AAA - Buffalo Bisons (57-59)_______________________________________
SYRACUSE 5, BUFFALO 4 (Box)
BUFFALO 4, SYRACUSE 3 (Box)
Double dipper for the herd yesterday, and both Mets starters were good but not great. Wheeler ran up 101 pitches (61 for strikes) in his under 5 inning outing, while Mejia was pulled after just 72 as he stretches back out. Both did a nice job of inducing grounders in the double header, combining for 11 groundball outs to 4 flyouts.

AA - Binghamton Mets (54-60)_____________________________________
Binghamton had the evening off
Hi-A - St. Lucie Mets (21-23)________________________________________
Like the AA bunch, St. Lucie were not in action last night.
Lo-A - Savannah Sand Gnats (18-27)__________________________________
ASHEVILLE 3, SAVANNAH 2 (Box)
.Michael Fulmer was hitable, but he got enough punchouts and control to keep the Gnats in touch. Unfortunately the Gnats would only grind out a pair of runs despite another solid outing from Cam Maron.

Short Season A - Brooklyn Cyclones (30-18)__________________________________
BROOKLYN 3, AUBURN 1 (Box)
Brooklyn are putting together their usual goo season, and they ground out another win last night. Kevin Plawecki and Stefan Sabol homers were all the offense that the Brooklyn pitching staff would need against Auburn.
Appalachian League (R) - Kingsport Mets (14-29)__________________________________
PRINCETON 9, KINGSPORT 1 (Box)
I guess this result shouldn't really come as a surprise. Kingsport has had a rough year to date, and last night was more of the same. Poor pitching plus poor hitting leads to lopsided losses.
★ Star of the Night ★
Last night was a hard one to choose a star, as there was a bunch of good but very little great. I'm going to pass the star out to Cam Maron though, as he had another solid night at the plate and really looks like an interesting catching prospect going forward.
Goat of the Night
Unlike the star of the night, there are plenty of good options to choose from here. Andrew Massie had a pretty poor evening though, so Massie gets the horns.
