Star of the Night

Some guy named Nick Evans broke out last night with a huge performance that included four extra-base hits and ten total bases.  Big Nick also crushed his 13th bomb on the season and with things looking dire in Buffalo's lineup, it really makes one wonder how much longer the Mets are going to deny his existence by leaving him in Bingo?  You hear about players falling out of favor with an organization but this is starting to get ridiculous.

For the second straight night the Goat was the Cyclones pitcher who gave it up late.  This time it was RHP Ryan Fraser whose three base on balls in the eighth inning probably took a year off of Wally Backman's life.

System Roundup

  • The long journey back below .500 finally ended last night as the Bisons lost to the Charlotte Knights 3-2.  Not much offense in this game as the recently demoted LHP Raul Valdes pitched quite well over four innings.  Unfortunately RHP Dylan Owen didn't take to the bullpen very well as he allowed three straight doubles and the eventual losing runs to begin the seventh.  All you need to know about this one is that the Herd offense was 0-for-1 with RISP. Boxscore
  • Despite kind of a rough Binghamton debut for LHP Mark Cohoon, the B-Mets managed to win this one 11-6 over Akron.  Chalk this one up to the offense as they B-Mets lineup compiled fourteen hits and went 5-for-12 with RISP while scoring in six of nine innings.  Though the newly promoted RF Raul Reyes hit two homers, the star in this was Big Nick Evans who went 4-for-5 with three doubles and a bomb, driving. Boxscore
  • St. Lucie took this one 7-2 over Palm Beach in RHP Brandon Moore's debut.  With the exception of a two-run shot in the fourth, Moore was strong in his first start in Hi-A and it didn't hurt that the Mets offense hung a four-spot right away.  SS Wilmer Flores, C Kai Gronauer, 2B Jordany Valdespin & the rehabbing CF Carlos Beltran all had multi-hit games as the lineup was 5-for-13 with RISP. Boxscore
  • Who said the Sand Gnats could score?  They were shut out last night by a couple of Tourists in a 5-0 defeat at home.  Despite matching Asheville in the hits column, Savannah wasn't able to put anything together thanks to an 0-for-7 with RISP and just one XBH on the night.  RHP Collin McHugh did his best to keep them in this one but a very costly error in the sixth opened the flood gates for Asheville to score all five of their runs. Boxscore
  • For the second night in a row the Cyclones lost on a blown save, falling to the Aberdeen IronBirds 3-2.  Though seven of nine Cyclones had hits, only two were of the extra-base variety.  And going into the eighth, Brooklyn led 2-1 when RHP Ryan Fraser lost the strike zone, walking three batters and giving up a single to give this one away. Boxscore
  • In a reversal from Friday, the K-Mets were shut out 8-0 by Elizabethton as their pitching was suspect and their offense was punchless.  The Twins managed to score off of RHP Jacob DeGrom in each of the first three innings and at that point this game was basically over. Boxscore
  • The GCL Mets won again yesterday by the score of 4-3 over the GCL Marlins.  After giving up three early runs in the first, the Mets pitching didn't allow anything else for the rest of the day.  Meanwhile, little by little the offense managed to chip away until the bottom of the ninth when SS Randoll Santana provided a walk-off single, driving in Dutch 3B Marinus VernooijBoxscore
