Star of the Night

Our Star is Justin Turner, who had three hits for Buffalo yesterday in possibly the lone offensive standout in the Mets organization yesterday. One of those hits was a solo homer and another was an RBI single.

The Goat is Savannah start Darin Gorski for simply sucking yesterday afternoon. Gorski has pretty decent control, but is decidedly homer-prone due to an extreme fly ball rate, and he doesn’t quite get enough strikeouts to make up for it.

System Roundup

  • Buffalo won a walk-off against Rochester on Wednesday, winning 7-6 in the bottom of the ninth. Starter Dillon Gee ran into trouble in the sixth inning when he and Sean Green combined to give up four runs to put the Bisons behind, 6-3. But the offense answered right back with three more runs in the bottom of the inning to tie the score. The tie held until the bottom of the ninth, when Justin Turner led off with a walk, made his way to second, and scored on a one-out single by Mike Cervenak. Boxscore
  • Mark Cohoon pitched six solid innings, and Manuel Alvarez and Roy Merritt threw three scoreless innings in relief, as Binghamton beat New Hampshire, 5-2. The B-Mets’ offense overcame 11 strikeouts to bring home enough runs to win. Jose Coronado had three hits out of the leadoff spot, and Brahiam Maldonado chipped in his ninth home run. . Boxscore
  • Brandon Moore threw six strong innings, but St. Lucie’s relief corps gave up one run over each of the game’s final three innings, and St. Lucie lost to Palm Beach, 4-1. The offense was dreadful yet again, managing just two singles from Kai Gronauer and Richard Lucas and a double by Joey August. You know it’s a bleak game when ordinary singles are offensive highlights. Boxscore
  • Giants 2009 first-rounder Zack Wheeler made the start against the Sand Gnats yesterday, and he was a little wild, issuing four walks and a wild pitch in four innings, but Savannah starter Darin Gorski was just plain awful in a 9-1 loss to Augusta. He allowed eight runs over four innings, giving up seven hits—two of them home runs—and three walks. The Savannah offense had only six singles. Boxscore
  • The Cyclones went back to work on Wednesday and lost to the Staten Island Yankees, 3-1. The Cyclones scored a run in the first inning on a Jeff Flagg double but were held scoreless the rest of the way. The Yankees then took the lead in the seventh on a solo homer and an RBI groundout off Adam Kolarek. Boxscore
  • Kingsport had the day off.
  • The GCL Mets also had the day off.
