contest that clocked in at two and a quarter hours. Binghamton's bats were quiet, save for back to back solo home runs from 2B Josh Satin and SS Jordany Valdespin. The B-Mets didn't manage a hit with RISP, and although LHP Robert Carson didn't have an outstanding start, he wasn't exactly helped out by his hitters.
- 2B Josh Satin: 1-4, HR (11), R, RBI, K
- 3B Eric Campbell: 1-4
- CF Matt Den Dekker: 1-4, 2B, 2 K; K-rate has jumped in AA. Can't say that I am that surprised, and it wasn't that low to begin with.
- DH Allan Dykstra: 0-4, K
- SS Jordany Valdespin: 1-4, HR (11), R, RBI, E (24)
- RHP Brad Holt: 2 IP, 0 ER, 0 H, 0 BB, 3 K; 17 Ks in 11.1 as a reliever. Unfortunately 8 BBs as well.
- LHP Robert Carson: L, 7 IP, 4 R, 3 ER, 9 H, 1 BB, 3 K
Hi-A St. Lucie Mets (11-9 // 49-41)________________________________________
LAKELAND 2, ST. LUCIE 1 (Box)
St. Lucie's new third baseman wasn't enough to help them get by the Flying Tigers, despite a rare serviceable start from RHP Scott Moviel. Moviel and the bullpen held Lakeland to just two runs, but outside of a first inning double by some guy named Wright, the Mets were held without an extra base hit. This Wright fella would also score St. Lucie's only run of the game on a two out single by DH Jefry Marte. The game took over four hours to finish, with a nice 93 minute break in the middle to watch the Florida skies open up.
- LF Juan Lagares: 1-5, K
- RF Cory Vaughn: 1-4, K
- 3B Jefry Marte: 1-4, RBI
- SS Wilmer Flores: 1-4
- RF Cesar Puello: 0-4, 3 K
Lo-A Savannah Sand Gnats (15-7 // 54-37)__________________________________
SAVANNNAH 4, LEXINGTON 2 (Box)
LHP Angel Cuan continues to be a pleasant surprise for the Sand Gnats. Since his promotion to starter to replace the St. Lucie bound Greg Peavey, he has posted three wins and a 17:3 K:BB ratio. Tonight the diminutive lefty held the Legends to just a single run in six innings of work. CF Darrell Ceciliani bounced back from last night's goatworthy performance to go 2-5 with an RBI, and the rest of Savannah's line-up did just enough to eek out a win and maintain their stranglehold on the South Atlantic League South Division
- CF Darrell Ceciliani: 2-5, 2B, R, RBI, K, CS
- 3B Aderlin Rodriguez: 0-4, 2 K
- SS Wilfredo Tovar: 1-4
- C Blake Forsythe: 1-3, BB
- LHP Angel Cuan: W, 6 IP, 1 ER, 4 H, 0 BB, 2 K, 1 HR
Short Season A- Brooklyn Cyclones 14-13)_______________________________________
BROOKLYN 10, AUBURN 4 (Box)
- SS Danny Muno: 3-3, 2B, 3 R, 2 RBI, BB; Bat is the ticket to the majors and is hitting .388, so I guess, so far, so good.
- DH Javier Rodriguez: 2-5, R, RBI, K
- CF Travis Taijeron: 0-4, K
- LHP Carlos Vazquez: W, 5 IP, 1 ER, 2 H, 2 BB, 4 K; Along with Aldama, has given the Cyclones a strong 1-2 punch this year.
- RHP Cory Mazzoni: 1 IP, 0 ER, 2 H, 0 BB, 2 K
- DH Camden Maron: 1-4, R, K
- CF Tillman Pugh: 0-4, 3 K
- LF Julio Concepcion: 0-4, 2 K
- OF Gregory Pron: 0-4, 3 K
- C Jeffrey Glenn: 0-2, BB, K
- CF Joe Tuschak: 0-5, R, 2 K; Pro debut for the Mets 2011 6th round pick.
- 1B Jeyckol De Leon: 0-1
- RF Gilbert Gomez: 1-4, 2B, R, RBI
- 1B Ryan Hutson: 2-2, 2B, R, BB
- SS Randoll Santana: 2-4, K
★ Star of the Night ★
Brooklyn SS Danny Muno gets the honors tonight. I was a bit hard on him in my report earlier this week, and I would like to reiterate that he is not a shortstop, but he can hit, as today's 3-3 brought him up to .388/.508/.571 on the season. Now he is a college guy in the NYPL, and we shouldn't get too excited about a 14 game sample size. You have my permission to nod approvingly, though.
