AA - Binghamton Mets (51-70)_____________________________________


It's amazing what adding a little talent to the roster will do for a team.  With the win last night the Mets won their third straight series.  Juan Lagares continues to be the man in Binghamton, and Allan Dykstra chipped in with a pinch hit bomb.  That was enough for Colin McHugh who has quietly been one of Binghamton's best pitchers since his arrival.

Hi-A St. Lucie Mets (27-23)________________________________________


The offense didn't do a whole lot for St. Lucie in this one, but they really didn't have to.  Armando Rodriguez dominated the Crabs for 7 innings, so the few runs that St. Lucie was able to scrape across didn't go to waste.


Lo-A Savannah Sand Gnats (30-18)__________________________________


The Gnats got down early when starter Ryan Fraser allowed 4 runs to get on the board and just couldn't find the equalizer in this one.  After Alberto Cordero tripled the Gnats to within 2, he broke for home on a booted ball and made a surprisingly sneaky slide around the tag to bring the Gnats within 1.  They would get the tying run on base in each of the last four innings, but were unable to deliver the hit required to bring them home.  

Applachian League (R)- Kingsport Mets (29-24)_______________________________________

Rafael Montero held Princeton in check for 6 innings, allowing only 3 baserunners in that time.  Unfortunately for him2 of them managed to get home on a homerun, but that was really the only blemish on his outing.  The bullpen then pitched 3 innings of 1 hit ball to secure the win, as the Mets provided more than enough offense in this one.

Gulf Coast League (R)- GCL Mets (23-23)_______________________________________



The Mets split their double header with the Nats, piling on the offense in both games.  Chin-Ling Hu even got in on the action, going 2-4 and raising his batting average in the GCL to an impressive .136.  Of note in this one is that Michael Fulmer made his second appearance, he faced only two batters before the game was called early.

 Star of the Night 

I'm going to pass out two gold stars today.  Juan Lagares gets one for his continued hot hitting in Binghamton.  With his 3-4 night he's now batting .407 in his time at AA.  Armando Rodriguez also gets a star with his dominant outing for St. Lucie.  He's old for his league, but it's hard to argue with the results he's had.  I'd like to see him get a cup of coffee in September, as he's one we'll likely have to add to the 40 if we don't want to lose him to the rule V draft this winter.

Goat of the Night

Ryan Fraser had a rough night for the Gnats to earn himself the horns tonight, in the process he's earned himself a set of horns.
