New York Mets Daily Farm System Report - 7/30
*All results from games played on Friday, July 29th 2011
AAA - Buffalo Bisons (44-63)_______________________________________
BUFAALO 8, SCRANTON W-B 5 (Box)
Andrew Brackman no-hit the Bisons for 3 1/3 innings and then was promptly pulled from the game. Why, you might ask? Maybe it was because he walked 9 and hurled two wild pitches. The Bisons used 4 walks and three singles in the fourth inning to erase an early 4-0 Yanks lead and cruised from there. All in all, they drew 13 free passes on the night, including 4 from CF Fernando Perez and 3 from the returning Nick Evans.
- LF Nick Evans: 0-2, RBI, 3 BB
- 3B Josh Satin: 2-5, R, 2 RBI, K; Josh Satin doing Josh Satin things.
- SS Ruben Tejada: 1-3, 2 R, 2 BB; Tejada has scuffled a bit since his return to Buffalo
- RF Mike Baxter: 1-4, 3 RBI
ROSTER UPDATE - As you probably guessed up above 1B/OF Nick Evans was optioned back to Buffalo and once again cleared waivers. To make room professional stopgap IF Michael Fisher was optioned back to Binghamton to likely take the place of recently DL'ed
roster depthmiddle infielder Niuman Romero.

Ils ont commencé la moitié supérieure du sixième avec quatre droits choisit et puis une mouche de sac, avant Quebec's possèdent Jean que Luc-Blaquiere a frappé un double two-run puissant pour nouer le concours à 5. Blaquiere était loin de de finition, s'ajoutant encore deux courent le double dans le huitième, et le Binghamton le stylo de s s'est tenu dessus pendant la chère vie pour préserver la victoire.

Hi-A St. Lucie Mets (19-15 // 57-47)________________________________________
DUNEDIN 7, ST. LUICE 2 (Box)
Quite the blah loss for the Mets last night. Despite managing ten hits they only had four at-bats with RISP. RHP Kyle Allen ran into trouble in the sixth, and the bullpen was no help either. SS Wilmer Flores knocked a solo shot for St. Lucie, which is nice to see, but he also showed why the 'SS' next to his name is mostly honorary as his throwing error led to two unearned runs in the sixth.

- 3B Jefry Marte: 1-4, R, SB (10)
- SS Wilmer Flores: 1-4, HR (8), R, RBI, E (15)

Lo-A Savannah Sand Gnats (21-13 // 60-43)__________________________________
GREENSBORO 5, SAVANNAH 0 (Box)
Speaking of blah losses. RHP Ryan Fraser gave up three solo home runs to the Grasshoppers, while the Sand Gnats could only manage five hits total against Greensboro starter Robert Morey. Morey twirled a complete game shutout that lowered his ERA to 6.06 on the year. So, yeah, there's that.

- 2B Wilfredo Tovar: 1-4, K

Short Season A- Brooklyn Cyclones (23-17)_______________________________________
BROOKLYN 2, CONNECTICUT 0 (Box)
Another pitcher's duel at MCU and another night of late inning heroics for the Cyclones. RHP Marcos Camarena was excellent tonight, but he was matched by CT starter Brennan Smith. After he left the game, though, Brooklyn finally broke through with a two run double off the bat of 3B Brian Harrison in the bottom of the eighth, and the rehabbing RHP Eric Beaulac shut the door for the win.
- SS Danny Muno: 0-4
- RF Javier Rodriguez: 0-4, 2 K
- 3B Brian Harrison: 2-4, 2B, 2 RBI, 2 K

- CF Joe Tuschak: 0-3
- RHP Gabriel Ynoa: 4 IP, 0 ER, 2 H, 0 BB, 5 K, HBP
