Star of the Night

It was a light day for the Mets’ minors, and kind of a so-so one at that, so I’ll do the sentimental thing and select Luke Stewart for his first pro homer, a two-run homer in the seventh for Kingsport. Stewart was drafted out of UAB in the 20th round of this year’s draft after smacking 21 homers as a senior. Stewart’s had some trouble hitting for average in the past, and the bat just isn’t very fast. But he is tall and strong, and he has an extremely patient approach at the plate—maybe even too patient. I’d keep an eye on him, but I’m not expecting too much.

The Goat of the Night is Jeff Flagg who is really in a rough spell right now.

System Roundup

  • The International and Pacific Coast Leagues played their All-Star Game last night with the IL winning, 2-1. The only Bison to appear was Pat Misch, who threw a scoreless fifth inning, walking one and striking out two. Boxscore
  • It was also All-Star night for the Eastern League. The West destroyed the East, 10-3. Kirk Nieuwenhuis, Mike Nickeas, and Josh Stinson played for the Mets. Nieuwenhuis and Nickeas both went 0-2 with a strikeout, while Stinson pitched a perfect second, recording a strikeout. Boxscore
  • St. Lucie won a walk-off on Wednesday, beating Dunedin 4-3. Eric Beaulac gave up three first-inning runs, but he, Scott Moviel, and Ryota Igarashi held the D-Jays scoreless the rest of the way. St. Lucie tied the game in the third but had to wait until the last at-bat of the game to take the lead, as Ryan Mollica singled home Hector Pellot to win it. Luis Castillo also began his rehab assignment, going 0-2 with a walk. Boxscore
  • After Darin Gorski provided seven innings of three-hit ball, relievers Brandon Sage and Luis Rojas let it get away and the Sand Gnats lost, 4-2 to Greenville. Cesar Puello and Juan Torres had two hits apiece, while Alex Gregory and Nick Santomauro each had a double, but that was pretty much it from the offense. Actually, there’s no "pretty much" about it—that was it. Boxscore
  • Brooklyn played Mahoning Valley, winning 7-4. Five Cyclones had multi-hit games, while Rylan Sandoval and Cory Vaughn hit home runs. Boxscore
  • Jake deGrom pitched well despite hitting some trouble in the sixth inning, but the bats gave him plenty of backup as Kingsport beat Bluefield, 8-3. First baseman Luke Stewart hit his first professional home run, while Aderlin Rodriguez, Javier Rodriguez, and Justin Schafer each had a pair of hits. Boxscore
  • The GCL Mets had the day off.
