Clean sweep night for the Mets affiliates as they all got in on the winning.

AAA - Buffalo Bisons (5-6)_______________________________________


It wasn't a good showing for Matt Harvey, but a 5 run 6th and a late game tying rally put the Bisons in a position to win this one in the 10th. Jordany Valdespin got the game-winning single (video below) to lead the Bisons to victory as they came back from 6 down earlier in the game.

INJURY UPDATE - Everyone's favorite little lefty Daniel Herrera has been placed on the DL with a left elbow sprain. As a result, Brad Holt was optioned up to Triple-A to take his place; as you can see above he didn't fare very well in his debut.

Video evidence of Valdy's walk-off; gotta love that quick-whip bat speed:

AA - Binghamton Mets (4-5)_____________________________________


Greg Peavey and Armando Rodriguez were both solid today, but neither really needed to be as the Binghamton bats were alive today. Juan Lagares continued to pile up the walks as he continues to show more polish this season.

INJURY UPDATE(S) - According to Lynn Worthy of the Binghamton Press & Bulletin, Allan Dykstra appears to have suffered a fractured wrist. Additionally, Jefry Marte left Sunday's game in the second inning with tightness in his hamstring.


ROSTER UPDATE - With Brad Holt shipped out to Buffalo, infielder Rylan Sandoval (pictured, above) was added to the Binghamton roster. The 24-yr old Sandoval batted .224 with eight home runs with St. Lucie in 2011.

Additionally, congrats to B-Mets starter Greg Peavey who was named the Eastern League Pitcher of the Week today after his very first week in Double-A. The 2010 sixth rounder out of Oregon St. won both his starts in that span, throwing 10.2 scoreless innings and striking out nine batters while walking just one.

Hi-A St. Lucie Mets (8-2)________________________________________


The Mets had a rough start to this one, as Angel Cuan got beat up a little bit in the first inning. All 4 Charlotte runs were scored in the bottom of the first, but like the Bisons the Mets fought back. A four run 7th highlighted by a Francisco Pena double would put the Mets ahead for good as the Mets continue to pace the FSL.

INJURY UPDATE: Fresh off of his best game of the year last Monday (4-for-5, HR) Darrell Ceciliani was sidelined by a strained right hamstring. He was finally placed on the DL today, retroactive to last Tuesday. At least Puello is back to take his spot in center. Additionally, Cory Vaughn was placed on the Temporary Inactive List for reasons unknown to me.

Lo-A Savannah Sand Gnats (7-4)__________________________________


Dustin Lawley got the Gnats going with a 2 run shot in the 2nd and it was smooth sailing from there on out. Tyler Pill again looked very solid for the Gnats, and Aderlin Rodriguez was again good at the plate and bad in the field.

Star of the Night

There were a bunch of good performances, but no real standout ones tonight. With that in mind, Travis Taijeron had a very nice night at the plate for the Gnats and will be seeing stars for his work.
