*All results from games played on Monday, September 3rd, 2012
AAA - Buffalo Bisons (67-76)_______________________________________
Buffalo got the evening off
AA - Binghamton Mets (68-74)_____________________________________
TRENTON 8, BINGHAMTON 5 (Box)
Binghamton had a few hitters with fantastic days at the plate, but Gonzalez German was punished for basically every runner that got on base. Luckily for the B-Mets, their season is winding down relatively quickly.

- SS Wilfredo Tover: 3-5, 2 RBI, R

Lo-A - Savannah Sand Gnats (28-41)__________________________________
KANNAPOLIS 5, SAVANNAH 2 (Box)
.This seems like pretty typical Savannah baseball this season. Not enough runs, not quite enough pitching, and not quite the result we were after.
- CF Gilbert Gomez: 0-3, BB, 2 K
- C Albert Cordero: 1-3, BB
- RHP John Gant: 4.1 IP, 10 H, 5 ER, 5 K, 0 BB, HR
- CF Brandon Nimmo: 1-5, K
- SS Philip Evans: 2-5, RBI, K
- C Kevin Plawecki: 3-4, RBI, R
- 2B Juan Carlos Gamboa: 2-3
- RHP Luis Cessa: 8.2 IP, 6 H, ER, 2 K, BB
Short Season A - Brooklyn Cyclones (45-29)__________________________________
BROOKLYN 4, LOWELL 1 (Box)
It was an excellent starting pitching performance, and it turned into a much needed win for the Cyclones. The win combined with the Batavia loss puts Brooklyn a game clear in the wild card race with only two left to play.
Luis Cessa had a fantastic night in the only really meaningful game of the evening.
Goat of the Night
Brooklyn won, so we'll put the goat horns away for the evening.
