The Usual Suspects
AAA - Buffalo (35-31)
- CF Fernando Martinez: 0-3, RBI (.267/.315/.455)
- PH Val Pascucci: 0-1 (.203/.322/.405)
- LF Lucas Duda: 1-4, 3B, 2 RBI, K (.250/.250/.500); Lucas Duda: triple machine
- 1B Mike Jacobs: 0-3, R, BB (.264/.303/.492)
- C Josh Thole: 2-4, R (.283/.354/.462); third straight multi-hit game, .433 (13-for-30) in his last 10 games
- SP Dylan Owen: 5.0 IP, 2 ER, 6 H, 2 BB, 3 K, 0 HR (3-2, 5.73 ERA, 33.0 IP, 39 H, 10 BB, 31 K, 3 HR); kind of a luke warm outing
- RP Manny Acosta: 1.0 IP, 0 ER, 0 H, 0 BB, 1 K, 0 HR (1-2, 3.92 ERA, 20.2 IP, 19 H, 8 BB, 19 K, 2 HR)
AA - Binghamton (30-34)
- CF Sean Ratliff: 1-4, 2 K (..250/.250/.250); a little surprised they promoted him, given his extreme K/BB ratio
- 1B Nick Evans: 2-4, R, BB (.275/.347/.514)
- 2B Josh Satin: 0-5, 2 K (.000/.000/.000); rough first game in Double-A
- 3B Eric Campbell: 0-4, K (.318/.372/.459)
- SP Mike Antonini: 4.2 IP, 4 ER, 5 H, 3 BB, 3 K, 0 HR (4-5, 4.26 ERA, 74.0 IP, 71 H, 11 BB, 49 K, 10 HR); had been looking better of late
- RP Scott Shaw: 1.1 IP, 0 ER, 1 H, 0 BB, 3 K, 0 HR (4-5, 7.15 ERA, 56.2 IP, 71 H, 25 BB, 37 K, 10 HR); maybe relief is the best role for him
- RP Eddie Kunz: 1.0 IP, 1 ER, 1 H, 2 BB, 0 K, 0 HR (4-4, 5.46 ERA, 57.2 IP, 55 H, 36 BB, 32 K, 2 HR)
- ROSTER MOVES: As mentioned yesterday, injuries to Havens (re-aggravated oblique strain - day-to-day) and Nieuwenhuis (strained shoulder - 2 weeks) necessitated some additions and so St. Lucie all-stars and Pac-10 products 2B Josh Satin and CF Sean Ratliff were both promoted. Satin was about ready for this call anyway, Ratliff not as much but it'll be interesting to keep an eye on these two either way.
Hi-A - St. Lucie (29-31)
- SS Jordany Valdespin: 1-4, K (.304/.336/.500)
- 2B Wilfredo Tovar: 1-4, RBI, K (.274/.299/.357)
- 1B Stefan Welch: 1-4, 2 K (.300/.354/.468); with Campbell, Ratliff, and Satin gone, now the best hitter in St. Lucie
- SP Jeurys Familia: 4.0 IP, 5 ER, 4 H, 3 BB, 2 K, 0 HR, 2 WP, Balk (0-4, 6.91 ERA, 43.0 IP, 46 H, 29 BB, 42 K, 1 HR); also gave up three unearned runs
Lo-A Savannah (39-26)
- SS Wilmer Flores: 1-4, RBI, K (.286/.352/.451)
- LF Juan Lagares: 2-4, R (.300/.316/.467)
- DH Nick Santomauro: 0-4, R (.150/.189/.180); I love seeing OBAs that are higher than SLGs, especially when the OBA is just .189
- 3B Jefrey Marte: 2-4, R, K (.249/.329/.368); seven hits in his last eleven at-bats
- 2B Alonzo Harris: 0-3 (.240/.275/.376)
- SP Jimmy Fuller: 6.2 IP, 1 ER, 4 H, 1 BB, 5 K, 0 HR (5-2, 1.95 ERA, 78.1 IP, 59 H, 23 BB, 77 K, 0 HR); the home run rate is fluky, but the team should think about a promotion here
Star of the Night
I’m a little short on time this morning, so I’ll make this quick. The Star is Jimmy Fuller. There wasn’t a ton of excitement in the system yesterday or offense, so I’m taking the consistent starter who gave a typical strong performance. Fuller doesn’t have outstanding stuff, but he has enough deception and enough of a changeup to make me think he could help the team in some role at some point.
Our Goat is Jeurys Familia. Giving up eight runs, even if three are unearned, will do that to you.
- Lucas Duda hit a two-run triple to cap off a four-run fifth inning that turned out to be the only scoring Buffalo needed in a 7-3 victory over Lehigh Valley. The Bisons’ only had nine hits, the same number Lehigh Valley had, but they strung them together better and were helped by a pair of IronPig errors.
- A rough third inning from starter Mike Antonini led to three Richmond runs, and Binghamton lost, 5-2. Omir Santos, Josh Satin, and Sean Ratliff combined to strike out seven times. Nick Evans and DJ Wabick did manage two hits apiece.
- Jeurys Familia didn’t have it on Tuesday, and a St. Lucie offense devoid of talent due to recent promotions was only able to scrounge up one run, as the Mets lost to Bradenton, 13-1. Every reliever the Mets brought in—Marcos Tabata, Elvin Ramirez, Jimmy Johnson—failed to hold Bradenton scoreless. Emmanuel Garcia hit the team’s sole extra-base hit, a double.
- A couple of seventh inning errors by Rome aided two of Savannah’s three runs on Tuesday, as Savannah won 3-2. Reliever Erik Turgeon blew the save in that seventh inning, but wound up getting credited with the victory. This win, coupled with an Augusta loss puts the Gnats back into a tie for first place in the SAL with 5 games to go. They're fighting for their first playoff appearance since 1996.
