New York Mets Daily Farm System Report - Results from the night of Tuesday June 8, 2010.

The Usual Suspects

AAA - Buffalo (33-26)

  • 3B Mike Hessman: DNP (.291/.369/.624); injury? I can’t find any reason why he hasn’t been playing
  • 1B Val Pascucci: 0-4, 2 K (.241/.343/.500)
  • DH Mike Jacobs: 1-4, 2 K (.280/.320/.512)
  • SP Dillon Gee: 4.1 IP, 6 ER, 8 H, 4 BB, 4 K, 2 HR (6-3, 4.37 ERA, 70.0 IP, 69 H, 23 BB, 65 K, 12 HR); having some trouble with the home run this season

AA - Binghamton (28-29)

  • CF Kirk Nieuwenhuis: 2-6, 2 R, BB, 2 K (.286/.327/.469); 0-3 in the first, 2-3 in the second

  • RP Eddie Kunz: 2.0 IP, 1 ER, 2 H, 0 BB, 0 K, 0 HR (4-4, 5.77 ERA, 53.0 IP, 53 H, 31 BB, 30 K, 2 HR)

Hi-A - St. Lucie (27-29)

Lo-A Savannah (35-25)

Star of the Night

It’s absolutely Richard Lucas. Not only did he single home the winning run in last night’s game, but he also had a home run and another single. The former fourth round pick has had a miserable season so far, though he does have some pop, posting a decent .143 ISO. He’s had a very up-and-down career so far but showed some promise in 2009 when he hit .318/.414/.534 across the two Rookie ball levels and Brooklyn. In typical Mets fashion, they decided to let him skip Savannah this year (probably because they couldn’t justify promoting Jefry Marte), and he’s been absolutely overmatched, striking out 65 times in about 200 plate appearances. Maybe last night’s game means he’s turning things around.

Our Goat of the Night is Dillon Gee, who just didn’t have it on Tuesday. Jim Fuller was really just as bad, too.

System Roundup

  • Buffalo scored no runs on one hit ... that’s all we got? One goddamn hit? Ah, well. Buffalo was held scoreless for the second straight night as Durham starter Carlos Hernandez and two relievers held the Bisons to just one hit, that coming off the bat of Mike Jacobs. Meanwhile, Dillon Gee had a poor outing. Final score: Bulls 7, Bisons 0.
  • Binghamton played two seven-inning affairs against Bowie yesterday to make up for a rainout. In the first, the B-Mets’ offense couldn’t get anything going, and they were shutout by Chorye Spoone, 5-0. The Mets got their offense going in the second game, and Brad Holt was effective enough to win, 6-3. Kirk Nieuwenhuis and Reese Havens had two hits apiece.
  • Richard Lucas singled home Josh Satin in the top of the ninth inning last night to give St. Lucie a 4-3 victory over Dunedin. Robert Carson had a strong outing, and Lucas and Brahiam Maldonado each hit homers.
  • Savannah outslugged Kannapolis, 8-7 in 10 innings last night. Lefty Jim Fuller had his first bad outing of the season, combining with Samuel Martinez to allow seven runs in 5 1/3 innings.  However, John Church and Michael Powers shut down the Intimidators’ offense the rest of the way allowing the Gnats to tie up the game in the top of the 9th and win it in the 10th. Four Sand Gnats had multi-hit games and Cesar Puello's single drove in Kai Gronauer for the game-winning run.
