AAA - Buffalo Bisons (37-29)_______________________________________
NORFOLK 7, BUFFALO 8 (Box)
CF Matt Den Dekker walked in his first AAA at-bat, struck out twice, and doubled to spark a go-ahead 3-run rally on route to a tinglish 8-7 win for the Herd. MDD closes his Bingo career having gone .340/.397/.563 over 58 games in 2012, with 64 whiffs and 8 homers. The twenty five year old -- a year older than Nieuwenhuis -- enjoyed a thundering .223 ISO but also floated along on a .440 BABIP for that sunshiny average. In any case he's a boost to prospect watchers in Buffalo, and Lord knows we love him around here. SP Garret Olson was touched up some in his 4.2 and hit over the wall for half of the four run he allowed. Neither Egbert nor Edgin staunched the flow from the fifth inning on, but Pedro Beato struck out three in his one-and-two-thirds. 1B Josh Satin scored three runs and cranked a souvenir ball to the left field bleachers.
- CF Matt Den Dekker: 1-4, R, 2B, 1 BB, 2 K, CS(1)
- 1B Josh Satin: 1-3, 3 R, HR(4), 2 RBI
- 2B Brad Emaus: 0-4, K
- C Rob Johnson: 0-2, BB, K
- LHP Garrett Olson: 4.1 IP, 5 H, 4 ER, 2 BB, 3 K, 1 HR

- LHP Josh Edgin: 0.1, 1 H, 1 BB, 1 K
- RHP Pedro Beato: 1.2, 1 H, 3 K
AA - Binghamton Mets (29-30)_____________________________________
Hi-A St. Lucie Mets (48-16)________________________________________
PALM BEACH 7, ST. LUCIE 6 (Box)
The Mets turned four double plays, their center fielder legged out a pair of triples, they remained the St. Lucie Goddam Mets, but, kiss my grits, they lost. Wilmer Flores played second base for the third straight contest, and with the bat roped a double and drove home a pair of runs. With 2B Reese Havens' brutal hitting in Bingo, what exactly's in store? CF Alonzo Harris was the aforementioned base-taking pegasus and did nearly enough to wriggle RHP Tyler Pill, faulty through 5.1 innings, off the hook. Pill is still deciphering high-A hitting, with a .372 average-against in his two starts and three K's in 10 innings pitched.
- 2B Wilmer Flores: 1-4, R, 2B, 2 RBI, 2 K
- SS Wilfredo Tovar: 1-3, R, RBI, BB
- RF Cory Vaughn: 0-4, BB
- CF Alonzo Harris: 3-4, 2 R, 2 3B, 2 RBI, K
- RHP Tyler Pill: 5.1 IP, 8 H, 4 ER, 2 BB, 1 K, 1 HR
