RK - Kingsport (28-35)
Game One
  • LF ZeErika McQueen: 1-4, R, K
  • CF Chase Greene: 0-3, BB, K; The '09 16th rounder probably would have been best served going to USF like he'd planned; hopefully his extreme athleticism will win out in the long term

  • Camden Maron: 0-3, R, BB, K (.313/.411/.438) '09 34th rounder out of Huntington, LI getting his first chance and playing quite well
  • SP Ernesto Yanez: 5 IP, 1 ER, 4 H, 1 BB, 4 K, WP (1-2, 3.86, 32.2 IP, 28 H, 11 BB, 18 K, 1 HR) Very nice performance in only his third start after a strong year out of the 'pen

    Star of the Night

    Staying with the theme of stellar pitching, today's Star is Bingo's LHP Mark Cohoon after his eight very strong innings in Sunday's 4-2 victory.  After a rocky start, Cohoon has clearly figured out Double-A hitters as he has been dominant of late (see: 1.63 ERA over his last five starts).  What Cohoon lacks in stuff, he makes up for in pitching smarts (aka pitchability) and could easily end up in the majors as a back of the rotation, innings-eating lefty (a la Zack Duke).

    The Goat of the Night is Kingsport's RHP Steve Winnick who came into the ninth with a 3-0 lead and walked off the mound having lost the game 4-3.  Well done.


    System Roundup
  • The Bisons went down early in this one and never found their way back as they lost to the Yankees 5-1.  LHP Michael Antonini dug a three run hole early (including one of Yankees top prospect Jesus Montero's two homers in this game) but actually buckled down to pitch five more decent innings.  Unfortunately, the offense didn't show in this one as they totaled a single run on just two hits.  Boxscore 
  • Binghamton topped Reading yesterday 4-2 on the strength of yet another strong pitching performance by LHP Mark Cohoon.  This was his finest start since joining the ranks of Double-A, going eight innings and allowing just two unearned runs on five hits.  Offensively, another bomb from 3B Zack Lutz and an RBI hit from LF Eric Campbell (only his fourth since returning) would be all the offense Binghamton would need.  Boxscore 
  • St. Lucie rolled over Fort Myers yesterday 10-2.  You know you're in good shape when you've got four times as many hits as the other guys.  All but one Mets starter had a hit in this game, six of them had multiple hits and as a whole the team went 10-for-20 with RISP.  On the mound, LHP Jim Fuller had his best start since joining Hi-A going five scoreless with just two hits allowed.  Boxscore
  • The Cyclones dropped this one to Connecticut 6-3 on Sunday.  LHP Angel Cuan garnered just his first L on the season with a medicore, five inning performance followed by an even worse relief effort by RHP Wes Wrenn.  The bats were also uncharacteristically quiet, managing just four hits, though one was a 3-run bomb by RF Cory Vaughn.  Boxscore  
  • In game one, Kingsport was playing really well up until the ninth when they gave up all four runs in thieir 4-3 loss to Bristol.  Non-drafted free agent LHP Chase Huchingson was much better in his second start with Kingsport and hard thrower RHP Tony Feliz threw two solid innings of scoreless relief but unfortunately in his second inning of relief, RHP Steve Winnick gave up four runs to blow it in the ninth.  All three K-Mets runs came on an Aderlin Rodriguez bomb in the fourth.  Boxscore  In game two, Bristol pitching just completely shut down the K-Mets bats in this 2-1 loss.  The lineup managed just three hits total and didn't score until the ninth.  Starter RHP Eduardo Aldama wasn't bad, surrendering a couple runs over five decent innings.  Boxscore
  • The GCL Mets topped the Astros 6-1 thanks to some very strong pitching on Sunday.  RHP Ernesto Yanez made only his third start of the year but was very strong over five innings. The twenty year old was mostly a starter in his first couple pro season in Venezuela and the DR but has mostly pitched in relief this season.  The lineup scored all six of their runs in an interesting second inning that included 3 hits, 3 hit batsmen a couple of misplays and an error.  Boxscore
