AAA - Buffalo Bisons (43-61)_______________________________________
SCRANTON/WB 11, BUFFALO 2 (Box) Josh Satin settled further into the AAA swing by doubling his first at bat and table-setting a Mike Baxter smash. Woah, Mike's first at bat in the org! New guy power! As for the old guys, if there was ever any Mischtery to the Illinois-born lefty, it faded in the Yankee fourth; "Swing at a Misch" meant solid, repeated, deafening contact, and a three-inning long drubbing was too much for the Herd.
- 3B Josh Satin: 1-3, R, 2B, BB, K
- SS Ruben Tejada: 0-4
- RF Mike Baxter: 1-3, R, HR, 2 RBI, BB, 2 K; Who is this guy? The Mets claimed him Friday off waivers from San Diego. Dude's from Queens. He's also a 26-year-old with a .289/.370/.471 line across three AAA seasons, and is currently our youngest healthy outfielder in Buffalo. Toby Hyde has more. How cool? HR in his first AB for his home town team('s minor league affiliate.)
AA - Binghamton Mets (42-62)_____________________________________
PORTLAND 4, BINGHAMTON 2 (Box) SP Colin McHugh took an early beating but ended the contest on his feet, striking out seven and leaving the field with a one-run deficit but the game well in-reach. It looked promising when, in the 3rd, Matt Den Dekker and Reese Havens stood aboard with none out and red-hot Valdespin at the plate, but Jordany lined a straight-shot right into the 1st baseman's glove and Reese was doubled off the bag. (A bit later a ground rule double knocked MDD home, Wally was tossed, and that was the inning.) The other chance came in the 7th when Den Dekker was HBP and Valdespin chased him home. Both men also stole in that inning, but wouldn't you know an intentional walk worked out for the Sea Dogs and Dykstra knicked atmosphere for the fourth time of the night. Then got tossed.
- CF Matt Den Dekker: 2-4, 2 R, K, SB(6), HBP
- 1B Allan Dykstra: 0-4, 4 K
- SS Jordany Valdespin: 1-5, RBI, SB(31); the tight race between Valdespin Es (28) and SBs (31) continues!
- LF Juan Lagares: 2-4, SB(2)
- 2B Reese Havens: 2-4, 2 K
- RHP Colin McHugh: 6 IP, 4 H, 2 ER, 1 BB, 7 K
Hi-A St. Lucie Mets (17-14)________________________________________
DAYTONA 10, ST. LUCIE 5 (Box) To start the game SP Armando Rodriguez gave up a double, then a run-scoring two-base bunt (E1), then a homer, then an out!, then another homer before two more outs. The second inning it was much the same -- two doubles, a homer -- and he was hauling his hung head to the dugout. Wilmer went Big Fly in the fourth. The Mets strung together five singles in the fifth. Zapata scored Puello in the seventh. But despite those strong points, the Mets were still doubled up.
- RF Cory Vaughn: 0-4, 2 K
- 3B Jefry Marte: 0-4
- SS Wilmer Flores: 2-4, R, HR(7), 2 RBI
- CF Cesar Puello: 2-4, 2 R, 2B, K
- LHP Darin Gorski: X
- RHP Armando Rodriguez: 1.1 IP, 6 H, 7 R, 6 ER, 0 BB, 1 K, 3 HR
Lo-A Savannah Sand Gnats (21-11)__________________________________
LEXINGTON 0, SAVANNNAH 2 (Box) All was quiet for the first five innings, and SP Angel Cuan had struck out a most impressive nine men. It started with a walk, and then a steal. Luis Nieves stood on the middle bag, and Alonzo Harris flew one to the center field wall to collect his triple and help open a two-nothing lead. Angel tapped out at the heigh of his dominance -- 9 Ks, 0 BB, 1 H, 6 IP -- and his relief mate (Adam Kolarek) kept up the tradition, capping it.
- CF Darrell Ceciliani: 1-4, 2B, K
- DH Albert Cordero: 0-4, K
- LHP Angel Cuan: 6 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 9 K; 83.1 IP, 3.02, 79 H, 9 BB, 69 K, 7 HR
